Norfolk Broads

There are not many places which compare to the Norfolk Broads. It’s hard to believe that this watery land is part of England – the numerous rivers, barges, and water mills make it look more like a Dutch landscape.

Cottages with pools near the Norfolk Broads are well placed to take advantage of the boating routes and walking trails which criss-cross The Broads from Norfolk to Suffolk. There are more than 125 miles of waterways to discover, and thousands of boats, kayaks, bicycles and barges available to hire. Fishing tours are particularly popular with families and solitary visitors, and you are likely to find eels, perch and pike in the freshwater rivers, as well as flounders, sea bass and mullet around the estuary.

If you prefer to focus on life above the water, you can still spot plenty of wildlife on the banks of the river along the various routes – there is a friendly population of otters near Barton Broad, and if you’re very quiet you might even spot a Chinese water deer hiding among the fens. If you are staying in a cottage with a private pool you will be woken up by the sound of birds singing and splashing about in the water, and at sunset, look out for pipistrelle bats swooping around the eaves.

When you are staying at a holiday cottage with a pool, it is easy to alternate between outdoor pursuits and cultural day trips to the nearby landmarks of Norfolk and Suffolk – follow the River Yare all the way to Norwich and visit the city’s stunning cathedral, and the 12th century Norwich Castle. Or head south to the seaside resorts of Lowestoft and Southwold, which both boast sandy beaches and traditional beach-side entertainment.

Cottages with swimming pools will bring a whole new level of excitement to this unique area which is sure to show you a side of England that you’ve never seen before.

    Ref: CTR

    This charming, secluded Grade II listed detached cottage has exclusive use of an outdoor swimming pool and sauna and is set in 3½ acres of its own grounds. One acre has been set aside as a wildflower meadow. Kiers Cottage is a classic example of a late-Tudor, timber-framed hall house, built around a central chimney. The holiday cottage, which has celebrated its four-hundredth birthday, is at the end of a two hundred-metre drive and is completely surrounded by farmland. The Suffolk Heritage Coast is within easy reach, along with the market town of Beccles (3½ miles) and the seaside resorts of Lowestoft, Southwold, Walberswick and Aldeburgh. Birdwatchers will doubtless head for the RSPB sanctuary at Minsmere, while closer at hand is the lesser-known Benacre Broad at Covehithe. Then again, guests may simply prefer to enjoy the wildlife in the garden which includes regular visits by a barn owl, a green woodpecker, with plenty of pheasant, partridge, skylarks and occasional sightings of muntjac deer. Shops 3½ miles.

    Built in the late 1700s, Hobland Barn had a number of uses, such as for cattle, grain and potato storage. It was renovated as a family home with light, space and the Norfolk countryside views at the heart of its design. Part of a cluster of similar conversions, Hobland Barn looks over sprawling fields, which can be viewed from the first floor balcony. Whilst it is the perfect rural location, the pretty seaside town of Gorleston-on-Sea is only 3 miles away, and if the traditional seaside experience is on your list of ‘to-dos’, Great Yarmouth is a little further, at 6 miles away, with attractions, rides and ice cream galore for all the family. Hobland Barn is ideally placed to explore the National Park further inland. You can take out a day boat, hire bikes or simply walk many miles along unspoilt water’s edge, taking in the nature, wildlife and simply just enjoying this unique landscape. History abounds in Norfolk and a trip to the fine city of Norwich must be on your list of things to see and do. With its castle at the heart, and an array of cobbled lanes to explore, it would take you all day and more to really experience all this city has to offer.

    Inside Hobland Barn you can expect plenty room for the 12 people it sleeps, with two separate living areas and a spacious kitchen with a gas cooker range, breakfast bar and large French doors that open out to the patio area, swimming pool and enclosed garden.

There are four bedrooms on the ground floor making this property ideal for larger extended families and groups. Surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows in the living areas, even a day spent inside is an enjoyable way to pass the hours. On the first floor is a large family living room, large comfy sofas and French doors opening out to the balcony overlooking the garden and neighbouring fields.
