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.
Ceri provided a lovely welcome pack, was extremely helpful but left us to enjoy the beautiful accommodation and location. The beds are so comfortable and comments in the visitors' book reflect everyt… More

Hi elaine ; we are disappointed you did not enjoy your holiday and your review seems completely out of kilter to the lovely reviews we have had from other guests. I think the problem u had was with Hemsby and not the chalet. . Hemsby is well suited to the majority of guests though we accept that a very small minority of guests do not share this view.
You made no attempt to contact us abou issues even though you had our contact details. We did phone you up 24 hrs into your holiday to make sure you had settled in comfortably and you made no mention of any issues so sorry but we are confused by your review? Hope you find something more suited to you in future holidays. regards richard
