Peaceful Lakeside Cottage Close to the Broads and Beaches

A cosy traditional style cottage in a rural peaceful setting overlooking a picturesque lake. Ideal for couples and families looking for a relaxing holiday and as a great base to explore the Norfolk Broads, countryside, seaside towns and beaches.

You will find plenty of wildlife to enjoy around the lake behind the cottage. A short stroll from the cottage is a traditional local pub and access to Weavers Way (a dismantled national railway footpath).

Lovely sandy beaches at Sea Palling and Mundesley are only a short drive away. The nearby town of Stalham has all the essential amenities like newsagents, local shops, banks, chemist, takeaways, pubs, and a Tesco with petrol garage.

Other popular villages and towns like Horning, Wroxham (for the Broads, boat trips and day boat hire), North Walsham, Cromer and Great Yarmouth, are within easy reach. The city of Norwich is a great place for shopping and sightseeing and is only a 30 min drive away. There are several National Trust properties within easy reach.

The cottage has an open plan ground floor. A comfortable lounge area, with flatscreen TV, DVD and video player, and stereo (a library of videos, CDs and books are provided). The kitchen and dining area are well equipped with cooker, microwave and fridge freezer. Sliding patio doors from the lounge open onto a private patio area overlooking the lake. Young children should be supervised whilst around the lake area. Upstairs are two bedrooms; a double with views overlooking the lake to the rear, and a twin with countryside views to the front.

4/5 Good

Nice place to get away from modern life
Spent a long weekend here and it was excellent. We didn't have a car with us but there are plenty of walks nearby and the beach was within cycling distance. I recommend East Ruston Vicarage Gardens for an afternoon out. There is an excellent collection of old James Bond VHS tapes for evenings in if the weather's bad.

5/5 Excellent

Amazing view
We absolutely loved our stay, the view is relaxing and stunning, could stay looking at the pond for ages. Great for toddlers and baby too, totally child proof. Kitchen equipment could have been richer, but we made the most out of it! We would definitely come back.

5/5 Excellent

Wonderful location
A very peaceful and cosy stay with our two children. The breakfast swan visits from the nearby lake were very popular as were the extensive library of kids books. Overall very well equipped and comfortable. Thank you

4/5 Good

1/2 term stay
The property was well presented, cosy and well equipped and very convenient to explore the area. We would recommend this cottage. Some instructions regards operating the heating system, would have been helpful.

5/5 Excellent

Fantastic get away
Really lovely cottage in very quiet location but close to lovely countryside walks! We very much enjoyed getting away from the city (Norwich) and explore a part of Norfolk that we’ve never been to despite having lived in Norwich for 20 years! The cottage had all we needed and was lovely and cosy!
