We had a week here end June/early July 2019. I cannot stress enough how enjoyable the stay was. We were blessed with good weather throughout and fired up the barbecue ( our own)most evenings. We opted to hire misty day boat for our stay as there is no road access. Misty was a great asset and allowed us to explore some of the broads , I would highly recommend this. The fishing was great. Best method I found after some experimenting was a straight forward maggot feeder rig. Definitely produced a better stamp of fish than on the float. Best fish of the week a 3 pound perch, but many good roach and skimmers. Eels were a pain.I can thoroughly recommend Milldene. It's comfortable , roomy and well appointed. Also owner Jan is brilliant . We had a couple of minor issues and Jan was very helpful and sorted things very quickly in an approachable cheery manner.We will definitely be rebooking for next year, perhaps for a bit longer this time. 5⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ From us.
We have had a great week! The riverside chalet is clean and very well equipped. There has been plenty of room here for 4 adults and 1 child and a dog. We have used the hot water every day and in the whole week of that together with cooking a few times we have only used £6 in the meter. We hired a lovely day boat from Maycraft who were very fair and only charged us a £100 for 3 days. As one of our party had a bad back, it was great for him to use as a water bus, thank you Milldene for a lovely home from home stay. What a lovely touch too that we arrived to a yummy carrot cake!
Milldene was a lovely bungalow to stay at,clean and very comfortable. We were greated by the owners on arrival, who were both very nice.The surrounding area was beautiful as expected.
The highlite of the holiday was seeing the seal's just of the coast of Horsey.
A big thank you for your help on the booking and arranging the boat.
Such a great place to spend the weekend! Weather wise Friday lovely, Saturday DREADFUL and Sunday quite nice. Monday - off to find the seal pup at Horsey. Fising enjoyable but nothing extrodinary of PB - nice bream. Used Herbert Wood boat to get everything here. Lots of birds - espeically enjoyed seeing a kingfisher, kestral and marsh harrier, grebes etc. Saw two cranes on our journey here. Splendid accomodation, and we appreciated all the help to keep warm. Thank you very much - definatley our sort of place!
Lovely clean cottage, weather could have better, never mind. Hubby had a good week fishing we both had a lovely rest. Thank you.
We had a lovely time nice and clean and comfy. Hope to come again.
Had a wonderful week here! Milldene was very clean, cosy and very comfortable. It had everything we needed albeit a cheese grater! problem solves with the thanks of Latham Stores!!
My sister and brother in law joined us during the week and also loved it.
It is very dog friendly and Jan kindley left us dog t4reats and towels for Gracie and tea cakes and made jam for us. Very welcoming. Thanks you.
PS we will definately return.
Thank you so much for allowing us to share your bungalow for a week! We've had such a restful peaceful time, it has been really wonderful. After spending the last 3 1/2 years as a Landlord and Landlady of a pub in Braintree - with no time off - this holiday came as a very welcome start to our retirement. Hopefully we will be back.
Had a great holiday cattage was warm and comfortable and the fishing was great would definately use it again
