Go on a Swallows and Amazons-style adventure

Stalham, Norfolk

Explore the sparkling, lock-free waterways of the Broads National Park, get up close to wildlife and kick back at a waterside pub for lunch.

A family boating holiday is a fantastic bonding experience, and the best way to enjoy the Broads National Park. Today’s cruisers are a home-from-home and you don’t need any previous experience to drive them. Full instruction is given before you set off, and there’s everything you need on board for a comfortable and carefree break.

Play pirates looking for treasure, or laze on deck while drifting past picturesque windmills and quiet meadows. Have dinner al fresco, and cuddle up for bedtime stories in your cosy cabin. Get up close to local wildlife in the reed margins, and stop at a riverside pub for lunch, followed by a walk under the vast open skies to work it off. Then cruise into the historic city of Norwich, or perhaps go to the beach at Great Yarmouth for some sea, sand and some warm, sugary donuts.
