  • "What a property!"

    Loads of space, peaceful, just absolutely wonderful. Everything you could possibly need. We stayed over Christmas and New Year and the place was decorated festively. Barbara, the owner, was very helpful and offered help if we should need it but everything was just right! The added bonus was the second sitting room which my sister and I nicknamed the 'man cave' as we sent our husbands in there to watch their shows - bliss! Couldn't fault any of it. Highly recommend this property! *****

    Thank you for your beautiful feedback I’m very happy you enjoyed your stay. Best wishes Barbara Property Owner

    I would highly recommend this property for a holiday even a stay vacation, even living 15 minutes away from it was a beautiful holiday location.

  • "We had a lovely week at Birch Cottage, it was clean and very spacious for the 3 of us plus dog."

    Very private garden which we would have loved to have made more use of if the weather was better. We did have a power cut one evening, fortunately after we had cooked dinner!, the owners informed us when it was likely to be resolved and it was within the time frame so not too much of a problem. It was in a great location and easy to get to places, supermarkets etc close by and a small co-op within walking distance.

    Thank you Adam Best wishes to you and your family Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely stay but feel the cottage has an identity crisis and is not sure about the rooms."

    We didn’t need two lunges and a cinema room so most of the time sat in one lounge. Couldn’t understand all the cupboard space in the other lounge and kitchen. Lots of empty cupboards for a holiday let. A lot of the kitchen ware and glasses were dirty and needed up washing things before we used it. We also found some kitchen ware missing like a colander to wash salad and vegetables. Outside area was lovely. Well stocked garden which the dogs loved. We found the cottage well situated for our travels around Norfolk. Maybe warn people about the narrow tracks to get to the cottage.

  • "Amazing property, so much so we didn't want to leave."

    The extra sitting room was also a hit with our teenager... Kitchen had all amenities you need. Ice creams in the freezer also went down well! The property was so spacious.. bigger than in the photos.. and we all slept well and the addition of the stars were a lovely touch! Extra pillows were available if needed. The cot was made on arrival and my youngest didn't get us up at the crack of dawn! The best property we have stayed in! Barbara visited when we were arrived to check everything was OK which was nice as normally you don't see the owner, and was able to give us some recommendations. Bewilderwood is not far if you have children and Great Yarmouth is also not far, which we loved Macdonald's is down the road which is a winner, especially if you have a child with ASD! The local Chinese is also a lovely takeaway. Cinema room was fantastic and a nice way to unwind after a busy day. Would definitely recommend. We try to always opt for bungalows especially with small children and this didn't disappoint.

  • "A wonderful holiday home."

    We throughly enjoyed our stay as a family of 6 (Multi generational). Everything was easily accessible and spotlessly clean. A real luxury stay, both inside and outside of the home. Beautiful secret garden to enjoy - so tranquil - with gorgeous outside entertaining space. This property is 5 star ( and I am picky) - everything you could wish for and more - with a cinema room as an addition - annexe in the garden. A great base for exploring Wroxham and a day on the boat. Thank you Barbara for making our stay such a happy one with memories made. This is a real Gem!

    It’s the best place we have ever stayed. No expence spared on the facilities. Beautiful comfy sofa. Fabulous kitchen and laundry room. Massive fridge and freezer. Very very comfortable beds. Barbara the lady who own the cottage. Could not do enough for us. She is lovely. It’s set back away from the road with 2 super parking spaces. So we felt very safe and knew our car was safe too. Thankyou for a fabulous stay. We will be back and we will be recommending it to our friends. But then maybe not they may want to go when we do xx

    Is totally as described. Lots of space, very private and great asset in the cinema room. Would highly recommend. Barbara is a great host and is always there for issues. She also listens to comments from previous visitors and is constantly working on suggestions. We had a fabulous holiday, the cottage gives you easy access to the Broads, the coast and the city of Norwich. We will be returning.

  • "Very nice property, very clean with some great features."

    Owner’s communications was excellent with the offer of help on tap if we needed it. Property isn’t easy to find or park at (if you have large vehicles take note). On the plus side it feels very secluded and cosy. The showers are amazing as is the cinema room. Two of the great features. Well located for the broads and days at the beach not too far a drive. Local curry house the bay leaf serves very good food and amazing service. Have recommended to the owner that additional utensils be provided as the property is lacking in this regard - there aren’t many improvements that could be made! Stay here and you won’t be disappointed. We would happily stay again.

    Thank you John I have now purchased extra kitchen utensils. Best wishes to you and your family. Barbara Property Owner

    The garden was completely enclosed so our dogs could roam around freely Two separate sitting rooms one attached to the kitchen and the other just as big we were spoilt for choice and the cinema room what a fantastic room to catch up on some films our daughter brought her switch so could play on it via the massive cinema screen Thankyou Barbara for being a wonderful host and for the polish doughnuts you brought us they were fantastic, we will be back next year Dziękuję

    A very lovely dog friendly cottage which was clean, comfortable, warm and well equipped. The shower was wonderful … very powerful! The garden was secure and well kept with garden furniture and a bbq which would be great in the warmer months. The owner popped round to say hello and make sure everything was ok and the welcome goodies were a nice touch too. The village has plenty of amenities within walking distance, including a dog friendly pub which served great food, and two small, but well stocked supermarkets. Loved our stay and will return!

The property

Birch Cottage is tucked away in the village of Brundall in the Norfolk Broads.

With a charming interior, featuring warm colours, an open-plan living space with a woodburning stove and a cinema room, this single-storey cottage is idyllic for friends and family alike.

Leave your vehicle in an off-road parking space before entering your holiday home into the open-plan living area, hosting a large corner sofa in front of a Smart TV.

The contemporary kitchen area is the perfect place to prepare home-cooked meals whilst the utility has an electric oven, washing machine and dishwasher.

Dine together at the table and let the outside in by opening the patio doors, which lead to the lovely, enclosed garden with a gazebo and furniture to unwind on.

As the evening cools, retire inside to the cinema room; here you can unwind on the sofa bed, tuck into some treats, and make use of the projector and Blue Ray DVD Player.

There is also a second-sitting room with a Smart TV for those seeking the quiet before choosing between three double bedrooms, two of them serviced by en-suite shower rooms.

Begin your day with a soothing soak in the bathroom or wash in the shower before heading out on foot to explore your surroundings.

There are plenty of things to see and do in Brundall, including RSPB Strumpshaw Fen and Mid-Yare National Nature Reserve.

After a day exploring, you can enjoy a delicious meal or a refreshing drink in one of the village's restaurants and bars, such as East Hills Café Bistro.
