We were 3 couples and really enjoyed the weekend, peaceful area, surrounded with fields. The hot tub was really relaxing at night. The only downside was the shower which had very low pressure and the Wifi was very slow too.

Management response:

Thankyou for the review, We are in a rural area of Norfolk so when you compare our superfast Broadband to that which you get in London - it will be slow. But it really isn't! As the saying goes here - " It' s Normal For Norfolk". A bit the same really as when you asked me where Starbucks is...

Myself and 16 others stayed here for a weekend at the end of April for a hen do. It was remarkable. Great location and the houses (Both the Old Vicarage and Tinkers Retreat) were phenomenal. It was immaculately clean and had everything we needed apart from food!! All saucepans, cutlery, glasses, tea and coffee, even bubble bath and towels were...

Management response:

Thanks Kym for the lovely review and I am glad that you all enjoyed the use of the 2 properties together. You are all more than welcome to come back any time and I hope the wedding day all runs smoothly and you all have a lovely day. Emma.

We had a very peaceful and relaxing week at Tinker's Retreat, exactly what we were hoping for. The house is very light with lovely comfy sofas, a great hot tub and nice large garden which our two dogs enjoyed exploring. Easy access to both beaches and the north broads.

Management response:

Glad you enjoyed your stay and the dogs enjoyed their holiday too. You are welcome back anytime. Emma

About the neighbourhood
The beautiful sandy beaches are less than 5 miles away and the Norfolk Broads less than 3. Ideally located for exploring. Beautiful walks in the village with a village pub that welcomes dogs. There is also a railway station where you can catch the local train into Norwich. Fancy splashing about on the water? Then hire a boat for the day on the Broads - lots of boatyards within a couple of miles.
Getting around
There is a railway station in the village but it is a rural location so if you want to explore the beautiful surrounding countryside and beaches it is recommended you have a car or bike.
Car recommended
How to get there
Airport: Norwich: 12.0 km
Railway: Worstead: 1.0 km
1. Head for the village church in the middle of the village and find Westwick Road which runs alongside the church.
2. Travel a small distance along Westwick Road, heading towards Westwick, and take the first turning on your right hand side which is country road (signposted as being unsuitable for HGVs), known as Vicarage Road.
3. Take care along this lane as it is narrow and windy. Drive past The Vicarage on your left hand side and then start to slow down. You will come to a junction and The Old Vicarage lies on the left hand sharp bend of this junction on your left hand side. Immediately to the side of the property you will see a wooden sign for a public bridleway.
4.. There is a pair of wooden gates at the entrance.
