Saxlingham Nethergate, Norfolk, East Anglia, England
Green Farm Cottage, with its typical Norfolk construction and original beams, offers an exquisite hideaway for two in the idyllic setting of our ancient apple orchards and exceptional countryside.

Interaction with guests
Guests will be welcomed personally by Roger and Penny who will be waiting to welcome you around your expected arrival time. They will guide you to the cottage, hand over the keys and very happily answer any essential questions. A welcome tea tray will be awaiting your arrival with home bakes (lactose intolerance on request). Milk and eggs will be in your fridge and details of local restaurants, maps and other items of interest on the table. Leaflets and pamphlets of places to visit are for your perusal and we are always on hand to happily talk about our extensive knowledge of the area or help in any way. However, those wishing for complete seclusion, peace and quiet, Green Farm Cottage is the perfect place to stay.

The cottage was just as good as when we visited last year, although location-wise, it is awkward to get to the Broads area (at least three quarters of an hour drive). The welcome cake was lovely too. However, while the Wifi is good, the mobile...More
