Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Perfect location only 5 minutes walk to village of Horning and shops and pubs, fed the ducks, geese everyday several times and heron visited most days for bacon rind. Great view of lawn and water from large lounge window. Sat out on decking weather permitting. Very peaceful and quiet and would stay there again and hope weather would be kinder to us. Lovely meals at the Staithe and Willow restaurant in Horning. Chinese take away excellent. April 2012.
  2. Cosy cottage - beautiful location - Horning is best village we visited. The brochure omits to tell guests to take towels - so don’t forget them! Sept 2011.
  3. This was a very cosy clean cottage in a beautiful location. The owner was lovely and very helpful, and we would certainly return! Aug 2011.
  4. Location, location, location. Aug 2010.
  5. A lovely cottage just off the main river on the broads, the water surrounded two sides of the property and was full of wildlife (swans, heron, ducks and geese etc). As this was not on the main river there were no boats constantly chugging past so was lovely and peacefull. Also for the fishermen out there the sport was good and we caught plenty. Would highly reccomend this cottage if you like the quiet life. Aug 2010.
  6. The property was excellent. Right on the broads, very close to the water if you have young children. July 2010.
  7. A quiet riverside area with always a good variety of wildlife. June 2010.
  8. The accommodation was very clean and very well equipped.The location of the property is in a very good position and only a short walk from the centre of the village. June 2010.
  9. It was well located, spotlessly clean, and easily accesible. Oct 2009.
  10. Fantastic location, fishing from the garden & excellent place to watch the passing wildlife. The dog loved it too! Aug 2009.
  11. Stunning surroundings, spotlessly clean, comfortable property. July 2009.
  12. The property was in a stunning setting, with a wide array of wildlife ducks, geese, heron etc that were there every day to be fed!! The accommodation comprised of kitchen, living room, 1 double and 1 twin bedroom and shower/toilet. Compact but comfortable. Spotlessly clean. July 2009.
  13. Very clean, all that you wanted from a cottage was there. Aug 2009.
  14. Silver Birches is a lovely holiday cottage. Situated next to a quiet dyke off the River Bure there is an abundance of wildlife. The garden and cottage are kept beautifully. The owner, was extremely helpful and made us feel very welcome. Just under half a mile from the village of Horning with excellent restaurants - we would recommend ’Staithe and Willow’ particularly. April 2009.
  15. The accommodation, as always, was excellent. Everything you could want is in the cottage. The owner is very helpful and there is always a very warm welcome. This was our sixth visit to the property and we are looking forward to our seventh next year. June 2009.
  16. We all had a great time, thanks very much. March 2008.
  17. I have stayed in many cottages throughout Gt Britain-this small cottage really caught our hearts! Spotlessly clean,well furnished and very warm! We loved it and would love to return. May 2008.
