Location description from owner

The East Anglia region

The Norfolk Broads is a network of inland water ways. It attracts many visitors wishing to enjoy the scenery, wildlife (especially birds), watersports, beaches, cycling (it's quite flat!) and charm of the area.

Horning

Horning is situated on the River Bure in the heart of the Norfolk Broads about 10 miles from Norwich and 3 miles from Wroxham. The family friendly village provides good local amenities including 3 riverside pubs (all serving food), restaurants, Chinese takeaway, tea room, deli, butcher, newsagent/grocery store, post office, hair & beauty salon, swimming pool and fishing tackle/bait shop. Fine sandy beaches are a 20 minute drive away.The property has its own mooring and there is a slip way nearby for Trailer Sailors. If you bring your own boat, or you hire one locally, there is so much to discover and explore. For peace and tranquility or uninterrupted sailing and fishing, head for the Black Horse Broad or Ranworth Broad. If you want to go with the flow head up river to popular destinations such as Wroxham (1 hour cruising) or Potter Heigham with it’s famous bridge (1½ hour cruising). Throughout the year there are many sailing events from Horning including the challenging annual Three Rivers Yacht Race.

“a great holiday”

Reviewed 10 Apr 2013

We spent a week in Owlswick cottage which was very comfortable. Carol was very welcoming and helpful. Having the day boat was great because we went to different places and saw a lot of wildlife. Horning is great for food; there are 3 pubs within 5 minutes of each other ( by foot) and a lovely delicatessen. There is also a very good fish restaurant. We went to Cromer, Norwich, and lots of little villages on the way. The seaside resorts are fantastic. We went on a trip to see the seals and we were not disappointed, we saw a lot of them. The weather was freezing, like everywhere else in the UK but it never rained and the lounge was south west facing so we had the sun all afternoon and evening. We were 4 adults and 2 teenagers and the cottage was fine for all of us. The fact that we could walk to the shops, restaurants and pubs was a great advantage. The only problem was the mobile reception: it was non existent for us ( we are with EE or formerly Orange) so we had to walk in the middle of the street to get a signal. Apparently Vodaphone and O2 are better. Despite the weather it was a lovely holiday and the area is definitely worth the visit.

Many thanks for your lovely review and we are glad you had a good holiday. We hope to see you again very soon. Regards Riverside Rentals :)
