Tracara House is a large two storey self-catering property in the centre of Horning, a scenic waterside Norfolk village with good local amenities. This five bedroomed property has two large living rooms, both with views towards the lovely River Bure.

The whole house, which can be split into two apartments if preferred, can sleep up to 12 people in 4 double bedrooms, one twin bedroom with bunk beds and a pull down double bed in the living area. There are two indoor dining areas and an open air balcony with table and chairs overlooking the village and riverside. Both living rooms are fitted with Smart TVs, Freeview and DVD. The house also has a ground floor utility room with washing machine and there’s off road parking for two cars. There is one family bathroom and two shower rooms, each with a W/C which is great for larger groups of family or friends.

Tracara is set back from the river front but overlooks the water and moorings belonging to the New Inn which is situated on the other side of picturesque Lower Street. Tracara does not have its own boat mooring.

Horning itself is a charming, riverside village with shops, restaurants, cafes, pubs and a small leisure centre. Wroxham, which is known as the 'Capital of the Norfolk Broads' is only 3 miles away and is where you will find the famous 'Roy's of Wroxham' department store. A trip to BeWILDerwood, a nearby woodland adventure park, is sure to please the children! Locally you can take a Riverboat Ride with Broads Tours or visit Wroxham Barns which has a petting zoo, craft stalls and children’s activities. The historic cathedral city of Norwich is only 11 miles away and it’s just a 20 minute drive to the coast. Tracara House is in a great location for family holidays on the Norfolk Broads.
