Within an easy drive of Norfolk’s finest coastline with sandy beaches backed with dunes, and the traditional seaside resorts. Norwich is 5 miles away with its cathedrals, museums, theatres, array of shops, market place, restaurants and cafes. Shop 2 miles and very the popular riverside gastro pub - The Water Edge just minutes walk along the river bank.

About Daniel & Julia Kazimierczak

Julia & Daniel aquired the cottage and house behind in August 2014. They have already improved the property significantly including the renewal of the quay heading and mooring, new garden fencing (secure for dogs), new linen, bedding and towels and upgraded furniture, installed free Wi-Fi. Visit us at Holly Lodge, Bramerton Common on Facebook for more pictures.

Why Daniel & Julia Kazimierczak chose Norfolk & The Broads

Many of our guests return year after year. Its an beautiful and tranquil environment. Many holiday makers stay at the house and enjoy the view. A good number of them fish from the private deck (excellent fishing and well known locally), rent a boat that can be moored directly outside or walk along the miles of river bank visiting local pubs along the way.

What makes this cottage unique

Direct river access & views. Quite and tranquil, but not remote as we are just 15 minutes drive from Norwich City centre. Great for fishing, boating, long walks or a base to see Norfolk.

Little patch of peaceful perfection

  • 5 of 5

We found Holly Lodge to be just what we'd hoped for from its description - somewhere warm amd cosy to relax and while away the time just watching the wildlife and river life. Rabbits, squirrels, swans, ducks, geese, herons, kayakers and cruisers were all spotted from the windows. It is equipped with everything you need and it was a shame that iffy weather didn't allow us to take advantage of the jetty or patio. However - it did mean we took full advantage of sitting in the conservatory, watching the river, under a glorious tree looking up and watching the busy birds in its bare branches, warm as toast from the blazing log-burner. One word of warning - just make sure you know where you're going if you arrive in the dark - don't follow the path towards Surlingham! Walking across the common to get to the cottage is not a problem - it just added to the sense of isolation and adventure! Lots of lovely walks from the doorstep. Loved it and hope to return again. Thank you.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for the lovely review. We have had a couple of people miss where the cottage is at night, so we doing endeavour to put the lights on so its noticed. We also plan to fit a permanent outdoor day/night light so guests can easily identify the cottage when approaching from Bramerton Common when its dark.

A lovely clean and well equipped cottage in a great location. Beautiful views and so relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage exceeded our expectations. The slightly isolated location at the far end of Bramerton Common in a woodland setting gave us one of the most relaxing weeks holiday we have had for a very long time.

A good welcome in the form of a bottle of wine and biscuits. The cottage overlooks the River Yare and we were able to watch the passing boats and rowers and the comings and goings of the boats mooring at the Common. The local squirrel entertained us collecting acorns and storing them for the winter nearby. The nearby Waters Edge restaurant provided some excellent food and drink. There are other pubs within walking distance or a short drive.

My daughter wished to carry on her course studies online for a few hours during our stay and the BT wifi was excellent. I enjoyed the fishing at the bottom of the garden while she swotted!

We very much hope to return at a later date do some more walking and exploring of this lovely part of Norfolk.

Great for the dog, great for the fishing!

  • 5 of 5

A lovely location, an interesting garden for the dog to explore and excellent fishing on your own private mooring. Until this holiday I had never seen a kingfisher but they were there to see every day! The cottage itself had everything we needed and was exactly as described. We will certainly return!

The property is in an amazing location and had everything you need for a great holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this property for a week at the end of August. The property was clean and tidy and all the amenities were as described in the listing.The weather was extremely kind to us and this just added to the amazing location. It would have been very easy to spend the entire week just sitting in the conservatory or on the mooring watching the 'world go by', but we dragged ourselves away and visited some great places in the surrounding area. The waters edge pub served amazing food and we received a warm welcome there. Places worth a visit include, Winterton-on-sea, which has an amazing beach, Blikling Hall a fascinating national trust property and Norwich with its incredible cathedral. I would recommend this property due to its location and its 'away from it all' feel.
