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, Freeview TV, Freesat TV, DVD, 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

Amazing week and amazing chalet; couldn’t have asked for more……..We went out every day to some beautiful places….. G & C 30/4/16

What a fantastic location, the minute we arrived I was in relax mode. It has got to be one of the most peaceful places to be, just sitting out watching the wildlife and the boats go by…..absolutely cannot fault the place, everything in Ballysteen that we needed… G & N 7/5/16

First visit to Ballysteen and Norfolk and we’ve had a brilliant week! Certainly one of the best self catering places we have stayed in with everything you need. Lovely peaceful location on the river bank meant we had a really relaxing time and we loved it so most definitely coming back. C & S 21/5/16

We have had a brilliant week’s holiday in a brilliant chalet in a brilliant location. Fishing once the season opened and caught bream, roach, perch and, next door, they caught several pike. This was our first holiday in Brundall and it won’t be our last. Thank you. LPM & K 18/6/16

Fishing has been good, perch and bream mainly….Seen the otter a couple of times in the lily pads. So nice down here we never wanted to go home but we will be back later in the year. J&A 2/7/16

This is our home from home (10th year) everything you could need is here. Weather has been good and lots of fishing done. We have had a brilliant 2 weeks. Thanks Mike. P&K 6/8/16

The chalet is excellent, everything you could ever need, the fishing was great with some of the best ever caught. Very welcome tea, milk and sugar on arrival, just right after a long ride on a bike. Can’t fault it at all. IW 19/8/16
