Waterside Retreat - Comments

What our visitors think of Waterside Retreat:



  1. Waterside Retreat is a cracking property ideally located and I will have no hesitation in recommending it to my friends and colleagues.
  2. We're back and this time with better weather. Lovely boat ride to Thorne. We caught a few fish, haad a lovely BBQ so basically a good time for all.
  3. "Wow" what a fantastic house, the website doesn't do it justice. Fabulous house with all mod cons. Was here for my brothers 50th celebrations. Would definitely recommend to friends. Hope to come back again. Thank you.
  4. It could not have been a more idyllic combination - a dream house on the Broads, a motor boat for exploring the Broads and unexpectedly good weather allowing us to dine on the decking. Than you.
  5. Rented as a family celebration for a 50th birthday. We all had a fantastic time. The house coundn't be better. Very spacious and comfortable. Everything we could have wished for was supplied. Than you!!
  6. Perfect setting and house for the families to get together to celebrate Grandma's 80th birthday. Three generations together! A fantastic, spacious house with the bonus of the waterfront setting. The rowing boat was great as was the 12 seater we hired from Wroxham. We will definately be recommending this house to others.
  7. Celebrated a 30th birthday here, was a great location. The train from Norwich was ideal. All had a great time and will probably come back.
  8. We rented Waterside Retreat and 2 others as a group, but used this house as a base. It was perfect for all of us ranging from 34 years down to 8 weeks old! A perfect mini break to celebrate new year. Thank you!
  9. The house exceeded all our expectations, plenty of room to be together or have a quiet time. Wroxham on the doorstep. Good food & good company.
  10. We've had a fabulous long weekend here at Waterside Retreat for Lucy's birthday. Hired a boat from George & Sons and went ot Horning and had lunch in the Swan Inn - really lovely. The house is fantastic, we will definately be back again - hopefully with some better weather.
  11. What a lovely home you have and what an enjoyable stay we have had in it. We would be happy to recommend it to friends.
  12. Great house, great location, great accomodation. Had a great time. Thanks for the use of this GREAT HOUSE.
  13. Very enjoyable property & dock. Quiet with easy access to all amenities in the area. Really made our first visit to Norfolk fantastic.
  14. On arrival we were pleasantly surprised to find such a lovely welcoming holiday cottage!!! We had a lovely weekend and madde good use of the patio and dinghy! We will definately recommend this to friends and don't be surprised if you see us again.
  15. We had a lovely time in this fantastic house and Wroxham is a great base to explore Norfolk from. Visitors should not miss visiting Ranworth where you can climb to the top of the church tower for fantastic views and then walk along the broad boardwalks to the Broads Wildlife Visitor Centre.
  16. We had a lovely week’s holiday, weather was wonderful. But not as wonderful as your lovely home, we were absolutely amazed. What a beautiful home. Loved every minute we were here. Some of our family came for the day and they loved it. We will certainly think about coming back. Thank you very much.
  17. Lovely house, beautifully decorated. Really enjoyed staying in such a lovely home. Enjoyed the dinghy but our rowing skills were shown up by 7 year old Jake next door! Hope to be back one day!
  18. Enjoyed time in North Sea at Sea Palling. Sampled the delights of Norwich City centre and enjoyed the pedestrianised sections to the max. Great stay, thoroughly recommend. Ideal for a family with 9 boys.
  19. It has been an extreme pleasure and honor to enjoy this beautiful, spacious and luxorious property for all eleven members of our company. Everything had been well taken care of before our arrival. Lovely garden, wonderful rooms and excellent boating experience is what you should expect. We will 100% be back in the very near future. Thanks galore for everything you prepared for us!
  20. A beautifully spacious and clean house with all amenities. Superb location, a home away from home. We'll hopefully be back.
  21. We (a group of ten friends) really loved the house. We missed having a boat ride because of the weather but the warm, clean, inviting house more than made up for the bad weather. Would recommend for big groups!
  22. A great family break - really enjoyed having the boat.
  23. The fishing in the basin was excellent, as good as I’ve had in 25 years or so of Wroxham holidays. I therefore had little need of the rowing boat, although it was handy to have it available.
  24. We are delighted to offer our latest property, Waterside Retreat, a well-appointed detached house available from February 2012. Able to sleep 11 people comfortably with 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.
  25. Really lovely house and location. Ideal for family get together for 30th birthday. May come again sometime.
  26. Wonderful house. Wow. We loved the dinghy and my little boy caught his first fish. Some lovely memories. We would love to come back next year.
  27. Good few days here, we particularly enjoyed using the paddle boat. Lovely spacious house. Thank you for sharing the house with us.
  28. Second time staying in this superb house. Reasonable fishing, sweetcorn seems to work better than maggots. Early morning and late afternoon seems to be better for fishing. Hired a day cruiser for 2 days which made the package complete. Overall very enjoyable.
