Charming riverside property

  • 5 of 5

Even though the weather was very cold and at times wet, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this very cosy and comfortable cottage. The kitchen is modern and well equipped. Everything throughout was in good working order and spotlessly clean. We had lovely walks along the river and in the surrounding area. And despite being winter, it was lovely to sit in the garden and at the dining table looking at the river at the bottom of the lawn. There is lots to do and see locally and I would love to return to this charming cottage.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review. I am very pleased that Vespers provided the short break you were looking for, albeit that the English weather was a little challenging. I hope you will consider Vespers again when you are in the area. It was a pleasure to have you stay there.

Surprisingly spacious, get-away-from-it-all cabin with every comfort thought of

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a lovely relaxing few days here, enjoying being right on the river, eating breakfast watching the boats go by. We are a family of 2 adults and 2 children (11 & 13). Lesley is an amazing host, she had thought of everything we could need, even down to a dog basket which we'd forgotten to bring! The nearby beaches are wonderfully sandy and even have seals! One word of caution is that it is a short walk from the car and you have to go over a steep bridge with your luggage, but Lesley supplies a trundle trolley in the shed for you to use.

Very comfortable property and will recommend

  • 5 of 5

Very pleasurable and relaxing as soon as we arrived, the property was clean and comfortable with everything you needed for six adults, the owner just at the end of a phonecall if needed with quick reply, our grandson 24yrs a keen fisherman thought the fishing was wonderful too. Supermarket and fishing equipment shop five minuets away. We've had a great time and will hopefully return soon, tried hard to find a fault but we cannot.

I am very grateful. I hope you will return very soon. Kindest regards, Lesley

Perfectly Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Only a few minutes walk to the center of Potter Higham, it's perfectly located on the waterfront. We hired a boat and moored it directly outside! We could've sat there for hours watching the world go by.

We will DEFINITELY return, this time with friends. There isn't a single negative about our stay, the cottage/home, the location or anything!

Stunning property.

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my partner stayed at Vespers for 3 nights. The property is very homely and has everything you would need for your stay. It's situated in a very peaceful location and stunning scenery. We can not fault Vespers at all and only have good things to say about it. The property owner was very polite and kept in contact via text and email and was always extremely helpful. We will definitely be returning again in the future for another relaxing holiday.

Well loved holiday home in great location.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at our holiday lodge greeted by the lovely owner Lesley.

The lodge was incredibly well kitted out and extremely clean and tidy.

It was fantastic to be right on the broads and found it very relaxing watching the boats go by !

We will definitely be using the lodge again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her lodge.

I do not always get to meet all my guest but I'm glad I was there that day. Your kids were great but my heart was stolen by your gorgeous four legged friend. I truly hope you will consider Vespers again in the future and look forward to hearing what you get up to next time. Kindest regards, Lesley

About Lesley Grant

Hi, I'm Lesley and the very proud owner of Vespers.

I have owned this property since 2005 and my family and I have enjoyed many holidays and created so many precious memories there.

I want all my holiday makers to get the most from their holiday and create special memories with their family and friends and I am here to help wherever I can.

Lesley Grant purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Lesley Grant chose Potter Heigham

I spent many holidays on the Norfolk Broads as a child and always dreamed of being able to create the same memories and fun for my own family.

I fell in love with Vespers because of its easy access yet feeling like it was a million miles away from the stresses of everyday life.

What makes this cabin unique

Vespers is spacious and offers you a home from home environment with the tranquillity of the River Thurne in your front garden.

I am a keen cook so the kitchen is well equipped but also there are many lovely places to eat close by if you want to get away from everyday chores.

I'm here to help so please ask any questions you may have about the property or the surrounding area and I will assist if I can.
