This one bedroom self catering holiday cottage is absolutely ideal for a couple seeking a romantic and tranquil break and is set in an enviable position on the banks of the River Bure very near the centre of Wroxham, Norfolk, known as the Capital of the Norfolk Broads.

Within easy walking distance, 5 minutes to the bridge, are numerous restaurants includiing the Yim Siam Thai, fish, Indian, pizzas and carveries, waterside pubs, takeaways including the Golden Fish for seafood and Chinese dishes, and the famous Roys department store as well as numerous self drive day boat hire and larger skippered commercial pleasure boat centres. The cottage is well placed as a base if you are visiting the Norfolk Broads Yacht Club that is based on nearby Wroxham Broad.

There is also a small bar virtually on the Peninsula Cottages site called The Shed that serves has a good range of beers, including Banks's, and ciders. This is less than a minutes walk from the cottage and also has a darts board and pool table for entertainment in the winter evenings.

The historic City of Norwich, with its castle, open air market and cathedral is about 9 miles away - with the option to use park and ride as well as public transport connections - and the beaches of the Norfolk coast are about 12 miles away. Why not book now for some shopping in Norwich?

Fishing is available in season from the site. The season starts again in June to March 2016 so please book now as a great base for winter pike fishing - we can arrange for your boat to be moored on site during your visit. Recently some guests caught a 22lb pike on the bank just outside the front door. The infamous Wroxham bridge can be seen from the communal gardens and is about 200 yards away up the river.

The cottage is fully double glazed, has just had all new electric powered heating and hot water - electricity use is charged at cost to the guest at the end of the visit - making it suitable for all year round use. A heavier weight duvet is kept in the cottage for winter use.

The kitchen is fully equipped with cooker, fridge, freezer, toaster, microwave and all utensils. Tea towel and dish cloth provided.

The lounge has two double sofas and a brand new flame effect fire and has views directly through the patio doors out over the communal gardens and to the River Bure. There is a modern TV with DVD player for your evening entertainment back at the cottage and WiFi is provided free of charge.

Upstairs is a galleried double bed with storage draws beneath, small wardrobe, draw unit, haidryer, and bed side cabinets with lamps. The bed is made up of you on arrival. There is also a shower room with shower cubicle, basin, toilet and heated towel rail combined with a heater.

Outside there is a small patio at both front and rear - the patio by the french doors is great to sit out on in the morning overlooking the river.

In the unlikely event that there is any issue with the accommodation there are staff on hand to provide and suggestions 5 days a week and an emergency assistance call out number for out of hours issues.

Complimentary car parking for one vehicle is immediately outside the front door with the option to moor your own boat for a small charge in the nearby marina.

Please double check availability with us by e-mail as we are already booking up fast for 2015. Bookings are now being taken for summer and autumn 2015 - so we suggest you book ahead for fishing and relaxing this year to avoid disappointment. Why pay for a larger cottage when there are just two occupants? If working for a week or two in the area why not stay here and relax in the evenings rather than use a hotel?

A £75 refundable security deposit will be taken when the keys are issued when you arrive assuming no damages this will be returned less the any electricity used at cost.

The East Anglia region

The Norfolk Broads are a series of rivers and broads, lakes, most of which are navigable. The are seven rivers and sixty three broads in total. It has been possible to hire boats on the broads sine John Loynes started his business in Wroxham and the marina behind the cottage was one of the first locations used by the business that started in 1878.

The Broads have been called "Britain's Magical Waterland" and many people have started their sailing passion on the local waterways in Norfolk.

In addition to boating there is abundant wildlife and there are many beautiful routes that follow the rivers for cyclists and walkers too.

The City of Norwich with its Cathedral and market place is about 8 miles away and the wide open beaches on the Norfolk coast are only a short drive from the cottage.

The seaside town of Great Yarmouth with its amusement arcades, beaches andnentertainment is about 30km from the cottage.


Wroxham is known as the "Capital of the Broads" and is actually the village on the South bank of the River Bure that when combined with the village of Hoveton St John on the North bank make up the combined settlement these days.

Boats of all kinds can be seen on the river and are available for hire with one of these operations being based immediately behind the cottage so day boat hire couldn't be more convenient. Canoe trips can also be taken from a centre within sight of the cottage and also for a more relaxing trip the larger commercial sight seeing vessels also leave from the marina behind the cottage so you can be skippered down the river while sipping your favourite drink and listening to the commentary about points of interest.

The village also has numerous shops - notably a yacht chandlers called Norfolk Marine and the famous Roy's store - this claims to be the largest village store in the world and covers a good supermarket, department store, clothing department and DIY store. There are a number of banks and fishing tackle shops in the village too.

There are numerous locations to eat and these include The Bridge Restaurant, Wherryman's Restaurant, The King's Head, The Hotel Wroxham, a fish and chip shop with eat in facilities and a couple of take always including fish and chips, Chinese and Indian cuisine. Within close proximity of the cottages is a small bar where some meals a served including breakfasts known as "The Shed".

In Wroxham there is a lovely riverside park with seating areas while others enjoy watching the boats navigate under the famous bridge that joins the two villages.

Wroxham is at one end of the Bure Valley Railway that offers an 18 mile round trip through the Norfolk countryside on a 15" gauge steam train. Wroxham Barns is a working craft centre withbchildrens funfair and tea shop. Also nearby are Hoveton Hall Gardens - 15 acres of gardens.

One mile South of the village is Wroxham Broad, best accessed by river and the home of the Norfolk Broads Yacht Club.
