Overview

About the property

perfect for holidays, long weekends, business trips and one night stopovers.

The Ramblers is in the village of Brundall, 6 miles east of the historical city of Norwich and in the heart of the Norfolk Broads. The accommodation is completely self contained and forms the ground floor front part of the building (the owners home is at the rear of the building). Situated on a quiet private road, the property is close to the village railway station with links into Norwich, Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft. Norwich is just a 10 train minute journey. Road links are good as Brundall is located just off the main A47 and the village also benefits from regular bus services.

With two bedrooms, the master features a King size bed, TV with free view, dressing table, double wardrobe, a hairdryer and blackout curtains. A travel cot can also be provided if required. The second bedroom has a zip link bed so can be set up as a twin or double room depending on your preference. This room also features a TV with free view, dressing table, wardrobe, a hairdryer and blackout curtains.

The kitchen diner is fully equipped with everything you will need. Including gas hob, electric oven, dishwasher, microwave, crockery, glasses, cups and cutlery. Off the kitchen there is a utility room where you will find a washing machine, iron and ironing board. A child's highchair can also be provided if required.

The light and spacious lounge features two leather sofas, a large screen TV with free view and streamed movies and sports, a PlayStation 3, a piano, and access to a patio area. (Please note the owner needs access through the patio to enter his home at the rear of the property, however from a socialising perspective it will be solely for the guests use).

The newly fitted family bathroom has a P-shaped bath, rainfall mixer shower, sink vanity unit and shaver socket.

At the front of the property is a large private drive with parking for up to 6 vehicles.

The accommodation also benefits from its own independent wifi, which is for the sole use of guests.

As mentioned before, the property is well located with excellent road, rail and bus links. However the village of Brundall also boasts pubs, restaurants as well as numerous other shops and services.

About Matt

My name is Matt, I am married to Ae and have lived in this beautiful part of the country for most of my life. After a long career in the recruitment industry I decided to make a change in 2014 which enabled us to provide care for my ageing mother and develop this property.

We are a sociable couple with varying interests. Ae is passionate about her Thai food and is a great cook, I just enjoy eating it! We both enjoy travelling to new destinations and often enjoy short European breaks as well as our annual pilgrimage to Thailand.

Letting The Ramblers as self contained and self catering accommodation was something we only started in February 2017. It is something we can do together which we both enjoy. It feels great to get all the positive feedback from our guests.

Why Matt chose Norwich

Firstly the area. Brundall is one of Norfolk's prime village locations. Situated in the heart of the Norfolk Broads and yet just a 10 minute train journey into beautiful Norwich and just off the main A47. Being 6 miles east of Norwich we are also well located for Great Yarmouth and the varied Norfolk coastline.

Secondly the village. Brundall is a lovely village with lots of facilities.

Thirdly The Avenue. The property is situated on a very pretty and peaceful private road. The only sound we have in the mornings is bird song.

Finally the house. The property is on a generous plot and is divided into two completely independent living areas. The Ramblers is on the ground floor at the front of the building and in itself is a large, modern and well equipped home from home offering outside space as well for our guests. My home is situated at the rear ground floor and on the first floor of the building, with its own garden and separate patio area. Finally, at the front there is a large driveway for up to 6 cars, we have just one so there's plenty of room for guests!

What makes this apartment unique

In truth I am repeating what has already been said. It's great to be so close to the City, yet in a lovely village location.

Home from home

  • 5 of 5

From the time of booking Matt was very attentive and phoned me to see how I wanted the rooms set up. We had a warm welcome from Matt on arrival, he handed us the keys and let us settle in before showing us around. The property is spacious, beautifully decorated with everything we needed and it was spotless. We were very comfortable and it was always warm when we returned from our chilly days out. The welcome pack was the best I have had with fresh fruit, a bonus. The village of Brundall is lovely and is a great base from which explore Norfolk.

Fantastic accommodation and hospitality

  • 5 of 5

This was a short 2 night stay and we were very impressed with both the accommodation and hospitality from Matt.

He was there to greet us and talk us through the house, wi-fi etc and made us most welcome.

The house was perfect with 2 bedrooms and looked very well presented. The kitchen space was large and was fitted out with what looked like very new utensils, pots and pans, plates, mugs....in fact anything you would need.

It was a nice touch that there was tea, coffee, milk, eggs, bread, marmalade, butter, orange juice supplied.

The outside area was small, but there was a table and to be honest it was too wet and cold, but in the summer could be nice to sit out in.

TV / lounge and wi-fi worked well.

The bathroom was shared and was well equipped with a nice ceiling rose shower over the bath - it was a good shower!

Couldn't have asked for a better place and would recommend to anyone who requires accommodation in the area. 10/10
