We just returned from a twelve day pre-Christmas break at Laneway Cottage in the village of Wiveton. It is an absolutely lovely cottage, having everything we needed and much, much more! Laneway has a comfy super-king size bed with cool white cotton sheets. All of the rooms are large and airy. There is both a bathroom and a shower room with a seemingly endless supply of hot water. There is a hair dryer. There is a washer, a dryer, and a Belfast sink. There is an Aga keeping everything cosy, as well as central heating and a huge fireplace, with plentiful logs provided . And the quiet! Blissful... The peace at constant hand! Remarkable... The stars without any light pollution at all! Awesome... We even saw the Milky Way one night. On top of all of these features, Laneway Cottage is dog-friendly. Our two ancient Labradors had a safe, totally enclosed, grassy garden to wander around, and plenty of places to snooze the hours away. Their very slow walks along nearby country bridle paths were short but full of luscious rural perfumes. To be sure, we have never returned from a holiday in our beloved Norfolk so rested; so relaxed. We look forward to our next visit, and the next, and the next. Laneway Cottage is simply the best.
This our third visit to Laneway.
We've been visiting Wiveton for twenty years now, the area offers so much. Woods, valleys, marshes and the sea. Wildlife abounds everywhere (the full moon and bats around our heads on Halloween).
The cottage has everything you need and because you are so close to Cley and Blakeney it's great to leave the car behind.
Wiveton Bell and the Dun Cow are our favourites for local meals.
I can wholeheartedly recommend this place as a taste of stepping back in time to a taste of what England used to be.
Had a great holiday at Laneway - our fourth visit. The cottage is really spacious and comfortable.It gives a taste of country living - open fire,cooking on the Arga and the total peace and quiet - bliss.
We've enjoyed lots of our favourite walks from the door around lovely Wiveton,Cley and Blakeney.
We too have been lucky enough to see the barn owl and also a pheasant sat on the cottage hedge keeping an eye on us! We look forward to our next visit.
We have just enjoyed a week's stay at Laneway and found both the cottage and the location idyllic. The cottage is well appointed and cosy. Central heating plus an open fire and an Aga in the kitchen means the cold weather is easily forgotten once inside. Excellent walks from the door and pretty coastal villages within easy reach from this peaceful and pretty location. We would re commend Laneway to anyone looking for a quiet country break. We have stayed at Hillside and the Saddlery as well and found all of the cottages to be excellent but Laneway has the edge for its great location. We look forward to booking another break soon.
We have just had a lovely week in Laneway cottage.
Hopefully the first of many, we have already booked for next spring.
The cottage has absolutely everything you need, and is in a beautiful location.
You have wonderful walks all around and Holt for shopping.
If you want to relax, walk or birdwatch then this is the place to do it!
A short walk to the coast, Cley and Blakeney, Bayfield walk nearby (regular sighting of a barn owl, over the garden too). Wonderful food wherever you go. Enjoyed a real fire in the evenings.
Can't wait for our next visit.
