Upon arrival at Station Cottage we were greeted with a beautifully presented cottage, with fresh flowers and a very thoughtful and kind welcome selection including cake, biscuits tea, coffee, milk, butter, bread and even treats for the dog! The cottage is immaculate with fantastic details and Deborah has thought of everything to make this a home away from home. Being on the train station we loved to see the trains but they were not disturbing. Our son loved to wake up to watch out for the diesel train. Acle is a lovely village with the benefit of a number of shops (including a co-op) and is easy to walk to through the footpath from the station. We were ideally placed to explore Norfolk and enjoyed returning to the cottage to relax each day. We would all highly recommend this wonderful cottage and would definitely return next time we visit Norfolk.
Acle is a great location for visiting The Broads. Train to Norwich or Great Yarmouth on the doorstep! A trip to Wroxham, Horning or Fairhaven all near by. The welcome we received at this converted railway station was second to none. The quaintness of this place intriguing, and every need provided for. would love to visit again in the future.
Having lived our lives near a railway line, we didn't think staying here would be a problem. And it wasn't. The trains just made us feel part of the area and its history. The cottage was so inviting. Clean, spotless, and made one feel we were the first guests to arrive here. In tune with other guests, I'm reluctant to rave about the cottage too much, in case so many people wish to come here, we will not be able to book the weeks we want to! Only scratched the surface of Norfolk on this short visit. We are determined to return, and to this very wonderful location. I tell you all, this is a location you must not miss, and I have been to quite a few!
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.
