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.
“Fantastic !!” Travelled as 2 adults and 2 11/12 year olds. We had a lovely stay at Seymour Cottage. The cottage itself was very comfy cosy and homely. The location was perfect with everything you need within walking distance, lovely pub opposite, fish

Dear Mrs R Jackson
We were very surprised to read on trip advisor of your experience at Sailaway as you said nothing of your complaint whilst staying at Sailaway or at your departure.
We have recently invested in a new top of the range hot tub which was installed along with new decking and lighting a couple of weeks prior to your stay. This model of hot tub is totally different to the previous one. On installation we were supplied and trained on the use, maintenance and health safety. This particular model is nothing like they were 15 years ago, the jets are much more powerful and give a massage as well as heating the water at a higher temperature.
We take great care to ensure our guests have a delightful, relaxing and safe stay with us, and , take pride in providing 99.9% of our guests with a memorable stay as you can see from our previous reviews.
As for the parking we have an allocated space for our guests in front of our office - at the front of the house.
Terence & Annette.
