Your most relaxed riverside holiday on the Norfolk Broads starts here at Swan Cottage. Swan Cottage is at the heart of Broads life. The region's endless, meandering watery byways stretch from your private landing stage, while the lively and varied facilities of Wroxham are no more than a five-minute walk from your front door. If walking seems too much like ordinary life, you can row to the village's shops, restaurants and pub. And maybe stop for a lazy hour or so of fishing on the way home. On the Broads, time is on your side.

Swan Cottage casts its spell over guests. It's a happy, laid-back retreat on the water's edge – ideal for bigger families or groups of three couples. There are no deadlines here: you can take days out to discover what Norfolk and the Broads have to offer, or you can spend all day listening to birdsong and the gentle lap of water against the landing stage. At the end of the day there's only one place to be: on your waterside decking with a glass of something chilled in your hand, and the glow of the setting sun in your face.

A beautiful cottage for life in the slow lane

Swan Cottage taps straight into the Broads' watery rhythm of life. The cottage, which is furnished in a neat, comfortable, and modern style, is a holiday-maker's delight. A spacious lounge/dining room – home to joyful laughter and steaming bowls of comfort food – overlooks the water. On the first floor are a double and a twin room. Beyond that, at the top of an inviting spiral staircase, is a twin room with ensuite.

A stay here is a long-awaited escape from everyday life. It's your route to a world of carefree adventure. Just choose your dates from the calendar below to let it all slip effortlessly into place.
