Where better to discover our magical waterways than staying in a holiday cottage in the Capital of the Broads! Wroxham is a prime centre location for hiring sailing craft, for a few hours or a full day. Strictly, the area north of the river Bure is Hoveton and it is here that the well-known Roys of Wroxham has developed, however both areas are now commonly known as Wroxham.
You can hire not only cruisers but canoes are also popular, heading downstream, enjoy birdwatching and wildlife spotting as you drift through this unique area. Cycling, walking and fishing are just some of the things you can enjoy in this holiday location.
Wroxham Barns in Hoveton, is open all year round and well worth a visit especially if you have younger children, here you will find a hands-on junior farm, mini adventure golf, funfair, and train rides, plus adults will enjoy visiting too with independent food, fashion & craft shops along with a restaurant serving delicious freshly prepared locally sourced food.
Another top attraction is the award winning BeWilderwood – a fantastic outdoor adventure park, whether you are eight or eighty you are encouraged to get lost in the magical world of twiggles & boggles and explore the many treehouses, jungle bridges, and zip-wires. With the vibrant historic city of Norwich just seven miles away and the nearest beach at Sea Palling just ten miles away it is easy to see why Wroxham is a perfect holiday destination for discovering more than just the beauty of the Broads.
