Waveney Cottage is the perfect base to spend your holiday on the Norfolk Broads

  • 5 of 5

On arrival at Waveney Cottage we found the property clean and well equipped with a welcome pack including tea, coffee, milk and even a bottle of wine! A very welcome gesture. The cottage has everything you need for your stay and is located just a 5 minute walk from Wroxham town which is perfect for the shops and restaurants.

My dad enjoyed fishing from the deck at the back of the property whilst I sat and relaxed watching the wildlife. It was a well needed relaxing break for the family.

The only minor complaint would be the construction work that started a couple of days into the holiday at the rear of the house opposite but as the owners were not aware of this it was just one of those unavoidable things that happen. It was completed in approximately 5 days.

I would recommend taking a boat trip along the river, there are some beautiful properties along the banks and you also get to see some amazing wildlife. Although from the property we saw the local otter so plenty to be said for relaxing on your doorstep too!

Would definitely recommend Waveney Cottage to anyone looking to holiday nearby

We had a lovely week in Wroxham,the weather was very kind for us enabling us to sit on the patio and enjoy watching the swans. Easy walk through the boatyard into the village for morning paper etc. Also easy to reach the boat tours. Easy ride to the coast and other Norfolk attractions. Would recommend the cottage very highly.The welcome pack was very much appreciated.

Centrally situated in Wroxham, excellent, clean, well equipped accommodation.

Welcomed with some milk in the fridge and a bottle of wine. Lots of little touches to make our stay comfortable.

Much appreciated.

We enjoyed our week's holiday in Waveney Cottage. Lots to do, lovely country pubs and great days out.

Would recommend trips to BeWILDerwood, local zoos and of course messing about on the water.

Will return to the Broads again and would certainly recommend this accommodation.
