This perfect waterside setting is equally suitable for families and couples, and guests can use this holiday home as a wonderful base for exploring the famous waterways. Set on a quiet waterway leading to the River Bure, within the popular village of Horning, the lodge is an ideal holiday location for fishing and boating, or simply just relaxing. It is located on the waterside, which can be seen from the living room across the lawned garden.
The Broads are a haven for wildlife, and a must for any birdwatching enthusiast. Fishing is also available (in season, licence required), and daily boat hire is available locally. Horning Leisure Centre, open for day guests, boasts an indoor swimming pool and fitness centre. Riverside pubs, cafés and shops all lie within the village centre.
