The Norfolk Broads offers a combination of expansive waterways and bed and breakfast accommodation that's unrivalled elsewhere in Great Britain. While the canal ways found in other parts of the country allow those with live-aboard accommodation to go between countryside towns, the Norfolk broads lets holidaymakers explore in any direction without any locks to navigate. Houseboats are still a popular option but the majority of bed and breakfasts on the broads are found in villages like Stalham and South Walsham.
Sailing on the Norfolk broads can be challenging and is not recommended for inexperienced sailors. Renting a "broads cruiser" on the other hand is easy and can usually be arranged by speaking to the host at your B&B. With a cruiser you can explore the entire Norfolk broads lake system, a classic route being from Wroxham to Acle (both with railway access) past the reeds and windmills of the Ranworth broad.
Here in Norfolk it's not unheard of to start the day with spead of cold seafood and a hot cup of tea. In Salthouse, Cookie's Crab Shop opens as 9am every morning, or if you're in less of a rush you can take your breakfast on Wells Quay where the morning's catch of cockles, roll mops and razor clams.
