Drakes Dyke – Riverside Holiday Property in Wroxham
Beautiful cottage with panoramic windows on the main river Bure in Wroxham and also of Wroxham Broad. The views from this upside down house of the river and the Broad are amazing.Book Online
On the banks of the river Bure in Wroxham come across this gorgeous upside down house with stunning river views. This property is situated between the main River Bure and Wroxham Broad so water in every direction.
It’s an upside down house so all of the living accommodation is upstairs with the bedrooms and bathrooms downstairs. The upstairs living area is accessed by a metal spiral staircase (be careful with small children) that opens up into the high vaulted ceilings and open plan living area with fabulous views of the river and all of the river traffic going by including the local wildlife. There is a balcony on the side of the property with views over Wroxham Broad.
The master bedroom is unique in itself, imagine waking up to those patio doors that surround the bed in the morning with the sun streaming in, open them up and listen to the calming sound of the river and its residents. I’m not sure there is anything more perfect whilst you on are on holiday, let’s hope the kids don’t get to you first !!
The property also benefits from a large decked area for those lazy bbq’s in the garden and a boat dock which is suitable for the storage of a day boat* (if you intend to explore the Broads further). At night you can sit outside on the decking and enjoy listening to the night calls of the wildlife, feeling like you are on the edge of the wilderness with the added benefit of river fishing from your own private garden (in season, licence required).
The beautifully light and spacious property is the perfect get together house.

Booked for a special occasion and wasn't disappointed Weather was 50/50 but it didn't matter to witness the natural beauty of the broads.The house had a lovely warm feel and instantly felt at home....hence I didn't want to leave.
A superb house in a perfect location. Place was immaculate upon arrival and everything we needed as at hand. Garden and facilities were perfect for fishing or just generally lazing around. We did hire a day boat for a week which added to the experience as it is more fun to go shopping/ to the pub by boat than driving - and in some cases quicker.
Highly recommended and we will be returning at some stage in the future.
Wow! What a beautiful house! We have enjoyed our time here so much we will definitely be back. The views and garden are stunning, I've never seen such big hydrangeas!!! Perfect chilled holiday. Beds were so comfortable and the house on arrival was imacculately clean.
We stayed from Thursday to Tuesday. This place is amazing, we took our grandchildren who loved roaming round the "secret" paths in the garden. The house is very spacious and comfortable plenty of room for 8 people and the river views are fantastic. Would recommend to anyone
