The area of Wroxham is actually made up of two villages - Wroxham and Hoveton, split by a low bridge that spans the River Bure. Wroxham is often referred to as the 'Capital of the Norfolk Broads' and is an ideal location to stay at for a variety of reasons:

  • There are plenty of places to eat and drink locally!
  • Wroxham boasts Roys store which claims to the “largest village store in the Country”.  Here you will find all your grocery needs with many products being sourced locally as well as a large department store – plenty of retail opportunities to indulge in and only a 5 minute walk
  • Within a 15 minute drive you could be at one of the glorious sandy Norfolk beaches or if city life is more your thing, then you could be in historic Norwich with a wealth of shopping opportunities and tourist attractions.
  • The Broads is well known for its’ fishing activity – you should expect to find perch, pike, bream, rudd, eel and tench in the waters here.  Fishing (subject to season and licence) can be enjoyed from the decking at all our properties.
  • We would obviously be remiss if we didn’t mention the joy of just being out on the water.  Within a couple of minutes walk from each property, it is easy to hire a boat by the hour, half day, day or longer. If you fancy a boat trip but without you being the Captain, there are a number of organised boat trips which leave from the centre of Wroxham or from nearby Horning

Hopefully, this just gives you a taste of what is available in the local area – full details of all of these, and more, can be found under the “things to do”  tab on the website.


Who are we


We are a family run business who enjoyed holidays on the Norfolk Broads so much during our childhood that now we have children we have introduced our children and their friends to the fun of the Norfolk Broads and exploring the many special places to see in East Anglia.

We have decided to make our homes available for self catering holidays so that we can share our love of the Norfolk Broads with you.   This has proved so popular that we now have a number of properties which we have tried to make a “home from home” and we offer a variety of short and full week breaks.

We hope you enjoy our places as much as we do and we look forward to welcoming you to one of them soon. Look at the comments from others who have stayed. Each place has its own comments page, for instance Sunset Haven comments.


Note: This website presents our 5 properties previously on wroxhamcottage.co.uk and hovetoncottage.co.uk.
