  • “Lovely comfortable accommodation, very well appointed.”

    Would highly recommend. The Waiting Room is in a great location to visit the broads and to see the steam trains from the garden!

About the property

This cosy annexe is based in the delightful riverside village of Coltishall and is backed onto the Bure Valley Railway line.

Perfectly located for exploring the superb Norfolk Broads and the East Coast of Norfolk, this annexe offers a lovely getaway for a couple or family looking to escape to the country.

Look forward to unwinding in the sitting room after a day of rambling the Norfolk outdoors, with a sumptuous corner sofa to rest on, plus an electric fire and a Smart TV for all your entertainment options.

The kitchen is equipped with all you could need for a self-catered stay, including the all-important dishwasher and washing machine.

The bedrooms have been furnished in a refreshing colour tone and include a double and twin bedded, served by a shower room where you can enjoy a refreshing shower to start your day.

Head outside and relax in the enclosed patio area while taking in the idyllic surroundings, with only the occasional passing train to disturb the peace and quiet, this is a narrow guage stream railway that only runs through the day.

Coltishall is a small village but offers the essential amenities including a number of good pubs serving food, a village shop, a butcher’s and petrol station.

Avid walkers can take advantage of the network of varied footpaths and walks in Horstead and the nearby Norfolk Broads, home to the 61 mile Weaver’s Way footpath which passes through a diverse landscape of woodland, mixed farmland and disused railway lines.

Visit the city of Norwich for all your shopping delights, along with a series of museums, parks, galleries and much more to stay occupied.

A delightful annexe to be enjoyed, any-time-of-year.

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.
