Star Cottage is a 2-bedroom (sleeps 4) riverside holiday cottage in the village of Wroxham, in the heart of the Norfolk Broads. The cottage is close to the famous and iconic Wroxham Bridge and has the great benefit of being on the downstream side of the bridge where all the activity takes place! Star Cottage guests can relax in the lounge or on their private patio while watching the ever-changing scenery of wildlife and boating activities taking place on the river before them.
Guests may fish directly from the cottage lawns (in season only), and many other activities such as cycling, canoeing, walking and horse-riding are available very close by - as are a range of pubs, cafes, restaurants and local shopping in Wroxham village centre, which is only a short walk away. The cottage has it’s own private parking but since Wroxham village has a railway station and excellent bus services, so you can easily holiday at Star Cottage without needing a car at all if required.
So, whether you are looking for an energetic holiday or a relaxing one, Star Cottage is the ideal location. And don’t forget that Wroxham is within easy exploring distance of the Norfolk coast, much beautiful countryside and quaint local villages – or even city-centre shopping in Norwich.
The cottage itself sleeps up to four guests in two comfortable bedrooms, one double and one twin. The whole property has been progressively re-decorated to a high standard by the current owners, ready for the 2014 season.
On the ground floor the cottage has an entrance hall with storage and cloakroom, with a large open-plan lounge, dining and kitchen area making-up the rest of the ground floor, with French doors leading out onto a private patio, complete with garden furniture.
Upstairs is a family bathroom including full-size bath with electric shower over. The main double bedroom has views across the river, and includes a dressing table, built-in wardrobe and room for a travel cot if required. The main bedroom also includes a television for those late-night movies!
The smaller twin bedroom also benefits from a built-in wardrobe, and linen and duvets for all beds is included, with beds made-up for your arrival.
Star Cottage may be booked for either full weeks or short breaks lasting 3 or 4 days. In either case a variety of start and end dates are available, subject to any existing bookings – if you have any non-standard requirements please get in touch and we will try very hard to accommodate your needs.
Well-behaved pets are welcome at Star Cottage, and please note that electricity is INCLUDED in the price – no nasty extra bills!. Towels (2 per guest) are provided, and broadband Wi-Fi is available
We visited Star Cottage for a short break at the end of May with elderly mother in law. We found the cottage cozy, comfortable, and well equipped. Mum was able to sit in the lounge and enjoy the peace and quiet whilst watching lots of interesting things happening on the river & enjoyed watching the antics of the ducks geese and swans but particularly enjoyed seeing the herons. The shops are a easy short walk away and we enjoyed shopping in Roy's of Wroxham the '" worlds largest village store'', walking along the river, boat trips, and the Bure Valley Railway. We could park right up to the front door which was very conveinient for elderly mum in law.
Star Cottage is compact, it has everything that you need for a comfortable stay. The property was very clean with comfortable beds . The location was the best that we have stayed in at Wroxham, the patio doors gave us a great view of the river and the wild life, we had a heron look in through the window, lots of
swans,geese, 2 Egyptian geese, ducks and 2 otters were seen on the lawn, our 2 dogs were fascinated. Wroxham is a great centre for a holiday, we went to Norwich, Cromer,Horsey and Caister. We had an interesting trip on a large pleasure boat, The Queen of the Broads which is moored very close to Star cottage.
The weather was sunny but with a very cold wind so after a cold day out we were very pleased to return to the warmth and comfort of Star Cottage.We would love to return again, it was a very good find.
