Rowena Cottage is everything you read and expect, then more. Richard and Isabel have thought of everything. The cottage is beautifully maintained, very clean, and furnished perfectly. If you are looking for a cosy "get away" very close to the Norfolk coastline, then Rowena Cottage fits the bill.
We had great weather, a real bonus. We walked in the Bacton area; took a trip on the Broads - (hiring a boat) - recommended; visited Mundesley; chilled. There are a good selection of pubs and restaurants, (worth booking though), The Hill House at Happisburgh was a find; but sadly Bure River Cottage was full... (Locally the Poacher's Pocket serves good food).
What was lovely about Rowena Cottage is the thought that Richard and Isabel have put into making it feel like a home. They are on hand if you want/need them, yet respectful of your space. We commuincated by email: nothing was too much trouble; we felt that if needed they would be able to assist - we didn't need any, as everything is there. Don't worry about the neighbouring cottage, there is very little intrusion - we did not experience any; but if you were hiring both, I am confident that you would all have a great time...
We stayed during Feb half term for 2 nights. The cottage has everything you will need - lovely touches through out. Plus before our stay, Richard emailed us with some recommendations of pubs and cafes, every place we visited was lovely. Amazing shower & very comfy bed. As a dog owner, the secure backgarden was a big bonus. It was so nice sitting out in the morning, listening to the waves. Very close to the beach for long walks.
Rowena Cottage is brilliant. Scrupulously clean, well equipped, fantastically comfortable. Ideal location to visit everywhere. The beach was a lovely surprise. Beautiful sand and great to walk along.
We will be back.
What a cute cottage by the sea. It was spotless and the pictures don’t do it justice. Brilliant for couples with a dog with an enclosed garden. Conveniently situated for Mundsley and Cromer. Not much in Bacton, but we wanted peace and quiet and an amazing beach to walk the dog. We would definitely return as it was such good value for two nights.
