Beautifully located on the River Bure, this prestigious property is superb for both families and couples. Enjoy access to an 8 seater private motor launch!

Silver Dawn is a prestigious, detached, riverside holiday property and has been completely rebuilt offering contemporary waterside accommodation. It is located on the River Bure in the Norfolk Broads and has a large decked area and a lawned area leading to the waterside, perfect for relaxing and enjoying the boating activity. Mooring is available to the front and rear of the property, and having your own water frontage means fishing is literally on your doorstep (seasonal and licence required). This is an ideal location to explore the popular villages and broads of Wroxham, Potter Heigham, Coltishall, Salhouse and Ranworth, which are all easily accessible with the 8-seater, private motor launch available free of charge and on request directly with the owner. Horning village, a picturesque broadland village with riverside inns, restaurants, a selection of small shops and tea shops, is just a couple of minutes away. BeWILDerwood, an outdoor tree top adventure park makes a great day out for children, or there is Wroxham Barns just a short drive away. Wroxham is known as the "Capital of the Broads", with its selection of waterside cafés, restaurants and pubs. Sandy beaches can be reached within 11 miles where you can experience the delights of the coastal villages. Alternatively, spend a day in the city of Norwich, 9 miles, with its cathedral, museums, theatres and a vast array of cafés and shops. National Trust properties including Felbrigg Hall, Blickling Hall and Horsey Windpump are all well worth a visit. Sailing, cycle hire, fishing and bird watching are all available locally.

    Fantastic building and in a lovely spot on top of the river. In mid-winter it was simply wonderful to watch the river and birds without the holiday boats. Thank you Emily and Nick for setting up the Christmas Tree, it added to the fun of staying at Silver Dawn. Will stay again.

    Amazing location and stunning property, garden lawns needed cutting and general maintenance poor, no instruction manual, wifi awful, house feels tired, should be out of this world, put some of the rental proceeds back

    The house was fabulous everything we needed was there. We enjoyed having the boat a real treat. Great place for a family get together

    Fantastic modern property and really relaxing week for us all. Boat was a bit tired which is why I gave a score of 9. There are a few maintenance issues as discribed in other reviews but these are minor and didn’t affect the holiday and we would definitely come back again.

    Great house in a lovely setting, and the benefit of a boat made it a wonderful holiday. There are no shaver sockets, and some of the door handles stick so take some WD40! The boat is a bit grubby and has no facilities, water, gas etc, but fine for short trips. Otherwise a superb house, great for 4 couples, or 2 families. There are 2 resident ducks who like attention and come in the house if you are not careful.

    Had a wonderful week, adults and children had a great time. Great to have use of the boat which the children loved. Good to be able to take the dog. House was amazing and in a brilliant location. Our only concerns were that there were a few maintenance issues that need to be addressed.

    The location is wonderful and cannot be beaten on the broads. On the whole the house is great and ideal for groups of friends or extended family parties. The boat was a very enjoyable added benefit to get out and experience the broads. It is unfortunate that this property is let down by a few simple things that are easily rectifiable, I was surprised the owner has not sorted these as some have been reported in the past, and some more than once: 1. Dirty windows, what a dreadful shame, they look like they have never been cleaned 2. Loose door handles (ground floor bathroom) nearly falling off! 3. Bedroom doors upstairs not closing properly 4. Glass panel at bottom of stairs not secure and in my opinion could be dangerous 5. Lounge floor had clearly not been swept or vacuumed for our arrival It was also a shame that the mobility aids for the downstairs bathroom were not provided despite our advance requests. Did not see a welcome pack either! Having said all that, on the whole this property is great and we had a very enjoyable week. If the sun is out you will find a sunny spot at all times of day on the decking. We even managed to have a three course lunch outside in t-shirts in March and no one was cold, remarkable!
