“excellent stay”
Reviewed 22 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Loved this cottage. Location is spot on been close to village and lovely views both front and rear. Everything you need in the cottage to make the stay comfy. Fishing was good and bigger fish caught after dark. Went with my teenage son and we loved the weeks stay there. We met the owners and they were lovely people with information about the area if you need any. I would definatly stay at this cottage again.

“Great place to stay on the broads”
Reviewed 15 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This was a great place to stay in the broads seeing all the boats and very friendly swans my one tip would be get the river taxi to take you to the little house as the walk to the house even with the trolley it's a fair way with all your baggage but trust me it is well worth the walk

Thank you for the review, Jeff; although we are only five minutes walk from the car park, we do recommend taking the river taxi when you arrive with your luggage and supplies - it is a lovely and relaxing way to arrive! Gill

“Comfortable and good value.”
Reviewed 13 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The little house is in a good location, being convenient for the shops and cafes in Potter Heigham and yet far enough away to be peaceful.It has pleasing views from the front, and a beautiful view from the rear garden, over the river.
Being able to hire a dayboat from nearby and moor it at the cottage was a bonus.
The house itself was clean and comfortable, and the little kitchen,though compact,was well-equipped.
