Within the heart of the pretty waterside village of Horning, this wonderful semi-detached, thatched cottage has been completely renovated to offer well-appointed accommodation. Boasting its own private parking and enclosed lawn garden with a chess board patio, this cottage is perfect for relaxing, playing and enjoying the large Norfolk skies. Neighbouring the owners’ administrative annexe, where the owner’s cat lives, it enjoys a wealth of opportunities for walking, cycling and birdwatching on the doorstep.
Horning itself has an array of riverside pubs, cafés and shops. Sailing, motor boat hire and river trips are available, as well as river fishing along local waterways (seasonal, licence required). A number of broadland centres offer bike or canoe hire, possibly the most delightful way to discover the lovely reed lined waterways and their abundant wildlife.

Nearby How Hill Nature Reserve, with its marsh meadows, dykes, woodland and open water, is well worth exploring. A few minutes away is BeWILDerwood, a magical tree top park which promises children a day to remember.
There are excellent wide sandy beaches at Sea Palling and Horsey, 12 miles, both backed with sand dunes. The seaside resort of Great Yarmouth, 17 miles, offers family fun with its famous Pleasure Beach, fun fair and amusements. The Pleasurewood Hills theme park at Lowestoft is 28 miles away, while Cromer, 20 miles, offers traditional seaside entertainment including a renowned end of pier show, Amazonia zoo, shops, restaurants and cafés. Bygone museums, craft centres, National Trust Felbrigg and Blickling Halls, and Horsey Windpump are all within an easy drive. The medieval city of Norwich, 10 miles, has a magnificent cathedral, castle, galleries, museums, cinemas, theatres, excellent shopping, cafés and restaurants. The north Norfolk coastline has RSPB reserves, coastal paths and many picturesque villages which boast an array of pubs and restaurants serving superb locally caught seafood. There are seal watching boat trips from Blakeney Quay and Morston Quay, while historic Holt is 26 miles away for shops, cafés, restaurants and Holt Lowes countryside park and trails. Beach 12 miles. Shop 5 yards, pub and restaurant 50 yards.

    Cottage let down by rather basic & shabby kitchen & bathroom. The bedrooms were beautiful & the living room very nice although would benefit by having better seating. Cottage is supposed to be for 6 people but you cannot sit 6 round the table. We appreciate it is a listed building which makes it difficult to make changes but we feel that with some tweaking this has the potential to be a very special retreat. The owners were very welcoming.

    If you are looking for a characterful cottage on the Norfolk Broads, with comfort and period charm, not to mention incredibly welcoming and helpful owners...then look know further. Situated within easy walking distance of all the basic shops and pubs you could need for provisions and hospitality; you are close to the river and the main hubs of the Broads. The house is quiet, the back garden is a peaceful oasis, and should you wish to stay in, the kitchen is well-provisioned will all you will need. A beautiful and quaint cottage, and a wonderful contrast to the blandness of modern hotels. I hope I shall be returning!

    Lovely cottage in a great location! The Brambles is located in the middle of the gorgeous village of Horning with pubs on the river right outside the door. The Brambles is a beautiful thatched cottage that has everything you could need for an enjoyable holiday.

    First opinions were Oh! God!, but it was the wrong cottage. Brambles was lovely. The owners were so friendly and very helpful. The cottage was immaculately clean, no dust whatsoever. Constructively, if there was an upstairs toilet, television in all the bedrooms, a settee and two arm chairs in the lounge, we would have given the cottage 10 out of 10. Very good, thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
