Red Roofs is a spacious and rambling family home in a beautiful and peaceful location with super views across Hickling Broad. Full of a comfy mix of old and new furnishings, the rooms are all spacious, light and airy and can very easily accommodate 8 guests and their dogs. The house is detached with a huge, enclosed back garden, all grass! Access to the house is from a private, single track, just across which is beautiful Hickling Broad and the thatched boat houses. Both village pubs are dog friendly and within easy walking distance - The Pleasure Boat and The Greyhound.
Guests are welcome to bring their own boats by arrangement for sailing on the Broad
Older people and dogs will find it easy to holiday at Red Roofs, the majority of rooms are on the ground floor and it isn't far to potter out into the garden or down to the water's edge from the front garden.
