Description of Idleways Riverside Cottage

Idleways is a self-catering holiday home situated on the bank of the River Thurne in the heart of the Norfolk Broads National Park. It is surrounded by open farmland front and back, with uninterrupted views up and down the River Thurne and 120ft of riverbank. This is a prime fishing location, with excellent nature and bird watching. The Thurne leads upstream to Martham Broad and Somerton Staithe, and via Kendal Dyke, to the famous sailing sites of Hicking Broad and Horsey Mere. A mile downstream is the Norfolk village and Broads holiday centre of Potter Heigham. Here the infamous ancient low bridge over the river prevents the larger hire craft from reaching us at the Upper Thurne, and so provides much quieter and less commercialized river traffic. We enjoy a remote location, with only one near neighbour, and is reached on foot by a fifteen minute walk along the NE riverbank from Potter Heigham, but is best accessed by boat. Either take a 5 minute river taxi form Potter Heigham, or better still, hire a small craft for your stay to enable you to fully explore the Norfolk Broads National Park. The house was fully refurbished in 2005, and like all the Thurne homes is of wooden construction, but with mains water and electricity. The facilities include: -Double bedroom with en suite bathroom -Second smaller double room -Children's bunk room with 4 beds -Separate shower room/sink/toilet -Large lounge with patio doors onto decking overlooking the river, and dining area -Fully fitted kitchen with cooker, fridge, freezer, microwave, washing machine in shed -large tackle shed with sink -120ft riverbank, large garden, plenty of mooring space For further details, visit our website, or phone/email for a brochure and availability. We'd love to hear from you!
