Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Very friendly and helpful owners, a good welcome. Comfortable beds, the steepness of the stairs was unexpected and not ideal for the elderly person we had with us. We would be very happy to holiday in Forge Cottage again but not with and aged infirm relative. Although Stiffkey has limited facilities, small shop and a pub, accessibility to Wells and Blakeney is excellent. June 2012.
  2. Lovely, peaceful, excellent pub food nearby; further to ’sea’ than advertised - about quarter of a mile to saltmarsh - lovely for bird watching. March 2012.
  3. Beautiful cosy cottage in a lovely village. Idyllic! Sept 2011.
  4. Lovely cottage - compact but with everything you need and in a great location within walking distance of the marshes and sea. Quiet despite being quite close to the road. July 2011.
  5. Lovely cottage in a gorgeous village. The accommodation was perfectly adequate and spotless. The owners were really friendly and helpful and we really enjoyed discovering a new village. The village shop is amazing and has gorgeous fresh pastries and coffee in the mornings including sundays. May 2011.
  6. We were actually given Blacksmiths Cottage, which is next door. It was of a good standard and is perfectly located if you wish to explored the Norfolk coast. The door frames are a little on the low side, so becareful not to bump your head. The local pub (the Red Lion) serves good food at a reasonable price. The owners of the cottage are very nice people, who are always willing to help if you have any queries. March 2011.
  7. Comfortable and nice location. Feb 2011.
  8. The location and lovely light rooms - views from windows. Feb 2011.
  9. Cosy and homely cottage. Oct 2010.
  10. Nice cosy cottage. Set back from the road. Lovely garden. Not enough worktop space in kitchen but overall very nice. Sept 2010.
  11. A very cosy and comfortable house with a well-equipped kitchen. We particularly enjoyed the garden, which was full of adventures for the children, and the cows living on the farm in the neighbourhood. April 2010.
  12. Comfortable and clean. Not too ’twee’, and felt ’lived-in’. Felt immediately at home. March 2010.
  13. It may look as though I haven’t thought about my answers and just ticked excellent for everything, but everything was excellent - even the weather for April! March 2009.
  14. Lovely cottage with a most amazing garden which the children in particular loved! July 2007.
  15. Lovely cottage close to some wonderful beaches! June 2007.
