Fantastic place to stay, can’t recommend it highly enough ! Already trying to find available dates to book again !
Where to start when reviewing this fantastic totally idyllic find.
The boathouse itself has been designed to perfection by owner Amanda with everything you could possibly require. It is tastefully decorated and exudes quality.
Amanda is there to meet guests and is the most welcoming host providing the most extensive of complementary welcome gifts I have ever seen, including wine, tea, coffee, bacon, eggs, cheese, biscuits, butter, milk. The list goes on and it was much appreciated. Oh, I nearly forgot, two bottles of cold lager and the glasses were chilling for us in the fridge. Amanda really does go above and beyond to provide guests with a haven of perfection. Thanks Amanda xx.
The location is perfect for those who love being near and on the water. Located on the edge of the river Yar it is ideal for launching canoes, paddle boards etc. It is also within walking distance of several pubs and restaurants and also Norwich city centre.
We will definalety return for another visit and would highly recommend to anyone reading this review.
Can’t recommend the boat house enough when we arrived we were met by owner Amanda who talk us though the amenities and where everything was,Amanda had supplied everything from milk bread coffee eggs bacon and cheese, also shampoos shower gel we made new friends with the ducks and saw a kingfisher, the boat house is decorated beautifully, we’ll definitely be going back , thank you so much Amanda got a lovely holiday.
We stayed in mid-August and felt welcome long before we arrived. It was cosy and clean, and incredibly relaxing. There were lots of things to look at on the river, a few rowing boats, the occasional small day boat, and plenty of wildlife including swans, geese, and a kingfisher or two. It was perfect to sit out on the decking, drinking wine, and watching the river life pass by.
We enjoyed being just walking distance from good pubs and a cafe, in the village, and a nature reserve just beyond. Thank you Amanda.
The reason we generally mark TripAdvisor reports up to 'very good' is so that when we come across locations like The Boathouse we can use the 'Excellent' mark and really really mean it. Amanda and Adam are the most perfect hosts and have created a wonderful bolthole away from the rush of everyday life. There's room for one car inside the automatic gates or more parking in the layby opposite.
Located on the river with its own little mooring The Boathouse is beautifully furnished and comes with every convenience. When we arrived there were a few items in the fridge and Amanda was soon on hand to welcome us.
If you are in to water sports do take your kayak or canoe - this is an ideal location to launch from and your boats are safe if you decide to go out for the day.
We cannot recommend this location more highly and hope all visitors have the amazing time we did.
