Richard, Lobster Cottage, May 2024

Joe was responsive and helpful.  The place was spotless when we arrived, & we settled in immediately.  The beds were also extremely comfy & had some great nights sleep!  Location was also great - we spend an entire day at the Star Inn pub watching the sun go down over the fields. Really gorgeous - had a great stay.

Sabrina, Mole End, April 2024

Great cottage with lots to do in the surrounding areas.  Has all the amenities you'd need for a home away from home and lovely welcome gifts (especially the hotcross buns!).  Great communication from the hosts and was very homely and cosy.

Ellen, Mole End, January 2024

The house was an absolute joy to stay in.  We wanted peace and quiet for a New Years break and it certainly delivered.  The house was amazing - decorated to perfection, clean and uncluttered despite being an old house.  The rooms are big and the whole house very comfortable.  Very cosy with the fire going too.  We thoroughly recommend - and Joe & Sultan thought of everything to make it a perfect stay - even leaving bread and milk for us after a long journey.

Stuart, Lobster Cottage, October 2023
We had an excellent family break at Lobster Cottage.  A perfect base to explore Norfolk.  Everything we needed for a few days.  Joe was very responsive, and all instructions clear and helpful.  A nice welcome package of bread, milk and biscuits too!!  Plenty in the local area to explore.  We particularly enjoyed spotting seals at nearby Horsey Beach!  Thanks for a great stay.  Will definitely look to book again.

Stuart & Guillaume, Mole End, September 2023
Had a great holiday at Mole End, which was beautifully presented.  Very clean, modern facilities with a traditional touch.  Such a quiet and peaceful location.  Nice walks locally and right in the heart of the broads.  Perfect place to explore the local area.  Thanks for a great stay.

Martin, Mole End, August 2023
Very well equipped house, makes you feel at home straight away.  The house and garden were spotlessly clean and Joe answered any questions promptly and was very helpful before, during and after our stay.  Highly recommend staying there.

Lee And Cassie, Lobster Cottage, August 2023
We had a great stay at Lobster Cottage!  Everything we wanted was right on the doorstep.  We enjoyed all the local beaches especially Horsey with the seals.  Joe was an exceptional host, always replied quickly, very helpful and a detailed book with things to do and instructions left for us.  The welcome pack we received was much appreciated.  We would love to come back 😁.

Chloe, Mole End, August 2023
Very lovely cottage!  Very clean and had everything we needed.  Convenient location, close by to lots of different dog-friendly beaches if you don’t mind a short drive.  Would defo come back again!

Neil, Mole End, July 2023

What a fantastic holiday home!  We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mole End and would recommend it to anybody wanting a break in the Norfolk Broads.  Lots of attention to detail and little touches made this a really homely stay.  Spotlessly clean and well maintained with everything you need for a comfortable stay.

Laurie, Lobster Cottage, May 2023

Went for a long weekend with a few friends and wanted a quiet, peaceful rest with some great days out.  Joe's place was absolutely perfect - the most beautiful cottage.  There was some great games and books, something for everyone.  The kitchen was great - literally the best oven I've ever seen!  Lots of good utensils, glasses and crockery and loved the stuff provided for pets.  Beds were amazingly comfy and we all slept really well.  All in all, one of the best provided for places I've ever stayed and I won't hesitate to stay there again in the future.

Sara, Mole End, May 2023

Mole End is a lovely cottage with everything you could possibly need for a comfortable break.  The cottage was spotlessly clean and it had a great kitchen!  I was impressed by the responsiveness of the owner Joe and his flexibility to accommodate our big family.  It is good value for money and very well situated for the broads and a coastal drive.  We had a great time and couldn't praise this accommodation more!

Sally, Lobster Cottage, May 2023

Lobster Cottage really exceeded our expectations!  The cottage is really comfortable, the hosts have thought of everything from games in the lounge, comfy beds, a really well stocked kitchen plus bread, milk and biscuits left on arrival, a lovely touch!  We didn't know the area well so enjoyed exploring.  We liked Sea Palling Beach, we had fun at BeWILDerwood and enjoyed lunch at Dunes Cafe in nearby Waxham.  Unfortunately the pub in the village was closed during our stay as that would have been handy to walk to for a drink or meal.  If we come back to the area we'll be sure to book one of Joe's cottages again as they are great value and a fab base for exploring this lovely area.

Hayley, Mole End, February 2023

The cottage was beautiful and spacious.  Very peaceful.  Very friendly shop keeper less than a minute walk from the cottage.  The beds were unbelievably comfy, and I found I could lay in far longer than usual.  Joe was brilliant and very helpful.  We had a wonderful stay and will definitely stay here again soon!

​​Jack, Lobster Cottage, December 2022

Really nice place to stay - very comfortable, great facilities, kitchen has everything you need, and a good amount of space.  The house has a very cosy and inviting feel, particularly if you make use of the fire (you can get wood/kindling from various places nearby).  It’s also nicely situated - you can get to some nice beaches and can see seals if it’s the right time of year. Joe and Sultan are excellent hosts - communicative and helpful.  They also decorated the cottage for Christmas, which was a lovely touch.  We had a great time.  Many thanks!

