Stunning property, true tranquility and outstanding views, our party of 11, mixed ages 13-75 had the most magical weekend. Everything you could possibly need is there, with comfortable beds and spotlessly clean. Other reviews mention lack of wifi, we found this most welcome and enjoyed quality time as a family playing games and laughter. Highly recommend and hope to return... More

we had a 4 night break on the broads, hired a boat from Martham boats. The boat hand over was excellent, always checking to ensure we had understood. the hints and tips about manovering under power were invaluable. the staff could not have been more helpful including being prompt when requesting a pilot to go under the bridges

After that we got our boat for 12 people we headed off with the very basic instructions from the member of staff. All in all the boat was decent but would not say it was cheap at £160... More

Eight friends and I rented the Silver Jubilee for a 'midweek break', from Tuesday afternoon 'til Saturday morning, and in short we had a fantastic experience! The staff were all very friendly, gave a thorough tour and explanation of the boat, and provided a pilot-service when going under the infamously narrow Potter-Heigham bridge, at no extra charge. The boat itself... More
