Beds were clean and comfortable I know these are small points but all add up to a bad experience. But the worst part was the owners visit who turned up on Monday evening, asked me how the cottage was, then immediately spoke on phone, wandering in circles in the car park for 10 mins, whilst I stood at the door totaly ignoring me, then announced he was so busy and had to go,that is no way to treat an customer! I have never felt so humiliated in my life. As a retired procurement officer for a multi-national company, had any of my suppliers did that, they would be looking for a new customer! He then left without my feed back, leaving a buiness card . I will never recomend any of his properties! Please publish this & share this with Owner I look forward to his feedback Kind regards Mr Robert Douglas

The property

This beautifully-positioned, bright and airy detached waterfront chalet is situated on the Norfolk Broads, just a short walk from the popular village of Horning. This lovely property is in an excellent location to enjoy and explore this wonderful location. Located in a quiet area on a private road, you will immediately enjoy the peace and tranquility on your arrival. There is ample parking to the front of the property and the front door opens to a hallway giving access to a comfortable sitting room with dining area from where you can admire the wonderful views over the garden and down towards the water’s edge. Doors open to a patio offering an ideal place to enjoy a morning coffee, an evening meal or just relaxing with a book whilst watching the world go by. From the sitting room there is a separate kitchen with access to the utility room which has the benefit of an external door offering secure bike storage. There are four spacious bedrooms, two on the ground floor and two on the first floor, with a single and double room along with a bathroom on each floor. Horning is a picturesque Broadland village located on the River Bure in the heart of the Norfolk Broads with village amenities such as pubs, shops, boat trips and a tea room. Surrounding the village is wonderful countryside, woodlands and marshland with exceptional wildlife all around. From the village you can also take a paddle boat steamer to explore the superb waterways and enjoy a drink as you go from the on-board bar. Close by is the popular village of Wroxham with a selection of shops, pubs and restaurants; it’s also an excellent point for hiring a boat for the day and enjoying the waterways, plus just a short drive or cycle ride brings you to the wonderful Norfolk coast. Surrounded by spectacular waterways and a perfect base for exploring Norfolk, this spacious cottage offers a delightful holiday retreat whatever the time of the year.

About the location

HORNING

Wroxham 3.5 miles; Norwich 11 miles; Great Yarmouth 17 miles.

The village of Horning is perfectly located for exploring the Norfolk Broads. Set on the River Bure, the village stretches a mile along the banks and enjoys a number of waterside properties, pubs, shops, restaurants and a popular tea room. For a fun trip out you can enjoy a double-decked paddle-steamer, a purpose built boat for the Broads, which can even be privately hired for up to 100 people. The boat also has the benefit of a bar and occasionally a live jazz on board! Horning also enjoys a summer fete, regular sailing races and many other events especially throughout the summer. A lovely location for the Broads and beyond.
