“Fishermans Dream”
Reviewed 4 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

My wife and i have stayed at Kingfisher Lure twice and just spent new year at Swan Cottage, both places were very well equiped and very clean . for the fisherman you cant beat it roach and perch one a chuck and plenty of good pike smallest i caught was 13lb biggest was 20lb 5oz heard that a 35lb was caught very close to cottage. At the end of dyke you can hire great fishing boats from George Smith Marine for £40 per day year round, well worth it for a great day out.
All in all a great place for a week away I can't wait to go back.

“Amazing riverside views”
Reviewed 3 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We stayed at Swan Cottage for a long weekend as we have family in the local area. I stayed with my husband, two children and my parents, so in total 6 of us. The cottage had ample room for us all, was clean and tidy. and provided everything we needed. My parents stayed in the attic room with en-suite facilities. The stairway to the room takes some getting used to as it is steep, but once you work it out and get familiar it is fine. We enjoyed being right on the riverside and for the children to watch the boats and feed the ducks and swan. We felt safe that we could lock the doors securely so that the children could not get out onto the deck unsupervised. A great location for getting into Wroxham and being able to enjoy the local area.

“Right at the water's edge”
Reviewed 7 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Went for a few days away with our son, his wife and our two granddaughters. Could not fault the property. Terraced house with a patio at the back right onto the water's edge, with a parking place at the front.

It was quite spacious for the 6 of us and was very well equipped. The two girls (9 and 11) were very excited about the attic room, with its own en suite and spiral staircase, although you did have to be very careful going up and down it.
We had our own boat tied up out the back to use during our stay and we did get lots of fun out of it. When the girls rowed we all went round in circles (well it was their first time)
The cottage also came with its own pet -- a resident heron who always arrived when we wondered out onto the patio (and who liked prawns!)
It was a bit expensive but we expected to pay it for the middle of the Norfolk Broads.
Only criticism was that we couldn't go into the property until 4pm on the day of arrival and had to leave by 10am on the last day..
