Amanda is a lovely host and the boathouse has been decorated beautifully. A lovely relaxed weekend break, with plenty to do in Norwich. However if you just wanted to get away from it all, what a better way than waking up to views of the river on your own private patio - fantastic. Amanda also goes out of her way by giving you helpful advice and by stocking the fridge before your arrival. Would definetly recomend 10/10

Such an amazing place! The attention to detail made our stay feel luxurious. We were greeted with bacon, eggs, wine, bread and extra treats! Such a lovely touch. Can't recommend highly enough.

“Fantastic ”
Reviewed 18 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Arrived at the boathouse and was met by Amanda, a nicer person you could not meet and the boathouse was everything and more we hoped for.
The welcome pack was amazing including a bottle of our favourite wine chilling in the fridge. The weather was very kind to us and sat out watching the birds and boats go by every night.
Nice pubs and restaurants nearby, Amanda gives great advice where to go for food and places to visit, she checked with us throughout our stay to make sure everything was ok, which of course it was.
Highly recommend staying here, easy to get to Norwich city centre and easy to get to the ring road to venture further afield, must be the best accommodation we have stayed in.

Before arrival at this little cottage I and my husband hoped that we'd have done a good choice for 1 day home away. It was for my 40th birthday. According to TripAdvisor reviews it seemed a perfect place to stay. But as you know you can't count on all internet review, always a little bit doubt. Then you know what happened? When I just entered in this little magical cottage I fell in love with this petite forever!!! The house is a fabulous gem by itself and we are totally satisfied with every amenities and decorates Amanda has done with classy and luxury tastes. A front garden with a peaceful river stream taking away slowly swans and wild birds floating on. At midnight we were sitting on garden watching stars next to a swan, can you imagine that? And was so touching all Amanda's generous care!! Absolutely agree with a previous review that Amanda's awesome house deserves to be fully booking. Thank you again Amanda and hope see you one day again.

PS : I confess this is my first review throughout all booking site like airbnb,booking.com,TripAdvisor etc.

“WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW”
Reviewed 5 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016


This is my first review on TripAdvisor because I just have to let people know what a brilliant little find the boat house really is.

Amanda goes out of her way to help and to make sure you have everything along with feeling comfortable.

The wife was so pleased to find her favourite bottle of wine in the fridge, which she didn't know about! Followed a good stock of coffee, tea, and butter, bacon, eggs and some nice bread.

The weather wasn't on our side to sit outside in the evening but it never was going to be in November - but it would be lovely in the hight of summer.

However it is nice and warm inside so even worth a winter visit for sure!

Well done Amanda with you little gem and all the hard work you have put in, you deserve to be fully booked throughout 2017,

Thank you.
