This first floor conversion of a detached boat shed, with the owner living on-site, overlooks the River Waveney in a private marina. The open plan living areas and floor to ceiling windows open out onto Juliet balconies and include a private sun terrace. Beccles is the heart of the Southern Broads that form part of the Norfolk Broads National Park. This quaint market town is host to delightful pubs, restaurants and artisan cafés. The River Waveney runs right through the town and you can hire day boats close by and there are marked walking routes and perfect wildlife spotting from the elevated position of the apartment. Beccles Lido, a traditional outdoor heated swimming pool that sits alongside the river, is a ’must see and do’ experience during the warmer months. To the east you can visit Lowestoft, with sandy beaches, traditional piers and fine seafood dining. To the west you will find Norwich, a fine city, home to a castle, cathedral and superb shopping, restaurants and nightlife. Beach 10½ miles. Shops, pubs and restaurants 400 yards.

    Such an amazing experience and the perfect place to celebrate my sister’s 50th birthday. The views out of the windows were stunning. The place was immaculate and so very clean. Very luxurious and very warm and comfortable. All the mod cons were such a lovely touch and they had thought of everything. Just a note of warning, if going in the winter and it’s icy outside, please be careful on leaving the loft as the patio area/entrance is extremely slippery. We had to boil several kettles to clear the ice from the entrance and the stairs up to the loft. I would have given this property ten out of ten for the loft except we never got our welcome bottle of bubbly as mentioned in the welcome note on arrival. All we was left with was an empty wine bucket. Getting that would have been the icing on the cake to an otherwise fabulous weekend.

    The cottage is a gorgeous modern styled home. The smart technology in the home is rather impressive. The location of the cottage is beautiful on the boat quay. My girlfriend and I went for a weekend and when we left we decided we would come back hopefully for a week.

    Great outside view and modern spacious living area. Bedrooms are a little compact but still comfortable. Could do with some more mirrors. Walking distance to town with a variety of bars and restaurants.

    Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Loft was in a great location overlooking the boats. Great decor and comfy seating. Lots of open space and light. Definitely return.

    Four of us spent a short break at Derbys Loft and were welcomed with a bottle of bubbly . The apartment was nicely decorated and equipped well and overlooked the river at Beccles . An enjoyable stay .

    Wonderfully relaxing place, time to sit and watch the river and just do nothing, owners made us feel very welcome and clearly have great taste in interior design.
