Cosy cottage in great location
This is a lovely place to stay, cosy and comfortable and in a great location for exploring Norfolk. In particular the communication with the owner were fantastic.
Lovely cottage, great pub food close by
Goleby's Cottage is small but extremely well equipped, perfect if you like to have a comfortable base where you spend some time relaxing and self-catering, while exploring the local area and eating out as well. The Greyhound Pub is a (very) short walk and does great food, particularly the fish dishes. A slightly longer 20 minute walk takes you down to the Hickling Broad where we took a paddleboarding lesson with Norfolk Outdoor Adventures which is based just next to the Pleasureboat Inn, great for a drink (not such good food). The closest beach is Sea Palling, golden sand and rock sea defences that provide sheltered bays, with eateries and shops for everything you need on the beach (just don't go on a hot bank holiday when the queue for the car park ticket machine is 50 metres long!). No shop in Hickling but nearest Tescos is 10 mins drive. Norwich is about half an hour away, well worth a visit especially the cathedral, and Burgh Castle / Roman fort was also a great day out with the dog and a picnic (paths and board walk).
Thanks to our hosts for providing a lovely welcome, lots of information on local attractions and great communication throughout.
We had a super lovely time at Golebys. The cottage is so well equipped, and in the perfect location to explore. We particularly liked Sea Palling and winterton. Our dogs have had such a great time on the beaches. And we enjoyed the local pubs with great food ! Never been somewhere so dog friendly.
Wonderful property with lots of extras provided by the hosts
A property full of character and very tastefully furnished with all amenities. Very accurately described in the listing and very kind of the hosts to leave tea, coffee, milk and even 2 pots of jam for us on arrival. The area is superb and only 15 minutes walk to Hickling Broad, or 15 minutes drive to the sea. We would not hesitate in recommending this property to future hirers. Message from our dog - thanks for the doggy treats on arrival !!!
Lovely Norfolk cottage
We stayed in a delightful village in a lovely old cottage which was very well equipped and cosy. It was conveniently situated for both the Broads and the coast in a village with two pubs serving food. The owners left us milk and jam which was appreciated; all was clean and well-kept.
Coast / Beach:
Nær Norfolk Broads og Norfolk-kysten. Mindre enn 10 minutters kjøring til nærmeste strand for Sea Palling, bare 3 miles away. Vakreste strekninger av gyllen sand, familie og hunden vennlig. En seglkoloni kan ses på Horsey Beach. Hickling Broad ligger 10 minutters gange unna.
En bil er anbefalt å utforske området, men ikke avgjørende på grunn av lokal buss.
Essentials kan kjøpes i en lokal landsby pub og Stalham er 3 miles unna med sine high street butikker, slaktere, takeaways og en Tesco butikk.
Hickling Broad er den største av de brede, som kan utforskes med båt eller stier. Hickling Nature Reserve, drevet av Norfolk Wildlife Trust, er det perfekte stedet for fugletitting. Fugler du kan forvente å se er det felles kran, pinnsvin, mars harrier, skjeggete pupp, Cetti sin sangfugl, barn ugler og King Fisher. Reservatet er også hjemmet til den kinesiske vann hjort, hjort, oter og lokale spesialiteter - svelge halen butterfly og Norfolk Hawker Dragonfly.
Andre lokale aktiviteter inkluderer ridning i landsbyen, sykling, turgåing og fiske.
Områdene beste barnas attraksjon, BeWILDerwood ligger bare 10 miles unna. BeWILDerwood ligger i en treetop-verden, en perfekt dag ute for ikke bare barn, men også foreldre!
