Accommodation for a relaxing break on the Norfolk Broads is just a click away. East Anglia has much to offer in the way of holidays, but a break on the Broads is a truly English retreat.
The Norfolk Broads are a series of inland waterways stretching from the heart of Norfolk down through Suffolk and out to the coast. The beautiful landscape is a jumble of broads (wider waterways), canals, lakes and rivers with charming towns and villages dotted throughout.
There are cottages for hire throughout the area and if all you want to do is relax, then the peaceful Broads are the perfect setting. Many visit the area to try their hand at sailing for the first time, and the area is also ideal for fishing. The Broads constitute Britain's largest protected wetland area so are a holiday hot spot for bird watchers and wildlife fans alike.
Described by our guests as a home from home with everything you could possibly need. Goleby's Cottage is the perfect base for exploring the Norfolk Broads and surrounding area or as a quiet escape to unwind. The cottage is walking distance from Hickling Broad, 2 local p …see more

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 … More
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.
