Enjoy fishing directly from our 100' quay head onto the main River Bure. Popular location for all levels of anglers, offering some excellent coarse and Pike fishing. Roach, Tench, Bream, Rudd and Perch are regularly caught. Rod hire, tackle and bait are all available locally. Wonderful location to escape to and relax. Available all year to let you enjoy the seasons in all their glory. It has a private mooring with power and water supply for you to use with our compliments should you wish to bring your own boat or hire one (available in the village ,5 minute walk). A tranquil setting within a beautiful garden, complete with summer house and a lagoon full of wildlife. The impeccably equipped cottage has every convenience and is all on one level with ramped access (only step; the front door threshold) . Enjoy an easy 5 minute stroll into the delightful village of Horning with shops (excellent deli), pubs,general store, fish restaurant, tea shops and seats on the village green to watch the river activity. We have an additional bed settee in the bedroom perfect to sit in comfort to watch TV/DVD or listen to music. There is also a king size electric bed that folds away and can be used in the lounge. We provide all bed linens, kitchen roll, foil, cling film, toilet rolls, tissues, antibacterial liquid soap, dishwasher and washing machine tabs, salt /pepper, fairy liquid, tea, coffee, biscuits etc. Perfect location for walking, cycling or just come and relax in the comfort of our home. You can enjoy a trip on the Paddle Steamer which sets off from the Swan pub in the village. Sliding glass doors open out onto a veranda for warmer days with spectacular views. Myself, or my housekeeper who is excellent, will have everything ready for your stay. Spare bed linens/ pillows/ duvets will be found in the cupboards and the main king size bed will of course be freshly made up ready for you. The shops/ pubs/fish restaurant are only a five minute walk into the village. Rechargeable torch in the kitchen to walk home; put the bridge lights on before you go! With various seating areas you can just sit and soak up this truly unique location.The property is in a tranquil setting; ideal for watching the boats and wildlife. Although in a quiet location, it is only a gentle walk (approximately 250 yards ) from Horning village, 5 minute drive from Wroxham, and 15 minutes from some of the best beaches in Norfolk. Extract from our visitor book: We had seen Noosa Sound cottage from cruising on the river and decided it looked a delightful place to stay, We looked it up on the internet and very much liked what we saw and booked it for a week's holiday. Well our breath was quite taken away when we actually arrived and saw how beautiful it actually was from the moment we crossed the private bridge that led to the cottage, we passed the family of swans resting on their nest at the edge of the inner mooring. Noosa Sound cottage lived up to and surpassed my dreams, it was absolutely immaculate, cosy and comfortable, every room was filled with everything you would ever need and more. My words to my husband were “I think I've died and gone to heaven” The views from the large patio windows took in the beauty of the gardens leading down to the river, where many happy hours were spent catching fish by my husband. We spent a very relaxing time enjoying the lovely garden which was so well maintained, we enjoyed many happy lunches & drinks reading, relaxing and soaking up the lovely tranquility. We watched with interest the family of swans going about the daily activities with the signets growing bigger each day. We enjoyed walking into the village and getting our daily fresh rolls cold meats and provisions from the array of wonderful local shops, stopping on our way for a drink or two at the village pub (New Inn) before heading back to our cottage. I don't think you could ask for more, the setting, the comfort, the sheer beauty of the cottage and its large gardens, the relaxing atmosphere, wildlife and of course the fishing. Thanks Val and Ian for allowing us to enjoy your wonderful cottage, we will be coming back as often as we can. Lynn & Martin GibsonMore
