“Lovely Folly”
Reviewed 5 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

A perfect place for a couple. We stayed here almost a week and enjoyed the well maintained, well equiped and very clean home from home. The location is very good too, it's only a short walk to the city center. Highly recommended!

“So pleased we choose the folly over a local hotel.”
Reviewed 12 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Hi, we are Devon guest house owners who once lived in well next the sea north Norfolk.
So it was great to come back to the area.
Our main reason however was for a minor medical operation at the Norwich&Norfolk hospital.
We therefore want a place to stay locally near to the hospital as well as be able to recover from the operation.
We search the Internet for a suitable place and wanted a self catering place rather than a hotel that would suit us.
We have learned being the business so to speak that just looking at websites only really tells the potential renter half of the story.
After all when did you see a bad website? Never, they all look good they are supposed to look attractive.
So to be sure that we had made the right choice of the folly,we read all the reviews and then contact the owner because one can learn a lot about a place by speaking or emailing the owner.
The folly was, as we had expected ,everything that we wanted and more.
The fixture and fitting are quality ,the bed for example being expensive and quality and you can take that from a guest house owner..
There is very little else to say,because all the previous reviews have said it all.
One final point and that is the cost of the rental ,because for approx the same price as we Paid for the folly,we would have had just a hotel room ensuite,whereas the folly gave us a cottage with an expensive kitchen,two large screen tv,s a lounge as do much more.
So well done Charlie&emma for giving us a top quality cottage at an inexpensive price.

Thanks so much for your lovely comments and its great to hear what guests now look into when booking a property. We pride ourselves on offering a clean/comfortable property at a reasonable price, compared to local hotels and as you say the property offers so much more than just a hotel room. We are delighted your operation was successful and will be sure to make a visit to your guest house if we make our way down to Devon in the future! All the best, Charlie & Emma

“Convenient Location and lovely accomodation”
Reviewed 8 November 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We enjoyed staying here and the courtyard was lovely when we were able to entertain our family prior to our son's wedding.As New Zealanders some of the appliances were a wee bit different- I don't think I will ever master a British washing machine!
The location is excellent- close to restaurants, takeaways and a mini supermarket.A 20- 30 minute walk into the centre of Norwich

“Charming property, very comfortable and clean.”
Reviewed 26 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We enjoyed our five days at The Folly. Very convenient for Norwich and lots of local shops and places to eat. The property was well maintained and surprisingly quiet for such a central position.

“Superb, relaxing holiday let”
Reviewed 11 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the folly. The property was cosy and inviting with a great little kitchen and a thoughtful welcome pack of bread, milk, butter, coffee, eggs, bread and biscuits. :-)
The bed was very comfortable and as the property is set back off the road we had no issues with noise. We had no difficulty in finding a free parking space on a nearby street.

The location is great and there are some good pubs, restaurants, takeaways and shops right on the doorstep. It was an easy ten minute walk into the centre of Norwich. We will definitely stay here again.
