Job Done


The patio has gone, and in its place 4 tons of slate. A new membrane and repairs to the decking and moorings now give the front of Waterside Lodge a fresh new look and makes the entire area a bit smarter.



Autumn refurbishment of outside spaces



The old patio around Waterside Lodge is currently being taken up. Work has started on replacing part of the mooring which has rotted over the years and at the same time we are refreshing the front of the property with a new surface and a new seating area. Over 80 slabs have been removed so far. We hope to have it all finished in time for our next guests in 10 days time!!


Changes for the 2020 season



We are very pleased to announce that Waterside Lodge will be managed by Ferry Marina from January 1st 2020. 



After several years of working independently and with another agent, we are very pleased to be back working with the new management team at Ferry Marina

In October we will start dismantling the side mooring and patio around the property and replacing another section of the decking. A new surface will provide additional sitting areas for relaxing, fishing and generally watching the world go by. Once the work is underway we will post some pictures to show you the improvements. 

For further information, please contact us at Broadland Cottages.



Free Wifi installed for 2018

21 \06\2018 \\ Wifi


Just in time for the 2018 season, we have installed Free WIFI for both Waterside Lodge and Ludham Quay for the convenience of our guests. For Ludham Quay this also means a smart new TV with internet channels - just in case the views and surroundings are not enough!!

Our Houses are now on 100% renewable energy

16 \05\2018 \\ Renewables


We have recently changed the power to our houses to a supplier that uses 100% renewable energy. This means our overall carbon footprint will reduce and that along with us our guests will be collectively responsible for fewer CO2 emissions even when taking their holidays!!

Our resident Heron

12 \05\2018 \\ Wildlife


Our Resident Heron often comes for a visit. The roof of the house gives him a clear view of the water in the basin and those all important fish! Aside from Fish we have over the years found he likes a little Bacon in the mornings and Chicken at lunchtime!!

A Busy Winter

30 \03\2018 \\ Developments

The snow in March delayed some of our winter work but finally this week, we finished the installation of a brand new Kitchen for Waterside Lodge. The work took just over 1 week and involved a complete re-design so that we could cater for the installation of a washing machine.

A new hob and cooker completes the installation works and should provide much better facilities for our guests. Other work included our annual redecoration and refurbishment of the rear patio.

Also over the winter we acquired nearly 50ft of moorings at the side of the house to provide more fishing and privacy for our guests.

Ludham Quay added to our portfolio

01/04/2018 \\ Developments

We are pleased to announce that in the first few weeks of 2018 we have added Ludham Quay which is a second property for Broadland Cottages.

Ludham Quay is a 3 storey modern townhouse with its own private mooring and fantastic views across the marina towards Woodbastwick

Ludham Quay has received a bit of a make over during the past 2 months including comprehensive re-decoration, new carpets and all new soft furnishings. A new utlity room with washing machine and tumble drier, smart internet enabled TV, free WIFI, coffee machine make this an excellent family holiday home. Available from Mid April 2018.

Spring is in the air - Look out for our 3 resident ducks

01/04/2018 \\ General

There is finally a definite feel of spring in the air. Even our 3 resident ducks have returned to the decking, patrolling the marine basin!!


Regular Maintenance

2017 \\ Moorings


After several decades of being submerged in water, our quayheading needed rebuilding. The new quayheading should be good for another 25 years at least!
