    “A beautiful tranquil location.”

    Enjoyed the fishing. Sandy beaches a short drive to coast. The cottage was clean with all the usual kitchen essentials. Comfortable beds. No internet or networking for us, hooray. A box with wine, biscuits, tea bags, coffee, sugar and milk.

The property

Perfect for a family getaway, this cottage comes within striking distance of the wonderful coastline, the Norfolk Broads and the city of Norwich.

It offers something to suit all ages and tastes including recreational fishing in the on-site lake and the nearby Weavers Way for the walkers.

Swallowtail comes with two well-presented bedrooms, comprising of double bedroom and a twin bedroom, offering views of the lake and countryside to wake up to each morning.

Look forward to spending relaxing evenings within the brightly decorated, open-plan living room, with all the necessities for an enjoyable break.

The designated chef will be able to rustle up a meal within the amply equipped kitchen or al fresco with the BBQ on the patio.

As the evening draws to a close, curl up on the plush L-shape sofa to enjoy some reading or watch the multi channel Freeview TV.

Enjoy your breakfast or morning coffee on the patio whilst taking in the lake views or treat yourself to a glass of fizz while the sun sets over the breath-taking scenery.

A short stroll will bring you to the local pub, The Butchers Arms, which is a welcome spot for a special treat one evening.

Alternatively, venture to the towns of Stalham or Wroxham, where you will find a selection of shops, pubs and eateries as well as marinas with day boat hire for an expedition on the Broads.

During the summer months, head out to the coast where you will be able to spend the day soaking up the sun at the sandy beaches of Mundesley, Walcott, Happisburgh, Winterton and Sea Palling.

Further afield, is the city of Norwich, with its famous market, bars and restaurants and of course its landmark Cathedral.
