The Norfolk village of Coltishall, only 6 miles from Norwich and set on the edge of the Broads, offers plenty of romantic things to do by the river.
Tucked behind an ancient church is the 4-star Norfolk Mead boutique hotel, an idyllic retreat with award-winning AA Rosette restaurant. Individually appointed rooms plus a garden cottage and summerhouse ensures this small luxury hotel is a secluded place for any waterside weekend country break. Recent additions include 2 one-bedroom suites and a spa.
There are plenty of romantic things to do. Enjoy a day out in the Mead’s own boat, leisurely sailing the River Bure, taking in the tranquil English countryside. Moor up and indulge in a pint or G&T or, in true poetic style, dine from a picnic hamper bursting with seasonal goodies made to order by the hotel.
Saunter through the village browsing antiques and take a steam train ride on the Bure Valley Railway before returning to the hotel for a pre-dinner drink on the terrace.
