Enjoy the best of both worlds on the Norfolk Broads. Stay in a lovely riverside cottage and have exclusive use of a motorised day boat during your stay. Go off exploring the 200 square miles of navigable waterways throughout the Broads and return to the comfort of your holiday cottage for BBQ by the river or a spot of riverbank fishing.
There are many lovely villages, Broadland pubs, windmills, country parks and nature reserves to visit with many best accessible by boat.
So much choice and a great set of adventures to head off on your boat. How about mooring up at old renovated Horsey Windpump and walk across to the sandy beach at Horsey Mere and see the sealions, the young cubs can also be seen on the beach at this time of year. Another good idea is to head off to the lovely country park at Salhouse Broad and walk up to the popular Fur & Feathers Inn which offers some excellent local ales from the Woodhouse Brewery only a few yards away!
The three riverside pubs in Horning are always popular haunts by boat offering excellent food and a chance to watch all the other boats and traditional sailing craft drift by. You may even see the lovely and distinctive old 1915 White Moth sailing wherry on your travels which is a joy to see in full sail.
If you love fishing then having a boat opens up so much choice, you can pull up alongside the riverbank in an idyllic spot, get out the picnic, sit back, relax and see what bites!
There is a wide choice of holiday cottages with boats in lovely locations in the Norfolk Broads throughout the year but as you would expect these are some of the most popular. See a short selection below or visit our website for ideas and prices – Norfolk Broads Holiday Cottages with boats
