Riverside Cottage (Suffolk) holiday home details

Riverside Cottage is the end terrace of a converted watermill on the banks of the River Waveney on the Norfolk/Suffolk border. Set in the heart of a conservation area, with river frontage and fishing rights, Riverside Cottage is the perfect holiday location for a secluded, romantic retreat. It also makes an ideal cycling base, situated on National Cycle Network route 30.

It has a private jetty, a four person rowing boat and a small, private island accessed via a wooden bridge. Visitors to the garden include swans, deer, kingfishers, ducks and numerous other bird species. Fish include chubb, pike and perch. The river runs the full length of the garden and along the bank are bulrushes, water iris, lilies and reeds. There is a public house within walking distance, The Old Kings Head with origins dating back to the 14th century incorporates a bar and restaurant.
