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.

We had a great time however the house is very tired which is a pity as the location is perfect - one of the bi folding doors was broken so didn’t open- the tv didn’t work ( 3 young children!) however was fixed 2 days from the end of our stay- the 8 seater boat was not suitable for my elderly parents so we had to hire a day boat - the decking steps to the garden were broken so we had to lay 2 slabs we found at the side of the house to reduce the size of the step. If you are looking for luxury then book elsewhere however as mentioned above we enjoyed our stay but unfortunately would not return to this property

The house is set next to the water which is a lovely setting the launch is very useful addition. However there are lots of small issues that need to be fixed I.e decking is very warn TV only has 1 channel, some lights dont work, rubbish left down the side of the house, if these were resolved then I wouldn't have a problem recommending.
