This unique rustic little cottage overlooking the RSPB bird reserve and marshes bordering the River Yare is in an idyllic location for those wanting to relax and get away from it all.

This unique rustic little cottage adjacent to marshes bordering the River Yare is in the perfect location for those wanting to relax and unwind whatever the season. This peaceful romantic hideaway was once the home of the Marshman who tended to the cattle grazing on the marshes, and we have tried to retain its rustic charm with original brick floors and wood burning stove. The network of quiet lanes and extensive riverside footpaths (including Surlingham RSPB Reserve,Ted Ellis Reserve and the Wherryman’s way) make it the ideal spot for walking, cycling, fishing (with licence), bird watching, or just cosy nights in front of the fire on a winter's evening. A motor launch can be hired locally to explore the expanse of Norfolk Broad Waterways, plentiful with wildlife and ample opportunity to visit the many riverside inns. Nearest pub 10 minute walk! You cannot fail to be enchanted by all that Marsh Cottage and the surrounding area has to offer with nature well and truly on your doorstep. We now have a Canadian canoe that you are welcome to borrow during your stay. It is kept a 10 minute walk from the cottage where you can access the wonderful waterways leading to Surlingham Broad and the River Yare.

Notes on accommodation: Marsh Cottage is at the end of a rough track less than half a mile long. The track can be seen in the photographs. There is parking in a grass courtyard adjacent to the cottage. The courtyard can be locked. Outside: FULLY ENCLOSED fenced garden. Patio area surrounded by lavender with wooden round table and chairs. Bbq and picnic table on higher ground with fantastic views of surrounding fields and marshes.Two wooden sun loungers. Clean sheets, towels and tea towels provided at the start of every stay. Please bring beach towels and dog rugs/beds/ towels if bringing your pet. There is a lockable outbuilding for bikes/canoes etc. Bags of logs and kindling can be bought and paid for using an honesty box. Mooring for a boat on the River Yare can be arranged with advance warnng in walking distance from Marsh cottage.
