The Norfolk Broads are England's largest stretch of wetlands, and are a unique combination of broads or shallow lakes, rivers and dykes which can be found in the area bounded by Norwich, Stalham, Lowestoft and Beccles. Famous for the magnificent boating they afford, with over 125 miles of navigable waterways they also play host to a wide variety of plants, animals, insects and birds. North Norfolk & Horning has one of the dryest areas in the UK, due to its easterly position, & during hot weather receives a cooling breeze from the coast for added comfort.
