A Walk OnThe Broads

Published: Monday 9th Dec 2013

Where better to go on a crisp, sunny autumn day than for a walk on the Norfolk Broads.

Armed with our trusty book of local walks, we headed across country to How Hill Nature Reserve which is owned by The Broads Authority. The beautiful thatched property is home to an Environmental Study Centre open to both adults and children.  From the car park there we walked down a quiet country lane to an archway through a hedge took us up onto the winding banks of the River Ant. There was not a house to be seen and the only sounds were the cries of the geese in the distance and the fluttering wings of a heron flying away across the reed beds.  The path bent round and rejoined the road which led us to Ludham after a brief walk.

A welcome lunch at a local inn refreshed us before our walk took us along green paths back to our car. A five and a half mile walk along level and easy paths was just the way to get colour in the cheeks and enjoy Norfolk out of season.Please click here to see some of our properties in this fantastic part of the county.
