This recently refurbished, well maintained cottage provides you with everything you need for a little R & R. Unwind in the restful living room, entertain in the kitchen/dining room, sleep-in in one of the 5 bedrooms, chill with your favourite book in the garden, or just watch the world go by from the sun-room upstairs. The property has wi fi. Downstairs has been made wheelchair friendly including a downstairs bedroom with en-suite. The 150 year old house still retains an original flint wall, lending character to the partly beamed home. The finishes are clean and modern and there is more than enough space to house 10 guests comfortably. Dedicated parking for 3 vehicles. Local shops and 3 village pubs - all within walking distance, and all serve excellent food. Within a short drive are beaches, Pettitts Animal Adventure Park (great for kids) and the RSPB Reserve, though you can just as easily watch the local wildlife on the River Yare from the prime location of the upper sun-room at Briars.

About ALLAN MILTON
Briars is our family owned and run property and we handle all aspects of the booking ourselves. We have grown up spending a lot of time in the Norfolk area and can help make recommendations of things to do - if you need a helping hand! We know what standards we expect from rental properties when we go away, and we hope to exceed your expectations with our cottage.
ALLAN MILTON purchased this House in 2006
Why ALLAN MILTON chose Broadland
Our family has always been in this region and so when this property came up a few years ago, we jumped on the opportunity of having a holiday cottage in the area. We like to think that other people will be able to enjoy the things that Norfolk has to offer and that we have so enjoyed over the years - the great farm produce, the abundant nature, the history, the Broads, the beaches and the fish and chips!
What makes this House unique
Having the Broads on your doorstep helps you to unwind. 3 local pubs within walking distance is very convenient! Plenty of lovely walks to do in the area. Close enough to the coast, with the added bonus of being able to escape from the crowds to your own little haven in the evening.

Lovely relaxing break
The Briars is all & more than it is advertised as. We had a brilliant weekend & there was plenty of room for all 8 of us. The games room kept the younger members occupied whilst those slightly older enjoyed watching the boats pass from the sun terrace. We loved our stay.
Stunning inside and out
Beautiful location. Exceeded our expectations. Our party ranged from 11yrs old to 66yrs old. This house was ideal for all of our needs. Lots of space and well equipped.
Thank you very much , been in after boat trip and place looked nice thanks again Allan
Great house with awesome views! Fantastic value for a weekend getaway
Some really good features in this property like the games room and upstairs sun room with views out over the river. Everything was as described and we had a brilliant weekend.
Beautiful house in lovely surroundings
3 generations of us stayed at the house there was something for everyone. Well equipped and very clean. Beautiful views across the river to open fields. Only a few minutes walk to 2 good pubs. Very enjoyable stay just wish we could have stayed a bit longer.
Verry nice place..will be back soon.
Nice place and welcome house.
There are plenty of beaches to explore - all within a short drive away (as little as 15 minutes). Great Yarmouth is the obvious choice with a family as there are so many things to do along the front (donkey rides, fairgrounds, arcades, leisure centre) but there are a wealth of quieter beaches that can be found to the north. Lots of lovely walks to do in the area - in the house you will find a booklet of things to do including the number for a local walking tour.
Nearest Airport: Norwich 30km.
Railway: Reedham 1km.
Ferry: Harwich 130km.
Use of car is advisable and recommended - unless you arrive by boat(!). Even if you plan to do lots of walking, having a car is useful for any shopping or exploring you may need to do.
Great Yarmouth is approximately 13km and has many attractions - though it will get very busy in peak summer periods. Norwich is within half an hour's drive and is a very interesting, historical city. The Cathedral is worth visiting, as are the medieval castles and antique areas. There are also wildlife reserves and parks close to the cottage - suitable for all the family!
