The property was clean, tidy and well maintained with excellent facilities. The owners were very welcoming. A perfect site for fishing, boating and wider touring of the area. The local pub has a good selection of beers and good value food. The village has a well stocked shop and an upmarket restaurant. An ideal property for a relaxing vacation with plenty to do if desired.

Owner's Response: It is good to have another satisfied customer. We work hard to keep both the bungalow in good condition & the garden neat & tidy. We always try to be at the property to welcome our guests, some of which have been coming to us for over 15 years.

From the Owner

There is something about being by water. We fell in love with the broads in the 1970's & found Brundall to be less busy than the main centres on the north river.
