The East Anglia region

The Norfolk Broads is a network of inland water ways. It attracts many visitors wishing to enjoy the scenery, wildlife (especially birds), watersports, beaches, cycling (it's quite flat!) and charm of the area.

Horning

Horning is situated on the River Bure in the heart of the Norfolk Broads about 10 miles from Norwich and 3 miles from Wroxham. The family friendly village provides good local amenities including 3 riverside pubs (all serving food), restaurants, Chinese takeaway, tea room, deli, butcher, newsagent/grocery store, post office, hair & beauty salon, swimming pool and fishing tackle/bait shop. Fine sandy beaches are a 20 minute drive away.

The property has its own mooring and there is a slip way nearby for Trailer Sailors. If you bring your own boat, or

you hire one locally, there is so much to discover and explore. For peace and tranquility or uninterrupted sailing and fishing, head for the Black Horse Broad or Ranworth Broad. If you want to go with the flow head up river to popular destinations such as Wroxham (1 hour cruising) or Potter Heigham with it’s famous bridge (1½ hour cruising). Throughout the year there are many sailing events from Horning including the challenging annual Three Rivers Yacht Race.

"Great Holiday Cottage"

We have just come back from a lovely weeks holiday at this cottage. The cottage it's self is well thought out and had everything we needed for our group of 8 adults and 2 children. The access road is only woodchip but didn't really cause us any problems even after some rain the neighbours next door were lovely and always happy to stop and chat. I found Riverside Rentals a pleasure to deal with and am very glad I've found them as they have lots of beautiful places to stay at around the broads thank you for a wonderful holiday and we hope to be back soon.

Thank you for your kind review about our company and the property. We hope to see you again very soon.

"poor access"

the house was beautiful and on the river, however be aware (confirmed by talking to people who live there) the road made of wood chip as its on a marsh is unsuitable for cars on occasions as we found on our visit. Because of rain the cars had to be left at the entrance to the private road. the distance is about a 7 to 10 minute walk and at night unlit. As my wife is disabled and having my grandson with us walking out and in was difficult. As stated on the advert for the property no Supermarket deliverys are allowed. Walking in all the shopping during the week was horrendous. All the locals living down the track seem to have 4x4 vehicles bar a few which also made the track worse when even someone had filled the boggy areas in. Richard the key holder was helpful with his 4x4 but became aggresive when the land owner complained that one of my sons was speeding in his vehicle (3MPH restriction) when we challenged that, also one of my family is a serving police officer, i'm a retired police officer, i thought he could have handled the situation more tactifully as i was the customer. Richard then suggested he would refuse enrty to the prpoerty because of our robust attitude, i was for leaving but because of children and the family we entered the property. Over all the week was spoilt the ladies could not walk out in long dresses and high heals for my 60th dinner party, finally we were offered another house which did nor suit my requirements i needed the accomadation description of Bureville thats why i rented the place. You could be lucky through the summer if dry to get your cars down the wood chip track but be aware its a regular problem not my words the people who live there, this is not explained fully on the adverts.

Thank you for your response and we are glad that the house itself was to your liking. We do accept that the road was very bad in places which made it unusable for many cars. This was due to the fact that we had just had the wettest April on record and coupled with high spring tides the water levels on the marsh where at an unprecedented high and had a serious effect on the road.

We have been letting this house for 3 years now and it is the first time this has ever happened and I would be fairly certain that so long we do not encounter the same freak weather conditions it wouldn't happen again.

The house is .2 mile down a wood chip road and as such has a speed limit of 3mph and a weight limit of 1.5tonnes to try and ensure the longevity of the surface, the weight limit is also the reason supermarkets deliveries have to be made at the top of the road as in the past they have caused to much damage.

Due to the state of the road at the time of your holiday, I phoned you on the morning of your arrival to make you aware that the road was unusable and if you were to stay there you would have to make the short walk down to the house. The alternatives I offered was to stay an another house that sleeps 10 people or have a full refund. You refused these options and decided to stay at Bureville. On arrival 3 of the 4 cars you came with ignored my request not to use the road and drove to the property anyway. When I arrived with you, two of the drivers told you to bring your car down "but go quickly because you don't feel the bumps as much". I told you only a maximum of 3 cars were allowed down there anyway but you became quite insistent that you wanted to bring yours down making it a total of 4. The owner of the road then called me away to explain that when he asked 2 of the drivers why they were down there and why they were speeding they laughed and swore at him. When I came back to your group to try and resolve the situation before I had a chance to say anything one of the drivers made very disparaging remarks about the road owner and became aggressive and used foul language. I tried to explain that we had asked you not to use the road for good reason, when you all became very agitated and you personally threatened to sue the road owner and me. Once again I offered you alternative accommodation which you refused, at this point due to the unnecessary ill feeling you had towards me and the road owner and due to the aggressive nature of the entire group I felt it necessary to refuse you entry to the house. I did offer a full refund which I did not have to do. Once you had time to calm down I then allowed you entry to the property.

You mention that you were unable to use the road and this spoilt your holiday, but 3 of the 4 cars used the road all week allowing you to come and go as you pleased. This was all done against our express wishes.

Bureville has always been an extremely popular property and many people return year in year out. I wholeheartedly agree the road was in a bad way and for that I apologise profusely. I can control most things to ensure our customers have a memorable holiday but acts of God are out of my control. However, I can assure everyone that this is freak incident, the like of which I have never seen.
