Marsh Cottage is a unique little pet friendly cottage adjacent to marshes bordering the River Yare at the end of a 1/2 mile track. It is in the perfect location for those wanting to relax and unwind throughout the year.
The village of Surlingham is situated around 6 miles from Norwich on the south bank of the River Yare between Bramerton and Rockland St Mary.
Once the home of the Marshman who tended to the cattle grazing on the marshes it is a peaceful romantic hideaway that retains it's 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. It's a terrific experience canoeing through the wonderful small waterways leading on to Surlingham Broad and the River Yare. It's real swallows and amazons stuff!!
