  • "Really enjoyed our stay at this Burtons Mill apartment."

    It really was a lovely apartment in such an ideal location in Norfolk. I was so surprised by how well provided this accommodation was. The owners have thought of everything to ensure all guests have the best and most comfortable stay. We really enjoyed our stay here and would recommend to anyone looking to explore Norfolk and have a restful break away. The added space of the reading room was lovely, and got very warm during the day which made for a nice relaxation spot. :) Thank you for everything!

  • "The apartment was as described and generally well equipped."

    The kitchen equipent and general decoration is of high quality. However we felt that a number of items that weren't provided should have been available in a luxury self catering place. In the kitchen they didn't provide: a lemon squeezer, a salad bowl, salad servers, a wooden spoon, serving spoons or a bread knife. Also there was nowhere to plug in an electric toothbrush as a result we had to buy a two pin adapter. The double bed is very soft and we had to move to the twin single beds after the first night. The apartment is quite dark inside which means the lights need to be used even during the day.

  • "Property is advertised as dog friendly and the owners have gone out of their way to accommodate dogs however the other residents of the complex are not welcoming of dogs and I would go as far to say the property should not be advertised as dog friendly."

    On arrival walking along the path to the front door with our elderly black Labrador at our side, but not on a lead a resident shouted across the complex “Oi, YOU, KEEP THAT DOG ON A LEAD HERE”. From then on we kept our dog on the lead at all times and followed all the dog rules for the site. Sadly we then received a txt from the owner three days later “I have been asked if you can make sure the dog is not let out onto the communal grounds to do their business but use the grounds near the river”. I replied to the owner explaining what had occurred on our arrival and that our dog has never relieved herself in the grounds. I was not happy with the allegation by implication being made especially as another resident allowed its dog to roam freely. I was advised the matter would be taken up with the management company, sadly to date no further response was received from the owner. Very sadly given our reception although the owner is dog friendly and I believe a dog owner the other tenants are quite hostile towards dogs and as such the property should not be advertised as accepting pets.

    Since this feedback the property was amended and dogs are no longer allowed in the apartment. Property Owner

The property

Offering a fantastic base for touring the Norfolk Broads, Burtons Mill Retreat is a first-floor, duplex apartment which lies in the market town of Stalham near to the River Ant.

Boasting two bedrooms, Burtons Mill Retreat is within walking distance of amenities and within easy reach of the coast too.

After arriving at the property, head through the communal entrance to find the apartment front door, before being welcomed into a spacious hallway where you can store boots and coats.

Step into the attractive open-plan living space to find a plush corner sofa and comfy beanbag in front of the Smart TV, a lovely dining area and a fitted kitchen space equipped with all the appliances you could need.

Enjoy a quiet moment in the unique sun room boasting an amazing Alice in Wonderland theme, with décor relating to the beloved novel and films, including a vintage writing desk, along with another Smart TV and a comfy sofa that converts to a day bed for a sneaky afternoon nap.

The first floor is home to one of the two bedrooms, a twin/king size room with plenty of space and contemporary storage, along with the shower room with a walk-in shower and heated towel rail.

Take the stairs up to the second floor to find the wonderful king-size master bedroom, enjoying an en-suite basin and WC, with a quirky window overlooking the living area below.

The property sits across from the Museum of the Broads, taking you from Roman times through to the medieval peat digging to the present day holiday makers, with fantastic boat tours on a vintage and unique Victorian steam boat to see the boats of the Broads and catch sight of the wonderful wildlife.

The town centre of Stalham is close by with a supermarket and local shops, including a fabulous butchers, to pick up any essentials, as well as boasting a host of pubs, restaurants and takeaways.

The surrounding area is scattered with boatyards, waterways and marinas, all providing interesting scenery to soak up during walks, bike rides and boat rides.

Venture out onto the water on canoes, kayaks or even paddle-boards, with local activity organisers in the Broads to go to if you don't have your own gear.

For a fun day out head to Norfolk's coast at Sea Palling Beach or Happisburgh Beach, both with long sandy shores to enjoy and plenty of seaside amenities.

Families can look forward to trips to the likes of Bewilderwood Norfolk, Roar Dinosaur Adventure, Sea Life at Great Yarmouth and Thrigby Hall Wildlife Gardens.

For a scenic break to Norfolk, choose Burtons Mill Retreat.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

About the location

STALHAM

Wroxham 8 miles; Norwich 15 miles; Great Yarmouth 17 miles.

The market town of Stalham, with its high street with a good range of shops and eateries, is a typical North Norfolk town. There is a small market which comes to the town on Tuesdays and a farmers’ market on every other Saturday, as well as regular sales in the town hall. Stalham is one of the major starting points of Norfolk Broads boating holidays and a museum to give you an insight in to the Broadland environment is a must. Just a few miles inland from fantastic beaches, this is a perfect base for exploring the Norfolk Broads and coastline.
