Detached cottage with woodburner, situated on the Norfolk/Suffolk border close to the River Waveney. Good boating and fishing facilities within 500 yards. Shop and Post Office 1 mile, 2 pubs close by.

A detached single-storey property, this is a homely cottage situated in the East Norfolk village of Geldeston. The understated exterior of the property belies the period-style interior, with its exposed timber beams and huge brick fireplace with a warming wood burner. The bedrooms are both restful retreats, whilst the tranquil garden can be accessed through the dining room and is mainly set to lawn with a table and chairs provided for al fresco dining.

The sleepy village of Geldeston lies on the River Waveney and is separated from the navigable sections of the Norfolk Broads by a historic lock. There are two village pubs within half-a-mile of the property, as well as a convenient shop and post office just one mile away.

Just 3 miles downriver from Geldeston, the market town of Beccles is a delightful place from which to hire riverboats for the day. The town’s numerous small squares are linked with narrow streets and lined with a fantastic array of independent shops as well as a great selection of places to eat. Continue another 10 miles east to Lowestoft, with its delightful stretch of sandy beach backed by restaurants, cafes, tennis courts, and a bowling green.

A nice cottage, handy for touring Norfolk and Suffolk

Reviewed by Paul 10th August 2019

As the other reviews there was coziness and comfort, peace and quiet, a lovely pub and wildlife in the area. We were surprised how well stocked the cottage was even simple things such as a clothes airer and kitchen bits made life much simpler. Highly Recommended.

Wonderful home. Cosy, comfortable and had everything we needed for 4 adults and a baby! Quiet location with ample space. Garden was fantastic, lots of space to relax and play, and as an added bonus to be able to eat outside!!

Reviewed by Terry 15th June 2019

Lovely peaceful cottage. I saw deer squirrels, pheasants and many other birds from the kitchen window. The cottage is quaint but comfortable. The Wherry Inn is a five minute walk away very friendly.

Reviewed by Ursula 4th May 2019

Hillside, with not a hill in a sweet little 2 bedroom cottage. Rather dated but thats part of its charm. Mrs Rolt was a very helpful host. There was a log pile for the log-burner and birds from every window. While washing up I enjoyed a spat between two pheasants on the lawn! The Wherry served good pub food. Ideally placed on SuffoRead morelk/Norfolk border for visits to the coast and countryside. Hide

The most northerly county in the East of England, Norfolk is a land of beautiful contrasts. From the swooning reed beds and endless maze of waterways in the Norfolk Broads; the unspoilt stretches of fens and shingle spits where bird and wildlife thrive; a famous royal palace and the historic cathedral city of Norwich, this enticing area of England is just waiting to be discovered. Visit Sandringham Palace and see where the Queen lives or find out where lavender grows; you could journey to one of the largest seal haul outs in Europe at Blakeney Point or have a traditional day at the seaside at Cromer and Great Yarmouth. The cathedral gilded city of Norwich is a wonderful place to lose yourself either walking the ramparts of Norwich Castle or the RAF Air Defence Radar Museum. The city has an exceptional array of shops, cafes and restaurants to enjoy. Well connected to the national rail and road network, Norfolk is easily accessible from London, the M25 and from major city terminals.

Norfolk is characterised by its horizons and big skies, straight highways and rural trappings. Also, when it comes to attractions, visitors to the county will be spoilt for choice. If you love animals and birds, head to RSPB Titchwell Marsh, or the Cley-Next-The-Sea. With such a long coastline Norfolk boasts some magnificent stretches of beach – favourites include Cromer, Old Hunstanton, Wells-Next-The Sea, the dunes of Winterton-on-Sea, and Brancaster (a favourite for dog owners).

There are so many places to visit and activities to get involved in on a Norfolk holiday. We have some lovely properties including country cottages, farm conversions, large family houses, apartments and surburban home from homes in our collection. Why not find your perfect holiday home today?
