This was the perfect spot for us. Able to park the yacht we rented outside (heading into the prevailing wind). Cozy and spacious at the same time. Well equipped. Extremely helpful host. Best welcome pack ever. Able to unload the car nearby.

Nutshell is a fantastic property on the riverbank. It is very comfortable and well equipped and Sue was very friendly and helpful. Just watching the boats passing and the ducks, geese and swans was a pleasure. Don't be put off by the parking situation - the car park is a 2 minute walk away and there is a great trolley to load everything on arrival.Read more Everything was spotless and the Wifi was reliable.

Perfectly situated on the banks of the broads. Beautiful place to sit back, pour a glass of something and unwind as the boats sail past. Within easy reach of so many places. My 8 year old son and 80year old mum had a great time too. Sue could not have been more hospitable. I would wholeheartedly recommend to anyone.

Location

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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?
