    We have returned from another year at this lovely cottage. Such a wonderful location, and the cottage is well loved and cared for. It has such a homely feel, you would think it was your own (I wish it was). Cannot praise the standard of cleanliness and welcoming feel about this property. The owners or caretakers do a excellent job. Thank you again for letting us enjoy the pleasure of staying in such lovely cottage and watching the world go by. Will be back again next year !!

    Have just returned from our first week in the norfolk broads and what a lovely cottage, very relaxing. Nice to wake up to the ducks at the patio doors waiting to be fed. Would recommend The New Inn for food. We had a glorious week where we could just sit out in the evening before nightfall (shame no outside lights to enjoy the night a little bit more). Nice just to watch the boats and the world go by at the end of the garden. Once again thank you for such a clean and comfy cottage,.

    Enjoyed a great Easter at Riverbank Cottage and would recommend a stay here. Wonderful location and a very warm, clean and homely cottage where the three generations were very comfortable. Thanks to Ian and Sharon for a very friendly service. We will be back!

    Have returned from our fifth stay at Riverbank. Never disappointed, the cottage was lovely and the weather was wonderful who could ask for me. Cannot recommend this cottage highly enough. Some great pubs nearby. The views of the river are amazing, You must go and stay here. Thanks to Ian and Sharon for always making the cottage have such a homely feel. Will look forward to our sixth visit !

    Dear Ian and Sharon,

    Have just returned from our first visit to your lovely cottage. Had a fabulous 9 days stay (Nov 2014). The cottage is very warm, inviting and extrembly comfortable and you have superbly accommodated to suit all ages. Your communication was second to none and would have no hesitation in recommending your cottage. Will definately return.

    Once again many thanks

    A lovely week, in a lovely cottage.
    Whether you are looking for a quiet retreat riverside, close to the amenities of the village, or a base for a family adventure in and around the Broads, you should look no further than Riverbank Cottage.
    Firstly, lets get the negatives out of the way. If you have a problem with; a narrow access (we managed easily with a Kuga & an S-max) / 1 bathroom (there is a downstairs loo) / steepish stairs (we managed with our 18 month old granddaughter), then Riverbank is not for you, otherwise, give it a go, you will be pleased you did.
    Onto the positives. We arrived full of expectation, having spent a wonderful week here in May last year. Well, we were not disappointed, we had a great week in a lovely cottage, in part, due to the flexibility of the owners, Ian and Sharon, who were happy with our plan to share the cottage with different parts of our family, over the week.
    Our week was well planned and divided into 3 distinct parts.
    The first 2 nights we shared the cottage with our son, daughter in law and our 18 month old granddaughter.
    The following 2 nights, it was with our daughter, her husband and our grandsons.
    The final part was 3 nights on our own, to recuperate.
    On arrival, the cottage was just as we expected; clean, bright, well stocked and ready to go. There were dishwasher powder / washing up liquid and all the other ‘bits’ you need and often forget, supplied and free to use.
    What can you say when you are told; ‘feel free to use the phone / central heating / Wei’.
    With a toddler on the premises, vigilance was the order of the day, but, regular trips down the garden to the river, with either nanna or mummy, to feed the ducks, meant that all went swimmingly and we had a smashing weekend.
    Then our grandsons arrived, all bursting with energy, which they started to expend by running around the garden, feeding the ducks and looking foward to Thrigby Hall and Bewilderwood. There were real tears of sadness, when they had to leave for home.
    At last, we were on our own and able to wind down.
    Thursday saw us take a long walk around the village, a trip on the river boat, followed by a cream tea at the Galley Cafe in the village and finish with dinner at the Bure River Cottage Restaurant, just down the road. A cracking day!
    Friday we visited the Blickling Estate. A lovely house, but the weather (pooring rain) prevented us from spending time in the gardens, so, we have a good excuse for a return visit.
    Saturday morning saw us watching the start of the 3 rivers race. A wonderful spectacle of sailboats, apparently organised, but looking chaotic, setting off for a race that would see some of them returning in the early hours of Sunday morning.
    At Riverbank, we were beautifully placed for all the primary facilities of the village, with the shops, pubs, restaurants, cafes and takeaways all within very easy walking distance. (The furthest being the chippie, which is about a 10 or 12 minute walk)
    All in all, another lovely week at Riverbank.

    This latest visit to Horning was our 3rd at Riverbank Cottage and was not a disappointment, in fact, the excellent service we have come to expect from the owners, Ian and Sharon, started before we arrived.
    As we were having an early lunch, we received a phone call from Ian, who told us that, as the cottage was ready, we could collect the keys any time we were ready.
    On arrival, the cottage was clean, tidy and smelled fresh and a quick run through confirmed that everything was working.
    We thoroughly enjoyed our week, utilising the services of the New Inn, the Chinese takeaway and the Bure River Cottage Restaurant, all of which we can recommend.
    We plan to return to Horning and to Riverbank . . . . Soon.
