This main river location provides the perfect setting for relaxing and watching the world go by in boats.
Quayside Lodge sits in an enviable position on the banks of the main River Bure in Horning on the Norfolk Broads. Looking upstream, to the right, are stunning views of traditional properties on a large sweeping corner of the river. To your left the river disappears into the distance downstream. The far side river bank is overgrown with beautiful trees providing a natural habitat for many birds and small animals. Many different types of watercraft can be seen passing here. Expect to see beautifully preserved wooden yachts meandering past, the occasional traditional broads wherry, and motor boats taking a Sunday style cruise.
Inside this discreetly wheelchair accessible holiday home, you will find a living area with comfortable armchairs behind large panes of glass overlooking the lawn and impressive views of the river in all directions.
This semi-detached holiday cottage shares a 23m (75ft) lawn area with two properties to one side with markers on the lawn indicating a soft boundary that you and your neighbours are expected to observe. Two, small, hard standing areas are positioned at the water's edge for fishing activities. An inlet from the river is located immediately to the right with limited space providing a small day-boat mooring (advance permission required). Here you will also find a larger boat moored - owned by the retired owner of this business, who is seen occasionally, and may also briefly socialise with you in passing. A site manager, for this and five neighbouring holiday cottages, is in regular attendance nearby should you need to make a maintenance request or information about the locality.
Regrettably we cannot accept pets under any circumstances. Our outdoor grounds open plan format prevents the necessary segregation from neighbouring properties and so requests for exceptions are always denied.
Single level interior, ramps (gradient 1:12 front and rear) with one hard-surface parking space adjacent, wide doorways, wet-room (step-free) shower with support bars, large toilet room with enough space for lateral transfers from a wheelchair (right) to toilet (left), including wall mounted support bars (left side), one twin bedroom features more space than others.
You may not like; the adjacent car parking space is on a gradient; one double and one single bedroom provide less space around the beds than might be desirable (see pictures, videos and Accessibility Guide); disposal of clinical waste will be charged at cost; beds cannot be moved and profile beds are not possible; terms of hire require disabled guests to be attended to by a physically fit person at all times for their safety.
