West Somerton is an attractive Broadland village that is tucked away in the eastern fringes of The Broads National Park.  Lying alongside the River Thurne and with a good local pub, the area is a great place for messing about in boats, fishing, walking and cycling.  The nearby village of Martham, has a thatched fish and chip shop, 2 pubs and a local supermarket.  The locality is teaming with wildlife year round, there is family fun at Bewilderwood's adventure play park at Hoveton and the cultural hub of Norwich is less than an hours' drive away.

Lovely cottage. Very well equipped. Perfect for a quiet break.Mrs E Anderson - 4th April 2018
An absolute dream of a location. Everybody loved staying there.Mrs Angela Brown - 22nd July 2017
It is quite simply a wonderful cottage in a wonderful location. It is well equipped and well thought out. In thirty years of self catering, this is one of my favourite places! I was particularly impressed that both the booking person and the local manager were happy to arrange a Sunday-Sunday let to fit our particular circumstances as the property was available the following week. It was excellent service. A wonderful house in a wonderful location. Perfect for walkers, bird-watchers and anyone who wants to relax!Rev Kate Massey - 24th April 2017

It was a lovely cottage and I enjoyed my holiday there. It was clean, had most anything you could need in the kitchen, a lovely location looking out at the water and the bed was quite comfortable too.Ms K Ash - 26th September 2016
Property was superb. We had a fantastic stay.Mr S Nickalls - 13th August 2016
Wonderful, better than expected. Everything was there, including toys etc for the kids, lovely cake for us on arrival plus tea bags and milk. Very thoughtful. Spotlessly clean, and in an idyllic location. We would definately recommend.Mr M Hustwitt - 4th June 2016
