    Property description
    Rental Home – 
    2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
    Holly Tree Cottage is situated midway between the National Nature Reserves of Hickling and Barton Broads in the heart of the Norfolk Broads, close to beautiful locations like How Hill Nature Reserve, Blickling Hall and Horsey Mill (all National Trust), and miles of clean, sandy beaches. Within easy cycling distance you can hire anything from a canoe to an electric day boat to a river cruiser to explore the Norfolk broads, or take a ride with one of a number of passenger boats. There is independent parking for one car (plus additional space in our courtyard), all behind electric gates, and there are bus routes to Wroxham, Norwich and Great Yarmouth which pass by the house.

    This is an ideal base for nature lovers, with many RSPB, Norfolk Wildlife Trust and other reserves within a short dri...

    Additional amenities & feature info
    Holly Tree Cottage is a completely separate part of a Victorian house in a pretty village, less than 100 yards from the local pub (with excellent food!) and the Post Office/shop.

    There is a fully fitted kitchen with gas cooker, microwave, washing machine and everything you are likely to need. The living room has a stereo (easily attachable to your own MP3 player!), 32' LCD TV, DVD/CD player and digital TV recorder, with a comfortable leather suite and an extensive selection of books, DVDs and CDs. WiFi internet access is included, and this was recently upgraded to fibre so is pretty fast for the countryside!

    The kitchen, living and dining rooms, and shower room are all on the ground floor, at the same level, and so if you have a member of your party who prefers not to use stairs, t...

    How to get there
    Airport: Norwich: 9.3 mi
    Railway: Hoveton & Wroxham: 6.2 mi
    Ferry: Harwich: 87.0 mi
    There are hourly train services from London to Norwich, the major city and centre of Norfolk, from which frequent local train services run to our local station Hoveton and Wroxham, just 8 miles away. From here you can easily take a taxi, or we would be happy to collect you from Wroxham if we can. Whilst a car will enable you to travel further affield, there are several bus routes which pass by our house, and we have four bicycles for those wishing to explore the area on muscle power alone!

    For visitors flying to the UK, Norwich has a busy airport, but the nearest major airport is London Stansted, about 2 drive hours from us, but also well connected by train and bus to Norwich.

    For those arriving by car, note that Catfield is just off the main A149, midway between Stalham and Potter Hei...

Our second holiday at Holly Tree Cottage and we enjoyed it as much as last year. The cottage is situated in a perfect, quiet village with no noise around, but close enough to the beaches, local amenities and the Norfolk tourist areas. The cottage is very well equipped also has a woodburner which we used one evening (in June). When... more

Hi Gingycat (we know who you are!), thanks for your (second) great review of Holly Tree Cottage, and without us needing to ask too! We hate asking for reviews, but we also know they're very important for those looking for somewhere to stay, so when we receive one without even asking it's ..... what's the modern word .... oh yes... more

A little gem in the depths of the Norfolk countryside, Holly Tree Cottage is well placed for visiting the lovely coastal areas, nearby National Trust properties and also the famous Broads. This cozy little cottage, part of the owners property, is set in a private garden (which sadly, due to inclement weather, we never got to use) and has every... more

Thanks Maggie for such a great review, it was lovely to have met you and Bett and chatted over a mug of coffee! Sadly it was unseasonably chilly for May this year, but nice to know you got to grips with the wood burner and stayed warm over your stay. Cynth and Mike more
