Lovely well equipped cottage. Super, quiet location beside the water. Easy reach of local shops, restaurants and boat hire. Bonus was a perfect week weather wise.

Great cottage on the Norfolk Broads. Slightly expensive but I think that may be because of the location. Some parts of the cottage are a bit old-fashioned - the kitchen could do with an update - but the rooms are lovely and large and the beds are extremely comfortable. The owner is very friendly and helpful, and the cottage is in a very good location. The outside would be amazing on the water if it were not for the herons. Some people may love the birds but the thought of a heron which walks into the kitchen unnerved us and so we didn’t use the garden at all. I do think it should be stated on the cottage site that many visitors feed the birds and so they may be friendlier than other visitors would like.
