  • "Wow, wow ,wow!"

    What a lovely holiday we have just spent here, fantastic views even on the one damp day and the sunsets were a joy to see. The cottage was spotless and everything we needed or may have needed was there, even down to the owners providing us with their bbq and cooking utensils . All four of us and our elderly dog found the quiet location restful, but only a short car journey to local supermarkets etc and the dog friendly Queens Head pub serving excellent and very affordable food just over a 5 minute walk away. We would very highly recommend a stay here to anyone wishing to 'recharge their batteries ' and come away knowing money spent on staying here was well worth it.

  • "Cottage was beautiful and well supplied."

    The location is perfect with lovely walks right on the doorstep. The only thing which would have been helpful for us, would have been if a high chair was available.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, beautiful views and very comfortable property."

    We arrived in the dark and so I didn't see the side step leading to the front door and dropped off it with a jolt, a bit more lighting may be helpful. The play area was fab for my 2 year old Grand-daughter and gorgeous walks are right on the doorstep.

  • "From the pictures we saw when booking it was clear that Waveney View offered everything we were looking for and we certainly were not disappointed."

    On arrival it even managed to exceed our expectations, and how aptly the cottage was named! Inside the living and kitchen areas were the perfect combination of comfort and functionality, plenty of light and space, and the front bedrooms were equally comfortable and shared the same amazing view, whilst the Bathroom was light and bright and had a really good shower! The description “ fully equipped” was totally accurate! Outside we enjoyed a large patio area immediately infront of the Cottage, reserved for our personal use, and the views of and sounds from the numerous varieties of birdlife in their environment, as well as the interest created by the passing river traffic - an ever changing vista! The highlight was of course the view, glorious sunrises and sunsets, of course not every day but even on less sunny days it was amazing how the sun managed to put in an appearance at some time. The location of Waveney View was ideal, a few minutes walk to access the Angles Way, a riverside path running along the bank immediately in front of the cottage, in both directions, and easy access to a network of footpaths locally and those leading to and around the Roman Fort at Burgh Castle. So why do we give this property such a high rating? The Three Ps : Privacy, Position & Possibilities! Located at the end of a lane with private access, conveniently positioned to access local facilities by car - local supermarket 10 minutes, the extensive Beach at Gorlesto-on-sea 15 minutes, and finally numerous possibilities of easy access to Norfolk and Suffolk’s coastal attractions : Cromer to the North and Southwold to the South around an hour’s easy drive, and all that lies in between! The property was spotlessly clean and the owners, Lorraine & Paul, who live in the main house, provided useful information on local places of interest and were fully respectful of our privacy and yet easy to approach as and when required. Out thanks to them for the holiday opportunity that we very much enjoyed. Dont’t forget your Camera!
