This cottage is an absolute credit to its owners, clean, comfortable and homely, we felt completely safe and protected from the dreaded virus. The walk to the cottage along the towpath is no problem whatsoever, and my hubby is 81! The location is great, there is always something going on along the river, I could have sat on our garden bank all day.Read more Thank you Sue and Fred. Hide

Rushmere cottage is a home from home experience from the moment you walk in the door, all home comforts along with a peaceful surroundings. The owners are lovely and once you meet them it's as if you have known them for years. Rushmere was my little piece of heaven this year as I am a key worker and really needed time out to relax which I did.

Ideal for that ultimate restful break. Lovely property just feet from the Broads - great just to relax and watch boats of all shapes and sizes cruise past. Just one point of caution for those who cannot walk too well - there is a half mile walk from car park to cottage. Overall a must visit for the able bodied - the place is just great.

Best holiday ever ! Star location - includes private garden on the Broads. Very friendly helpful owners, spotlessly clean cottage and has everything one will ever need- except washing machine - so carry extra clothes. Were welcomed with a rather large hamper including milk, bread, eggs, cake ,juice, sweets and fruit. Great location too. Bang on theRead more Broads and the other side acres of grasslands. Just 20 minute walk to Potter Higham for food, boats,cycles. Most attractions within 30 minutes drive Hide

Bliss! Such a wonderful place to stay. So relaxing and peaceful. Spent a whole day sitting in the small garden, adjacent to the water expanse of the Broads, watching the luxury cruisers pass bye. The optimum stress buster.

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?
