The Norfolk Broads are unlike anywhere else in the British Isles. The vast, watery landscape is a haven for boating enthusiasts, and the marshes are renowned for their unique ecosystem, which attracts birdwatchers from all over the world. Narrow country streams flow by old water mills, coastal cottages and country pubs, while the wider stretches of water host mini regattas and a whole range of family friendly activities. At Great Yarmouth, the Broads merge into the River Yare, towards the beautiful beaches of the Norfolk coast where you will find endless stretches of flawless, golden sand.
Cottages by the sea are the perfect place to start your Norfolk Broads adventure. There are a multitude of boat hire companies and sailing schools nearby where you can prepare for your boating holiday and get to grips with life on the water. From your seaside cottage, you can also explore the sand dunes and golden beaches of Norfolk and Suffolk, gathering shells, fishing for crabs, and looking for basking seals near the shoreline. Kids will love the fun-filled beachfront at Great Yarmouth, which is famous for its two piers and local attractions such as the Hippodrome circus. At night, there is no shortage of entertainment for adults, with clubs, bars and pubs all along the Golden Mile which borders the beach.
If you want a more peaceful coastal experience, choose a sea view cottage with easy access to the Broads. There, you can spend your time fishing, hiking or just enjoying the fresh air.
Coastal holiday cottages have been a favourite with British holidaymakers for many years, and the Norfolk Broads provide the perfect backdrop to a relaxing and scenic staycation. Pack your swimwear and your waterproofs and start exploring waterways for yourself!
