“Great place to stay on the broads”
Reviewed August 15, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This was a great place to stay in the broads seeing all the boats and very friendly swans my one tip would be get the river taxi to take you to the little house as the walk to the house even with the trolley it's a fair way with all your baggage but trust me it is well worth the walk

Thank you for the review, Jeff; although we are only five minutes walk from the car park, we do recommend taking the river taxi when you arrive with your luggage and supplies - it is a lovely and relaxing way to arrive! Gill

“Comfortable and good value.”
Reviewed October 13, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The little house is in a good location, being convenient for the shops and cafes in Potter Heigham and yet far enough away to be peaceful.It has pleasing views from the front, and a beautiful view from the rear garden, over the river.
Being able to hire a dayboat from nearby and moor it at the cottage was a bonus.
The house itself was clean and comfortable, and the little kitchen,though compact,was well-equipped.

“You won't want to leave!”
Reviewed June 10, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Beautiful cottage, in lovely location. Very well appointed and comfortable, everything you need and more is provided. Visited by swans, ducks and geese with their off-spring every day- we kept running out of bread!

“You wont be dissapointed”
Reviewed September 14, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Best holiday we have ever had.If you want peace and tranquillity this is the holiday for you.
We had 2 weeks,usually after 10 days i am ready to go home but this time could have stayed a lot longer.Saw otter outside the cottage,swans were so tame would eat out of your hand,one took up residence. Sea Palling is only a few miles away great for walking dogs,saw seals so close could make out facial features. ant wait to go back again.
The cottage is like home from home,has all amenities
Thank you for a wonderful holiday.

“Sail in the day, comfort and relaxation in the evening.”
Reviewed June 11, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Very welcoming on arrival, clean and spacious. Marvellous to be able to moor our boat in the dock. Very enjoyable to sit in the garden and watch the boats and wildlife.
Secure for our little dogs, they loved watching the river too.
