“So Good. Perfect for Train Lovers”

Our break at Station Cottage was so good we didn't want to leave. Right on the platform - you can check the arrival and departure boards from the sitting room window. Regular trains to watch but not so many as to be intrusive. Railway enthusiasts dream cottage. Nicely furnished, clean, warm and snug with lots of railway books to read. The owners next door are friendly and helpful. Whilst there is parking right outside we used the trains to travel most of the time. Medium sized grocery shop very close and great walks around Damgate Woods. We can't wait to come back.

“Just perfect”

Had another fabulous week. The cottage was perfect again, and the personal touches were most appreciated. The cottage has a fully equipped kitchen and all the rooms are spacious and well furnished. Acle is a great place to explore the broads either by car or(as we did) using public transport and walking. Local shops, take aways and pubs all tested this visit and all were excellent. Can't recommend enough, already looking to book next year!

“Perfect cottage on the edge of the Norfolk Broads”
Reviewed 1 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

people found this review helpful

Beautifully converted cottage on a "real" railway station on the Norwich to Gt Yarmouth Wherry line. Owners live next door in the ex-Station Master's house. Very conveniently located for the Broads and the Norfolk coast. Very well furnished and spotlessly clean. Lovely welcome pack of goodies including a scrumptious sponge cake. Fresh flowers also. Pets welcome. Plenty of trains for the enthusiast! Modern TVS in lounge and bedrooms and a vital Wi-Fi link with good speed.
Minor downside was lack of a washing machine, but no problem for a week's stay.

Thank you very much for your lovely review- I am sorry you missed the washing machine I'm afraid I omitted to tell you on arrival that I am more than happy to wash and dry laundry for my guests - it didn't help that I was unable to greet you personally as taking son to Uni that day and completely forgot on my return- hope it didn't spoil your stay too much