Anna, Lobster Cottage, October 2022

The cottage was lovely and clean and perfect for our little family.  Joe and Sultan were very quick to respond to questions we had when we arrived.  The surrounding area is lovely with lots of nice beaches and things to do a short drive away.  Thank you for the lovely holiday!

William, Lobster Cottage, September 2022

Excellent communication from Joe helped make our stay stress free and enjoyable.  The Cottage was well supplied with books maps and information about the local area which was a great help

Jeremy, Lobster Cottage, July 2022

Just returned from a wonderful week at Lobster Cottage.  It had everything we needed for a super holiday.  It was very clean, comfortable and family friendly.  It was in a great location very close to the brilliant beach at Sea Palling, as well as other coastal locations, such as the seals at Horsey.  It was also well placed for visiting Norwich and other attractions.  We really enjoyed our stay and the children did not want to leave.  We definitely recommend Lobster Cottage!

Susan, Lobster Cottage, June 2022

Oh my goodness - I didn’t want to leave!  Everything you could need in a cozy coastal cottage.  View of the lighthouse and church from the back deck.  So covenient to visit the Norfolk beaches and Walsingham too.  Easy to find thanks to Joe - a very resposive host.

Damaris, Lobster Cottage, June 2022

Just returned from a wonderful stay here.  Exquisite cottage.  Very clean with comfy beds.  A lovely feel to the place.  Joe was a great communicator and allowed us to stay a little later on our last day so we checked out at 2pm rather than rushing around.  We visited in summer so we're out on the terrace or at the beach, but we'd like to return in the winter to make the most of the open fire and many games and books!

Highly recommended.

Tom, Lobster Cottage, May 2022

Lobster cottage is a great place to stay, clean, comfortable and with easy reach of some awesome beaches and superb places to eat out.  Will be returning again!  Joe is also great for any info and communication.  Would definitely recommend!

Laura, Lobster Cottage, April 2022

We had a lovely few days at lobster cottage.  Joe was quick to respond and helpful.  The cottage was clean and cosy and had everything needed for a short family break.

Sally, Lobster Cottage, March 2022

Lobster Cottage is beautiful, clean and full of character, it is well appointed and very easy to find your way around the utilities etc, thanks to the extensive welcome book and really helpful notes and signs dotted strategically around the place.  Joe and Sultan are quick to respond to any questions, clear and helpful.  Would definitely stay again.

Adam, Lobster Cottage, January 2022

Joe was a fantastic host and was extremely prompt at returning messages.  Great location and value for money!

Rimpi, Lobster Cottage, December 2021

Spent Christmas weekend at this lovely cottage and I couldn’t recommend it more!  It was perfect for our family of five and the home itself is so beautifully furnished - it was the perfect spot for a Christmas getaway.  Joe & Sultan were both very helpful from the time of booking all the way until the end.  The self check-in was super easy, there is one main bedroom and two smaller bedrooms and all rooms were laid out well with clever storage.  The bathroom was lovely and big although the shower was slightly tight, but there were no issues with hot water.  The kitchen was fully stocked up with all the dishware and utensils needed and the hob and ovens worked perfectly well.  Although we didn’t get the time to appreciate all the surroundings, there was a lovely pub down the road from the cottage and we were also right by the sea! Definitely recommend for all seasons of the year.  We had a fantastic time staying there - it had all the Christmas feels we were hoping for!

Reyes, Lobster Cottage, October 2021

Our stay in Lobster Cottage has been excellent.  The cottage is extremely well equipped and looked after and clean which made our stay memorable.  It is situated in the small village of Lessingham which is an excellent location to discover the Broads, Horsey Gap, Happisburgh and the surrounding countryside with lovely walks.  The cottage itself has everything you need.  Even the smallest details have been thought of to make the stay a comfortable one.  The beds are cozy and the location is lovely and quiet at night, so we slept really well.  A plus for us was the shower, lovely hot water and good pressure, towels for everyone, which makes a change from other places we have been to.  On one evening I had to work from home for a couple of hours and the Wi-Fi in the cottage was perfect: strong signal and it did not cut off.  (I was worried about that before arriving!)  Joe always has responded to my messages straight away and we haven't had any issues.  The welcoming pack was really comprehensive with lots and lots of local tips, again, the best I have come across!  The cottage has board games which kept my boys entertained and plenty of books. I cannot find fault with Lobster Cottage, honestly.  We are already looking forward to our next stay that we will book soon. Thank you Sultan & Joe for such a lovely break.

Holly, Lobster Cottage, September 2021

We had a fantastic stay in this gorgeous house!  The location is perfect being so close to the wonderful sandy beach of Sea Palling.  The house itself is full of charm, clean, quiet and had everything you needed for a getaway break.  It was lovely and warm and the beds were very cosy.  Communication with the host was always very rapid and nothing was too much bother for Joe.  We especially appreciated him moving things around so that we could arrive a day earlier.  Would definitely recommend this air bnb to anyone wanting a relaxing break.

