    Pillar Box House, Hackford sleeping up to 8 guests

    Pillar Box House is a timber-framed property tucked away in the hamlet of Hackford, in the mid Norfolk countryside. With a characterful wood beamed living area and inglenook fireplace, the property also has its own hot tub in the secluded cottage garden.

    Pillar Box House is a large, three-storey pink house named after the red post box in one of its walls, adding a unique touch of character to the property. With a commanding reception hall and timbered ceilings throughout, the property is furnished to a high standard.
    The kitchen and dining area are particularly well equipped and have a wood burning stove, ideal for enjoying a quiet and cosy night in during the colder months. The beamed living room is a mix of period features and modern amenities, with an inglenook fireplace as well as Sky TV. There are two further televisions, one in the library snug and one in the master suite, which occupies the whole of the top floor.
    Outside the property is a fully enclosed garden as well as a lawned area. A hot tub in the garden is the ideal way to relax after a day spent exploring the area and enjoying the local sights. The water is changed before the arrival of each guest, so it may be a little cooler than normal if you want to take the plunge as soon as you arrive.

    "Stayed there for my wife's 60th birthday with all the family. Great place with hot tub and a great weekend."

    "Absolutely loved pillar box house, great base for our stay in Norfolk, lovely comfy beds, beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. A wonderful hamper on arrival along with a cake for the birthday girl, we also loved the hot tub"

    "The cottage was beautiful and a great size for a family of 8 and pets. We had a wonderful stay. The accommodation was just as the photos and had everything we needed. The host was also very helpful sharing the code and welcoming us with a basket of food and drink. Lovely place and highly recommended."

    "Lovely quirky cottage in a small hamlet. Very pretty internally with lovely furnishing and log fires. Kitchen very well stocked with equipment but I would have liked some clear workspace and we all suffered from a non dog environment which I hadn’t thought off before. Saying that we had a lovely break and I would recommend the cottage to anyone. Good area for discovering Norfolk."

    "Had a fantastic stay at Pillar Box House. Beautiful property with everything you need to make it the perfect home from home. The welcome hamper was a lovely touch and the dogs weren’t left out with treats for them too. We loved the hot tub after a long day out and also cosying up next to the log fire. The cottage is in a great spot near to Norwich and the Norfolk Broads. The house has lots of quirky little rooms and it was spacious and spotlessly clean. All in all a perfect stay."

    "Lovely house, quirky and well decorated. We loved how well equipped it was, especially the kitchen and the log fires. Loved the Christmas decorations. Beautiful details and furniture. Comfortable beds. Nice touch with the hamper. The wifi was essential considering the lack of phone signal. We needed more information about how things worked and the local area. For example, we had to search the internet for instructions for the range cooker as these were not provided. We struggled to find the light switches for the hot tub area. We would have loved to do some local walks, but all the information provided focused on “Norfolk Hideaways “ properties in North Norfolk and not local to Wymondham area. The road noise was also very loud at night in some bedrooms. The fridge leaked in the evening (we informed the owner.) Overall though, a brilliant property and perfect for our family Christmas celebrations."

    "Lovely accommodation and would stay again. Clean, spacious, generous welcome hamper and gorgeous rooms with space."
    Confirmed Guest
    "Pillar Box House had just the right amount of space as was needed and was wonderfully cozy for the chilly evenings. The suggestions we have for improvement are relatively minor: 1. the loo seat upstairs kept falling off its pegs, 2. the anteroom to the shower could have done with a curtain that could be drawn across it to give privacy, 3. the lighting over the kitchen table could do with improvement. Though there were two 3 candle candlesticks, one was unusable because it tilted and the only candles around were v. short candle stubs. We were able to buy tea lights the following day so the problem was resolved by the second evening. On the whole, we had a lovely family stay."
