Property Overview
Property Location

Mallard & Bittern Holiday cottages are wonderful two bedroom waterside holiday homes located close to the old bridge at Potter Heigham. They are really are the perfect place to relax and watch the active river traffic and wildlife. Situated at the entrance to the river Thurne from the marina. Excellent fishing both from the cottages, in the marina and on the main river behind.

All your local amenities can be found in Potter Heigham village which is only a short walk away. There are two pubs, a chip-shop, bakery, post office and coffee shop. The famous Lathams store is also across the road from the cottages and from here you can purchase fishing tackle and fresh bait as well as groceries & deck shoes. The famous medieval bridge in Potter Heigham is believed to date from 1385 and gives access to the Upper Thurne, Hickling Broad and Horsey Mere waters upstream.

By far and the best way to experience the Broads would be by boat as It gives the whole family the opportunity to explore the delights of this area at your own pace. At selected times of the year you'll receive a free dayboat for the day and also 25% discount on additional days and the local river trips.

Sandy beaches are not far away and Great Yarmouth can be a fun day out too which is a short drive away.