Tim, Lobster Cottage, September 2021

Lovely stay at Lobster Cottage.  Great location for fantastic and safe beaches very locally too.  Saw the seals, which was a big hit.  Local pub was excellent.  Recommended!

Sandra, Lobster Cottage, September 2021

Wonderful location, great for walks and to visit the beach.  Garden is a lovely spot to enjoy the scenery and to eat in.  The table and chairs and BBQ were great to use and we all enjoyed sitting out there.  Beds were very comfortable.  Kitchen was well equipped with plenty of crockery and glasses.  Joe was very quick to respond and was always very helpful.

Andrew, Lobster Cottage, August 2021

Lobster Cottage is a great property for a visit to Norfolk.  It is in a great location, a short walk from the beach and ideal for visiting attractions in the area.  The house is ideal for a family holiday and was clean and well maintained and Joe was a great host with good communication, definitely recommended!

Darren, Lobster Cottage, August 2021

​​Wonderful cottage, very well equipped kitchen, lovely views of the lighthouse and church from the decking area.  Superb beaches very close by (and often deserted!)  Smallsticks Cafe is great - wonderful crab sandwiches & takeaway fish & chips.  The Star Inn has good pub food & a lovely garden.  Thanks to Joe & Sultan for a super stay!

Jenny, Lobster Cottage, July 2021

Lovely holiday.  Cottage was in a great location, so many lovely beaches.  Cottage was really well equipped with things like washing up liquid, tin foil, kitchen roll, etc. which made staying so easy.  Lovely touches with milk and biscuits left for us.

Lenka, Lobster Cottage, June 2021

The cottage was perfect for all of our needs and the beds were super comfy!  It really did feel like a home from home, which was just what we needed.  All of the fine details were thought about and during these times, the cleanliness was on point.  Location wise it was perfect, close to beaches and nearby pubs.  Stripes taxis (Kev) were also super helpful!  Would highly recommend!

Matthew, Lobster Cottage, June 2021

​Lobster Cottage is a great place to stay. It is really close to the beach and all amenities.  Our kids loved it and didn't want to come home.  All together a very relaxing holiday in a great location.

James, Lobster Cottage, November 2020
This gorgeous cottage is perfect for family holidays to the Broads and surrounds.  [The] fantastically responsive and friendly host who made us feel very welcome (even with contactless check in!) and provided lots of great tips to help us enjoy the local area.  We stayed at the cottage for two weeks and found so much to do (although it’s also cosy enough for you to enjoy relaxing at home if the weather lets you down).  The local beaches and villages are wonderful, although you will need a car as the village of Lessingham itself has very few amenities (aside from the Star Inn which offers delicious pub fayre).

Lucy, Lobster Cottage, September 2020

This was my second time staying at Lobster Cottage.  We had a great stay - the cottage is very comfortable and homely.  It is perfect for a week away and very close to a lot of local attractions.

We had a lovely stay at Lobster Cottage. We were welcomed with some very thoughtful welcome treats and the cottage was very clean and stylishly furnished.  The beds were comfortable and there are new carpets throughout upstairs.  The kitchen is well equipped for cooking which we did a lot of as we found that local restaurants needed pre booking due to Covid and we're not very organised!  We had great weather in August so were able to visit the many spacious and long sandy beaches.  There are no shops within easy walking distance of the cottage (that we found anyway) but there is a local pub a few minutes walk away and a large supermarket and shops a few miles away which you would need a car for.  The pretty Norfolk Broad villages and Norwich are all within an easy car ride.  Thoroughly recommend Lobster Cottage.

What a gem!  A quiet place to stay with everything you need close by.  Sandy beach Cart Gap less than 5 mins drive away for a morning stroll and much less crowded than many.  Local friendly pub 5 mins walk away which offers lovely sunsets over the hay fields.  Also a farm shop and butcher close by so no need to go into town if you don’t want to.  There is plenty locally to do if you just want to take it slow and chill or there are many sights such as seal watching or the famous Horsey Wind Pump if you want to venture further.  So perfect location where you can choose to sightsee or relax or a bit of both!  The property is spot on with old character and charm but all the mod cons to make self catering easy.  Everything you need is provided including a lovely welcome pack and all those things you meant to pack but forgot!  A real home from home with games and books for family fun.  There is also a lovely decking area where you can sit and watch the beautiful sunsets with a cold beer.  We had a really lovely stay and would thoroughly recommend this property because of its perfect location and because it’s so well equipped and comfortable.

Great little cottage in a really handy location.  The place was clean and welcoming, with some nice additional touches.  The host is super-communicative and everything is in fine order.  Lessingham is near to so many great attractions - we did a beach a day for a week, all within 30 mins.  There are some fabulous walks really close, and the local Vicarage garden is amazing (look it up, huge and exotic).  And there are plenty of good places to eat.
