The East Anglia region

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.


Horning, located on the River Bure, is considered the most picturesque of all the Broadland villages, In the village there are several pubs and restaurants offering a wide range of menus and prices. Boat hire is available nearby, and there is also a leisure centre with small swimming pool, jacuzzi and fitness centre close by.

Within 5 minutes walk of the cottage there is a newsagents, butchers, greengrocers, post office and delicatessen. Good shopping can also be found in Wroxham and Norwich, which also has all the usual facilities you would expect in this fine cathedral city.

There are good sandy beaches about 15 minutes drive. For the children there are many theme parks in the area, and Great Yarmouth is famous for its funfair and Sea Life Centre. For the more active holidaymaker, there is cycle and canoe hire available nearby.

There are many stately homes, gardens and wildlife centres to visit. The North Norfolk coastal towns of Sheringham and Cromer and the wild coastline around Blakeney, famous for its seal watching, are about 30 minutes drive away.
