  • "The front door lock is finicky, sometimes jams up and requires a deal of fiddling to get to work."

    The saucepans in the kitchen are too small for a cottage that is for 6 people and are in poor condition with scraped non-stick. All the main lighting was dim old fashioned fluorescent bulbs which took ages to reach their maximum (dim) brilliance.

    Thank you for providing feedback. I am sorry you had difficulty with the front door, as I have not received comments about the door before. I apologise about the size and condition of the saucepans, which were newly purchased in the autumn. I will look to replace these when I next visit the property. I appreciate that some of the lights can take a little longer to become bright, which is why they were mixed with quick bright bulbs in the table lamps throughout the property. Property Owner

    A couple of nice pubs with good food and real ales, The Swan and The Harnser. Would book again for another visit.

    Many thanks for your positive feedback. I am glad you enjoyed Southbank, it’s location, the marina and local pubs. I hope that you will book again to enjoy more of what this lovely location has to offer. Property Owner

  • "As regular holiday let visitors, we would rank this property and stay in our top 2."

    The property is in a superb location to spend a week away. Our first time in Norfolk. The house was a joy to stay in. Spacious, well kitted out, beautifully clean throughout, a pub 5 minutes walk away. Ditto Tesco. We found the people of Stalham quite happy to stop and chat either along the High Street or in the various shops. Wecare considering re booking for October break The welcome package was well appreciated!!! Thank you P.S. The TV was a bit complicated for an old codger like me but a pphone call sorted us out

    Thank you so much for your fantastic feedback regarding the facilities at Southbank and Stalham. I too have found the people of Stalham very friendly and helpful. It was a pleasure talking to you during your stay and I am glad you got the hang of the television. I am delighted you had a good holiday and hope that you will visit again soon to experience more of the local area. Property Owner

  • "A well laid out cottage, warm, furnished well with everything you need for a holiday, clean well presented."

    we were there in November there is a main A road behind the cottage, but it did not affect our stay.

  • "South bank is a nice property in a good location."

    Response of Sykes and owner to a problem with the bath shower was dealt with promptly to our complete satisfaction within 24 hours. Instructions for the oven and microwave would have been helpful but overall we had a very enjoyable holiday.

  • "What’s not to like about Southbank?"

    Spacious rooms, a well equipped kitchen, lots of crockery & fluffy huge towels. We enjoyed watching Netflix in the evenings on the 50 inch television. It’s in a good location, the village of Stalham is in walking distance with some interesting shops & a Tesco close by. The owner was very helpful & easy to get hold of if you needed any help. I really shouldn’t say how much we enjoyed our holiday, helped of course by beautiful sunny warm weather, as we hope to go back there next year & hope it’s not completely booked up!

  • "Good standard of accommodation and very clean and well presented."

    Beds very comfy. Plenty of wardrobe space and hangers. No need to bring your own. For teens - Netflix, I player and good WiFi!! Walk to Tesco and Stalham night street for supples! Nearby beaches are so beautiful and quiet. Dog friendly Bacton is great and you can park for free down little lane opposite a public footpath down to sand. Would be even better if Southbank had some beach items such as a wind break or chairs as it’s one less item to pack/ buy when there. Take a day boat from Simpson’s to see a bit of The Broads. Also visited Norwich and Wroxham by car.

  • "We had a great week at Southbank as a family of 4 with a 1 and 2 year-old."

    The location of the property as a base for lots of outdoor activities is excellent. It is right on the Broads, 10 mins from a blue flag beach (Sea Palling) and with a Tesco 1 min drive away. The property was well-presented, very well equipped and very comfortable, with good space and layout, good for young kids. Master bedroom a good feature - overall much more practical vs traditional/smaller cottages. We had a minor issue on one day but it was dealt with very quickly by the considerate owners, who went out of their way to ensure our stay was uninterrupted. Lovely welcome gift, too. Overall great experience and we will definitely be back.

  • "Shower had no pressure in one bathroom and was either very hot or very cold."

    The cold water tap in the bathroom had little water flow. There was no plug for electric shaver or toothbrush. Washing machine did not work due to blockage of the pipes. No shower rail or hooks to hang towels in any bathrooms. In the second double room, there were no wardrobes in rooms to hang clothes or keep clothes. Bed took up most of the space in the room so no space to walk in the room. A formal complaint was made to Sykes regarding the property and awaiting further response / compensation regarding this.

    Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry that you were unhappy with some of the facilities at our holiday home. There is a mixer tap with shower above the bath and the mixing of both hot and cold water control the flow and temperature of the water. There is also high pressure shower in the en-suite, where the flow of water and temperature is controlled by one single control. There is also a shaver point provided in the main bathroom above the mirror and there is a hand towel holder and hook to enable towels to be placed by the shower in the en-suite. We will look at making additional towel holders and hooks available in the main bathroom. There are two wardrobes available in the master bedroom and a further wardrobe available in the children's room but we will look into the possibility of adding further storage options. Thank you again for taking the time to provide your feedback. Property Owner

The property

In an endearing location on the outskirts of Stalham is a beautifully appointed holiday home, ideal for a family getaway to Norfolk.

Southbank welcomes you into the popular Burton's Mill development at Stalham Staithe, a quiet residential area just a short walk away from the sparkling River Ant.

Entry is gained via a quaint front patio which offers a lovely spot to enjoy your morning coffee on a summer's morning, whilst a rear enclosed garden can be used for a spot of alfresco dining.

The ground floor houses a spacious kitchen/diner with a fantastic choice of contemporary amenities to cook up your meals, whilst the dining table awaits for evening dinner parties and nights of board games over a bottle of wine.

Continuing to impress is a homely sitting room, a sociable space to gather with your loved ones for a family film night in front of the Smart TV as you cuddle up on one of the plush sofas.

Completing this floor is a handy cloakroom, whilst the family bathroom rests upstairs, featuring a sumptuous bath for an evening of bubbles, as well as a refreshing overhead shower.

Drift off to a night's refreshing embrace in one of the charming bedrooms, comprising a double, a bunk room and a king-size which benefits from an en-suite walk-in shower room and a lovely Juliette balcony with views of the surrounding town and far-reaching river.

Take a leisurely stroll and venture into the local town of Stalham, home to a plethora of shops and supermarkets where you can stock up on supplies, as well as a rich choice of dining, pubs, and takeaways when you fancy a night away from the kitchen.

Other local attractions include the East Ruston Old Vicarage Garden, Radar Museum, the Museum of the Broads, and a beautiful marina where you can hire a canoe from the exciting boat yard and journey along the glistening River Art.

Spend a day in the tranquil seaside village of Waxham, relaxing on the sandy front of Waxham Beach, or venture over to Cromer to find another glorious beach, a golf course, and the Amazona Zoo.

Discover local history at a host of fascinating attractions such as Hoveton Hall which dates back to the 9th century, or find adventure at Hickling Broad and Marshes with unique wildlife, boat tours and waterside trails.

More fun awaits at Wroxham Barns, BeWILDerwood Norfolk theme park, and at Great Yarmouth seaside resort further afield.

With so much of the Norfolk Broads and coastline to explore, Southbank is the ideal base for a relaxing escape.

About the location


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.
