About the property

Cosy one bedroom, recently converted boathouse in the heart of the Broads.

The Boat House is a unique space which sleeps 2 in one bedroom/sitting room. Fully centrally heated and completely renovated last year, the property has a wonderfully sunny patio where you can relax after a busy day exploring the area. The accommodation comprises of one large room upstairs which has a Feather and Black bed which can be split into twin beds or made into one large double bed. This room also has two armchairs and a TV with a large inbuilt desk set under a window which looks out towards the Broad and the moored boats. This is a wonderful space for the budding writer or for enjoying breakfast. The original staircase (fairly steep) leads down to the kitchenette (please note no oven) and wetroom. The wetroom has underfloor heating. There is a pub and a cafe in the village, both 5 minute's walk away which serve lunch and evening meals (only the pub serves the latter). There is also 'The Ship Inn' in South Walsham which serves meals and is just over a mile away. The apartment is dog friendly, we accept one well behaved dog.

HOT TUB RENTAL now available, £75 per break. The tub is filled and heated for your arrival and comes with a chilled bottle of prosecco.


We also have Grey Seal Cottage in Wells next the Sea 8172238 and Grey Goose Cottage also in Wells 6714282

Why Jane Wilson chose Norwich

Amongst the many things that make living here special, are waking up to the sunshine with the mist hanging over the broad (with the boom of the bittern in the distance if you are lucky!), listening to the owls hooting late at night and drifting along the river on a boat. There is so much to see and do here, not only in the village but also in the rest of the Broads. We are also close to many beaches and Norwich is only half an hour away with it's wonderful shops and museums.

Excellent accommodation - warm and cosy with beautiful views.

  • 5 of 5

A good stay and excellent facilities. Clean and well presented. Just right for two and dog friendly. Window looking out over the Broad where you can sit and watch the boats. Dog friendly pub in the village, very welcoming with fire and good quality food. Highly recommended as place to stay.

Really enjoyed our stay. Well suited for a short break.

  • 4 of 5

Cosy bolthole with fine view of the broads from upstairs living space. Stairs a bit steep but we got used to them quickly. Very well situated in a lovely village and short walk to the local pub. Would book again for a short break in the Broads.

Lovely relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely 4 night stay in the boat house. It is a beautiful unique space and in a great location to explore the surrounding areas. We enjoyed the hot tub for our stay, which was especially lovely when the church bells were ringing one night.

Recommend going to Winterton-On-Sea for the best fish and chips and Horsey beach to see all the seals.

Thank you very much Jane for a great holiday.

Jade, Mike and Mabel.

The rare swallowtail butterfly can often be seen in the garden. Ranworth church which you can see from the property is known as the 'Cathedral of the Broads'. Climb up to the top of the tower and enjoy wonderful views of the village and views all the way across to the coast. The church is known for it's beautiful rood screen and antiphoner, it is well worth a visit. There is also a cafe here. A few minutes walk from the accommodation is the staithe which is host to the many boats which visit the village. Here you will find the pub, the shop and a cafe.
