Reviews of Coot Wood

April 2010

Beautiful house in a stunning setting.

April 2010

Stunning location and facilities on site and surrounding area eg canoe to use.

March 2010

Superb location right on the banks of the River Bure. Cottage was extremely cosy and well maintained. It was also well equipped with everything that you need. The fishing was slow but from others who had stayed at the cottage it seems a prolific spot. The wildlife was amazing. Herons, Kingfishers, Grebes were constantly around the cottage. we seemed Isolated yet 2 minutes up the private track you were in Wroxham. Overall it was wonderful.

Dec 2009

Beautiful views over the water on two sides.

Nov 2009

Overall a fantastic location in a beautiful property.

Aug 2009

Very cosy with home-from-home feel.

Sept 2009

Idyllic location and what views! Fishing from the garden, canoe available which all the family enjoyed. Plenty of wildlife, saw Kingfisher, Heron and an Otter! Relaxing, comfortable and ideal touring base - not that we wanted to leave the cottage very much as we thoroughly enjoyed the setting, 4 generations on this holiday and there was something for everyone. Would definitely recommend.

Aug 2009

Fantastic, spotlessly clean property with everything you could need in a superb location. The garden is large and we spent a lot of time fishing and boating. The canoe provided was an added bonus. Views from both balconies are spectacular and we did not want to come home! It was a great family holiday! Fantastic, spotlessly clean property in a superb location. Everything we needed was there. We had great weather and spent a lot of time in the large garden by the river, fishing and boating. We did not want to leave and would highly recommend it for a great family holiday!

May 2012

The cottage was really lovely, everything you needed for a quiet relaxing holiday. It was so peaceful, the views from both balconys front and back were fantastic, the owner was so helpful and friendly. Will be going back again some day.

Dec 2011

A beautiful property set in fantastic area. The house was very clean, and also easy to clean. Where ever we stay, we will always go through the house, hoover through, strip used bedding and clean bathrooms. We always wish to leave a place as clean was when we arrive, because we have been brought up to respect others property and if its is left clean and tidy, we would always be welcomed back. The area was very quite, and peaceful. Fantastic for water and nature lovers, we saw the Otter! As well as many, many different kinds of birds. Overall, our holiday was excellent. I would recommend this property to anyone who enjoys nature and life at a much more relaxed pace.

Anyone booking a holiday in this property will not be disappointed, every persons need is catered for even the dog, there are towels for mucky paws a feeding dish and a bed just in case you forget, and we didnt notice until we were packing up to come home but there is a wooden box full of welly-bobs in every size which i thought was quite good, and thoughtful,We had a goods weeks fishing as well even better at night when all the boats had finished going up and down. This cottage is a hidden gem very comfortable, quiet,spacious and private in other words every thing you could possibly wish for, we have never been in such a lovely cottage. Thank you to the owners for a lovely holiday.

Oct 2011

This cottage was more comfortable than we expected, and fulfilled all our expectations. We would have appreciated a map of local walks - only because the tourist information office in Wroxham seemed to be constantly closed.

Sept 2011

stayed for 4 nights 18 to 22 of September, had a great time, house is very clean and well equipped made use of the 3 man canoe, loads of roach to catch and pike later on, will go again in 2/3 years time if not sooner, just be carefull on the wooden bridges once it rains as they become very slippery.

June 2011

Fourth visit and hope to go again (its that good). Best equipped property we have used, the kitchen is a dream for 6 folk as is the rest of the property. The canoe is handy and the facilities for tying up a hire boat is perfect (Fineway Boat Hie are excellent) The wildlife is great, well everything is really.

Oct 2010

Excellent location, superbly presented, immaculately clean and tidy.

Aug 2010

The photos and description don’t do this property justice. Presented in excellent condition, lots of thought gone into the details.

July 2010

The property was a gorgeous wooden house built on the River Bure by the owner, Dave, who handed me the keys when I arrived. The fact that he’d built it and decorated it himself with pictures from his travels in Africa gave me the feeling that he cared about the place , and that it was special to him. And that made it feel special to me. It had a wonderful relaxed atmosphere to it. It felt like home. The property owners had spent a lot of time thinking about what people might need when they were staying there, and provided it. I don’t think their efforts could have been bettered. 5 star hotel owners yearn to create a feeling of relaxation and belonging, in their rooms. I think they should talk to Dave!

June 2009

Beautiful cottage with the owners giving every consideration to guests needs whilst on holiday. However, access is difficult by car and it was not clearly stated in the brochure how far away car parking was.

March 2010

Super location.

Sept 2009

Very comfortable and spotlessly clean.
