“Perfect for a relaxing break”
Reviewed 8 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

Very good indeed, the accommodation is very well maintained and the owners are friendly and helpful. Fantastic location, only 5 mins from Norwich and within easy distance of the coast. Pool and hot tub - amazing!

“Perfect amenities in a fabulous location.”
Reviewed 8 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Dove Cottage is in the village of Costessey, Norfolk. The cottage had everything we needed for a comfortable stay, complete with our dog. The added bonus was a superbly managed swimming pool, complete with hot tub and provided a great ending to busy days! Hosts Chrissy and Keith made us feel very welcome, and their friendly dogs just completed the homely and relaxed vibe. Set in beautiful surroundings the cottage was relaxing and spacious, with our own secure garden and plenty of parking space. We will definitely be back!

“The perfect place to relax and unwind”

Dove cottage was just as we had hoped. A perfect holiday cottage to relax and unwind. It offers something for everyone; a great base to go out from, a games room, watching wildlife on your doorstep (barn owl, deer, sparrow hawk) plus an abundance of british birds visiting the bird feeder every day, the icing on the cake was the swimming pool and hot tub!!
Chrissy and Keith made us feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble.
We would highly recommend this holiday cottage and we will be returning next year.

“We did not want to leave.”

A last minute stay turned out the be just what we needed. Dove cottage and all facilities were pristine. The pool and hot tub are very clean, we had trouble getting the boys out. When they were not in the pool they were in the well equipped games room or playing football and badminton on the lawn whilst I relaxed on the sun loungers provided. Sky TV and sports channels were a winner too. The kitchen has all the utensils that you would ever need and we were spoilt with freshly made scones on arrival.
I can not recommend this place enough and the owners are lovely and on hand for anything needed. I will definitely be booking this place again as we did not want to leave.
Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Thank you it is great to know guest's enjoyed their experience in either cottage to want to return although we live here as well we are not intrusive and give guest space to enjoy the facilities here, the new games room with pool table, Ping-Pong, football table, darts has made the experience even better than before. Guest's feel more at ease knowing we are here if needed.

“Super Family Holiday”
Reviewed 20 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Had a fabulous weeks holiday in Dove Cottage. The owners were extremely welcoming right from the lovely scones and home made jam left for us through to advice on beaches and places to visits.
Children (age 8 and 5) loved the Pool and had dips at least everyday and the games room was also a great idea... Although we had pretty good weather we still found time to play table football and Pool and the garden is also very nice for a family game of cricket!
The location is also excellent.. being close to Norwich puts it in a very central position to Norfolk allowing good access to both North and East coasts... recommend Winterton-on-Sea as a nice clean and sandy beach.
The addition of Sky Sports also helped my son keep in touch with the latest T20 Cricket action !
Recommend Dove Cottage to anyone planning a peaceful break but with plenty to keep you occupied .. would definitely return !

Lots of guest have found this the perfect base to discover the delights of Norfolk from Norwich city - cathedral, castle, museum, shopping, The Broads - a picnic boat is a great way to explore the water ways from a few hours to a whole day, Norfolk coast - a range of different coastal villages from Yarmouth to Cromer or beyond great day out for young and old, I believe this is why lots of guest's return every year to see the places they missed the last time and of course our heated pooll, hot-tub and large games room fun for all the family (get the kids away from their gadgets)
