    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!), 19' 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 we can even loan you a PC to check your email.

    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, we are happy to install a sin...

    Additional Rate and Availability Information
    Bookings will be confirmed following payment of a non-returnable 25% deposit, preferably by direct transfer into our UK bank account, with the balance payable at least 4 weeks before you are due to arrive. The keys to the cottage will not be released until full payment has been received. Please note, however, that we cannot take payments by credit or debit cards.

    Once your stay is confirmed, we'll be in touch by email a week or two before you are due to arrive, to make sure that all is well, and to answer any final queries you may have.

    AUTUMN 2012
    In 2012 we raised our rates by a few percent, but offered a discount if fewer than 4 (the maximum the cottage can accommodate) were staying. If you're a couple or individual only requiring one bedroom we're happy to deduct £20 per week as preparation of the cottage is much easier. Smaller parties will then pay virtually the same as when we started in 2009.

    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...

The cottage lived up to our expectations with everything provided to make our stay so enjoyable. Cynthia and Mike were very welcoming and went out of their way to also accommodate our frequent family visitors who live in the vicinty. The only thing they couldn't organise was the sunshine which wasn't in abundance during our time in Norfolk This was... more

Thanks for taking the time to post such a positive review of Holly Tree Cottage, it was great hosting your family reunion, but without actually having to put in any of the work that involves! A shame the weather was so disappointing - next time we must try harder! more
