Norfolk Broads Holiday Cottages

Staying in one of the Norfolk Broads holiday cottages is a great way to experience a short break or holiday in the most amazing and unique network of waterways in the United Kingdom.

The Norfolk Broads (or The Broads, as they are also known) are situated in the East of England in East Anglia. The whole area is extremely popular with tourist, not just from the UK itself, but from around the world. It is well known for its many opportunities to travel by boat on over 200 miles of waterways with stunning scenery, and for those hiring a boat there are many moorings available throughout.

Another reason this area is popular as a holiday destination, is the number of idyllic towns and little villages and photo opportunities. There are bigger towns on the coast that are a haven for sun bathers and beach lovers, such as Cromer and Great Yarmouth, the latter has 15 miles of sandy beaches.

There are lots of restaurants and pubs and other places to eat out whenever you wish.

As for things to do, well, there are too many to mention all of them here, but here’s a short list of different types of attractions you can look forward to:
