  • "Our stay 30/10/21 to 6/11/21 The house was very clean with a lovely good sized garden which was good for our dog as well as us."

    The owner left essentials (tea, coffee, bread, butter, eggs, milk, biscuits etc) so we didn’t have to rush out for anything. He also supplied essentials for washing dishes etc. Overall our stay at the house was a good experience and I highly recommend the property to others. Glenn

    He also left tea, coffee, bread, eggs, milk, apple juice, tomatoes and strawberries which was unexpected but, most welcome - thank you again, Mark. The property was extremely clean and offered all the amenities needed for our stay so what else can you say.

  • "Lovely cottage in an excellent location, giving easy access (sometimes just by walking from the door) to the Broads as well as the coast just a short drive away."

    The cottage was very well equipped, very comfortable, with everything in excellent working order. The welcome provisions were first class. One of the reasons we chose this cottage was because the garden was enclosed and secure. We weren't disappointed. It was very safe to let our small dog out, to enjoy the garden. Finally, speaking of the garden. It was beautifully maintained. An added bonus. Watching the birds on the feeder was a pleasure. Thank you very much. We would definitely come here again if we return to Norfolk.

    So it's a get away from the busy ratrace of normal life. The birds, which come and feed on the bird feeder are so entertaining too! The house itself has everything you need a real home from home!

  • "Lovely little house, very comfortable, well equipped and spotlessly clean."

    I don't think the photos do it justice which is why I've said it exceeded expectations. The location was wonderful, so rural and quiet. Loved having views from my bed over looking fields. Right within the Broads and a good base for exploring the area. We did lots of walks straight from the house which were beautiful. Also easy access to the sea. The enclosed garden was great for our rather nervous lurcher. So quiet and a great fence! Village shop and butcher both useful.

  • "Owner met us on arrival and had provided basic provisions which was helpful."

    Property was well furnished and spacious on a quiet road with ample driveway parking. It has a lovely enclosed garden which was great for our dog (dog bowls & treats also provided) This is a great base for both coast and broads and has every home comfort as on the last day of our holiday we experienced storm Alex. Our power went off at 10pm on the Friday evening and was still not on again as we left to go home on the Saturday morning. We did inform the owner. The only negative I would have is that the owner did not contact us to check that we were alright during the power loss. He had provided one small torch. We would definitely return to this property.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at 27 Whitegates."

    On arrival we were overwhelmed by the generosity of the host, with supplies of milk, bread, fruit and many other basic essentials. The house was spotlessly clean and tidy. We would certainly look at making a return at some point in the future. I would definitely recommend this holiday home - I give it five stars!

The property

Positioned in a quiet, no through road, surrounded by beautiful Norfolk countryside and with views from every window upstairs, is this lovely, semi-detached holiday home.

It is ideal for families, friends and couples looking to explore the Norfolk Broads and all the attractions it has to offer.

Entrance is gained from the front of the property and into a tiled porchway, where you can store coats and walking boots.

The living/dining room boasts views across green fields as you eat at the dining table, and sumptuous armchairs with a country feel.

From here you can access the galley-style kitchen, with sufficient fixtures allowing you to enjoy a comfortable break away from home.

A cloakroom completes the ground floor, making good use of the space, with a small hand basin integrated on top of the WC.

Climb the plush carpet to the first floor, where you will find two double bedrooms and a bathroom.

The front bedroom is spacious with ample storage, bedside cabinets and views over a patchwork of rolling, walking country.

The second bedroom allows you to wake up to the same endless views, as you enjoy your morning cup of tea from the warmth of your bed.

Fitted units not only add a sleek finish to the room but are a great way of saving space.

The bathroom is bright and clean, occupying a shower over the bath.

To the outside you have the choice of seating area to the front and rear for alfresco dining and the garden is fully enclosed for children and dogs to play safely.

Norwich is a mere 40 minutes from here, and there are no end of local attractions within a 20-mile radius.

The National Trust's Horsey Mill is an iconic landmark, which can be explored on foot, following a wildlife rich trail.

Brograve Mill is in the parish of Sea Palling, a Grade II listed building constructed of red brick.

Both are around 9 miles from the property and well worth a visit.

How Hill Nature Reserve offers abundant walks, a museum of a marshman life in Toad Hole Cottage, and beautiful scenery.

About the location


Great Yarmouth 13.5 miles.

Situated in the heart of the beautiful Norfolk Broads is the attractive rural Norfolk village of Ludham. Surrounded on 3 sides by the rivers Ant, Bure and Thurne and its own small broad, Womack Water with its array of moored boats and small shops, it is a lovely, picturesque place to holiday. At the centre of the village is the crossroads, near to the beautiful thatched church of St Catherine’s and several pretty thatched cottages, the local pub, village store, butcher’s and tea rooms. To the north west of the village is How Hill Nature Reserve with nature trails and a museum of a marshman life in Toad Hole Cottage. The village offers a good network of footpaths with plenty of wildlife to see. In summer the beach at Sea Palling is a hub of activity with jet skiiers and the sand dunes of Winterton-on-Sea offer secluded sun traps perfect for relaxing. Spend a day exploring the broads in one of the sailboats and river cruisers which can be hire from Hunters Yard in Ludham. The traditional seaside town of Great Yarmouth is just a short drive away and offers plenty of attractions and family fun. The award-winning attraction Bewilderwood can be found just outside Wroxham, which is a must visit for children and adults, with tree houses, wires, jungle bridges and boat rides. A fantastic family holiday destination at any time of the year.
