Christmas holidays in the Norfolk Broads
Imagine yourself tucked up warm against the elements, watching Norfolk’s wildlife float past your window.
We can’t think of a better way for you to spend the festive season with your friends and family.
Fresh Air in Norfolk Broads over Christmas and New Year
Should you choose to brave the elements, you would have your own day-boat on hand. Ready to explore the River Bure. (The dayboat is included free in the cost of the holiday)
Whilst using your boat, we’d recommend a stop off on route. Any excuse for a warm-up, and, possibly an opportunity to sample some local produce.
To get you in the spirit you might stop off for a tour around Woodfords Brewery, right next to the Fur and Feather Inn. (20 mins by car or about 25 mins by boat and a 20 min walk from Salhouse Broad)
Alternatively enjoy the warmth of welcome at the Hotel Wroxham, (5 to 10 mins by boat or foot) or travel a little further to the New Inn at Horning (10 mins by car or 1 hour by boat) And pop over to the
We think these pubs also offer a good selection of seasonal meals making them worth a try.
If you take a walk around St Benets Abbey. (1.5 hours by boat or 15 mins by car) Don’t forget to take your camera. You can grab your own picture of this most photographed icon of the Norfolk Broads. There is a great circular walking route here…
Brave people may choose to take part in the boxing day swim at Cromer. A slightly less bracing option might involve a brisk walk further down the coast at Horsey. Check out the seal colony as it coincides with the breeding season. The seal pups at Horsey are very, very cute.
Christmas Holiday Shopping in the Norfolk Broads
Well you are spoilt for choice here. Within walking distance of our Holiday Homes you will find the “Largest” village store. Roys have a huge selection of gifts, toys, clothes, food and alcohol. I believe they will even sell you a kitchen sink at their DIY store. A little further afield you’ll find Wroxham Barnes, they
Available Accommodation from Barnes Brinkcraft
We have 15 individual holiday homes. The largest sleep 8 people with a mix of twin and double rooms. The smallest sleep 4. All have riverside access for fishing
Some of the apartments can be linked together (via a door between the properties) which makes it possible to sleep 16 under one roof.
We won’t have any pictures of the Sail Loft available until just before Christmas, but we are confident that the guys will do a great job.
All our holiday cottages are situated on the waterside, and Barnes Brinkcraft includes a dayboat for free during the Christmas holidays.
Good to Know
The locals will tell you that Roys of Wroxham (Also known as the worlds largest village store), is a great place to pick up last-minute food and presents.
The great news is that you won’t face the usual hoard of shoppers experienced in major shopping areas over the Christmas Holidays
