The Boathouse apartments have been built on a nautical theme and equipped to a high standard, offering excellent riverside holiday accommodation. The properties (refs CVK, CVL and CVM) are within a working boatyard on the banks of the River Bure enjoying river views, and each property has the added benefit of a motor launch free of charge which can be moored nearby. The motor launch is chargeable during the Whitsun and Summer Holidays, direct from the owner.
Each apartment has a ground floor compact decked area and first floor glass balcony, providing lovely scenery over the water with all its activity. Designed in ‘upside down’ style, the open-plan living area on the first floor has patio doors leading to the furnished balcony - perfect for relaxing and soaking up the atmosphere.
The properties are situated in Wroxham, which is well known as the ‘Capital of the Broads’ and has a selection of cafes, restaurants and shops within a few minutes walk. The wider area is also criss-crossed by numerous footpaths and cycling trails. One of the best ways to enjoy the Broads is on the water by motor launch, or take one of the organised day trips arranged by the neighbouring boatyard. On the water, the beauty of the Broads can be truly experienced with its extensive wildlife (ducks, geese, swans, spoonbills and herons) and its sleepy Broads villages with their pretty flint cottages and attractive churches.
The coast is within easy reach (12 miles) with lovely sandy beaches and a string of villages spreading northwards to the bustling sea towns of Cromer and Sheringham. Alternatively, Norwich is less than 10 miles away with its cathedral, castle, museums, theatres, excellent shops and restaurants. National Trust properties well worth a visit are Felbrigg Hall and Blickling Hall, both within easy reach. Nearest shops are 500 yards. These three properties can be booked together to accommodate up to 16 guests. Moorings for motor launches are outside the property and life jackets are available free of charge. Pet life jackets available on arrival for a refundable £10 deposit. These properties can be booked together to accommodate up to 16 guests.

Unfortunately due to my husband breaking his leg we were unable to go on this holiday so my answers are based on our childrens comments! They were extremely happy with everything and enjoyed their stay very much. So much so, I have booked it again for us all next year!

Wonderful family holiday. Great location near shops, pubs and restaurants. Plenty of space and facilities for our party of 6 adults, 2 kids and a baby. Spacious and safe decking space with plenty of scope for fishing for roach and bream. Beds comfy and showers all good. Washing machine was a bonus as was the welcome pack! We hired a boat for a day but wouldn't recommend the Sundeck model - sooo slow and underpowered! Still fun but we were passed by every other boat on the river - even canoes and it got a bit boring travelling at a slow walking pace! Overall a great holiday and wouldn't hesitate to book again.
