Delightful waterside position with 8 seat private motor launch, private mooring, fishing from garden and balcony, Wroxham Barns nearby.

Enjoying a delightful waterside position, with excellent views of the water, private mooring and its own day launch for guests, Caracol is a spacious, detached property which provides ideal holiday accommodation at any time of the year. A lawned garden leads to the river’s edge and mooring, with an 8-seat private motor launch, available free of charge on request directly with the owner, to help guests explore the popular waterways and pretty Broads villages. The property has a large, fully enclosed decked area, the perfect location for relaxation and watching the boating activity. Having its own water frontage also means fishing is literally on the doorstep (seasonal and licensed). The property is situated just minutes from the heart of Wroxham, which is known as the ‘Capital of the Broads’, with its waterside restaurants, pubs, cafes and shops. Sailing, walking, nature trails, bicycle hire and golf are all available locally. The coast, with its sandy beaches, is only 12 miles and visitors can experience the delights of the attractive coastal villages. For the children, a day out at BeWILDerwood in Horning or Wroxham Barns are a short drive away. Alternatively spend a day in the city of Norwich, 8 miles, with its cathedral, museums, theatres and a vast array of cafes and shops. National Trust properties well worth visiting include Felbrigg Hall, Blickling Hall and Horsey Windpump. Shop 750 yards, pub 1 mile.

    Wonderful week in a great location. The house was perfect for all five adults, with plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms to allow space and privacy. The view was exceptional and the boat was a great addition! We saw the resident otter, Kingfishers, herons and the swan patrolling the water all from the comfort of the lounge. There was plenty of parking and it is well located in walking distance to Wroxham. Contrary to previous reviews we found it clean and well equipped, and will definitely return for another excellent holiday.

    I expected a lot from this property and was disappointed. It needs a good clean and the television is on the slant! To pay this much money and not even get a welcome pack was a great pity. No milk, tea, coffee, biscuits, cake, wine, flowers, fruit...nothing. Even more disappointing was the lack of a proper manual providing information. This should include how to work appliances, emergency contact details, waste and recycling, wi-fi and local places to visit. I'm relatively seasoned in self-catering and can adapt but to have important information in one place makes a positive impact on me and I'm sure it would on most guests. That said, it is a wonderful location and fabulous accommodation in terms of beds/baths. I loved the wildlife, such a joy to see swans, geese, ducks so close-up.

    This was one of the best properties we've stayed in !!! Prior to our visit there had been a couple of reviews suggesting the place needed some TLC and the boat provided was temperamental. I started to have reservations but once arrived at the property wondered what these people were referring to. The property is modern, beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean. The boat whilst it did take a few attempts to get started was wholly reliable and was a wonderful added extra, which we took full advantage of over our weeks stay. The location is quiet and relaxing but very close to amenities.

    This was our second visit this beautiful house in a perfect setting. Sadly the house was in need of maintenance and lacked many necessary items ie toilet rolls, towels etc. The handles on the cupboards upstairs were missing and the shower screen was in danger of falling in the master bedroom. There were major problems with dealing with the household waste.

    The cottage, with its own mooring, was well located. Quiet and peaceful both day and night but within easy walking/cruising distance of Hoveton. The village has a full range of facilities, food outlets and an excellent medical centre (husband got a barbed hook stuck in thumb!). You are close to Norwich, not the prettiest city in England, and the Norfolk coastline. We enjoyed our stay and as an all adult party we found site arrangement secure but I would be less complacent if I had small children. The area is full of activities for families but for adults it's mostly fishing, eating or drinking. Not bad you may think. Drinks and food on the terrace were enjoyed and everything was helped by good weather.

    Caracol is ideally situated for a break on the Norfolk Broads - the boat supplied free was a delightful bonus for our party. We would definitely stay again in the house and would recommend this holiday home and the location of Wroxham.

    We had an excellent time and Caracol is very good for parties of adults. The 4 en suite bedrooms are particularly good. A few issues this year with the cottage and the boat, but nothing to spoil our overall enjoyment. The only reason I have said that we wouldn't stay there again, is that having been twice we will now look for somewhere different for a change.

    Layout and space in the house was great and suited our family needs perfectly. Maintenance and general house keeping was a bit of a disappointment, but overall we have a great holiday.

    The house is lovely and in a perfect setting but it could do with some minor maintenance and more kitchen equipment especially when there is a full house present.
