"The Ship" in the market town of Beccles makes for a lovely place to take a cottage holiday with friends and family. The Ship sleeps 8 people in 4 bedrooms - so is ideal for those get togethers. You'll find The Ship on the edge of Beccles, in Suffolk, and ideally positioned to explore the Suffolk and Norfolk countryside; or to make the most of the Norfolk Broads. If you want to hire a boat for a few hours, head into Oulton Broad - which is a 10 minute drive - and you can rent a boat by the hour. Or, for the more physically minded out there, head for Waveney River Centre in Burgh St Peter - only a 5 minute drive - and you can hire a kayak for a couple of hours. The beach is another point of interest, with Southwold, Lowestoft and Great Yarmouth being a short drive from The Ship - Great Yarmouth is likely to have all the seaside action you can handle! The city of Norwich is 30 minute drive too. For those with children, you may want to visit BeWILDerwood, Pleasurewood Hills or Africa Alive - with all three attractions offering completely different days out.

You get a wood burning stove in the living room; with gas central heating too; bed linen and towels are included in the price of your holiday; there's a bunch of TVs and a DVD player; with a dish washer and washing machine being available.
Outside you have a terrace sit and sip a glass of wine, while enjoying the calming influence of the River Waveney. (The photo on the left shows you the terrace with the river in the back-ground; you also have 2 parking spaces.
