Description

Sandringham Cottage is set in a near perfect central position on the banks of the River Bure on the Norfolk Broads within clear view of the infamous Wroxham Bridge - perfect for a tranquil and relaxing break. Due to its prominent position on the Peninsula holiday cottages site - in what is often termed the Capital of the Broads - on the river at Wroxham - many guests have seen the cottage in friends' holiday pictures.

Double glazed French doors open onto your own South East facing patio, complete with chairs for your use, with fine river views - an ideal place to while away the mornings while watching the activity on the river. In the evening the light weight chairs can be moved round and placed by the kitchen window to enjoy the evening sun and in summer this is a great place to watch returning day boats to the nearby marina and other boats making their way under the nearby Wroxham Bridge or to fish in season.

The cottage is on the Peninsula private marina site

Double glazed French doors open onto your own South East facing patio, complete with chairs for your use, with fine river views - an ideal place to while away the mornings while watching the activity on the river. In the evening the light weight chairs can be moved round and placed by the kitchen window to enjoy the evening sun and in summer this is a great place to watch returning day boats to the nearby marina and other boats making their way under the nearby Wroxham Bridge or to fish in season.

The cottage is on the Peninsula private marina site that offers shared gardens, a private mooring if required right outside the cottage, and fishing from just outside the patio doors in season. Pike, bream and perch are regularly landed within 10 feet of the cottage door and wild swans are nearly always on the river nearby.

Hoveton village centre is a pleasant 10 minute walk away with a wide range of shops including the infamous Roy's store, cafes, pubs and restaurants. Favourites eateries nearby for guests not wishing to use the self catering option include the Yim Siam Thai, Wherryman's, The River Kitchen, Hotel Wroxham and King's Head Cavery. Takeaways include Thai, Indian, Chinese and a choice of fish and chips such as Ken's. There is always McDonalds' for the kids!

The Boat Shed bar is adjacent to the Peninsula site and has a wide variety of beers and ciders, a pool table and is less than a 2 minute walk from the cottage - ideal for that evening beer!

Tour boats and dayboat hire are available less than five minutes walk from your door to explore the magic of the Norfolk Broads by river. Try Wroxham Boat Hire, Broads Tours or The Canoe Man as some of the many means to get afloat locally while based at the cottage.

The fine city of Norwich, that can be accessed easily by train, bus, car or park and ride at Sprowston, is about 8 miles away for shopping and theatre trips while the sandy beaches of the Norfolk coast are about 14 miles away. Cromer and Great Yarmouth are nearby too for traditional seaside activities.

Other attractions include the Bure Valley Railway, Hoveton Hall, Blickling Hall, Wroxham Barns, BeWILDerwood, Go Ape and various zoos such as Africa Alive!

On return from a busy day you can relax in your beautiful holiday home that has been fully renovated in 2015. Firstly it has a fully fitted kitchen with views of the iconic Wroxham Bridge. The kitchen features integral fridge freezer, dishwasher, microwave, hob, extractor, oven and a built in fan heater if required in winter. All reasonably required cooking utensils are provided as is a dining a table for four if needed.

The living room with great river views including a feature port hole window that many guests love, two new leather sofas, an electric fireplace, TV, DVD and Wi Fi. A complimentary teas and coffee pack will be in the cottage for you to enjoy for refreshment on arrival.

Upstairs is a stunning main bedroom with a beautiful double bed, bed side tables, chest of drawers and large wardrobe. The South East facing window gives a virtually unparalleled view of this popular stretch of the River Bure in the morning.

There is a second bedroom that sleeps 2 with twin beds, chest of drawers, large wardrobe and picture window that can open fully with views to Wroxham Bridge.

All bedrooms have fantastic dual aspect main river views, beds are all made up with lovely pillows and duvets ready for your arrival and, unlike some other cottages, there is full ceiling height throughout. You will be amazed at how relaxed you will feel after just a few days enjoying this environment.

There is a family bathroom, again full height throughout, with bath, shower above, hand basin, toilet, blower heater, storage cupboard, electric shaver point and heated towel rail. We have worked hard on a recent refit of this to ensure it is both practical and adds to your holiday experience. Two towels per guest are provided for your use.

The cottage is fully insulated, double glazed and has electric heating through out for cosy nights in making for enjoyable breaks all year round.

Allocated off road parking for one vehicle is provided in a car park close to the cottage - arrangements for a second car can be made for an additional fee. We can make arrangements for a dayboat to be moored right outside your cottage for the duration of your stay if required. We can advise where boats can be launched locally if trailed.

Prices from 1 January 2017 include the cost of electricity.

Location description from owner

The East Anglia region

Norfolk is a county of many varied attractions including sandy coastal beaches, busy seaside resorts like Great Yarmouth with their slot machines, the fine City of Norwich with a cathedral, castle, many shops, theatres and restaurants, beautiful country houses such as Blicking Hall and Sandringham, zoos such as Africa Wild and Banham, and of course the Norfolk Broads.

The Norfolk Broads is a unique area, known as Britain's Magical Waterland and is an ideal base area for a tranquil and relaxing holiday while still only be a couple of hours from the heart of London without having to face all the stress of modern air travel. The quiet rivers make the area ideal for watching the wildlife, the lanes are great for walking or cycling and of course there are almost endless opportunities for those that enjoy boating.The Norfolk Broads are a series of 7 rivers and navigable waterways about 120 miles long that connect about 63 lakes known as broads. In January 2015 the area was approved to change its name to the Broads National Park in recognition of outstanding natural beauty of the area and the abundant wildlife.

Wroxham

Wroxham, know as "The Capital of the Broads" has plenty to offer the whole family.In the immediate vicinity of the cottage there are a number of tour boat operators, day boat operators, boat chandlers and fishing tackle shops for those that are interested in activities on the water - Wroxham Broad is about a mile down stream and a few miles upstream from the cottage are Belaugh and then Coltishall that has a few good pubs that can be accessed from the road or river.

There is also a range of pubs and restaurants, the nearest being The Shed is a converted boat shed that is no more than a 2 minute walk and offers a number of real ales, ciders and has a pool table and darts board for entertainment. For those that wish to use the kitchen in the cottage there is Roys Food Hall in the village within walking distance and a Tesco superstore on the outskirts of Norwich.

Also close by are Wroxham Barns with all sorts of craft shops, the Bewilderwood outdoor activity centre and the Bure Valley Railway.The Norfolk coast is about 12 miles away for those that enjoy the sandy coast, further afield is Blakeney or Cromer, while Norwich is about 8 miles away. Norwich can be accessed by bus or train from Wroxham or for those with cars their is a good park and ride facility too.
