Holly Lodge - Bramerton
Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
This beautiful waterfront detached holiday cottage benefits from a location close to Bramerton Common, situated in a secluded position, with full river views, private mooring and fishing rights alongside the River Yare.
Whilst you can just relax and watch the world go by along the river, or fish from your own private quay heading, a motor launch can be hired locally to explore the expanse of Norfolk Broad Waterways, plentiful with wildlife and ample opportunity to visit the many riverside inns.

Shop 2 miles and very the popular riverside gastro pub - The Water Edge just minutes walk along the river bank.

Bramerton Riverside Walks
There are short and long walks and the route also links in with the Wherryman's Way, a long distance footpath along the river between Norwich and Great Yarmouth. Glacial deposits (rocks in the area known as Bramerton Pits, adjacent to Bramerton Common) gave the name Bramertonian stage to a period within the Pleistocene epoch showing shelly, sandy deposits indicating a mild climate. As a result of this local geology, at Bramerton you almost have the feeling of being on cliffs, though in fact you are on a wooded ridge, overlooking a sea of river and marshes.
What wildlife lives there?
Along the river you'll find lots of ducks, geese and other water birds. Look out for herons, the blue flash of a kingfisher, an owl hunting over the marshes, and for dragonflies and damselflies in the summer months. There are lovely sweet chestnut trees along one of the paths.
What else is there to see?
You can continue your walk to visit the RSPB's Surlingham Church Marsh Nature Reserve.
Norwich Cathedral - Discover the awe-inspiring Cathedral and its many treasures.
Be inspired by the scale and beauty of one of the most complete examples of Romanesque architecture in Europe and learn how the Cathedral survived riot, war, plague and fire to remain standing at the heart of Norwich today.
Looking for some treasures? There's a renowned collection of over 1,000 medieval roof boss carvings to see, along with numerous original Norman wall paintings, medieval graffiti and the famed 14th century Despenser.
