About Braemar

Braemar is in the peaceful village of Salhouse on the Norfolk Broads, within walking distance of the village tearoom and two pubs, and only a mile from the River Bure and Salhouse Broad. It's a wonderful spot for a relaxing family holiday at any time of the year. The beautiful Broads landscape never has an "off" day - it's always Instagram ready, just like this pretty thatched Grade II listed cottage that dates from 1714 and sleeps five people in three bedrooms.

Salhouse is one of the most desirable villages in the Broads. It has two pubs - The Bell Inn and The Fur and Feather and a tearoom. Salhouse Broad will leave you breathless. This ancient waterway and the surrounding countryside are a haven for birds and wildlife. Salhouse is protected as part of an Internationally Important Wetland, which indicates just how special this place is. The sheltered broad has a small beach where you can swim, and local businesses hiring boats, canoes and paddleboards, so you have fun on, in and around the water.

Wroxham is just over two miles from Braemar. Sure, you can drive there, but it's much more enjoyable to take your time and walk, cycle or sail there, allowing yourself to appreciate the flora and fauna you'll pass on the way. Wroxham is well-serviced with amenities, and there are lots of places to eat, drink and shop. Browse in Roy's of Wroxham, the world's largest village store, or stop by Wroxham Barns Craft Centre, where there's always something to delight the kids. Hoveton Hall and the heritage Bure Valley Steam Railway are two more attractions to add to your itinerary.

Horning is around six miles from Braemar. It is the home of BeWILDerwood, the RAF Air Defence Radar Museum, and the Southern Comfort Mississippi Paddle Boat. You can spend the day on Horsey Beach, walking along the soft sand and watching the local seal colony. Other activities within easy reach include marvelling at the magnificence of Holkham Hall and estate, Crabbing at Wells-next-the-Sea, birdwatching, walking and cycling around the coast, beside the broads, and through the countryside.
