Fern Villa is perfectly located close to the Broads where many activities can be enjoyed including boat hire.

This charming, semi-detached, holiday property is located close to the Norfolk Broads in Suffolk’s pretty southern broadland village of Oulton Broad, which offers boat hire and river trips, speed boat racing and the opportunity to sit and watch the waterborne world go by. Fern Villa has been renovated to a very good standard and offers a place to relax and unwind whatever the season, and has a fully enclosed courtyard garden, an ideal setting to kick back and relax. Very well-placed to visit the many attractions in the area, including the beaches at Lowestoft, and just 11/2 miles away from family fun at Pleasurewood Hills theme park. Discover Southwold, famous for its Adnams beer, popular summer theatre and pier. Other attractions include Aldeburgh, Dunwich, RSPB Minsmere and the lovely Suffolk coastline, as well as exploring the pretty market towns, all within an easy drive. Carlton Marsh nature reserve is just a short walk away from the property. The medieval city of Norwich with its castle, cathedral, museums, fine shopping and restaurants is a must to visit. Shops and restaurants 100 yards, pub 50 yards.

    The house is lovely and well maintained, it is entirely south facing so gets very hot and it is difficult to get cooler air to circulate as nearly all the windows face south. It is on a road that the locals zoom down with pavement on only the opposite side to the property and is very close to a very popular pub, nothing wrong with that but it means that the property location is not ideal for young children due to the dangers of the road and noise at night from revellers. Overall the property location was not for us but for older children or adults it's ideally located for Lowestoft and Oulten Broad and the lovely Nicholas Everitt park. It is clean and well appointed although the bedrooms are on the snug side.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for taking the time to review our cottage 'Fern Villa' after your stay. We really appreciate you saying that the cottage is lovely and well maintained, that's fantastic to hear. This is reflected in the numerous positive reviews we have received not only online but comments in our visitor's book at the property, we also get text messages and hand written notes/cards. The weather has been exceptionally hot this summer (breaking records in many instances) and this has been a problem throughout the UK and Europe. The temperatures for the week commencing 4th August 2018 in Oulton Broad, Lowestoft ranged from 18C up to a staggering 31C - Temperatures were high that week. We have 3 fans in each of the bedrooms, and of course they can easily be moved around the house if needed. All of the windows can be opened. Our road is a small narrow road with a pavement on the opposite side of the road to the cottage so no problem at all with walking along the pavement, which is completely safe to do so. The pavement is DDA width compliant. Our road is a 30mph speed limit. It is difficult to drive at more than 30mph (and is also illegal) as it is quite a small narrow road. Thank you for saying our property is clean and well appointed. We are always very proud to get such positive feedback. We work very hard to make sure our cottage is up to standard. Our courtyard garden which can be seen in the photos section on the website is enclosed and safe for children to play in. Our past guests have commented on how secluded and private it is. Fern Villa is an old cottage which has a modern interior. You can see from the photos on the website that the bedrooms are snug. What isn't mentioned is that the downstairs is a very different story. We have a decent sized, well-equipped kitchen with a separate dining room. The cottage boasts a good sized lounge, (leading out to the garden) and a separate seating area with a bookcase just next to the lounge. We are also lucky to have a downstairs toilet and separate utility room (washing machine and tumble dryer) for our guests to make full use of. We have parking for two cars on our driveway. Our past guests have really appreciated all these added extras. We are really sorry that Fern Villa hasn't reached your expectations and hope our response clarifies the issues raised
