Description

Modernised Riverside chalet on The Norfolk Broads next to a Norfolk Wildlife Trust nature reserve but only 3 miles from city life.
Ideal for birding, river activities & visiting the fine city of Norwich, either by river (40 mins) or road (10 mins).
Large south facing verandah offers ever changing view of the the tidal river Yare, a thoroughfare for wildfowl, and aquatic recreation.
Heating & large wood burner ensure all year round comfort. Hire a day boat, fishing boat or canoe from local boatyards - Thorpe Leisure Craft to explore the Broads. Water taxi & river bus can take you into Norwich and even collect you from right outside the railway station.
The small hire cruiser fleet is run from the adjacent boat yard so activity such as one or two boat handovers a day and boat servicing should be expected.

Location description from owner

The East Anglia region

The riverside holiday home offers the best of both a wildlife retreat, relaxing & watching the river flow, and the interest of exploring the city of Norwich by river, public transport or cycle. Step out the gate onto Norfolk Wildlife Trust nature reserve - Thorpe Marshes for birdwatching, next day hire canoes or a day boat to explore the Broads. Go by river to enjoy history & culture of Norwich, either alone, or in the luxury of a piloted launch that will collect you later that evening.

“Lovely stay in lovely accommodation in lovely part of the world.”

Reviewed 30 Aug 2013

We really enjoyed our week at Kingfisher Chalet. It was very easy to book and all questions we asked in advance of the owner Stephen were promptly answered. The chalet was spotlessly clean and furnished to a high standard. The kitchen was also very well equipped. It was fantastic waking up in the morning and sitting out on the veranda having a cup of tea. The spot on the River Yare is really beautiful with boats and wild life going past. In the evenings the local rowers and canoeists would race along. It is no bother sharing the boatyard. The kids had great fun opening and closing the gates for the railway line. You can walk to the nearest pub which is about 15 minutes along the river and across the fields. It is very easy to get into Norwich and out to the coast. We went canoeing on the Broads just 15 minutes drive away. We fished every day from outside the Chalet and caught small Roach, Bream and Perch. It is a really lovely spot. It was great to have access to Wifi everyone. We travelled with a 17, 19 and 22 year old ... we all really enjoyed the break and hope to return in the future. Stephen was available if we needed him and the kids thoroughly enjoyed playing with Digby his lovely dog.

Glad to open peoples eyes to the wonders of the Broads, through our well appointed riverside bungalow

“Very good for a newly re-furbished building!”

We were the first to stay in this lovely converted cabin by the River Yare. We had a very friendly greeting by the owners, who took us round the cabin and outside area. It was easy to settle in and the views of the river and wildlife were beautiful. The inside was very clean, and all things like the equipment and cutlery were new and spotless. As this is an on-going project for Stephen, we were told of his plans for the future to improve it even more. He is very hard-working, and a very approachable and pleasant chap. It was lovely to just sit outside and watch boats and birds pass by, and despite seeming to be in a busy area of the city when you came close to arriving in the car, it is down a long off-road track which lead to lots of trees and plants. We had a few minor problems, like the wi-fi not reaching the cabin strongly enough, but that was fixed the next day by Stephen installing a booster. He was very eager to help us, and even took the kids out in his own kayak's to let them experience the river. Watch out for his lovely dog, Digby, you will want to take him home with you! All in all, it was a top-notch holiday, and we would definitely consider it for next year, just to see what improvements he has made. Very relaxing and away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Big thanks to all our first summers guests who have enjoyed their "gorgeous" riverside relaxing holiday, and kindly helped by fine tuning for the next guests. We are especially looking forward to winter bird watchers & walkers looking for a beautiful place to stay on a Broads Nature Reserve, together with the proximity of the attractions of a fine city.
