About Whispering Reeds Cottage

Whispering Reeds Cottage is a stunning waterfront property located in the picturesque village of Horning in the Norfolk Broads. With a river at the end of the garden, it's own five person hot tub, an outdoor kitchen and barbeque and two decking areas with romantic atmospheric lighting, this contemporary holiday home offers comfort, style and a touch of indulgence. The decked quay at the end of the garden is perfect for a peaceful drink, or anglers can enjoy a spot of fishing. Inside, the owners have ensured that you will want for nothing. Not only will cooks love the exceptionally well equipped kitchen, but the property also boasts a wood burning stove (free logs provided), Smart TVs in every bedroom, a Wii, Xbox and Amazon Alexa. The glass sliding doors from the open plan living area enables you to make the most of the uninterupted views of the river and garden, whilst the glass balcony and seating area off the master bedroom is the perfect secluded spot for an evening sundowner. Sleeping six guests in three bedrooms, Whispering Reeds Cottage is perfect for families or couples.

Just a ten minute walk away you will find restaurants, cafes, bars and shops sitting along the banks of the River Bure in the pretty village of Horning. The best way to admire the stunning scenery and abundance of wildlife is to hire a boat or hop on board the Southern Comfort Paddle Steamer. Water sports enthusiasts can enjoy a paddle boarding lesson or simply watch the boating action from one of the riverside pubs. If you would prefer to explore the area on dry land there are plenty of walking and cycling routes that take you around the village and into the nearby countryside.

If you want to venture further afield, just four miles away in the village of Wroxham you will find a wider selection of fine eateries and shops as well as a miniature world's model museum and a steam train which takes you to the market town of Aylsham. Kids will love a day out at the treetop adventure park at BeWILDerwood or the The Dinosaur Park at Lenwade, whilst less than half an hour away, the vast stretch of sand at Winterton-on-Sea will satisfy any beach cravings. The fantastic cathedral, museums and shopping in the city of Norwich are just 11 miles away, and there are numerous National Trust properties including the Blickling Estate, Felbrigg Hall and Gardens and Horsey Windpump nearby.

Stunning at any time of the year, Whispering Reeds Cottage is available for bookings all year round.
