Why We Love This Deal

Just outside a quaint Broadland village and beside the quiet waters of Ormesby Broad is The Boathouse, an undiscovered bolthole with a pub, restaurant, and boutique rooms. It's a great base from which to discover the Broads National Park and Norfolk's coastline, and a 2-night break for two with breakfast and dining credit is £189.

"Most relaxing short break we've had in ages. Very polite, professional and attentive staff. Excellent menus and service, could not fault a thing. I've already recommended to three friends and looking forward to going back soon."

More Reasons to Go

  • The Boathouse is within the boundaries of the Broads National Park and overlooks "the watery wilderness of Ormesby Broad—a haven of tranquillity all year round" (The Daily Telegraph).
  • The building was renovated from an old country tavern. Downstairs has a relaxed feel with mismatched furniture, an open fire, and a mural that pays homage to the pub's history, while upstairs the contemporary Double rooms have a subtle nautical theme.
  • Wroxham, considered the capital of the Norfolk Broads, is a 25-minute drive away. From there, you can take to the water by hiring a motorboat, chartering a yacht, or embarking on a Broads ferry tour.
  • Winterton-on-Sea is 10 minutes' drive from the property. Stroll along the long sandy beaches that northeast Norfolk is known for and, in the winter months, look out for the seal colonies that come to rest on the shore.
  • Norwich, which Lonely Planet praises for its "magnificent cathedral", "impressive Norman castle", and "thriving markets", is around 30 minutes' drive away.
  • Stuck for Christmas gift ideas? Give a dining, spa, activity, theatre, or hotel experience, and create a memory.

*Room options include the Captain's Cabin, Cheeky Teak, Broads View, or Treasure of the Broads (subject to availability).

**Note: after breakfast, the property does not serve food on Mondays.

Other Comments
The only downside was no soft seating to enjoy drinks before or after dinner, we tended to go back to our room which was a shame as the ambience in the bar/ restaurant was nice
