WHAT OUR GUESTS HAVE TO SAY...
"We’ve just returned from Cape Cottage with our 2 children (7 & 3) and I would have to say it’s one of the most family friendly places we’ve found so far. The cottage was beautiful, well equipped and ideal for children with everything provided such as bed rails, a potty, a step, bath mats, a booster seat and night lights. The site was also absolutely fantastic for children with a huge garden, with swings, slide, climbing frame & shepherds hut plus bikes of all sizes available to borrow and outdoor play equipment. There was also the amazing play barn, just a few steps from our cottage, which was an Aladdin’s Cave of toys & games - doll’s house, dressing up clothes, colouring books, toy kitchen, boxes of dolls, ponies, cars and figures, reading books, baby toys, board games and a jumperoo! My children could have stayed and played all day. Our cottage had its own private garden and bbq just steps away from the play barn so the kids just rushed off to play and we could supervise them easily. Absolutely ideal set up. The pool was also the warmest we’ve had at a farm start before at a toasty 31 degrees: perfect for little ones and indeed my 3 year old was perfectly happy and warm swimming for over an hour. The booking system is great too: hour long private sessions you can book everyday for just your family plus open sessions every day that you can drop in to and share with other guests. Also there is a tiny farm shop selling ice cream just a couple of minutes walk down the farm track. It’s absolutely lovely.
The local area is great too. Unfortunately we didn’t find a great beach for the kids - we tried Hemsby, Caister and Great Yarmouth but found them too windy, and the sea too rough for paddling but we were probably just unlucky with the weather. However we had some brilliant day trips with Pettitts Adventure Park and Bewilderwood absolute gems. Lowerwood farm is absolutely perfectly situated and we never drove more than 30 minutes to get to places. We had to be out by 9am on departure day (so arriving guests can check in by 2pm) but we simply headed to Hirsts farm shop cafe for a lovely cooked breakfast before we drove home. It was very slow going getting out of Norfolk though so next time I might be tempted to drive at night to avoid the traffic.
Overall an absolutely brilliant family holiday in a cottage I just couldn’t fault. Paradise for children of all ages and highly recommended. "

"We had a very enjoyable stay at Cape Cottage. It was very clean and comfortable. The outside seating area with BBQ is lovely. We also enjoyed the pool, and our granddaughter loved the play room and outside play area. The location is also good, with beautiful sandy beaches just a short drive away. We would love to stay again."

"What can i say we were all blown away by Lower Wood Farm!
The communication before our stay was fantastic and very detailed, the host also called me the day before to check arrival times and how we wanted the bed layed out which was a lovely touch.
When we arrived the cottage was spotlessly clean - not a speck of dust anywhere! The cottages are beautifully equipped with lovely decor and all amenities you could require. Our cottage was also so spacious and light- we loved it.
All the extras is what makes this place even more special - the play barn with all the toys for the children, table tennis, pool tables etc etc was really fun and again always kept clean.
The pool was fantastic - we LOVED having our own slots for private swims with other members of our party - this was great from a covid safe point of view but also nice to just have your own space too.
The grounds were lovely and so well kept, the children's outdoor play area was fab too.
We can't fault this place at all and will definitely be back! Thank you!! "

"Cape Cottage was lovely. As a wheelchair user it was spacious and practical with the wet room en suite and the additional bathroom. The owners Jill and Roy were particularly helpful during our stay, nothing was to much trouble. Roy even mowed the farm paths for me to make them more accessible. The facilities were excellent, very well maintained and spotlessly clean. I would definitely recommend a stay."

"Had a lovely stay at Cape Cottage at Lower Wood Farm. It accommodated 2 families in which I wanted. Everything inside was from home. We used it as base to go sightseeing but it is also has facilities for the family and young children if you do decide not to go out, but just to have family time. We’ve been twice now and probably go again in the future "
