About the Owner

We the owners are Sue and Alfred and we acquired Meadow Brown Cottage in 2005 as a holiday home for ourselves and our family. We love going to East Ruston and we find there is a large demand from holidaymakers for cottages like ours. So we decided that by letting it out to others, we can share our enjoyment of the great facilities and the local environment with others.

We are now both retired, and have enjoyed thoroughly refurbishing the cottage to our own high standards. Whilst we use our leisure time to visit many new places we always look forward to our own stays at Meadow Brown every few months as it is so relaxing.

Sue was born in Norfolk and loves returning to her old haunts there

  • 4 of 5

My husband and myself, who are both retired spent a week in April in Meadow Brown Cottage. We are from Norfolk but live away so used this as a base to spend special time with our son, daughter their partners and our grandson who lives locally. The cottage was well equipped with comfortable beds, a large lounge and super view across the private common and lake. There are lots of walks from the cottage, good fishing in the private lake next door and plenty of places to visit. We all enjoyed ourselves both out and about and cosily doing jigsaw puzzles. We all had an wonderful time.

Location

From the Owner

We bought Meadow Brown in 2005- having spent a long time searching for something suitable for ourselves. Most places we saw were pleasant but did not have a special feel about them. What attracted us, then, and still does now, is as soon as you walk in the front door and go into the lounge, the view is stunning and you immediately feel relaxed . Car parking is right by the cottage but off the road, The Butcher's Arms pub which serves good meals and beer is within walking distance of the cottage. The cottage is within 15 minutes of Wroxham, Stalham, Potter Heigham, Hickling Broad, Walcott; Sea Palling and Barton Broad. 30 minutes away are the city of Norwich; Great Yarmouth; Cromer and Winterton Beach. Stalham is a small town with a good branch of Tesco and other shops of i

Facilities

From the Owner

There is a fishing lake within the grounds which attracted many specialist anglers in the past. Some otters appeared recently, which has reduced the number of large fish. The management committee are constantly reviewing the situation with the intention of eventually restocking the lake. In the meantime families can still enjoy some recreational fishing, However, there is a Carp lake nearby, which still attracts the serious angler. There are 2 blocks of cottages on the site, and Meadow Brown is on the end of one of the terraces and is the largest cottage and has 3 bedrooms and a separate kitchen. It is extremely well equipped with all mod cons including dishwasher. Our son and his family stay each Summer and enjoy all the local beaches and facilities.

Notes:

  • Notes on accommodation: cottage will sleep 5 in bedrooms. Sleeping in lounge is not permitted. Pets are not permitted. All beds have memory foam mattresses. Outside: The property has its own large patio with a gate leading on to communal grounds and fishing lake. There are 2 lakes where holiday makers can enjoy fishing. The first is directly in front of the cottages and presents a relaxing and superb view with plenty of wildlife, birds and even a family of otters. The effect of the otters has been to reduce the quantity and quality of the fish stock. However, this is still ideal for all those except the experienced and serious anglers. For them, we can now offer the facilities of the Carp Lake ajoining the property which is fenced and protected fron those predators that enjoy the lakes produce. 2 Passes are available for our guests to fish there but in order to protect that environment we ask our guests to observe the rules of fishing and respect the facilities offered to us by the owners of the lake under licence. Here we ask our holiday makers to report on their catches and ensure that others fishing there can do so without disturbance. Utility Room: There is a communal washing machine- costs £2 per load on site There is an outside oil boiler on patio Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: The property is fully cleaned before and after each letting. Towels and linen all provided. Other: Outside Patio has large garden table and 6 garden chairs. Parasols and other garden furniture as well as external oil fired boiler, controlled from inside cottage, Hall connecting stairs, kitchen, shower room, and bedroom - 2 bicycles for use of guests
