Self Catering Holiday Homes – Our holidays homes are all waterside, have beautiful views and lovely gardens or balconies. From two bedroom to five bedroom, they are modern and spacious, the perfect place to relax, unwind and maybe do some fishing. Each property can enjoy the benefit of a Day Boat (except during school holidays), so you can get out and about exploring the waterways and visiting local towns & villages.
Probably the last thing you want to think about at the moment is Christmas, but it is only ten weeks away.
Why not take a short break or Autumn holiday in one of our waterside holiday homes, and do your Christmas shopping at the same time.
Roys of Wroxham is a nationally renowned store on two sites right next to Wroxham’s famous bridge and within a 5 minutes walk of our holiday homes. Thought to be the largest village store in the world you should be able to get everything you need in one place without having to play ‘elbow rugby’ in the large department stores in the city or fighting for parking spaces in the run up to Christmas. Altogether a much more leisurely affair and you can even leave the gentlemen behind at the Lodge to fish – everyones happy!
Daisy Broad holiday home
Shoals of fish are currently leaving the faster flowing rivers for the yacht basins – closely followed by the predator Pike.
If you do want to go into Norwich, there are all the main department stores and two large shopping malls, you can simply hop on the train a short walk away from your holiday home. The city centre is less than a ten minute bus ride away.
It won’t be long before the children are back to school and there are fewer people on the Broads it is then the rivers take on a very different pace of life as everything becomes more calm.
There is something magical about autumn holidays on the Broads, finding a quiet mooring is easier, the village pubs are less crowded and people who love the area for its sheer tranquility and beautiful sunsets tend to take their holidays.
To appreciate the area’s natural beauty we advise people to drop the mud weight and moor in the middle of a Broad, to hear the birds saying goodnight and hear the rhythmic wing beats of geese in flight. Or to find a mooring far away from the villages and simply relax in total peace and quiet.
Fishermen appreciate this period, as there are fewer boats to disturb them; and bird spotters can roam along the banks in silence looking for rare species like the bittern and marsh harriers
Sunset on the River Bure
