The Broads National Park Distance from Swafield Hall 6 miles

A beautiful Nature Reserve, ideal for Walks, Cycling and Boating

“The Norfolk and Suffolk Broads is Britain’s largest protected wetland and third largest inland waterway, with the status of a national park. It’s also home to some of the rarest plants and animals in the UK. The Broads Authority was set up in 1989, with responsibility for conservation, planning, recreation and waterways.”

“The Broads is a fascinating and varied area with a rich history, reflected in the many wonderful places to visit and the unique wildlife. There are restored windmills, medieval churches, beautiful gardens and magnificent houses to visit. If you enjoy walking or cycling, there are also many routes to choose from. “

“The Broads has been a popular destination for boating holidays since the Victorians ‘discovered’ the pleasures of sailing its waterways in the late 19th century. Today’s boats are very easy to handle and are a most enjoyable way to see this unique and enchanting wetland, with over 125 miles (200 km) of lock-free waters to explore. Motor cruisers and yachts from 2-12 berth can be hired from boat yards throughout the Broads and are available weekly, as well as for short breaks and longer periods.”
