If you are living in the United Kingdom, (Not exclusively) and wish to have a totally relaxing holiday away from it all then you could do far worse than booking a holiday in one of the Norfolk Broads Cottages.
For those who have never considered them the Norfolk Broads is a wonderful stretch of interlocking lakes and rivers that stretch across large areas of Britain's largest wetlands. There are over 300 square kilometers of Waterways of which over 200 can be navigated in anyone of the numerous craft which are found there. In essence the area is made up of 63 lakes (Broads) some of which are large and others which are little more than ponds and 7 different rivers. The broads themselves are tidal but the tidal flow reduces the further away one gets from the coast. From Barton in the North upward there is virtually no tidal effect discernible.
There are many ways to enjoy the broads. With the miles and miles of river frontage anywhere one goes one is almost at peace with nature and there is a wide variety of birdlife and some unique small animals to be found.
There are a wide variety of self catering riverside, broadside or marina based cottages to enjoy a Norfolk cottage holiday. Being by the waterside is remarkably relaxing. There is something about the presence of open water, of the abundant bird life and the gentle lapping that seems to melt away the cares and stresses of the city life. Of course the waterside does present hazards if children are unable to swim so constant supervision is required. Wearing of life jackets is highly recommended by small children and these are provided if requested.
Norfolk Broads Cottages come in a large variety of shapes and sizes, there are the small and cosy and there are some luxurious 6 and 8 sleeper cottages available. In order to find one that suits your needs it is recommended that you click on Norfolk Broads Cottages and enter the information in the search box. It asks you for the type of accommodation required and the dates requested.
So, for example if you request a cottage for a full week for a family of 4 for the week of & July 2012 to 14 July 2012 it may offer you a Norfolk cottage holiday at Mallard which is a 2 storey, 2 bedroom cottage at the entrance to the boatyard with water frontage and views of the boats in the harbour. Or asking for a week in Mid June may offer you another 2 bed roomed timber built cottage on the Marina in Swan.
While at these cottages it is possible to rent small craft for days outings on the waterways or go on canal cruises to view the extensive bird life and the wetlands which are areas of great natural beauty. There are riverside pubs to stop and have a pub lunch.
There are miles and miles of gentle cycle tracks to explore this unspoiled area away from the water should you so desire. A short break on the Broads is a great way to recharge yourself.
Norfolk Broads Cottages are available for a truly relaxing break in the biggest wetlands in the UK.
