Lovely village and characterful, cosy cottage with everything we needed. Very well stocked village shop, good pub. October 2016
What a lovely, comfortable cottage, we could not have wanted for more. A great area to explore, lots to do and see. The Chequers made us very welcome, excellent food. Thank you North Norfolk. October 2016
A most enjoyable stay in this lovely cottage. Ideal location for visiting the wonderful coastline. Had two superb meals at the Chequers. Lovely, well appointed, clean cottage. Really pretty village, great little shop next door, friendly owner and all the essentials. Do try the raw milk down the road. July 2016
