Fantastic hut with everything you need. We stayed for a week with our small dog no problem. Very private. Lovely dog walk just at the back which goes down to the river. Literally a ten min walk up to the shop and two great pubs that do good food. Sunday lunch at the naggs head was one of the best we have had. There are kennels close by but you can Read morebarely hear them inside your hut. Fishing right out the door and was well stocked. Hide

The hut is basic but adequate with a good shower and toilet. The surroundings are picturesque and the fishing was good. It helped that the weather was good so we spent most of the time outside.

Kingfisher hut is a lovely get away, location is great. The hut has everything you need for a comfy stay. Fishing is what sold it to me, allowed us to combine our hobbies- fishing and running together for a nice 2 night break. Would highly recommend for a special get away (husband 40th ) Would highly recommend the nags head for a meal out

Lovely little place to stay. Beautiful setting and had everything we needed. Shops and pubs in walking distance and fishing was good. Only downside was as a retreat was quite noisy with constant barking dogs from nearly kennels and racing cars and bikes from snetterton race track. Very comfortable and cosy would definitely recommend
