Nestled on the banks of the River Bure, the pretty Norfolk village of Coltishall is the perfect base from which to explore the idyllic countryside and gently meandering waterways of the Norfolk Broads. You will find Coltishall northeast of Norwich, on the edge of the Bure Marshes National Nature Reserve. The village is known for its fine historical architecture and has a station on the Bure Valley Railway. You will find a variety of independent businesses in the village centre, including the Rising Sun, a charming pub overlooking the river. There is also a bakery, a tearoom, and a small grocery. A wander around the neigbouring villages of Wroxham and Hoveton is a must, with boat tours departing from the riverfront. The wetlands, woods and fields on the doorstep of holiday cottages in Coltishall are a paradise for walking and wildlife-watching, with plenty of footpaths where you will often walk for miles without seeing another soul. A short drive from your holiday cottage in Coltishall, the city of Norwich is well worth a visit, with graceful churches, excellent shopping, galleries, museums and lively nightlife. If you fancy a day by the sea, the Norfolk coast is a short drive away, with ancient fishing villages and sand and shingle shores. Head to Cromer or Sheringham for delicious, freshly caught crab and lobster.
