Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Horning - Seymour Cottage

2 double bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4

Seymour Cottage is a cosy Victorian cottage centrally located in the picturesque Norfolk Broads village of Horning and is just across the road from the river. Features include entrance hall, bathroom, open plan lounge/kitchen, 2 double bedrooms, TV, CD Player, DVD player, electric storage heating, front courtyard garden, secluded upstairs patio, use of small private staithe on the river, private car parking. COTTAGE SWAPS CONSIDERED.

What can I do here?: The three main attractions are the Norfolk Broads (rivers and lakes) with rural countryside, the historic cathedral city of Norwich and the wonderful sandy Norfolk Coastline including the bustling seaside resorts of Cromer and Great Yarmouth. All this is less than 30 minutes drive from the cottage.

What are the Norfolk Broads?: The Norfolk Broads are a unique combination of slow meandering rivers with beautiful lakes (locally known as Broads). The river banks include thatched cottages with immaculate lawns (and gardens), reed beds (used for roof thatching) and many pretty staithes (a local word for a place to moor your boat). The best way to enjoy this wonderful National Park is either on-foot or by boat. Boats can be either hired (by the hour or day) or take an organised trip - Norfolk boats are either motor cruisers or traditional wooden sailing yachts.

Lovely, comfortable home in brilliant location

  • 5 of 5

Cosy and clean, and very well equipped. Right in the centre of Horning so convenient for the shops, pubs and boat yards. The new Sea food restaurant in the village is fab, highly recommend a visit. Having a parking space is also great. As well as a day out in a boat we also visited Norwich (lovely city especially the old part and the Cathedral) and had a day touring along the North coast. All in all a lovely holiday and we look forward to returning!

Small but sweet

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is small but very sweet and exceptionally clean and tidy. The kitchen has everything you need, the only drawback is the shower is very small. The location is good with the New Inn just across the road and other pubs and restaurants nearby. Ruth leaves lots of useful information for her visitors and arival instructions were also very clear and helpful.

Perfect Broads location.

  • 5 of 5

Seymour cottage is a charming little cottage in an ideal location for exploring the Broads and the Norfolk coast, clean comfortable and well equipped the cottage could not be faulted. A bonus for me was the New Inn with its Gluten free menu, just 37 seconds from taking the key out of the front door to stepping inside the pub. Also recommended are the Ferry Inn and the local fish and chip shop. Not recommended is the Swan Inn poor meal and poor service.

With its cottages and shops grouped around the village green beside the staithe and its three Riverside Inns, Horning on the River Bure is one of the prettiest and most popular villages on the Norfolk Broads. It is centrally located for the whole of the Norfolk Broads where you can enjoy boating, fishing, nature trails and glorious scenery. The nearby historic cathedral city of Norwich has an interesting castle, alley-ways to explore, museums, theatres, restaurants, night life and great shopping. Less than 10 miles away are the beautiful sandy beaches of the Norfolk Coastline where with so many miles of sand a secluded spot can always be found! At one of these spots In Winter you can see the baby seals being born on the beach

Other Activities: boating, beaches, gardens, craft shops, tea rooms, leisure centre

Golf: Golf at nearby Sprowston Manor Hotel, approximately 5 miles away
