We are not even at the end of our stay yet, but have had the best time so far! We are staying in Lighthouse Cottage but had the privileged of seeing the others and all are to a very high standard. Great location to explore the Norfolk broads and coast, and the cottages catered perfectly for our 5 month old and bouncy Labrador! We will definitely all be back again, thanks guys!

We stayed in Light House Cottage for four nights. The attention to detail by the owners was outstanding- stylish and practical. Very dog friendly. In a nutshell it was just perfect for us. Near to several beautiful beaches and close to Bacton Wood. 5 stars. We cannot wait to go back there.

“Our first time at Hidden Gem but not East Ruston Cottages.   The cottage is absolutely wonderful and has a very homely feel.  We have had a really relaxing holiday in a stunning location and Hidden Gem is like a home from home.  The beach and dunes are beautiful and the garden has been perfect for our two hounds!  A very dog friendly holiday cottage. All the extra little touches and the welcome gifts have been much appreciated!  We will definitely be back!! "

“Thank you so much for allowing us to be your first guests in Corner Cottage. My first impression was "WOW!". The cottage is amazing, you have thought of everything (even supplied fantastic weather!). The decoration is lovely, beds so comfortable. It was so nice to be able to bring the dogs so they could have a holiday with us and experience the beach for the first time."
