Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. The property was very modern, and the PC/Internet allowed us to check local attractions. However, your directions do need updating. Firstly you told us to have a cheque ready for the heating. This only applies in winter. Secondly, you sent us up the A10 round King Lynn. This is a poor road, and if coming from the south, the A11 /A14/ A1065 route to Fakenham is much better and shorter too. Finally, your statement that "there appears to be no village South Creake" is wrong. This village (50 houses) is 2 miles past the sign, whereas Sunnyview farm is 1 mile, south of the village. The Orchard Inn there is good. The property is next to the road so is a bit noisy. R.Rolfe. Sept 2012.
  2. We did not know that there was a camping ground for caravans adjacent to the property but it did not detract from the quiet and lovely location and in no way was a problem if anything, the view across the camping ground was lovely with rabbits running around in the early morning. May 2012.
  3. Perfect base for exploring all that Norfolk has to offer. Would definitely visit again. Aug 2011.
  4. We lave a large dog and found the garden all fenced in and a large field 2 mins walk away very good, an ideal place for dog walking. Fishing lake 5 mins drive away. July 2011.
  5. Our 3rd visit to this cottage in 3 years, we love the location, the cottage, the welcome, the facilities, we cant help coming back for more. May 2011.
  6. Loved this accommodation because it was in a great location and also ideal for all the top bird watching spots in North Norfolk. Nov 2010.
  7. High standard of furnishings and equipment. Oct 2010.
  8. We liked the layout of the property and the garden. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms were clean and well presented with plenty of spare towels. The small supply of bread, milk etc. was a nice touch. We will return in the future. June 2010.
  9. We visited the same property last year so knew what to expect. Its in a quiet location, spacious, excellent facilities inside, clean, plenty of room for dogs to roam securely and field to walk them in nearby, the owners very helpful and friendly but not intrusive despite living next door. May 2010.
  10. Layout was excellent and patio was totally enclosed for our dogs. it was private yet assistance was there if you needed it. Use of internet was added bonus. April 2010.
  11. Very clean and with loads of equipment. Welcome pack of bread, milk, loo rolls etc. We have stayed in loads of cottages over the years and this was the best so far! Oct 2009.
  12. Clean, tidy decor, good, characterful and cosy. Sept 2009.
  13. Loved the cottage, photos did not do it justice. Aug 2009.
  14. It is a lovely old house that is very welcoming. The owner was also very nice and helpful. Aug 2009.
  15. The property was very well equipped with furniture, electronic goods and kitchen equipment of good quality. The site of the cottage was good for families - the nearby campsite had access to open field for play + climbing frame. Aug 2009.
  16. The property is just a few miles from some of the best beaches in the UK. All of these beaches are "dog friendly". June 2009.
  17. Excellent accommodation, ideally placed for exploring the North Norfolk coast. The property has substantial front and rear gardens which are ideal for children and dogs. Spacious rooms, friendly owners who are next door but not at all invasive, but there if needed. We will no doubt visit again. May 2009.
  18. Loved it! Great area and brilliant garden. We want to return. May 2009.
  19. The brochure photograph does not do the property justice, it is much nicer in real life. We found this was an ideal property for our dogs as everything was secure and indestructable! The owners were also sympathetic to dog ownership. Our daughter was also pleased to be able to use the climbing frame and slide on the site which was an added bonus. March 2008.
  20. My 3rd visit to this property, and my ?th booking with your company. Info always accurate and helpful; a no-hassle holiday. Well done, again. Alison and David at Sunnydene are excellent hosts; available, helpful, friendly - as appropriate and required. June 2008.
