About this location

The East Anglia region

The Catherderal city of Norwich is only 7 miles away and the sandy beaches of the east coast can be found at Sea Palling, Cromer, Winterton-On-Sea, and Great Yarmouth, the nearest only 25 minutes by car.


Belaugh is a small hamlet in a conservation area within the Norfolk broads situated between the broadland villages of Wroxham and Coltishall.

An ideal setting for those that are wishing to enjoy a peaceful location with bird watching, cycling, walking, boating, and fishing opportunities. Cycling and walking trail details and information can be obtained from the tourist information centre in Wroxham. Also in Wroxham is a good choice of day boat hire centres for those wishing to explore the Rivers Bure and Ant and nearby broads.

Wroxham, known as the Capital of the Broads, is 3-4 minutes drive by car with Roys of Wroxham, "the worlds biggest village store", with waterside cafes, restaurants, shops, the Bure Valley Steam Railway, mainline train station into Norwich, several banks, a butchers, fresh fish shop and a decent fishing tackle shop. All this is supported by ample free parking. Visitors of all ages will also enjoy a visit to Wroxham Barns, where giftware, country foods, rose and plant centre, junior farm and funfair as well as craft studios and restaurant combine in one location. Why not take the children to BeWILDerwood Adventure Park with its tree houses, zip wires, jungle bridges and boat trips, which all combined makes a great day.

In the opposite direction to Wroxham is Coltishall. A very pleasant countryside walk, will take you on the Belaugh to Coltishall footpath, through the meadow adjacent to the river, where you will find a village shop and several pubs - two of which offer undoubtably the best eating within the broads. Take a look at the footpath here:

The seaside resorts of Great Yarmouth, Cromer, Sea Palling, Sheringham and Winterton on Sea offer sandy beaches and family entertainment. Sheringham also has a National Trust parkland with over 700 acres where you can enjoy walking and cycling and maybe finish off with a cream tea in the visitors centre.

Alternatively, spend a day in the fine city of Norwich, 8 miles, with its Norman cathedral, castle, museums, and theatres. Norwich also offers a vast array of cafes and shops, and it boasts open air markets. National Trust properties well worth visiting are Felbrigg Hall and Blicking Hall.

Golf can be found at Sprowston Hall.

"Super Property in a Lovely Setting"

I have rented a number of holiday homes in the Wroxham area over the past few years, but I think Kareela has been the best. The house was spotlessly clean on arrival, well furnished with comfortable b… More

Beautiful house, comfortable, clean, relaxing, everything supplied that you need for a worry-free holiday. Well maintained garden, tremendous for fishing and room for a hired boat. Even a daily newspaper delivered, milk and wine for our arrival. Absolutely brilliant. Being able to take our three little dogs was the icing on the cake. Best holiday we have ever had. Thank you Sian and Rob for letting us share your 'home'.

Thank you for the great review and we are so pleased you found the house to your liking. Sounds like the fishing came up trumps and we are glad you liked the newspaper delivered each day. We look forward to welcoming you back in future and very much appreciate you taking the time to write your review. Thank you very much.

"Did not disappoint!"

I have just returned from a week at Kareela and cannot fault it in any way. Although we have been boating on The Broads for years, this was the first time in a cottage and it did not disappoint. The h… More

Thanks for your feedback. Its great to hear that the weather was amazing and the fishing excellent, obviously both beyond our control, but we always have our fingers crossed for our guests.

We are delighted that the house exceeded your expectations and we look forward to welcoming you back in future. Thank you.

"A Real Gem"

We stayed at Kareela for a week in June/July, booking was easy, we found the house easy to find adequate parking for 2 cars. The property was very well equipped and has something for all the family.

The house was very clean, spacious and had everything you would need and more – great kitchen, TV's in all bedrooms, and a lovely garden .

The location is perfect with a beautiful setting right on the river and not too far to drive for anywhere around the Norfolk area

We visited the Recruiting Sergeant at Horstead one of the recommended pubs – Fantastic Food. Booking recommended

I would highly recommend this property and would definitely return again one day.

Many Thanks to Rob and Sian

Thank you very much for sparing the time to write some comments. We are delighted to hear that you found the house well equipped and that you had everything you needed.
We're glad you enjoyed our restaurant recommendations and look forward to offering you a warm welcome if you return to Norfolk in future. Thank you

"The perfect place to relax, unwind and explore the broads"

The house and facilities are excellent. The location is a prime spot for exploring the rest of the broads, plus the fishing is not too bad at the bottom of the garden. If you want somewhere to stay, where you can take the family/dogs in a house that has most amenities that you could think of, then you would be extremely hard pressed to beat Kareela.

Thank you for your kind comments. We are so pleased that you found the house and facilities excellent and look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

Many thanks

"Fantastic property in a peaceful, relaxing location only five minutes from Wroxham."

Kareela is a fantastic property with plenty of room in a beautiful setting, ideal for relaxing and watching the world go by.
There is lots of space in the garden for the children to play.
Equipped with everything you need and more.
Couldn't ask for a more comfortable place to chill out.

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. We are delighted to hear that you had a great time at Kareela and that you enjoyed the space that the house and garden afford.

We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

Thank You
