Whether fishing or boating, or just enjoying the many pubs and restaurants of this unique region, this is a stunning part of the UK in which to take a self-catering holiday.

The Norfolk Broads offers a timeless and tranquil landscape, with some spectacular wildlife to view along its picturesque waterways, from Marsh Harriers and Bitterns to otters and Swallowtail butterflies.

The Broads town of Potter Heigham is a thriving resort with its waterside bungalows, famous Latham’s discount store, pub and newsagent. The medieval bridge over the River Thurne is another striking local landmark and there are also some fantastic riverside walks as well as plenty of opportunities to take to the water and hire a boat.

Close by is Hickling Broad Nature Reserve, the largest expanse of open water in the Broads, and a mecca for sailors, bird-watchers and walkers with a Visitor Centre run by the Norfolk Wildlife Trust. The best way to explore is by boat, or along the Weavers Way footpath on the southern edge of the Broad.
