Riverside location

Commanding an imposing waterside position, Riverside House stands on the banks of the River Waveney, the gateway to the southern Broads, a short walk from the market square in the pretty town of Beccles on the Norfolk-Suffolk border. It is set in a street of mostly medieval and Georgian houses, each with their own architectural charm, and has a private, riverside terrace which overlooks the 16th-century church and bell tower where Lord Horatio Nelson’s parents were wed. A house for all seasons, you can sit round the roaring log fire in winter, or enjoy the west-facing private terrace and gardens in summer, watching magnificent sunsets over the fields. Fishermen will delight in fishing from the holiday property’s large pretty riverside garden and patio – a rowing dinghy and two buoyancy lifejackets are even provided for river trips or picnics. Walk to the centre of the charming market square to enjoy a drink at one of the many local inns and traditional country pubs or savour a leisurely meal at one of the restaurants. A range of independent delicatessens sell epicurean speciality local produce and there is even a Victorian sporting shop. Explore all the attractions that Norfolk and Suffolk have to offer including Southwold, 15 miles, with its seafront, pier and summer theatre, or Dunwich Heath and beach. There is also RSPB Minsmere to visit, Aldeburgh with its fishing boats and local seafood, and Snape Maltings with its concert hall. Pleasurewood Hills theme park and Africa Alive are not to be missed, and children will love the treetop experience at BeWILDerwood adventure park. Shops, pubs and restaurants 300 yards.

    Spacious house in a fabulous riverside location within easy walking distance of the centre of Beccles. It is an ideal location for touring Suffolk and Norfolk but you could just stay in the house and enjoy the view if you wanted.

    The cottage was brilliant. Warm, comfortable and very well equipped. The welcoming touches were much appreciated. The only thing we could not find was a maid!

    We stayed at Riverside House in July and can honestly say we had a great time. The house has everything that you need , it is well maintained and very spacious, every room has a riverside view, great for relaxing and watching the boats go by. The fishing that week was great for my husband who caught some large pike!! Would definitely recommend Riverside house and would not hesitate to rent this place again.

    Everything OK except the tap water which was very hard. We used bottled water all week and despite using three lots of descaler on the kettle we still couldn't use it. Would stay again.

    A lovely well equipped house right on the waterside, perfect if like us you came for messing about on the river in boats. It has everything you could possibly need on holiday and was very spacious. Lots of parking space at the house and only a short walk into Beccles which has a wide variety of shops and eating/drinking places. The pub at Geldeston Locks has music in their gardens on Sunday afternoons and Thursday evenings which we enjoyed and came across by accident. All in all a very enjoyable holiday and the weather was excellent for our stay. Even if the weather isn't too great you can still BBQ on the patio thanks to a retractable awning (I want one of these at home now)!
