“Ideal location but !!!”
Reviewed 8 July 2018 for a stay in June 2018

people found this review helpful

Second time of staying and the location is good. Horning is a nice place and the options for eating out are good. If you had no personal transport and relied on public transport, you would not go short and could enjoy the break.. Plenty of choice for a small place. On the down side the accommodation lacks shelter/shade given the full sun all day and it is scorching hot. Exceptional yes but no umbrella, picnic table crawling with ants poor state of the walkway and fences is regrettable. Beyond the owners responsibility is the sharing of the plot with a boat owner who spent the whole weekend move boats in and out. No apology or any notice from the owner that the plot is shared. The noise from the d i y enthusiasts at the rear for at least two days and the neighbouring property with the over indulgence of alcohol resulting in swearing and effing and blinding all Friday afternoon simply endorsed why all is not what it use to be. If you want to have a tranquil holiday and enjoy the broads, the boats and absorb the atmosphere remember how the broads use to be forget it. Long gone has the peace and enjoyment and for example the paddle steamers and in particular the boat from Wroxham was So over the top and the noisy behaviour of the DJ and those on board sums up,why the broads is no longer the ideal peaceful holiday.

Hi ACNorthEssex,

Thank you for your review, I'm pleased to read that you enjoyed your time at the Windmill and took advantage of everything the village of Horning has to offer.

I will pass your comments on to the owner regarding the provision of an parasol for the table. Within the cottage handbook is a contact number for the caretaker and I am confident if you had contacted them they would have been happy to assist you.

With the Windmill being located along a busy stretch of the river bure some noise from passing cruisers and boat yards is to be expected, however please accept my apologies for the behavior from the occupants of the neighbouring property, this is certainly not acceptable or something that has been reported in the past.

I hope this will not deter you from returning to the Norfolk Broads, perhaps in a more secluded location.

Kind Regards,

James

“Broads Paradise”
Reviewed 5 June 2018 for a stay in May 2018

A beautiful serene place to stay. Quirky and full of charm. Tiny but so well thought out, the layout worked perfectly for the four of us.

The Windmill was enchanting and I pray we return one day.
