Our first visit to this rather splendid Boat House. From the minute we opened the door we knew our holiday was going to be rather special. The accommodation is spacious and even though there were just two of us, it would easily house a family. The kitchen utensils and crockery are of a very good standard, as is the décor throughout.The bed is absolutely enormous and totally comfortable, with a fantastic view of the estuary without moving an inch! The garden was perfect for our dog, who was able to bounce around and sunbathe on the decking, whilst we could sit and take in the ever-changing tidal view. The hot-tub is perfect and secluded for extra privacy. It was especially pleasing that it was on and ready to use as soon as we arrived. We were also treated to a welcome pack of milk, biscuits and fizz which was lovely - but throughout the Boat House there were cupboards full of food (tea, coffee, sugar, salt, pepper) and cleaning materials for general use. A very nice touch and so useful.
Yarmouth is small and just perfect. There are many eateries within walking distance and some with the most fantastic views. There is so much to do on the island, whether you have a young family to cater for or are just there, as we were, to enjoy both the delights of historical attractions and the walking.
We were incredibly lucky with the weather but we shall certainly return, as we had an amazing holiday and have so much more to see. Thank you!

I stayed here with a friend, my daughter and her boyfriend. The cottage is delightful! Has all the mod cons you would want. Fantastic views [ especially from the hot tub!]. The local walks and local pubs amazing, would definitely stay here again. Unfortunately the shower broke during our stay, Nigel fixed this promptly.

“Tranquil haven with a view to die for.”
Reviewed 4 February 2015 for a stay in December 2014

This was our second stay and it completely lived up to expectations.
Fantastic location on the edge of the estuary with the sound of the bird calls echoing across the water in the mornings. A vast super comfortable bed from which you enjoy the views with fresh coffee and a hot tub for a sunset glass (or 2) of wine. A peaceful paradise.
The hosts were super hospitable and had even put up a Christmas tree for our stay.
Well equiped inside and out with a good freeview TV and perfect wifi connection for the kids.
Will definately be returning and might try the Airstream next time.

“Great last minute stay for the New Year”
Reviewed 9 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We found this place last minute online as we fancied escaping home and going away for new year. The boathouse is very well situated overlooking the river yar and is a five minute walk into Yarmouth for shops, pubs, restaurants etc. The view is lovely from the garden and is close to many walks along the causeway and further afield. I can only imagine how nice it would be sat in the hot tub overlooking the river in the summer, but we still enjoyed it even in the drizzle and wind and cold of the winter! We took both dogs and young children- the dogs loved the garden, the perfect size and enjoyed being close to so many great walks! The children were very settled in their own bedroom and the house was equipped with everything we needed for our stay. We would certainly return here given a chance I would definitely recommend this to anybody either for a quiet hideaway or family holiday any time of the year!

As mentioned by many others, the view, the hot tub, the facilities and the owners are all superb! We had a wonderful time with my 2 young children (despite the weather). It is so peaceful and calm there which makes it the perfect escape from the craziness that is our lives in London. It had all the equipment we needed and its really nicely furnished (the bed is massive!). The Hot Tub is a huge bonus as well. There was a powercut when we were there due to a storm (only lasted 2 hours) and the owners came round with coffee and breakfast which was a really nice touch. Thoroughly recommended!
