Ludgate Cottage is a cosy 3 bedroom holiday cottage situated by the water's edge on the River Bure in the popular village of Wroxham.

This lovely self-catering cottage is ideal for a family or friends get together and can sleep 6 people in one double bedroom and two twin bedrooms on the first floor. On the ground floor there is an open plan living, dining and kitchen area with French doors opening onto a furnished decking area overlooking the river. This is the perfect spot to enjoy the waterside views and watch the boats and activity on the River Bure. It is also provides an ideal opportunity for a spot of fishing with all your home comforts to hand.

Wroxham is often referred to as the 'capital of the Broads' and is an ideal base from which to enjoy your Norfolk Broads holiday. With so many leisure activities available in the area such as fishing, boating, watersports and bird-watching, it's not hard to see why! The property is nestled on the water’s edge at a private marina in Hoveton which is directly next door to the hub of activity in Wroxham on the other side of the river.

A 5 minute walk will bring you to the heart of Wroxham where you will find a variety of local shops and a supermarket for picking up any supplies. You will also be spoilt for a choice of eateries with several pretty riverside pubs and restaurants to choose from. Wroxham Barns is a little out of town but is a fantastic leisure and shopping complex. They have a variety of events throughout the year and many activities for adults and children alike. Further afield perhaps take a day trip to the medieval city of Norwich. This is easily accessible by train from Hoveton train station. Alternatively, if you fancy a day out at the beach and a family day of fun and nostalgia then Great Yarmouth is only a 30 minute drive from your property. At the end of each busy day come back to the tranquil river views whilst dining alfresco on your private decking.

If booking within 8 weeks of your holiday start date, full payment will be required at the time of booking. In either case, your booking is not confirmed until either your deposit or full payment has been received and your booking has been confirmed in writing to you by the Owners of Ludgate Cottage.

On receipt of your booking deposit (or full payment if within 8 weeks of the start date of your holiday), a contract of hire will exist between you (hereafter referred to as 'the Hirer') and the owner of Ludgate Cottage. The maximum occupancy as advised by the Hirer must not be exceeded under any circumstances without prior written agreement by the owners and receipt of any additional monies where the small party discount no longer applies. At no time must the occupancy of the cottage exceed 6 guests.

2. Minimum Age of Hirer & Single Sex parties
