Cottage in Wroxham, Capital of the Norfolk Broads, Norfolk England - Peaceful Riverside Location On A Private Marina Only 5-minutes Stroll From Wroxham Bridge
Bure Cottage is set in the exclusive Peninsular Marina by the banks of the River Bure at Wroxham, Capital of the Broads. The romantic self-catering cottage mostly faces the sun, a dinghy's distance from a private dyke with stunning bedroom views of the main river. Re-decorated, new carpets, furnishings and managed by the owner - plus new freezer and extra TV with freeview fitted in the twin-bedroom in 2015. Sleeps four with all comforts. Beds are made on arrival day - and unlike many of the other cottages there, prices include everything, no surprises for electricity or towel hire. Weekly rental is Saturday-to-Saturday; short breaks Friday, Saturday & Sunday evenings; or mid-week Tuesday to Friday. Extra days are possible - contact us about short breaks. Prices are very competitive, especially out of season. Sorry, no pets or smoking. Enjoy the lawn river frontage to watch boats, fish, or just relax with a bottle of wine. Marvel at swans and ducks swimming towards you - and at sunset, unwind on the decked terrace gazing at picnic-boats lazily sailing home. The Peninsular Complex is a working marina and sometimes a boat will be moored outside the cottage. However, guests are free to sit and fish anywhere onsite. Finish your day dining in the rustic boathouse onsite bar and bistro, with a massive range of real ales. tranquil riverside gardens are perfect to lounge among ornamental grasses, flowers and willows. Watch boats chug by, hire your own, or take a river cruise on one of the many trips among Britain's largest protected wetlands. Magical waterways and lakes dotted with quaint unspoiled villages, windmills and old riverside pubs to explore. A paradise for nature lovers. The famous 400-year-old Wroxham Bridge and village centre is just 5-minutes stroll. With pubs, restaurants, fish & chips, launderette, Roy's shops, McDonald's and railway station. The ideal Norfolk location for a tranquil holiday for children or the not so young. So much to see and do, and close to the beaches of Great Yarmouth and the medieval city of Norwich.

Nice cottage in great location
was worried based on some reviews but needn't have been. The cottage was clean and comfortable with lots of storage. A good kitchen with seating area & lovely bedrooms. We didn't fish & wouldn't have been able to directly outside of the cottage due to the boat moored, but was room just around the corner to do so if wanted. The sun was outside the patio doors for most of the day, so a lovely place to sit outside & watch the boats & birds go by if the weather good, but also a good view out if needed to sit inside. A very short walk into Wroxham, which has restaurants, a pub & Roys (a shop that has everything you can imagine in there)! Lots to do if stay close by or lots of trips on boats/trains or by foot to keep you busy or relax at the cottage. Only negative was a very poor wifi connection for us A great place to stay & we will return
needed a good clean, paint and carpet
It was advertised as being refurbished with new carpets. Upon arrival it looked fine, but the walls were grubby in the kitchen, the carpet was really worn as it had no underlay. The walls were marked from suitcases and bins hitting them. It was filthy between the cooker and fridge. The roller blind was covered in dead mosquitoes. Handle was falling off cooker door. We had to wash glasses on arrival. The bedroom curtain pole fell down as it had been fitted upside down?? At the side of the bath there was a brown mark and it was grubby. On the plus side the beds were comfortable but grubby on the skirting board around them. The bedding was nice and the local Shed Bar was very loud on one of the nights. The privacy partition between us and next door was missing. The heater in the bathroom kept cutting out after ten seconds. I wish I could add the photos I've taken☹
