This is our guide to the best of what Wroxham, the Broads and Norfolk have to offer.

Your best-ever fishing holiday

Here at River Cottages, you can go fishing from your back door. Or from your own rowing boat. Or from much of the 120 miles of navigable waterways. The near-limitless opportunities attract anglers from all over the country. On the Broads you can always find a quiet spot to yourself for an hour or two of undisturbed fishing. We help you get the best from Norfolk Broads fishing.

Go boating on the Broads

There's only one way to explore the Broads: by boat. When you're pottering along at no more than five miles an hour, you see the world differently. More to the point, you feel different. This is life in the slow lane; life without a care in the world. And all you have to do is hire a boat from a nearby boatyard or take a seat on one of the organised tours.

Norfolk is famous for its food and drink

Some people like their holidays to be effortless: no cooking and no washing up. You've come to the right place. Wroxham has a lively pub and plenty of restaurants and take-aways. Fancy something special? Norfolk is home to 20 restaurants featured in the Michelin Guide for 2020. Or maybe fish and chips is more your thing.
