Willow Bend - Wroxham, Norfolk, The Norfolk Broads, England - Sleeps 4

Willow Bend

Willow Bend is the owner's much loved waterside retreat that sits in an idyllic position right in the heart of the Norfolk Broads in the popular bustling town of Wroxham. Accommodating four guests, this pretty part thatched cottage has two bedrooms and is highly desirable for couples (one or two), making it perfect for a romantic break away or getting together with friends.

The cottage was completely re-built back in 2013 with all new furnishings and provides a comfy retreat that affords an exceptional position right alongside the river just minutes from Wroxham Bridge - guests can enjoy sitting in the lounge and watching the world drift past on the River Bure!

Accommodation is all on one level once inside (there are just a few steps leading up to the bungalow) and guests are able to drive directly to the front door for easy access. Once there, Wroxham's excellent amenities are just a twenty minute walk (or five minute chug on a day boat), making Willow Bend ideal for those who prefer to avoid using the car whilst away. Known as the 'Capital of the Broads', Wroxham is a popular tourist destination with the largest village store in the world being one of its claims to fame. It also offers a good selection of pubs, restaurants and shops.

With its own private mooring alongside the cottage (and slipway), guests are welcome to bring their own boat, kayak or canoe and have access to miles of waterways that are teeming with wildlife. There are lovely riverside walks, and for those who enjoy fishing, you're in for a real treat with direct access to the river. Alternatively, sit back on the decking that surrounds the property and enjoy a glass of wine or relax on the lawn with a good book or picnic and soak up the riverside setting.

Willow Bend is an ideal spot for enjoying everything that the Norfolk Broads has to offer and is also within driving distance of Norfolk's beautiful coastline for those who would like a day on the beach; or the bustling historic City of Norwich for historians and shoppers alike.

With so much to offer on the doorstep and so many attractions within easy reach, you are sure to have a memorable holiday at Willow Bend and not want to leave at the end of your stay!
