Holiday Cottages in Norfolk
The Norfolk Broads

The Norfolk Broads are a not just a gigantic nature reserve and the playground for people who love birds and boats. They're just as wonderful if you just want to chill out by the water and relax with a drink, if you'd like to explore small village with inviting looking pubs and delicious menus or even if you're a keen photographer.

We took the tandem around the small lanes that wind between the Broads on one of our recent visits. You don't get to see much water while you're riding, but it's very peaceful and there's no need to hunt for parking when you get to a boardwalk leading into the broads to explore the watery side of Norfolk.

When it comes to making a temporary home in the Broads, your options are wide open. There are holiday cottages in Norfolk to fit any style of holiday - whether you love to mess around in boats or not. So here's a little selection to get you in the mood for a holiday on the Norfolk Broads.
