Property Description

Enjoying a delightful waterfront location, this very comfortably furnished and well-equipped, detached holiday home is set in the very heart of the Norfolk Broads. Full advantage is taken of the stunning views from its first floor living room, and these can be further savoured from the seating area on the verandah leading off. A lawned garden leads down to the river’s edge, where a private mooring is available for a guest’s boat, and use of an all-weather day boat to explore the famous waterways is also included.
Good bird-watching and fishing can be enjoyed from the property and a games room offers visitors table tennis and a pool table to while away spare time. A paradise for nature lovers, the Broads are the most important wetlands in Europe and are alive with ducks, geese and swans, as well as a host of other birdlife including spoonbills and herons. The area is crisscrossed by numerous footpaths and cycling trails, ideal for exploring on foot or by bicycle. The 61-mile Weavers’ Way is a long-distance footpath that winds through the best parts of the Broads on its way from Cromer to Great Yarmouth.
Wroxham, the ‘capital’ of the Broads lies within easy reach, boasting many waterside cafés, restaurants, shops, railway station and other amenities. Using the river launch provided, it makes a pleasant way to discover the region, stopping off along the way.
The city of Norwich (8 miles) with its cathedral and castle museum offers varied attractions including excellent shopping and market place, as well as cafés and fine restaurants to tempt the taste buds. For golfing enthusiasts, a golf course is to be found at Sprowston Hall 6 miles away, whilst for a family day by the sea, sandy beaches can be found along the Norfolk coast, just 11 miles distant. Shops
1/2 mile.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Would have been nice to have a few basic groceries, such as milk, tea, coffee, bread in the property when we arrived. As this is what other holiday agencies do and makes a big difference to the holiday maker. Dishwasher needs updating!!! Aug 2012.
  2. Fantastic location and use of the boat was a great asset! July 2012.
  3. Peaceful location but very near to Wroxham by boat or car. Loved the use of the boat - Excellent holiday! Aug 2011.
  4. Lovely accommodation - everything was just perfect - the only thing we missed was a restaurant or pub within walking distance (for evenings) The description did say rural. March 2011.
  5. Drake’s Dyke is in a wonderful riverside location, with open views along the River Bure and with a view of Wroxham Broad from the kitchen windows. A beautiful property, Drake’s Dyke provided comfortable accommodation, plenty of kitchen equipment and the games room with table tennis and table football was particularly welcome for the children. Feb 2011.
  6. Drakes Dyke is a striking property which takes full advantage of its waterside location. Dec 2010.
  7. The location was excellent, the property was clean and provided all necessary kitchen equipment etc. The children made good use of the games room, the use of the boat was a nice touch. The living space had amazing views. Oct 2010.

  19. The location is just great. With your own boat at the dock just metres from your back door, it’s so easy to jump in for a short pre-dinner cruise, or early morning chug out for a paper. Children really liked the games room with table tennis, snooker and darts. May 2009.
  20. Great House and use of a boat was what won our business. Having used the boat every day, this was a great and valued feature of the property. March 2009.
