"What a beautiful place the Norfolk Broads are. You can't help but chill and relax! Milldene was the perfect base, clean and comfortable. Loved the wildlife (otters, snakes and seals on the beach). We enjoyed our holiday very much. Thank you"

Milldene is a traditional Broads cabin on the north east riverbank of the River Thurne at Potter Heigham. Great for easy, cheap and relaxing waterside holidays. It provides basic, clean and comfortable accommodation for up to 8.
From the cabin you can walk inland along miles of road free marshland footpaths and of course you can hire a boat for the week, moor it up in front of the cabin and use it to explore the Broads. Hickling Broad, Horsey and Ludham are a short cruise away and much of the Broads National Park network is accessible from here.
The cottage is traditionally let out for fishing (seasonal) but the owner loves her peaceful little cabin and would love to see it enjoyed by dogs and their owners also so we have taken in on from April 2014. Potter Heigham broads village has a pub, shops and cafes and boat hire yard.
When you get here: Access to the cabin is along a short and easy footpath behind the other cabins but there is no road access (so no passing traffic bar boats and ducks!). Luggage can easily be delivered to the cottage by water taxi.
The property is surrounded on 3 sides by a wooden paling fence which tails down as it gets to the waters' edge where there is no fence to the open river. There is a simple grass area with picnic bench seating in front with views across the river to the open marshes and the quay heading on which you can moor a boat if you want to hire one for the week. Extra outside seats also available at the cabin.
