About the home
This recently refurbished, well-maintained cottage provides you with everything you need for a little R & R. Unwind in the restful living room, entertain in the kitchen/dining room, sleep-in in one of the 5 bedrooms, chill with your favourite book in the garden, or just watch the world go by from the sunroom upstairs. Downstairs has been made wheelchair-friendly including a downstairs bedroom with en suite.
The 150-year old house still retains an original flint wall, lending character to the partly beamed home. The finishes are clean and modern and there is more than enough space to house 10 guests comfortably.
There is dedicated parking for 3 vehicles. Local shops and the 3 village pubs are within walking distance, and the pubs all serve excellent food. Within a short drive are beaches, Pettitts Animal Adventure Park (great for kids) and the RSPB Reserve at Strumpshaw Fen, though you can just as easily watch the local wildlife on the River Yare from the prime location of the upper sunroom at Briars.

The East Anglia / Norfolk region
Reedham was originally a Roman settlement and King Edmund of East Anglia is said to have lived in the village. The historic city of Norwich, which is only a short drive away, has plenty to offer with its unique antique areas, medieval castles and architectural gems such as the Norwich Cathedral. The cottage also has many adventure and wildlife parks nearby, proving a hit with the kids, not to mention the funfairs and seaside attractions at Great Yarmouth close by.
North Norfolk is within easy driving distance too and there, you can enjoy the quiet, tranquil and sandy beaches. The area is ideal for exploring and it provides easy access to wonderful scenery and beaches. The extensive Norfolk Broads are at your disposal including Hickling, Wroxham and Oulton Broads. There are plenty of Broad cruises that you can join, or if you’re feeling adventurous, you can hire your own boat!
The village pubs offer excellent fare and are very reasonably priced. However, having the wonderful kitchen facilities at the cottage means that you can easily prepare your own meals. There is excellent fresh produce that can be sourced from local farm shops, from very free-range eggs to seasonal fruit and vegetables.
The Reedham area
Reedham is a relaxing, riverfront village in Norfolk and has a wide range of activities to suit all ages and budgets.
For nature lovers, the area is ideal. Not only for walks and bird watching (a local guide is available), but there are many animal sanctuaries and petting zoos in the vicinity. The RSPB reserve at Strumpshaw Fen is only 7 miles away, along with Pettitts Animal Adventure Park.
Boats and bicycles are available for hire locally, and the Reedham chain ferry over the river is suitable for both vehicles and pedestrians.

This house is a home from home - really comfortable and practical, whilst being finished/furnished to a high standard. A lovely place to be able to hang out without going too far, if that's what you fancy. The kids loved being able to walk from the house along the water to feed the ducks & visit the cafe. And the local pub did a decent meal. Lots to do in the local area too. We hope to return soon!
