Reviews

We loved our stay at Secret Water. We were looking for a quiet, relaxing place to stay on the Broads and this fit the bill perfectly. We enjoyed cooking at the pod, but it was also a quick walk into town to eat out. We even rowed the boat into town one day. The owners and staff at Hippersons Boatyard were very warm and attentive. We recommend this place to anyone looking for a little something different.
