    Booked for a hen weekend and were blown away with the size of the cottage, the photos just don’t do it justice! The five of us slept very comfortably and we had loads of room, even with everything we had managed to bring with us! We arrived late on Friday evening and were thrilled to discover that the heating had been switched on for us, as was the hot tub which was definitely one of the highlights. The location was perfect and made for a beautiful morning stroll through the village. The kitchen was well equipped and included a dishwasher. The bathroom was nice and clean as well. We also had WiFi which was handy as we did struggle to get signal on our mobiles. We had the most fantastic time and are already planning a return trip!

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.
