“A welcoming cottage for an older family”
Reviewed 2 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

A beautifully appointed and welcoming cottage which was ideal for us as a family with two grown-up daughters and my elderly mother. All the rooms are thoughtfully decorated and well-equipped. The beds were very comfortable. I chose this cottage particularly because of the stair lift to the first floor, which was a real boon. Sue was very helpful in assisting us with a wheelchair and mobility scooter rental for the week from a local shop in King's Lynn which meant we could all enjoy days out. Sandringham in particular was great. We weren't very lucky with the weather and not much to do locally in the rain but the cottage was a good place to spend time together so not a problem.

“Wow, you'll find it hard to beat this.”
Reviewed 12 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

A charming cottage in a lovely location. The owners could not have done more to make this a memorable stay. The cottage has everything you could need and more. A stairlift to the first floor which has a single bedroom, twin bedroom and bathroom with walk-in shower makes it suitable for some people who have disabilities or mobility problems. The double bedroom situated in the loft with its own on suite washroom completes the sleeping quarters. On the ground floor there is a lounge, kitchen, dining area and utility room. The cottage is equipped with everything you could wish for to make your stay comfortable and easy. All mod cons but in a design that suits the quaintness of the cottage. Good parking, and a quiet walled garden. Several local eating places and village shop that caters for most needs.

“A Home from Home”
Reviewed 2 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We have just returned to Ireland & thank Sue & Freya for providing a 'home from home' for us at Latch Cottage. From the welcoming delicious lemon cake, the biscuits with the tea making facilities in every bedroom, the comfortable furniture to the beautiful bed linen & towels etc. every thing was of the highest standard. There were plenty of extra plates, cutlery & glasses so we could entertain our in-laws who lived nearby (& a very well stocked shop a few yards away where we could stock up on supplies!) The stairlift was so useful for Colin with his bad knees!
There were plenty of games & DVD's for if the weather had been bad, but luckily we made more use of the BBQ ( for which even the charcoal was provided)
We were able to get out & about every day, to the coast, to Sandringham, to Kings Lynn & to the amazing Castle Acre Priory, but we're always happy to come home to Latch Cottage!
Colin & Fran.
