A picture perfect location by the River Bure with countryside views. Enjoy fishing, quiet country lane walks or trips to the coast.

Tucked away down a quiet country lane, nestling by the church and virtually surrounded by its owner’s meadows, Church Cottage is in a little conservation village with a commanding view over nearly an acre of lawned gardens running down to the River Bure. A more peaceful setting is hard to imagine with the landscape almost unchanged since the days when the Norwich School of Painters used to stay in the village and capture idyllic scenes from the meandering waterways. Visitors are able to fish from the garden and from the owner’s meadows. Miles of riverside and country lane walks can be enjoyed straight from the drive gateway. Church Cottage is situated between the Broads and the North Norfolk coast in a superb setting. It is a family house which has been recently lovingly renovated to E.T.C ‘4 Star’ standards to form an exceptional country holiday cottage. The coast and the Broads are readily accessible. The fine old city of Norwich is 12 miles away with one of England’s best shopping centres and a great wealth of historic buildings including the castle and the cathedral. All of Norfolk’s famous tourist attractions are within easy reach and several of the NT’s prime properties are in the area. Shops 2 miles.

    A lovely retreat ....a rural idyll. Comfy beds and well equipped...3 toilets, 2 large lounges and kitchen..a super place for a family holiday....the storage heaters were more than adequate even in cold weather...and log fire was a bonus. Absolutely fabulous

    A very quiet location by the church, with an extensive private garden adjacent to the river -access to the little rowing boat provides fun for children and adults alike. This was our second visit, both in winter, so can only imagine how idyllic it must be on a hot summers day!! The cottage is warm, spacious and comfortably appointed. A number of prolific cooking apple trees in the garden gave us a good stock of windfalls to take home.

    Beautiful location. Loved the garden, wildlife and availability of rowing boat to enjoy the river. Well equipped kitchen. Some minor issues with wood burner not working and taps in kitchen. (Owner informed and said would attend to these matters. ) A little dusty and cobwebs in corners, some mould in bathrooms, but is the end of peak holiday season and maybe not been opportunity for maintenance.

    This was one of the nicest 'cottage' holidays we have had, not least because the place in which was stayed was a proper, old English cottage and not a converted farm building, etc. The building itself was delightful and the location superb. The accomodation was very comfortable and the facilities generally good, with one or two minor reservations. Such shortcomings, if that's what they can be called (it is a country cottage, not a 5 star hotel), didn't bother us much but might concern fussier clients

    Cottage is quite basic but fine to stay at considering the real beauty of this home is the quiet location next to a church with spacious grounds and the access to the river including a rowing boat to explore a bit further either way down the waterway. We sat there for ages watching for the kingfisher and seeing the herons, moor hens, buzzards, swallows, cormorant, family of swans not to mention the entertainment of the cows that regularly took an evening stroll along the opposite bank. Listen to the toots of the steam train passing nearby and the owls and see the bats. Nearby footpath gave us a lovely walk closer to the steam railway and fields and streams too. Brilliant stay, thank you !

    The position of this cottage was idyllic!! However we felt the bathrooms do need some up dating. There was helicopters flying overhead several times a day every day. When one flew over as soon as we arrived we thought nothing of it but when it became a regular thing it was very annoying. They were before 7am and 4 before 8am sometimes. And there was even one in the middle of the night on the last night. This really spoilt our holiday.

    Have not stayed in a more idyllic location - from the bunnies in the large sheltered garden to the willows hanging over the River Bure where we spent many hours messing about in the boat trying to avoid the swan! Every so often the Bure Valley steam train would puff past a couple of fields away - not close enough to be noisy but certainly adding to the magical feel of the place. Plus there are numerous walks from the door, through the churchyard, along the river, past the mill and sluice gates. The cottage itself is very large, with very comfortable seating and beds (something that's surprisingly hard to find in many cottages we've stayed at). It's also ideally located - not far from Cromer and with a fantastic children's bookshop just 15 minutes away (the Norfolk Children's Book Centre - a must visit if you've got kids!) We felt so rested after our time here and didn't want to leave. Will definitely be booking a return visit - probably more than one!

    Oh dear- what an odd property- Downstairs I would rate three stars and upstairs just ONE! The upstairs flooring is awful- with worn and stained floor boards-easy to get splinters in feet I fear. Two toilets leaked-although the owner acted fairly quickly on that issue. The stairs access is so steep that most adults really need those two bannisters to heave themselfs up. So steep they are a danger and if there is a fall then right right down onto the sink cupboard- lovely! The upstairs area is depressing-There are two seperate lounges downstairs one with adjacent full shower room-why not take the one as a bedroom and block off one of the upstairs bedrooms? Would I recommend this house- sorry -never for whatever age group........
