Our Top 5 for the Norfolk Broads
If you enjoy messing about on the river, our Top 5 selection in the Norfolk Broads will certainly float your boat! We have found a great choice of accommodation for you to choose from, all by the river and some even with boats to let you get the most from your holiday.
So, in no special order:
1. Holiday Cottage – Leisure Hour, Wroxham, Norfolk
Sleeps 6. Relax on the veranda of this cute thatched riverside cottage and watch the boats go by. Overlooking the River Bure, this is a perfect spot for a holiday, with shops and restaurants within walking distance.
2. Cruisers – Wroxham, Norfolk
Why not captain your own boat and explore the Norfolk Broads at your own pace? Holidays afloat are very popular for a break with a difference. Summercraft at Wroxham offer a choice of stylish and elegant boats.
3. Hotel – Wayford Bridge Inn, Wayford, Stalham, Norfolk
If you want to relax and enjoy the river views, perhaps this 3-star riverside hotel in the Norfolk Broads is for you. It dates back in part from the 17th century and sits beside the ancient crossing point over the picturesque River Ant at Wayford Bridge. Enjoy a meal in either the à la carte restaurant or the more informal bistro, followed by a nightcap in the lounge bar with its cosy open fire.
4. Holiday Lodges – Daisy Broad Lodges, Wroxham, Norfolk
These four star holiday lodges each sleep 8 – 10 people and are situated right on the banks of the River Bure. These offer ‘upside down’ accommodation to make the most of their lovely location; the upstairs sitting room leads onto a balcony where you can relax in style and enjoy the sights and sounds of the river. An all-weather day launch is included in each property – please see the property details for terms and conditions.
5. Holiday Cottage – Drakes Dyke, Wroxham, Norfolk
Set on the waterfront in the very heart of the Norfolk Broads, this detached holiday home sleeps six people and enjoys stunning views. The lawned garden leads down to the river’s edge where there is a private mooring. Use of an all-weather day boat is also included so you can explore the Broads at your leisure. There is also a games room with table tennis and a pool table.
