Accommodation for a relaxing break on the Norfolk Broads is just a click away. East Anglia has much to offer in the way of holidays, but a break on the Broads is a truly English retreat.
The Norfolk Broads are a series of inland waterways stretching from the heart of Norfolk down through Suffolk and out to the coast. The beautiful landscape is a jumble of broads (wider waterways), canals, lakes and rivers with charming towns and villages dotted throughout.
There are cottages for hire throughout the area and if all you want to do is relax, then the peaceful Broads are the perfect setting. Many visit the area to try their hand at sailing for the first time, and the area is also ideal for fishing. The Broads constitute Britain's largest protected wetland area so are a holiday hot spot for bird watchers and wildlife fans alike.
