“A perfect home from home”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014
person found this review helpful

We stayed at the Bees Knees for 6 nights in late July as we visited our friends who live in nearby Banham. Before our arrival, communication between us and the owners was excellent and it was lovely to be greeted by both Dalene and Alex upon arrival after our 4 and three quarter hour journey down from Manchester. The cottage is beautifully furnished throughout and our 2 year old had his cot ready in the second bedroom too. The welcome pack was a lovely touch and we instantly felt relaxed and at home.
There were some initial problems accessing the wifi but Dalene quickly rectified this within a few minutes. Alex and Dalene were extremely helpful during our stay and made us all feel very welcome. The cottage has so many facilities - too many to list here - but everything is modern with all mod cons, while still in keeping with the cottage and surroundings.
There are a number of attractions we visited during our stay, all of which we would recommend. Banham Zoo is a must, Great Yarmouth is a lovely place to visit, as is Wymondham (The Green Dragon pub is a gem) and the Bure Valley Railway.
The grounds of the cottage are beautiful, with lots of space for little ones to run around in, a picturesque pond and a great gazebo for drinks in the evening.
Overall, we would wholeheartedly recommend this cottage as a place to stay if you are visiting the area. Alex and Dalene are wonderful hosts and the cottage is perfect. We will definitely be returning. Thanks Alex and Dalene - we had a blast!!
