Bure Cottage is set in the exclusive Peninsular Marina by the River Bure at Wroxham, Capital of the Broads. The romantic self-catering cottage mostly faces the sun, a dinghy's distance from a private dyke with stunning bedroom views of the main river. Re-decorated, new carpets with underlay though-out, and new leather sofas fitting . New double glazing to be fitted November 2018. Free wifi and secure parking. Managed by the owner, with freezer and extra freeview TV fitted in the twin-bedroom and free wifi & secure parking. Sleeps four with all comforts. Beds are made on arrival day - and unlike many of the other cottages there, prices include everything, no surprises for electricity. Weekly rental is Saturday-to-Saturday; short breaks Friday, Saturday & Sunday evenings; or mid-week Tuesday to Friday. Contact us about short breaks. Prices are very competitive, especially out of season. Sorry, no pets or smoking. Enjoy the lawn river frontage to watch boats, fish, or just relax with a bottle of wine. Marvel at swans and ducks swimming towards you - and at sunset, unwind on the decked terrace gazing at picnic-boats lazily sailing home. The Peninsular Complex is a working marina and often a boat will be moored outside the cottage. However, guests are free to sit and fish anywhere onsite. Finish your day dining in the rustic boathouse onsite bar and bistro, with a massive range of real ales. tranquil riverside gardens are perfect to lounge among ornamental grasses, flowers and willows. Watch boats chug by, hire your own, or take a river cruise on one of the many trips among Britain's largest protected wetlands. Magical waterways and lakes dotted with quaint unspoiled villages, windmills and old riverside pubs to explore. A paradise for nature lovers. The famous 400-year-old Wroxham Bridge and village centre is just 5-minutes stroll. With pubs, restaurants, fish & chips, launderette, Roy's shops, McDonald's and railway station. The ideal Norfolk location for a tranquil holiday for children or the not so young. So much to see and do, and close to the beaches of Great Yarmouth and the medieval city of Norwich.

About Nigel Mckay
Although I was born in Luton, I've been in China for over 20-years. However, I love Norfolk, have properties and a boat there, and want to spend more time there!

Why Nigel Mckay chose Wroxham
I love the Norfolk Broads and being close to the water!
What makes this Cottage unique
I like to take my boat out and experience Norfolk's rural landscape and wildlife.
Nice quiet stay.
Enjoyable stay. Bring your own towels. Would recommend.
Relaxing and comfortable.
Arrived to find a lovely surprise awaiting us to welcome us. First impressions were good and the ground level space was clean and looked comfortable.
Upstairs was fresh and clean. Nice decor with homely touches.
All the comforts of home and we had a lovely stay. Planning to go back some time again soon.
Maragret, thanks, glad you have a good time. I do try to do the best I can!
Peaceful holiday stay, great location
After a very busy European tour, staying at this Wroxham apartment/cottage was fabulous. The location is perfect, easy walk into the village full of restaurants, "Roy's" stores including a huge grocery and legit English pub. The cottage is basic so bring your paper and bath towels and be sure to look into every cabinet since I found the freezer two days after arriving. Plates, glasses, silverware, pots and pans, toaster, microwave, stove/oven, small frig and freezer, and hot water pot available. Discovered the coffee press after a few days of instant coffee, and no food items. (i.e. salt and pepper), although owner left a Welcome gift. We loved the swans, herons, and geese and all of the holiday boats coming and going. It's quiet at night and the bed was comfortable. "The Shed" pub next door was open but did not serve any food. If you stand by it, you get the best internet. We used the local bus to go into Norwich one day and it was cheap and very easy! We also rented a small motor boat (Broad Tours) to cruise the river to Horning and it was a great, relaxing time. We cooked simple meals most of the time but our last night we enjoyed a wonderful evening at the Wroxham Hotel across the bridge.
Nigel, the owner, was very available but once we arrived, everything was quite easy to figure out. Some neighbors quiet, some chatty. As for transportation, we rented a car for the whole time, but you could get by using buses to the Coast, Norwich and even London, which we did for one night, then bus to Heathrow. Thank you, Nigel, for offering up your sweet place on the Bure River, The Broads, Wroxham, Norfolk. UK. :) Greg and Carol from USA.
Thanks for your feedback, it's important our overseas visitors have a good time. I've tried to include everything a guest would need!
Relaxing location, wildlife fantastic
Comfortable, clean and well equipped. Stairs and upper floors need attention VERY squeaky and creeky. Although warned, the large boat moored outsiders property spoilt view. Would definitely visit area again.
Thanks for a positive feedback. Sorry about the boat, but it is a marina!
On paper, place looks nice but in reality its a different matter. Probably just our personal expectations but although clean and in a good location, wasnt overly comfortable and we cut short our stay. May suit others, but definitely wasnt for us as there were too many niggly problems. Also there is a boat which appears to be permanently moored outside, making sitting in the lounge feel very claustaphobic and blocking any views.
Sorry you were disappointed. I'm constantly trying to improve the cottage in all ways possible and most guests tell me it's very comfortable. I have no control outside the cottage, but can vouch that the boat is low and doesn't spoil the views.
Good location, easy access for Wroxham. Compact cottage, comfortable enough for a long weekend for four adults. Disappointing to be asked to bring own towels, cold tap on bath didn't work, small things you might expect to be there (like a little salt and pepper, for example) weren't.. The marina was full to bursting, so there were large-ish boats moored right outside the house, which was slightly disconcerting, but that could just be the time of year.
18-miles to the sands of Great Yarmouth
Only 10-miles from Norwich International airport
Just 5-minutes walk to Wroxham Village and 5-miles from the fine City of Norwich.
