Customer Testimonials

  • "Everything was just as good as last year new TV and bathroom suite great additions, some cooking utensils need upgrading."

    Little disappointed with the 30% price hike for the same week in 2022 so regrettably won’t be returning

    Graeme - September 2021

  • "A nice cottage tucked away in quiet village."

    Central location for access to beach, countryside and the broads. Owners were very helpful when we encountered a couple of problems which were quickly dealt with and generously returned some money for our inconvenience. Not many would have gone that far and it was greatly appreciated.

    Christopher - September 2021

  • "We read the information given and past reviews, which attracted us to Kingsley Cottage, so were aware of all its plus points, and did not disappoint."

    Spacious, comfortable and well equipped, with lovely garden, it was great. Both owner and cleaning lady were very helpful and pleasant. Can recommend without hesitation.

  • "Lovely cottage."

    Clean and comfortable. Some lovely nearby beaches and we loved seeing the seals. Great base for the Broads and North Norfolk.

    Rachel - July 2021

  • "The cottage itself was beautiful and in an idyllic location and we would definitely stay again purely for the location and the garden was lovely and secure for the dogs."

    However we had the clean it thoroughly upon arrival. The kitchen was dirty, particularly the floor. The fridge needed cleaning, there were cobwebs all over and the skirting boards were filthy. The hoover left onsite needs the bag changing, this could be partly the issue. That said, the cottage was extremely well equipped and the beds were comfortable.

    We also had issues with the neighbours having building work done which would start at 9am daily disturbing the peace somewhat. (This is no reflection on the property, simply feedback incase any further guests complain). Overall we had a really lovely stay, it was a shame about the cleanliness, we definitely left it cleaner than when we arrived.

  • "Great week in Hickling staying in Kingsley Cottage."

    Everything you would need and more. Although facing main road through the village, it was very quiet with little traffic at all times of the day. Short 3 minute walk to a excellent pub. Plenty of walks for the dogs up the road to Hickling Broad. Ideal base with both beach and broads within a few minutes drive. Bonus was the amount of farm and garden produce available locally. Would definitely recommend to all.

    Peter - June 2021

  • "Everything was as described and more."

    Comfortable for humans and safe for the dogs. Nice little village, lovely dog friendly pub.

    Christine - June 2021

  • "Pleasant stay enjoyed the area with some lovely walks"

    Lynne - May 2021

  • "It would have assisted us to know the bathroom/toilet was downstairs and no upstairs facilities."

    Excellent location. Very clean. Softer pillows would have been appreciated.

    David - May 2021

  • "Attractively furnished cottage with everything that we needed."

    Hickling village was pretty and peaceful with access to Hickling broad and boat hire just over a mile away. Plenty of places of interest to visit nearby. We would definitely stay for a relaxing countryside break again.

    Diane - May 2021

  • "A bathroom or toilet upstairs would of been beneficial."

    Dean - May 2021

  • "A lovely, cosy, well equipped cottage, I had just about the worst weather imaginable, exceedingly wet & windy, but being in the cottage was a delight."

    Just one comment (not a criticism) though, in the info pack all we are asked to do is to put our waste in the appropriate bins outside - no problem there. Please bear in mind that people from outside the area have different colour coded bins, for example I was looking for the glass recycling box, is there one? what bin do I put it in?. I have four different collections at home, food, plastics & paper, glass and general waste so I feel that a bit more info may help us do right by the owners & the environment.

    Tina - September 2020

  • "Lovely cottage, ideal for beaches and the Broads."

  • "Liked it so much we have booked another week in November."

    Lee - August 2020

  • "We really had an amazing time this summer in this cosy cottage, which was easy to call home."

    Could do with a new washing machine now though, its a bit cronky, but minor point and didn't detract from an enjoyable stay. we would definitely come back here.

    Mr R - October 2018

  • Comfortable dog friendly cottage.

    Lovely part of the country. Clean overall but lounge carpet probably needs shampooing,

    Mrs W - September 2018

  • The cottage and location was amazing and would recommend to others and would love to return some day.

    However, upon arrival felt the cleaning was a tad below par and slightly rushed, ie dog poo in garden, stairs not swept.

    Mr & Mrs K - August 2018

  • One word sums up Kingsley Cottage, that is Outstanding, from the accommodation to the location, and location is everything as far as we are concerned, 5mins drive to the nearest beach, 10-15mins for all the superb amenities that Norfolk had to offer us
