The Bridge Wroxham

Wroxham is a popular and thriving, mostly tourism supported town, in the heart of the Broads National Park.
The Bridge Restaurant, the ‘home of the big fish’, as it was known locally, had reached the end of its useful life and was in a poor state.

The complex site; small, in a flood zone and adjacent Wroxham Bridge, a Scheduled Ancient Monument, is nevertheless, in an important and busy location.

After lengthy negotiations with the Broads Authority and Heritage England, work started on the 2 storey building in September 2016. Built off piled foundations, the timber frame and Cedar clad building is roofed with grey profiled steel sheeting. Windows and doors, in grey aluminium, complement the contemporary design

Sunnybank – Coltishall

Dating from 1983 of an unusual design and of timber frame construction with white painted aluminium cladding and built off the ground on steel stilts, the property was in need of significant improvement.

The footprint of the raised floors remains much as it was with only an extension to the balcony. The ‘stilted’ area has been infilled to provide additional accommodation. All new windows, doors and significantly improved insulation, services and facilities make for a delightful contemporary home.

The Boathouse Ormesby

With a stunning setting on a quiet arm of the Norfolk Broads, the Eels Foot Pub had, over a period of time, become tired and run down and closed in March 2012.
The main pub building has been altered and renovated throughout to a high standard and is now and gastro pub and restaurant and provides a manager’s flat and 6 guest bedrooms with en-suite facilities.

The remaining old buildings have been removed and the family dining/games areas re-built and enlarged and the large timber framed and profiled steel roofed function room also re-built as a dining area with a slightly larger foot print. A new, much improved and enlarged kitchen has been built and all new toilets provided. In addition a ‘modern’ extension, with a sweeping curved Cedar roof, has been constructed to the east of the large dining area to provide a unique wedding venue and functions area.

3 self catering chalets have also been constructed nearby.

Cox’s Boatyard Redevelopment

The redevelopment commences with 3 new moorings

COX’S BOATYARD. ‘Cox Bros’ could well be one of the oldest family boat building yards on the Norfolk Broads. The boatyard buildings were deteriorating and some near to collapse. Working closely with the Broads Authority, planning approval was granted in 2011 for a comprehensive redevelopment of the yard including replacing all workshops and providing 2 holiday apartments.

A 3 storey timber frame building on piled foundations on a challenging river side site, the Ferry View holiday apartment has superb views over the River Thurne and a National Trust wildlife reserve.

The Waterside Rollesby


Designed in a ‘W’ plan form, with probably one of the best settings on the broads, the timber frame building with large deck area, makes best use of the south facing views over the broad. Seen from the road it has a simple boat-shed like appearance.
