Kareela is a spacious detached 4 bedroom holiday home occupying an idyllic riverside position in the peaceful Broadlands village of Belaugh. The property is in a prime location on the River Bure with a large rear garden offering direct access to the river, perfect for relaxing or fishing. The beautiful river frontage to the house is private and comes with its own mooring if you wish to hire a day boat to explore the Broads.

Comprising of 2 double bedrooms, 2 twin bedrooms and 2 bathrooms the house offers you the rare opportunity for larger family gatherings or a friends get together. The dining room can comfortably accommodate 8 guests but with Norfolk’s temperate climate you will probably find you spend much of your time dining alfresco on the terraced patio at the rear. The steps lead down to a large private garden allowing you to enjoy the peace and tranquillity that this haven offers. For the early mornings and cooler evenings there is also a sun terrace at the rear where you can relax with a morning cuppa or an aperitif before dinner. An added enhancement is that you can choose to have a complimentary daily newspaper delivered each morning whilst you relax over a leisurely breakfast.

Your stay at Kareela offers the best of both worlds. It is on one of the most rural and unspoilt stretches of the River Bure with no bustling traffic passing by but you are also only a few minutes’ drive away from the “capital” of the Northern Broads at Wroxham. Wroxham provides many dining options as well as a supermarket for picking up supplies and Wroxham Barns provides many activities for children. A more relaxing way to travel is to get out on the river by boat and explore everything this beautiful area has to offer. You can easily cruise through the villages of Wroxham, head over to Potter Heigham and Horning stopping off for a leisurely lunch along the way. Belwiderwood at Horning is worth a visit if you have young children with you. Further afield, you can take a train to the beautiful city of Norwich, take a trip on the Bure Valley Railway or drive to the sandy beaches of the Norfolk coast which are only 11 miles away. Horsey is a nice area to go seal spotting and is accessible by a footpath from your boat mooring as well as by car. After a busy day exploring head back to your accommodation to relax in your serene surroundings and perhaps have a relaxing barbeque on your patio
