“Excellent festive break”
Reviewed 3 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Lovely compact cottage set on the bank of the river Thurne. Christmas lights twinkling were a lovely welcome to the cottage after that long trudge down the dark path. Apart from that little downside the whole break was glorious. This is an ideal location for chilling and visiting a variety of places. Norwich and yarmouth are both easily accessible. We visited the seal colony by parking at Winterton and walking along the beach toward Horsey Gap. Ideal getaway for two.

“Lovely Little Cottage”
Reviewed 11 August 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Had everything we needed and much more. Fishing was good all be it a little busy this side of the bridge. Cottage was comfortable, although the beds for us were a bit too soft. We had great weather, so took advantage of the washing machine! The only downside for me for this cottage (other than walking all our stuff down to it on a hot summers day) was the weeping willow tree, its too big for this plot which makes you loose a lot of sunshine during the day, plus if its windy the leaves hit you in the face and go all inside the cottage! But other than that it was a nice place to stay for 2 weeks.

Moon River was clean and well furnished, bedding good quality. Lovely to see boats going by.Was able to bring our dogs .
On down side ,walk to cottage with luggage was a bit of a pain, and you need a torch at night if you go out., .Electric expensive.

We had a fantastic week in this cottage. It was clean and very comfortable. We booked through Riverside Rentals and they handled the booking professionally. We hired the little fishermans boat moored at the cottage and that made our stay even better as we could take little trips around the area via boat. Or simply relax and watch the world float by. We certainly will return if the opportunity arises.
