Watersedge - Hill Common, Hickling, Norfolk, The Norfolk Broads, England - Sleeps 9


Watersedge is a beautiful white thatched cottage with wonderful views sitting on the banks of Hickling Broad in Norfolk, England. Pets are welcomed. The cottage is large with four bedrooms and will sleep one to seven people. There is a smart kitchen, dinning room and large sitting room, two bathrooms and a utility room. Some of the ceilings are quite low in the older part of the house built 300 years ago with lots of character including the old bread oven.

In the surrounding area we have two really nice pubs, The Grey Hound and the Pleasure Boat with good food, both in walking distance or rowing distance. There is a rowing boat for you to use, table tennis, bowls, deck chairs for sitting in the garden and bikes.

We have the Norfolk Museum near by and the Nature Reserve just along the road. Hickling Broad is a nature reserve, so if you enjoy bird watching or fishing this is an ideal location. For the more energetic, sailing, rowing, kayaking, canoeing, paddle boarding, you can rent a motor launch from Whispering Reads. The beach at Sea paling or Waxham with lovely sand is four miles away. Waxham also has a fascinating museum in one of the longest thatched barns in the country and give you a real feeling for the history in the area.

Norwich is seventeen miles way with the lovely Norwich Castle and Airport. Great Yarmouth is twelve miles and is famous for its Pleasure Beach.
