“Charming property, very comfortable and clean.”
Reviewed 26 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We enjoyed our five days at The Folly. Very convenient for Norwich and lots of local shops and places to eat. The property was well maintained and surprisingly quiet for such a central position.

“Superb, relaxing holiday let”
Reviewed 12 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the folly. The property was cosy and inviting with a great little kitchen and a thoughtful welcome pack of bread, milk, butter, coffee, eggs, bread and biscuits. :-)
The bed was very comfortable and as the property is set back off the road we had no issues with noise. We had no difficulty in finding a free parking space on a nearby street.

The location is great and there are some good pubs, restaurants, takeaways and shops right on the doorstep. It was an easy ten minute walk into the centre of Norwich. We will definitely stay here again.

A really well developed idea, this apartment has everything you'll need. There's plenty of good shops locally, some great pubs (top tip The York Tavern), and for breakfast the Unthank Kitchen takes some beating. It's a pleasant 15/20 minute walk to the city centre, plus regular buses for when it's raining. We were very happy and will definitely do it again.
Do be aware of one tiny problem - if you're in the downstairs toilet for a while, the light goes off and you can't turn it back on, as it's on a sensor in the entrance!

“A GLIMPSE OF PARADISE IN NORWICH”
Reviewed 26 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Charlie & Emma Webster really have created the perfect holiday rental with 'The Folly'. It exceeded our expectations in all areas - from the exceptionally high quality of the furnishings, the beautiful decoration, the ideal location and the totally unexpected 'welcome basket' (which included a delicious bottle of wine!). The accommodation is set-back off the road behind their Estate Agent building, so there is loads of privacy for sitting out on the beautiful patio for breakfast. Downstairs is 'open-plan', with a very well equipped kitchen with oven and plenty of plates, cutlery, pans and utensils for cooking a full meal if you wish. There is a dishwasher and coffee-machine, both thoughtfully provided with washing tablets or capsules - make sure you use the right one for the correct machine otherwise your coffee may be a bit frothy and your clothes rather stained!! There is also a fridge, freezer, ironing board (+ iron) and a washing machine/tumble dryer combo (again with some soap-powder left for us to use). The sofa is particularly comfortable (I thoroughly tested it with a very pleasant few hours having an afternoon snooze!) and they have provided a selection of boardgames, puzzles and a good-sized TV (+ wi-fi). Upstairs is a fantastically comfortable double-bed and en-suite shower-room, with another TV/DVD combo with a small selection of DVDs.
Parking is 'off-street' in front of the accommodation and for those who wish to go into Norwich and avoid the parking-fees, a regular bus-service runs from just outside the door! If you decide to walk, the City Centre is only 15 minutes away. There are local shops, which include a supermarket and a couple of very pleasant pubs that serve evening meals.
The Folly is ideal for 2 people - although the stairs are quite steep and narrow so would be a challenge for a some people. There is also a sofa-bed downstairs.
We are fairly frequent visitors to Norwich to visit our son at University and usually stay in a hotel. However, to spend a few pounds more to have all the luxury and comfort that Charlie and Emma have so carefully and thoughtfully provided is an obvious choice - and our son even got to have a dinner cooked by his Mum! So go on, spoil yourself - you'll regret it if you don't!

An excellent, well appointed property in contemporary style. Clean, comfortable, with everything you need, including a generous welcome pack of fresh items. It was a really good find!
