It is one of the Norfolk Broads largest boat hire centres where you can enjoy river trips, hire a boat, enjoy some fishing, sailing, golf, cycling or walking with nature trails to follow. Sandy beaches can be found just twelve miles away and the City of Norwich with its beautiful cathedral, castle, museum, theatre and superb shopping is just eight miles. The village of Wroxham is home to Wroxham Barns, the Bure Valley Railway and Roys - the largest village store in the country. Here you will find riverside pubs, restaurants and shops that are just a short stroll from Waterside Retreat. The area of Wroxham is actually made up of two villages - Wroxham and Hoveton, split by a low bridge that spans the River Bure.

The Broads is well known for its’ fishing activity – you should expect to find perch, pike, bream, rudd, eel and tench in the waters here. Fishing (subject to season and licence) can be enjoyed from the decking at all our properties. We would obviously be remiss if we didn’t mention the joy of just being out on the water. Within a couple of minutes walk from each property, it is easy to hire a boat by the hour, half day, day or longer. If you fancy a boat trip but without you being the Captain, there are a number of organised boat trips which leave from the centre of Wroxham or from nearby Horning.

5/5 Excellent

Excellent location.
The house is very well equipped and has lovely outside space. Located in a quiet residential area and next to the river with plenty of wildlife. Walking distance to restaurants, cafes and boat hire etc. Are group was two active couples in our 60s and enjoyed our stay in the area. The property may not be suitable for families with small children as it has the river at the bottom of the garden and is not fenced off.

5/5 Excellent

We enjoyed every bit of this amazing house, it's so much better than the pictures. It has everything that you'd need to make your stay fun and relaxing. We lacked nothing at all as it is very well equipped with everything you'd need for a holiday rental. Paul was so great at communicating with me promptly at all times. All shops, restaurants and park are within walking distance. We'll definitely be coming back for a longer stay to enjoy the boat rides in the warm weather.

5/5 Excellent

5/5 Excellent

Lovely long weekend
A beautiful property in a perfect location (although satnav got us a little lost finding it first time!). Very well equipped cottage and very quick and efficient communication with the owner to any questions we had both before we stayed and during. Would definitely look to stay at Brightside again. Ps the underfloor heating and ambient/automatic lighting were an added bonus :)
