Guest reviews

We had a wonderful family holiday in Hamilton House (apart from the weather). We would highly recommend this cottage and we have been to many cottages in Norfolk over the past 10 years. The garden at Hamilton House is superb! Beautifully landscaped and with enough lawn space for ball games and children and dogs to play. It is entirely enclosed and private and so safe for dogs! The highlight for our three grandchildren was the wonderful bunk bed system. Great memories were made for them.

Mr Dennis, 6th of June 2024

We had a great week. The house is beautiful warm, and full of thoughtful and quality details. Beds are immensely comfortable, showers and bath fabulous. We were there for Christmas and the kitchen was was so well stocked with such beautiful quality equipment which made cooking for 10 a delight rather than a chore. There were many! The boat themed family room - utterly amazing and enjoyed by the children and adults alike. The craftsmanship and intriguing fittings and details will long be remembered. We also enjoyed the garden (when the weather allowed).We sat around the fire pit for lunch on Boxing Day and the children toasted marshmallows. Ther garden was great in the winter so will be amazing in the Summer I should think. The house does not feel like a holiday let - it feels like a lovely home and we really enjoyed it being our home for a week.

The Taylor's, 15th of January 2024

We had the most wonderful stay at Hamilton House to celebrate New Year's and will be sure to return in the summertime. Thank you! All of the bedrooms were beautiful, unique and incredibly comfortable each with en-suites that were clean and well equipped. The kitchen, living room and dining room were all a good size for 10 adults and were all great spaces to spend time together. It was useful to have a separate utility room for washing. Finally the garden was amazing! Cannot wait to come back.

Will Butterfield, 8th of January 2024

We adored the house and beautiful gardens, it was a perfect stay for our 2 children and Brandy our Labrador who was very well behaved. The house was beautifully decorated and kept to a lovely high standard. We will 100% take the house next year. My daughter adored the children's bedroom and just had the most wonderful time.
