Perfect
Once again a smashing week with everything you could possibly need. Ideal for fishing and within easy reach of beaches for walking dogs etc. A very welcome and generous welcome basket was waiting for us, as was a beautifully clean and comfortable lodge. Love it here!

Stunning pet friendly waterside retreat in Bundall
Sadly we have just come to the end of our week in Swallowdale. This truly is a stunning property on the edge of the River Yare. The owners really have thought of everything to ensure your stay is enjoyable. The property is immaculate and well equipped. Children and pets are well catered for, in particular the ability to lock off the upper decking to keep your little ones and your pets safe. Although we visited in winter, the property was warm and comfortable despite the temperatures outside dropping to - 3 . The double bed was very comfortable and we have managed to catch up on some great sleep this week. If you enjoy fishing then this property is a great spot to fish from. The welcome pack was a lovely touch. We have stayed in a number of lovely cottages on the Broads and this by far exceeds any we have previously stayed in. We would love to visit again in the summer as I am sure the experience would be even more enjoyable. On a negative, I will have to wait until next year to get a week in the summer months as this year is pretty much fully booked. That is a testament as to how lovely and popular this property is. That said I would definitely recommend the property at any time of year though. We wanted a quiet relaxing week away and Swallowdale provided it. Thank you for a lovely relaxing week.

Simply The Best
The location is perfect for fishing or just relaxing on the patio watching the world go by. The amenities provided at Swallowdale cater for your every need rain or shine. If you are planning a holiday in Norfolk look no further than Swallowdale we think it will be hard to beat. This was our second visit and have already booked for next year.

Best accommodation on broads
We stayed at this fabulous property for another year. It is such a excellent property,booking dates go quickly. I have searched for other accommodation on the broads but none seem to measure up to this property. It is so well equipped for every eventuality. The decor is five star. It is family and dog friendly. The owners are friendly and aim to ensure you have your perfect holiday. Quietly situated within easy driving distance of Yarmouth and Norwich. Perfect for fishing or just relaxing on the large decking, on the various outdoor furniture beside the river watching the wildlife and the occasional boat go by. Truly a memorable holiday. I would recommend this property to anyone. Enjoy.

Amazing holiday
Stayed at the end of August. This is five star accommodation. Spotlessly clean, mod cons,spacious and modern interior. Extremely well equipped and fantastic owners that even left us a welcome pack for our arrival. This accommodation has beautiful views and a spacious decking area to fish from. It is well situated to explore the Norfolk Broads as well as providing a peaceful holiday. Can't recommend this accommodation enough.

As it said on the tin
My partner and myself have take n a number of holidays in the area and Swallowdale was the the first place where the description and photographs met our expectations. Although the landlady was also on holiday she responded and dealt with a small problem we had, no mean feat. Swallowdale is a lovely place to stay and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys overlooking water and watching the wildlife.

Fantastic!
We thoroughly enjoyed our week's holiday here. When we arrived we found some groceries and a bottle of wine in the kitchen, a nice gesture from the owners. The chalet was immaculate and everything was available, even a washing machine and rotary airer which we inserted in a hole in the decking. We saw herons, ducks, geese and even heard a cuckoo. It was in an idyllic spot, ideal for whiling away the time watching the boats pass by or just relaxing on the decking enjoying the sunshine! An ideal location for visiting other parts of the Broads. We have had several holidays in rental cottages around the area and this was definitely the best one yet.
