  • "First class cottage in every respect."

    Can recommend for a quality holiday break.

  • "Very friendly host and lovely area to stay in Norfolk."

    Loved the fresh flowers in the kitchen! Nice touch.

  • "This cottage was in a beautiful, idyllic and tranquil setting, away from the world."

    Birdsong and the occasional rumble of trains on the Bure Valley railway- a 5 minute walk away up a narrow lane -was all we heard. We spent our holiday cycling down traffic free country lanes and walking along the path beside the train. Moonlight cottage is centrally situated for exploring Norfolk although it was too hot for us to do that. We walked to the river Bure and enjoyed pub lunches nearby. Would highly recommend hiring a day boat to see the nearby Broads. The cottage itself was well equipped for a self catering holiday, and spotlessly clean. We wouldn’t hesitate to return.

    The owner, Dave, lives very near the cottage and is delightful and very helpful. A pleasant stay.

  • "The heating system in the cottage was difficult - on the controller, there was a switch that had been labelled on/off."

    It never seemed to do anything, so we just had to rely on the pre-set programme. Fortunately, most of the time there was no problem as the weather wasn't too bad, but if we'd been there at a colder time, it could have been difficult. Having said that, the owner was easily contactable and I'm sure would have helped us out if necessary. The setting was beautiful with local walking and convenient for the Norfolk Broads.

    Owners and personal touches are fab. Fantastic stay. Only criticism would be double sofa pull out bed was very uncomfortable and small but fine for our 4yr old. Picture perfect little place.

  • "We enjoyed our stay at the lovely Moonlight Cottage which is ideal for 2 persons although there is a bed settee in the lounge for occasional use."

    The location is really peaceful for relaxing there and there are many places to visit in the area .The only drawback for us was the Friday booking when we found the traffic on the A1 horrendous in both directions and took much longer than expected..

  • "Moonlight Cottage was one of the better cottages we have stayed in, it is very quiet and was well equipped."

    The owner Dave was very helpful and on hand if needed and the first to contact us regarding keys rather than the other way round. When we visit again we will be back. The cottage was very clean which is something that is really important to me. It was one of the few places we have been that was better than the brochure.

  • "Moonlight Cottage was very clean and the facilities were really good."

    The little extras were nice as we arrived late so no shops open. The furniture in the living room is dated but usable. There is parking which is tight but manageable. We didn't go to any local pubs or shops so we can't comment on them but we did go to Wroxham Barns, Bure Valley Railway and Great Yarmouth which we thoroughly enjoyed with our 6 year old. Overall we really enjoyed our stay, thank you

  • "The owner of the property was absolutely delightful and very helpful and friendly."

    We also felt the cottage was a home from home and had everything we needed and could want. I have been to rented cottages before where there have been things broken, missing and if you are cooking instead of going out, the kitchen was unsuitable for cooking anything further than beans on toast! Not so with this property, they'd thought of everything and the homely, welcoming touches like milk and tea / coffee were very gratefully received after a long M25 on a Friday night journey! We were very sorry to leave.

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.
