Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. The property was in a good location & the people that run it are very good. June 2012.
  2. Excellent accommodation in a excellent location, very relaxing and peaceful stay, although the weather was quite cold and miserable the holiday lodge was very warm and cosy, we would definitely return again. April 2012.
  3. This is a brilliant location on the Broads, you can completely close yourself and everyone in. Our dogs were not able to escape and they didn’t get the urge to jump in the river either! There is a brilliant chippy up in the village (turn right at the top of the hill after you’ve crossed over the railway). The Yare is good for real ale but we didn’t eat there during our week, we cooked 5 nights out of 7 as the kitchen facilities are so good. There is also a BBQ on site that we made full use of. The other night we dined out was a takeaway from the Chinese in Acle and was delicious. The lodge is in an excellent location for fishing, walking and ideally located to visit Norwich and Gt Yarmouth. We’d definitely book again! Sept 2011.
  4. Lovely location, well suited for watching the boats go by. Easy access for touring and visiting Norwich. Friendly and helpful owners provided local advice when asked. Recommend hiring the day boat for pottering on the river - very relaxing! July 2011.
  5. Very well equipped and the owners very very helpful made the holiday more enjoyable - always willing to help. June 2011.
  6. A fantastic place - really clean and well equipped. Great to be near the water front - we spent ages feeding ducks/geese/swans and watching the boats (and the sea scouts on Thursday nights going out in their canoes!!). It was so peaceful and the welcome from ’the brothers’ was lovely. May 2011.
  7. A well appointed cottage, very friendly ducks, will never have any stale bread. A visit to Thigby Hall is a must. Wroxham and Horning, great places to visit. May 2011.
  8. Riverside Retreat is in a fabulous location, not on main river but very Quiet. The cottage is excellent in cleanliness and furnishings and the owners are the most helpful people you could meet. An excellent holiday which I would recomend to anyone. The Dayboat is a must if you wish to explore the river. April 2011.
  9. We had everything you would need in it like home from home and also a dingey which we realy enjoyed. Also the owners were soo helpful like when I needed a new hoover bag they got straight away. We coudnt fault them. They were so friendly and helpful. Nov 2010.
  10. Very well laid out and spacious. Oct 2010.
  11. The property was light and airy, on the river, not main river, plenty of room, everything was in it that was needed for a comfortable holiday. July 2010.
  12. It is a very comfortable, well decorated, clean property - just what you need for a relaxing comfortable holiday with no cares. June 2010.
  13. This was a fantastic property in a secluded area. Beautiful and clean and every amenity you could want. The owner was really friendly and could not be more helpful. We parked the car and never used it for the whole week. Used the train most days. We will be booking again next year. May 2010.
  14. Good condition, clean, great location, well furnished inside and out, easy access to boat hire and excellent angling centre. Easy walk to the Yare pub and Brundle station. Dec 2009.
  15. Generally great all round. Nov 2009.
  16. The tranqility of the site. The helpfulness of the owner in fact everything about River Retreat. Oct 2009.
  17. A very well equipped property, the owner was very helpful and it is in a fantastic location. We re-booked it as soon as we got back last year. Sept 2009.
  18. The owners of the property were very helpful, polite and efficient, nothing too much trouble for them. Highly recommended. Feb 2008.
  19. We have used many of your properties but I have to say this one was brilliant and will be booking it again. Sept 2008.
  20. Property itself far exceeded expectations. Friendliness and accessiblity of owners was a major factor in the enjoyment of the holiday. Added bonuses were the proximity to a living river and an honest, working boatyard. Excellent. Nov 2008.
