Bungalow fantastic as usual decided to do a few different days out this year.  Went to How Hill@ Ludham-Lovely walks, (dogs on lead) & refreshments, Pettits animal adventure park was fantastic for our 2 year old, great day out. Bure Valley railway 45 mins on little train to Wroxham. Dog & toddler enjoyed very much. Lovely walks on the cliff in the evening, but very sad to see the coastline change so much in the few years we have been coming here!! Great ball throwing for dexter on Walcott beach.  Locals very friendly.  Gorgeous fish & chips from the Kingfisher. Samuel enjoyed the trikes and bikes in the shed.

Our 4th visit to Kestrel it really is feeling like a second home. We wish!!!!  We keep returning as it has all we need for a relaxing holiday weather unbelievable for the time of year. Went  to the  lighthouse Inn several times lovely pub friendly staff & great atmosphere, great full English breakfast & you can take doggies in the bar area. Once again thank you kestrel team. We love it here!
P.s. Bedroom 2 looks better without bunk beds. Good idea to put a double bed instead.

Bexleyheath, Kent.

Another fantastic week spent at Kestrel (our 2nd home) weather has been very kind to us, warm and sunny for most of the walks on the beach at Walcott. The best fish and chips is from King fishers. We watched the seals at Horsey and even paddled the surf. Visited Thrigby hall again. I’m animal mad!! Visted lots of pleaces still  found plenty of time to relax back at kestrel,read 2 books and watched soppy movies. Kestrel lovely and clean with that special homely feel. Thanks kestrel team we will definitely be back again next year.

Here again our 3rd visit, Mon just visited Pigney wood, lovely just past Bacton and worth a visit. Lunch at Horning Staithe & Willow tearooms, excellent food and made our dogs very welcome even got a sausage. Friday sunny & bright in all 100% great week.

Thoroughly enjoyed our week in North Norfolk. Weather good most of the time. Bungalow very clean and tidy. The library particularly welcome on one very wet day. Recommend the Kingfisher fish and chip bar, The Royal Hotel, carvery and an evening meal at the so friendly “Poachers pocket”. The cliff walk to Happisburgh is very bracing, most impressed by the large stock of useful items and other supplies provided in the kitchen. Home from Home.


Steve Julie & Rocky the dog
Maidestone, kent.

Booked for 2 weeks and so far on 2 days of rain. The bungalow is comfy, clean and homely. Rocky loves the coastal path walk and we were so surprised at how North Norfolk is so dog friendly. Fairhaven in  South Walsham is a great place to  take the dog lovely gardens. The bridge Inn pub in Acle is not only dog friendly but the food  is ample and good value. We had a takeaway chinese from new sag at Mundesley very tasty indeed. Very impressed with the location of bungalow would stay again. Thankyou for such a nice holiday.

Our first time here and hopefully won’t be our last. Clean cosy bungalow, had enjoyable trips to Cromer, recommend the Jetty café everything fresh. Also Peanuts Parlour Cromer, does dog sitting service so free to do some shopping. Also lovely visits to Wroxham Boat trips lovely beach at Cromer . Could go on and on and very dog friendly area which was a bonus, can also recommend coffee morning with the locals on the village on the green. Many thanks Kestrel team.

Once again a lovely holidy bungalow, lovely as before weather up and down but for most of the time, we had sun. We had some great meals out and enjoyed all the broads had to offer.

Another relaxing 6th visit, The east Rushton Vicarage gardens were again excellent, visited Holkem gap and the Muckleburgh Military collection. The Hillhouse Inn in happisburgh still serves excellent ale. The Poachers pocket still serves excellent food very good portions. Horning worth a visit on the broads, try the Staithe & Willow restaurant, excellent value dogs welcome. Bungalow clean, tidy and well appointed. Weather fabulous.

These are previous Comments we have had over the years


Bungalow excellent, can't fault it- Reg Hartley


Property great, spotlessly clean, lots of homely touches, it is like home from home. Excellent weather for this time of year, made this a super break.- Roger & Julie Maxted & Molly (the greyhound)


We had a really good holiday; the bungalow was the most comfortable holiday property we have ever used, the location was very quiet and peaceful, the weather was fortunate - no rain all week - and the tide never prevented a walk back from Happisburgh along the beach!

Although we didn't take the dog into the Lighthouse, we did ask, and they are allowed in the bar area.



Great bungalow, enjoyed conservatory, good weather for walking coastal footpaths. Visited coastal villages, Cromer, Blickling hall & grounds, Wroxham & Broads, some heavy April showers - Keith & Linda Page

Weather was great little rain ideally situated for trips to the broads etc. The bungalow is situated perfectly to enjoy the peace and quiet. There was plenty of opportunities for long walks on the beach and clifftops great views from the garden.
Could not fault the bungalow as it had great facilities and was very clean, will definitely come back later in the year for a further stay.
Jeff & Dee

We have had a great week, with better weather than some summer holidays! We would recommend the "Poppy Line" steam train from Sherringham. The bungalow is beautiful & so relaxing, we would love to come back again.

April 09

We had a fantastic week at the bungalow, it was the cleanest and most comfortable place we've ever rented and we've done a lot! I revisited my childhood on the beach and it was no more crowded than it used to be! The children loved it & Walcott is safe enough for them to go on the beach on their own,which made them feel very grown up. We walked for miles each evening and sometimes early morning. Thank you Jo, Brian, Jess & Ash.

Lovely clean accomodation, we wanted for nothing. Walked dogs all over we enjoyed eating at "The Ship" in Bacton and "Lighthouse Inn". New cafe opened in Bacton, really clean, great breakfast there all home cooking. Had a great time.

We've had a great week! Perfect for Rosie with lots of lovely walks and the beach on the door step. The boys loved the beach too went almost every day, couldn't get the boys or Rosie out of the sea! Bungalow perfect a real home from home and so clean and tidy and have thought of everything, hope to be back again.
Clare Mcmullen

A great week in a lovely bungalow, which is spotless and well thought out.
Things to do, day boat hire Moonfleet at Stalham, Horsey windmill & beach to see the seals and pups, Walcott beach 5 mins walk away, and Sea Palling beach, will recommend Kestrel.
