The water tank dripped all night and could be heard in the bedroom taps in kitchen and bathroom could do with new washers whe we arrived the bowl in the kitchen sink was full of water
Also work men staying in other cottages got up very early making quite a bit of noise waking us up.
We stayed for one week in mid September. The cottage is an end of terrace and was a little smaller than it appears in the photographs, but we managed ok.
Wroxham is a busy village with plenty of shops, cafe's and pubs so we were never short of things to do. The french doors look out onto a large grass area which is shared by the other cottages. Overall we had a pleasant weeks stay. On the negative side, the front door opens onto a covered porch and a raised pathway, there is no safety rail to stop anyone from accidentally falling about two feet to the gravel driveway. As it was September the sun was lower in the sky and never shone on the Grass area but it did at the front, it would have been nice to have sat on a bench by the front door to enjoy the sunshine. I wouldn't recommend for people with disabilities or families with young (toddler) children
After booking star cootage for a week in August for a surprise proposal to my girlfriend we have just returned home from a awesome week. The cootage it self is in a private estate with water surrounding the whole cootage. Even with a private car park with electric fob access. The cootage over looks wroxham broads right next to wroxham bridge and close to nolfork broads direct. We certainly enjoyed waking up to the beautiful scenery and geese and swans on the lawn just behind the cootage. We most nights sat in the evening in the garden for a drink or 2. We fed the geese and swans twice a day with bread with our little one who really enjoyed the experience.also a resident heron would be on the lawn most days. It was very tame as the residents fed him. The young boy fishing was catching small fish and feeding him. A great place to fish of your into that. I didnt do any fishing but wouldnt of minded having a go there after seeing everyone else doing it. The cootage is smaller than what we thought it would be. But is more than suitable for us. The living room is cozy and more and suitable for us. The kicthen is more than ideal. Has full utensils and cups plates etc. Cooker is fine..fridge freezer was a bit old. The frezzer is a bit rubbish didnt keep frozen stuff frozen. Yhe bedrooms are ideal and no problems I double comfy bed and plenty of storage space. The twin is the same as well. The bathroom consists of a toliet bath and in bath shower. This was very meesy when using the shower as water went every where even when using the curtain provided. The only thing we would say negative was that the area around wroxham was a bit run down. We eat from most places for dinner and didnt find up to standard we would prefer. I masive bonus is the shed 20 meters from the front door a quite pub with different ales and friendly service pool table darts.
