Kingfisher Chalet is a delightful, peaceful place for a holiday or a short break...and the beauty of it is is that it's still in Norwich on the River Yare but you feel as though you are away from the noise and bustle of the city. The chalet is situated next to a boatyard and it's great just to sit on... more

Kingfisher Chalet is situated in a good position beside the waters edge, although not for young children. The road down to it is off the beaten track and very rough, especially after a lot of rain as much of the surface had been 'redistributed'! It does involve crossing a fast railway line to enter or leave the property so care... more

Management response:

A TV signal booster has been fitted, and WIFI is exceptionally good, for Iplayer. The chalet is fitted out with high quality kitchen & dining goods, and hence Dartington glasses are fine, but not cheap. I cannot guarantee that you can catch big fish, but that you will see much beautiful wildlife, kingfishers & even if your'e lucky otters. more

We stayed at Kingfisher Chalet when visiting family, it's a lovely location and the chalet was perfect for our needs. Stephen couldn't have been more helpful and we also rented a boat from the boat yard next door which was great fun. Lots of great local pubs and restaurants and a sainsbury's within a mile. We'll definitely return more
