The boathouse is a unique space which sleeps 2 in one bedroom/sitting room overlooking the Broad. Fully centrally heated and completely renovated last year, it also has kitchenette, wet room and sunny patio. A pub and cafe are a short walk away. Hot tub rental available.
“My boyfriend and I spent a lovely 4 days at Jane's Boat House in February. The place is just as lovely as it looks in the photos and the views from both sides are very picturesque, even in gale force winds and lashing rain! We loved sitting at the front window overlooking the broads and boats - it was so relaxing and peaceful. Similarly, the sheep and alpacas in the field to the back kept us amused chasing each other around. So sweet! The Boat House is so cosy, warm and snug and the bed is so comfortable. There are also sweet little touches dotted around like freshly cut flowers and sea shells decorating the bath towels. Despite the weather we did manage one evening in the hot tub which was wonderfully relaxing. Jane provides big robes to put on afterwards for the dash back into the warmth. As other reviewers have mentioned, the stairs are very steep but thankfully there are hand rails on both sides so you soon get used to them. Just make sure you have at least one hand free and don't attempt to go down laden with crockery and glasses! We enjoyed a couple of lovely meals out - the first in the Ship Inn just down the road in South Walsham and the other a little further afield in the King's Head in Holt. We also visited the Malsters for a few drinks which is only a 2 minute walk away. The beach at Winterton is a lovely place for a long walk. Jane wasn't around when we first arrived but the self check-in is very easy with the use of a key safe and means that you don't feel like you are disrupting anyone's day. When we met Jane on the second day she was very friendly and welcoming and definitely strikes the right balance between letting you know she is always on hand whilst ensuring you have complete privacy during your stay. All in all we had a fantastic time and are already thinking about when to go back. The Boat House is the perfect location for a long weekend of total rest and relaxation.”
“Our stay of a full week in the annex was a pure pleasure for us and we could not imagine a better base for any visit to the area. The accommodation is immaculate, spotless and very comfortable for two. The main lounge / dining room is a huge space overlooking a very private and pretty garden, attracting a lot of wildlife - squirrels, woodpeckers etc - for which Barry & Helen provide identification guides - we spent hours happily watching all the visiting birds. We were greeted with a quick induction from Barry and a very generous arrival pack including basics and cake and wine. Barry and Helen live adjacent to the annex and while on hand if assistance is required the annex is otherwise entirely private. They were very helpful to us with local knowledge, suggestions for cycling etc. The location on Charles Close is extremely peaceful - a welcome contrast to the relative traffic noise and bustle of Wroxham centre which is only a 10 minute walk away. Walking in the opposite direction are open fields and lanes leading to local broads - excellent for cycling or walking or boat trips. We spent a full day sailing on a Wherry and highly recommend that to any boat lovers. All in all we cannot recommend the annex too highly for convenience, comfort and all round good value. Thank you Barry & Helen!”

“Lovely warm and cosy cottage with many extra thoughtful touches - eggs, bread, butter, milk, marmalade etc. The garden is perfect for people with children and/or dogs as it is safe and fully secure. We didn’t meet our hosts as there is a key safe but David made sure he kept in touch and made it clear we could contact him if necessary.”
