    • “A beautiful family cottage, perfectly located and in a beautiful”

    • “We spent one week at Sweet Briar Barn and loved the cottage - it was beautifully presented, with everything we could possibly have needed for our family of five and with many of those 'extra touches' which made our time there extra-special. It is set in a beautiful, quiet location and is perfectly located for the many local attractions around the Broads, as well as only being a short drive to the many beautiful beaches. We could not have wished for more!”

About the location


Wroxham 4 miles; Norwich 9 miles.

The pretty Norfolk Broadland village of Coltishall is known locally as the ‘Gateway to the Broads’, where, on Coltishall Common, you can find an array of moored boats sitting along the banks of the River Bure. The banks of the River Bure are the picturesque setting of Coltishall Staithe, a large grassed area enjoying riverside pubs and restaurants, a village store/Post Office and attractive cottages. In summer, both locals and visitors enjoy relaxing picnics, feeding the ducks and playing ball games, while in winter, the local waterfowl enjoy Coltishall Staithe’s riverside tranquillity. On the outskirts of Coltishall is the summertime pick-up stop of the Bure Valley Railway, a narrow gauge steam and diesel service running between the market town of Aylsham and Wroxham, and walkers can enjoy the riverside footpath from Coltishall Lock. The local area offers a wide choice of places to visit from craft barns and beautiful gardens to National Trust properties and Redwings Horse Sanctuary, while river boat trips can also be enjoyed. With Norfolk’s beautiful and varied coastline within easy reach, this is a lovely location for discovering Norfolk.
