Visiting the Norfolk Broads

Being located on the stunning Norfolk Coast, Seacroft Holiday Village is within close reach of Norfolk’s wetlands, the beautiful Broads National Park. Loved by locals and holidaymakers alike, visiting the Norfolk Broads is simple, being easily accessible by both foot and water making it a peaceful and relaxing way to spend the day!

By Boat

Visiting the Norfolk Broads by boat is one of the most relaxing ways to do so!

One of the best ways to explore the Broads is by day boat. We also
manage and run Richardson’s Day Boat Hire, which is located in Wroxham and just a 30-minute drive from Seacroft. With easy-to-drive launches and full instruction given before you depart, we also provide buoyancy aids free of charge – so all you need is yourself (and maybe a picnic)! There are many peaceful villages and destinations around the Northern Broads – why not take leisurely cruise from our Wroxham Marina to Potter Heigham, home to Lathams? A well-loved discount store, it welcomes locals and holidaymakers alike to find a bargain. You could also stop for a bite to eat in The Galley in Horning, an intimate café with an attached delicatessen.

By Land

There are many sights to see by land when visiting the Norfolk Broads.

If you prefer to explore with your feet firmly on the ground, then the closest nature reserve to Seacroft Holiday Village is Martham Broad. Featuring two shallow Broads split by the River Thurne, the Broad is surrounding by fen, reedbeds, and marsh. It’s a breeding spot for Norfolk wildlife such as bittern, and you may even see a marsh harrier! The reserve is also home to the elusive Swallowtail butterfly, as well as other hard-to-see wildlife such as otters. The teddy-bear-faced Chinese water deer are also easy to see here. This is the perfect spot to see some nature and take in the beauty of the Broads from land!

You can find out more about things to do in the Broads on our Richardson’s Boating Holidays website.
