Head over to the UK's driest county for a stay in this fantastic new abode Chère Amie! Here we have a brand-new boat and mooring set in the breath-taking countryside of North Norfolk, accommodating up to 4/5 guests.

Chère Amie is a 1973 Westerly Pageant 23' sailing yacht, previously moored at Wells for 14 years and the owners' family had many sailing adventures up and down the North Norfolk coast on it during that time. It's now come home to Rosslyn and has been transformed into a cracking place to stay for romantic breaks and family weekends.

There is a shared outdoor pool onsite so pack your swimming costumes and really enjoy yourselves.

This accommodation consists of two parts. A dayroom on the jetty with a sitting area, a large picture window looking out into the woods and a cosy wood-burning stove for evenings in. There are four tub chairs and a coffee table.

Then there's the quintessential boat! Chère Amie, moored up to the jetty. It's an open plan set up with a cooking area and sleeping area. It is heated and cooled by an air source heat pump.

Although it is possible to sleep 6 we don't recommend that all beds are occupied as it might feel cramped. Max of 4 adults or 2 adult and 3 children.

Outside there is a full gas barbecue with a cold water sink, a picnic bench and a parasol. Please be aware the jetty is 5 feet off the ground with chains around it but we advise caution if you are bringing small children. There is a shower block with individual wet rooms including a family-sized wet room with baby changing facilities.

There is plenty to do on this site, which was once owned by the headmaster of the local school and had original shepherd's huts on site. The natural woodland setting allows for ample opportunities to see bats, owls, deer and foxes, or why not feed the owners' pigs, who love nibbling on food scraps! There are 3 other structures on the grounds but all are private from each other.

Owners Claire and Andrew have thought of everything to make sure you have a comfortable stay.
