“Excellent 3 in 1 property in the gorgeous village of Horning”
Reviewed 17 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

person found this review helpful

The main house is amazing and has everything you need with a added bonus of the Boat House and The Pod so everyone had their own space to relax too. There is plenty of garden and water front, just be prepared to be photographed by the passing boats and it is so pretty. The road down to the property is interesting to say the least and I can understand why access is difficult when the weather is bad but it was dry so we had no problems at all. For us a day boat was a must, a quick 5 minute trip down the river to one of the 3 pubs or little shops in Horning would have been at least 30 minutes walk and when you are on The Broads, is there any better way to travel!

“Lovely holiday cottage”
Reviewed 17 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We rented the entire property for 9 of us and a variety of ages. After reading a few reviews we were a bit worried about driving down to the property especially after the rain but the road down was not as bad as expected and they were constantly working on it and adding more wood chips. We arrived earlier than we expected and the cleaners were just finishing off but they were lovely friendly people who had done a very good job of cleaning everywhere. The weather was amazing so we didn't have to leave the place much and enjoyed the many benefits of staying in the property and the boys all enjoyed fishing the river early in the morning and later at night when quiet or in the back dyke during the day. The people passing in the boats were always happy and waving, and we throughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back again.

“Good for fishing in the back dyke as we had to use because of the yachting regatta taking place on the river..”
Reviewed 10 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Not very pleased with the standard of cleanliness on arriving at the property.A thorough health and safety inspection would make this a very good place to stay but unfortunately we found it lacking in this way.Some members of our party have walking problems with medical issues and found that there are no hand rails to climb to the decking from the garden around all three sections of the property.The House ,The Pod and The Boathouse accommodation making it difficult to join other members in the garden and riverside.We were not told when we booked this property the year previously that the yachting regatta was to take place that week,as the men could only use the back dyke for their fishing (which is the reason we like a riverside accommodation)and not the river until the finish of the day's racing was over.Not so happy with this one as other property we have had in the past.Not even mentioning the rising prices ,which get higher and higher every year making it very difficult for the less well off ,to afford to have a holiday in this beautiful part of the country.

“a little portion of heaven”
Reviewed 18 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We travelled down the wonderful wood chip road towards Bureville, gently bobbing along as if we were already on water. What a great way to start the holiday, it made us chuckle every time we ventured out! Well what a gem of a place. Beautiful setting with a wonderful view from every window. we had rain but it didn't spoil it one bit. Bring your wellies for ease of slipping in and out of the garden. Neighbours were friendly as were the boaters who waved as they passed. lots of wonderful wildlife to view. Binoculars are a good idea. The Cottage, Pod and Boathouse apartment. are all beautifully furnished and there are easy to follow instructions for everything. Fully recommended, most relaxing time and did not want to leave!

Absolutely brilliant holiday, property fantastic. The privacy the boathouse and pod gave our younger party members really made their holiday. We had everything we could have wanted all properties lovely and clean and in excellent order. Will definitely holiday at Bureville again.

“Fantastic property”
Reviewed 1 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

This is our 2nd visit to Bureville with Riverside Rentals and we have booked for next year! It's a fantastic 3 part property in a great location. The house has every home comfort. Fishing was great. Caught pike and saw an Otter! There are 3 generations of us and something for all of us to enjoy. Can't wait to come back. Want to live here!
