Description

Situated in the heart of Beccles, a quaint market town at the gateway to the Broads National Park, Riverside Lodge is a charming waterside oasis with stunning, unspoilt views of the Waveney River.

This beautiful single storey property has been so wonderfully designed and decorated to create an interior haven which captures the essence of the extraordinary wildlife of the River and Marshes. At the heart of this recently restored property, is a light and bright open plan living, dining and kitchen area, all shaped around the original turret. A curved wall of windows takes pride of place in this wonderful room with uninterrupted views across the landscaped walled garden to the river and the marshes beyond.

Sumptuous kingsize beds, adorned with plush cushions and throws offer a welcoming and relaxing bolthole to retire to and with accommodation for up to four lucky guests, with bedrooms at either end of the property, both boasting ensuite bathrooms, this is the ideal escape for two couples to come and relax.

If this wasn’t already enough to entice you to stay at Riverside Lodge, you can bask in the glorious Suffolk sunshine in your stunning private walled garden, where you can enjoy a spot of alfresco dining, or have a tipple or two on the riverside terrace as you watch the boats floating by and birds dancing in the sky. Otters, Muntjac, Kingfishers, barn owls are regular visitors to the river bank, be sure not to forget your binoculars to watch Marsh Harriers as they majestically swoop over the marsh looking for supper.

If you love water activities, you can launch a canoe or go paddleboarding directly from your private mooring or perhaps you fancy being skipper for the day, if so, you can hire boats and sail along the river to the Coast, taking in all the beauty that the Broads has to offer

If you fancy a 'No Drive' holiday, Beccles boasts Train and Bus Stations, with regular services to the Coast, London & Norwich  

Should guests wish to arrive by their own boat, Riverside Lodge has a private mooring. 

Why we love this property: A simply stunning waterside paradise to enjoy peace and tranquillity, yet 5 minutes’ walk to vibrant restaurants & independent shops
