Property Description

The Property

Bure Reach is a pretty Victorian semi-detached cottage, nestled in the heart of Norfolk on the banks of the River Bure.  The village of Lamas is home to the picturesque Buxton Mill and the cottage itself has a charming walled garden which backs on to the sleepy River Bure and has far reaching countryside views.  Bure Reach Cottage boasts a cosy sitting room, dining room, kitchen, garden room and two double bedrooms upstairs with a family bathroom.  

Bure Reach has been a much loved holiday cottage for many years.  The current owners live locally and rent the cottage between April and October very successfully.  The cottage has a cosy and homely feel throughout and is perfect either as a main residence or a second home with the proven ability to generate a second income when not being enjoyed by friends and family.

Downstairs there is a charming sitting room to the front of the cottage with an original feature fireplace, downstairs loo and dining room which leads in to the modern kitchen overlooking the rear of the cottage and the river and countryside beyond.  To the side of the cottage is a comfortable garden room which is flooded with natural light from picture windows looking out to the pretty walled garden and roof velux windows.

Upstairs there are two double bedrooms, both with feature fireplaces, one to the front and one to the rear, benefitting from the view and a family shower room.


Bure Reach Cottage is approached from the village street over a shared driveway with parking for one car to the front of the cottage.  The cottage is semi-detached with a further property bordering the parking area.

The pretty walled garden is to the side and rear of the cottage with a truly lovey spot to sit out and watch the wildlife and the river.

Holiday Let Opportunity

Holiday Let Income:  £16,000 (April - Oct 2019)

Holiday Let Occupancy:  23 weeks (April - Oct 2019)

Sleeping: 4 in 2 Bedrooms

Bure Reach has been successfully holiday let by the current owners for many years.  They currently advertise the cottage with leading local agency, Norfolk Cottages.  It would be straightforward for new owners to continue marketing the cottage with Norfolk Cottages and the cottage could potentially be available as a turnkey (by separate negotiation).

The potential total rental income, based on Norfolk Cottage rates for 2021 between Apr & Oct would be £17,565.  There are 10 -12 weeks already booked for next year.
