We have just returned from a lovely stay at Oak Farm Cottage. The cottage was very clean, well equipped and very comfortable. John and Karen were very welcoming and the hamper and toiletries they provided were nice little touches. The private outdoor space and the use of the indoor swimming pool were fabulous. 
We spent most mornings in the pool and the afternoons exploring Norfolk. Our favourites were Holkham hall for the playground and the walks and Wiverton hall for a relaxed afternoon. There is a lovely walk to Blakeney from the grounds of Wiverton hall and by chance when we arrived back to Wiverton hall it was pizza night from the wood fired oven. Highly recommended.
Thank you for a lovely stay.
