Sukie is a traditional Broads chalet situated between Martham and Potter Heigham. It has 17 metres of river frontage making it suitable for mooring a boat and/or fishing.

Its situation is perfect for exploring the northern broads of Hickling, Martham and Horsey (the latter being only a 20 minute walk from the beach). It should be noted that the height of Potter Heigham bridge makes it difficult for large motor cruisers to access this area, which keeps this part of the River Thurne particularly quiet.

Sukie sleeps up to 6 in 3 bedrooms (2 double rooms and 1 bunk bedroom), is has a light and airy sitting/dining room with French windows onto attractive decked area. It has open views of the river to the front and uninterrupted views across the water meadow to the rear.

Important: Sukie is accessible by boat or on foot only. Car parking is available at Potter Heigham & Martham, 10-15 minute walk to property (approx. £15 car park fee per week).
