2nd stay here. Its a beautiful property with every comfort you need. Just a shame that storm Babet decided to come on our last day and the A47 was flooded and we were unable to leave. Fortunately for us the cottage wasnt booked so Jim very kindly let us stay longer until we were unable to get through. If it wasnt for him we dont know what we would Read morehave done. Many many thanks. Apart from that it was another lovely stay and received a nice welcome back from Jim and Truffle the dog. Hide

We had a wonderful relaxing week. Jim the owner was great , he was close by so if we had needed assistance he was there. He gave us lots of useful information about the area and gave us recommendations of good restaurants. The Boathouse is positioned so you could just sit out and watch the boats go by all day, Lovely!!

Can highly recommend the Brundall Boathouse. Relaxing accommodation in an idyllic location, and within easy reach of Norwich, North Norfolk and the Broads. Welcoming host, flowers and bubbles were a lovely touch. Like many others reviewing and writing in the guest book at the property, we hope to return one day.

The venue was clean, all the essentials where there. The views were great and it is very relaxing watching the boats sail by. There are few places to walk for the able bodied but walking is available nearby. The owner was helpful and friendly and he had left special touches like fresh flowers, a bottle of bubbly, DVD's and books.
