The Norfolk Broads

Think that the Broads aren’t dog friendly? Think again!  So many of our local boat hire companies will welcome dogs and so many of our guests have taken their dogs out exploring the fabulous Norfolk Broads network.  The peace and quiet and beauty can be amazing and if you are lucky you will see otters and kingfishers as well as other water birds, herons, fish jumping etc.  For example, at Hickling Broad there is a great little boatyard, Whispering Reeds,  only a short walk from one of our loveliest big houses, Red Roofs.

At Potter Heigham, Richardsons boat yard will hire you out all sorts of craft and if you stay at either of our riverside cabins, Patikipa or Milldene you can hire a boat from the owner and moor it up right outside the house!

Of course the walks in the Broads are are fabulous too. Have a look here for some great ideas for walks or you can pick up an Ordnance Survey map and make up your own and get well off the beaten track!
