This review from Norfolk Hideaways website says it all: "Amazing stay at Moongazer. The owner met us on arrival to show us around the property and left a lovely welcome hamper which came in very handy. The cottage itself has been been restored to a very high standard and has everything you could possibly need. The cottage really suited us, we have teenage son and daughter and they enjoyed being able to look out of the velux windows at the stars at night. It is a great base to explore the Norfolk coastline with walks from the doorstep and further afield. We have holidayed in Norfolk for many years and we felt we really hit the jackpot this time with the property we chose."
