Double glazed French doors open onto your own South East facing patio, complete with chairs and picnic table for your use, with fine river views - an ideal place to while away the mornings while watching the activity on the river. In the evening the light weight chairs can be moved round and placed by the kitchen window to enjoy the evening sun and in summer this is a great place to watch returning day boats to the nearby marina and other boats making their way under the nearby Wroxham Bridge or to fish in season.
The cottage is on the Peninsula private marina site that offers shared gardens, a private mooring if required right outside the cottage, and fishing from just outside the patio doors in season. Pike, bream and perch are regularly landed within 10 feet of the cottage door and wild swans are nearly always on the river nearby.
Hoveton village centre is a pleasant 10 minute walk away with a wide range of shops including the infamous Roy's store, cafes, pubs and restaurants. Favourites eateries nearby for guests not wishing to use the self catering option include the The Old Mill, Yim Siam Thai, Wherryman's, The River Kitchen, Hotel Wroxham and King's Head Cavery. Takeaways include Thai, Chinese and a choice of fish and chips such as Ken's. There is always McDonalds' for the kids!
Tour boats and dayboat hire are available less than five minutes walk from your door to explore the magic of the Norfolk Broads by river. Try Wroxham Boat Hire, Broads Tours or The Canoe Man as some of the many means to get afloat locally while based at the cottage.
The fine city of Norwich, that can be accessed easily by train, bus, car or park and ride at Sprowston, is about 8 miles away for shopping and theatre trips while the sandy beaches of the Norfolk coast are about 14 miles away. Cromer and Great Yarmouth are nearby too for traditional seaside activities.
Other attractions include the Bure Valley Railway, Hoveton Hall, Blickling Hall, Wroxham Barns, BeWILDerwood, Go Ape and various zoos such as Africa Alive!

We can advise where boats can be launched locally if trailed. There is a picnic bench, seats four, for your use.

There are numerous day boat hire locations and skippered tour boat trips available within a short walk of the cottage - less than 10 minutes. You can even moor your day boat outside the cottage to collect your cool box without carrying it to the boat yard.
Connections are good - apart from road there is a park and ride just to the north of Norwich, a railway station in Wroxham and good bus routes.
