Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Happy Days Exceeded our expectations. Was spotlessly clean. Would definitely go back again. March 2012.
  2. Excellent base to explore the area - the railway station 5 minutes walk away means you can leave the car parked securely at the cottage and enjoy days out to Yarmouth and Norwich easily. Village is very easy to walk to and has good shop and fish and chips. Oct 2011.
  3. This property had a wonderful, tranquil riverside aspect. The accommodation was very pleasant, comfortable and felt very secure. We enjoyed every moment from arrival to departure even returning early from a day out to simply ’chill’ and enjoy staying ’home’. The use of the dingy was an added bonus and the personal touch of fresh flowers was much appreciated. Oct 2011.
  4. The cottage is set in an ideal situation overlooking the river, ideal in season for fishermen, but, still plenty to see and do if not. You could just sit and watch the wildlife, the ducks, the geese, the swans, the herons and even an otter, or relax and watch the boats sailing too and fro. The local pub The Yare is well worth a visit, reasonably priced good home cooked food, as is the Chinese take away on the main street. Also worth a visit is a trip to the RSPB site at Strumpshaw Fen. A quick walk up the road to the station and you can get a train into Norwich, Lowestoft or Great Yarmouth, all good to wander around and noo hassle in having to find a car park. All in all, a great place for a holiday, with plenty to do or just to relax in comfort. June 2011.
  5. Wonderfully situated right by the river. Excellent for canoeing activities and watching the world go by. The property was beautifully clean and welcoming, with a bunch of flowers for our arrival. Recommended. May 2011.
  6. Ideal situation, good access in what can be a difficult location for accessing properties. Well maintained, clean and well presented. Oct 2010.
  7. The property was in excellent order & very well kitted out with all that was required. The site of the cottage couldn’t have been situated any better, right by the river. The perfect spot for a relaxing holiday & within easy reach of places to visit. June 2010.
  8. The property was well equipped and a good base for getting out and about. May 2010.
  9. Nice size for 4 people, good river access for fishing, little slipway 2 get into dinghy easily. Feb 2010.
  10. It was exactly as it said in your brochure, simple but good. Only the shower had very little power so it took a long time getting wet. Nov 2009.
  11. Nice clean accommodation, location exactly what we wanted. Nov 2009.
  12. Just what was needed to recharge our batteries. Aug 2009.
  13. Really good for fishing. A really excellent location to explore Norfolk and Suffolk from. Aug 2009.
  14. We arrived at the chalet rather early and met the owners who were very helpful and considerate the chalet was spotless and well furnished we really enjoyed our stay. Sept 2007.
