RIVERSIDE ACCOMMODATION / FISHING ON THE NORFOLK BROADS

Ballysteen is a self catering, riverside holiday chalet situated in Brundall, just South East of Norwich, on the River Yare. It is in the heart of the Broads, has a station within 5 minutes walk which goes to Norwich in one direction (2 stops) and Yarmouth or Lowestoft in the other. The local pub "The Yare" is a few minutes walk away and serves food 7 days a week. The "East Hills Cafe" is also close by and serves lunches, afternoon teas (including cream teas) and evening meals. The village has 2 supermarkets as well as a choice of take-aways. It is surrounded by good walks and cycle routes. Good bream, perch, pike and roach have been taken from the deck. Boats may be hired or there are regular cruises from nearby boatyards.

Ballysteen sleeps 4 guests in 2 bedrooms each containing a double bed. It is a fully equipped home including free Wi-Fi, Freesat & Freeview TV, DVD, VCR, radio / cassette / CD player, washing machine, dishwasher, fridge, microwave, hairdryer and sufficient glasses, cups, plates and cutlery for your needs. The river side has an upper and lower deck complete with outside tables, chairs and sun loungers for your use. All bedroom linen is provided plus a choice of Summer or Winter duvets, but you will need to bring your own towels. The bathroom has both bath and shower. There is parking for one large vehicle or 2 small vehicles (I have fitted in a Rav 4 and VW Polo). For those who plan to fish rod pods are provided (fishing license needed, close season 15 March - 15 June).

I am sorry, but no pets are allowed: this is both for the benefit of later guests and to protect furniture and fittings as even the best behaved pets have "accidents". Children are welcome but the river presents an obvious danger and guests need to consider how they can ensure their children's safety. No smoking is permitted inside the chalet but guests may do so outside.

Please note that weekly rates include Wi-Fi and electricity; there are no meters to worry about (unlike most larger operators). For prices and availability, see below.

To make a booking please telephone Mike on 07798 841126 or e-mail mike@ballysteen.co.uk
