“Spacious house in a perfect location”
Reviewed 1 March 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We recently stayed here with a group of friends , 9 adults in total. The house is very spacious and comfortably accommodates a party of this size . There is plenty of space in the kitchen and lounge to eat together and the kitchen is well stocked with crockery, cutlery etc. The lounge has ample comfortable seating and is in excellent decorative order.
The bedrooms have plenty of storage space with comfortable beds.
It is centrally located in Wroxham and the train station is only a 15 min walk were you can take the train to Norwich which is well worth a visit.
We hired a boat from the local boat yard and spent a great day on the broads stopping at the Malsters Arms at Ranworth for lunch.
This is a fantastic property and was excellent value , looking forward to returning in the future.

“Big, Very Comfortable and in a Great Location”
Reviewed 16 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

The cottage is huge. It easily accommodated 9 adults with literally rooms to spare. It has a large well fitted kitchen with a large table and another large table in the living dining area with leather chairs to accommodate the whole group.

The location of the cottage would be hard to beat. The bridge at the centre of Wroxham/Hoveton is 5 minutes walk from the cottage so all the restaurants and take aways are within easy reach as are boat trips and boat hire. The station is less than 10 minutes walk for a 15 minute train journey to Norwich or from the same location you can take a trip on the Bure Valley narrow gauge railway.

We have just spent a fabulous weekend, this holiday let was ideal for our large party and it was very close to the main town of Wroxham. It is an ideal location if you are looking to venture on the Norfolk Broads or use as a base to see the heart of Norfolk

“Amazing property right on the broads”
Reviewed 23 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

I booked this cottage for a large group of friends for the weekend and it did not disappoint. It is extremely spacious and well looked after.

The house is clean, well furnished and has everything you need for a break in Wroxham.

It's a short walk to the shops which has everything you need and the house is situated right on the broads so great if you want to go out on a boat for the day.

The beds are comfy and there are plenty of places to sit and relax. I would recommend this cottage and will be booking again soon.

“Superb Weekend on the Broads”
Reviewed 23 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Our first impression of Waterside Retreat is the fantastic position it is in, backing onto the river in a quiet road, yet a short walk from the little town which has everything you could possibly need.
The house was that it was absolutely spotless and a bit like a tardis with large hall, kitchen and lounge and even an annexe downstairs with bedrooms and a bathroom that were tucked away.
The kitchen had and living areas were spacious and happily accommodated 11 adults all weekend without feeling cramped.It has to be said that the kitchen had every mod con and a full range of tableware ...a real home from home.
The bedrooms were well proportioned with plenty of drawers and cupboards and we were lucky enough to stay in the Master bedroom which had the most stunning views and a well appointed shower room with the most fantastic shower cubicle.
Highly recommended
