“Superb Weekend on the Broads”
Reviewed 23 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Our first impression of Waterside Retreat is the fantastic position it is in, backing onto the river in a quiet road, yet a short walk from the little town which has everything you could possibly need.
The house was that it was absolutely spotless and a bit like a tardis with large hall, kitchen and lounge and even an annexe downstairs with bedrooms and a bathroom that were tucked away.
The kitchen had and living areas were spacious and happily accommodated 11 adults all weekend without feeling cramped.It has to be said that the kitchen had every mod con and a full range of tableware ...a real home from home.
The bedrooms were well proportioned with plenty of drawers and cupboards and we were lucky enough to stay in the Master bedroom which had the most stunning views and a well appointed shower room with the most fantastic shower cubicle.
Highly recommended

“Fantastic Holiday rental”
Reviewed 21 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

I went to waterside retreat with my sons, daughter in law and grandchildren and we have such a brilliant time, the property is excellent and you could not wish for more, the decor is to a very high standard and has everything you need and I cannot think of any negative to say. We have book the property again and cannot wait to return. I would highly recommend waterside retreat, you would not be disappointed.

“Relax in luxury....Waterside Retreat”
Reviewed 1 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

FAB weekend at Waterside Retreat in Wroxham! The house is stunning and backs straight on to the Broads . 10 of us recently enjoyed a special birthday together at this lovely house. It is very well equipped with everything you will ever need, it's like a home from home....but posher! A short walk takes you into the heart of Wroxham with its lovely shops and also where you can hire a boat which you can then moor outside the house you have hired! Great fun! Waterside provides plenty of room for all and you can enjoy the sunsets by watching from the comfort of the outside decking or the house conservatory. It provides a great central base to explore Norfolk and the local shops are definitely worth a visit. We all throughly enjoyed the Weekend and all hope to visit again soon

“Absolutely Fabulous”
Reviewed 20 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

person found this review helpful

11 ladies, former Wrens, celebrating their 42nd year since joining, met here the weekend after Easter. The house is very deceptive from the outside, but once inside .....wow!!! It was amazing, so light, airy and so very spacious. The décor, fittings and attention to detail gave us all that homely feeling and we had a thoroughly good weekend. The decking outside was a treat, though we did have some rain but it was all so very peaceful. Would have no hesitation in recommending this to family and friends, you have to see it to believe it all - even has the largest sofa I have seen!!!!! - and I can truly say that you wouldn't be at all disappointed.
