Grand Lodge - Horning, Norfolk, The Norfolk Broads, England - Sleeps 4-6

Grand Lodge

The Grand Lodge sleeps four guests (or six with the use of a sofa bed) and is one of two log cabin style houseboats, affording a waterside location in a small marina in the picturesque Broadland village of Horning. Right in the very heart of the Norfolk Broads, Horning's ancient village is a popular holiday destination with a good choice of pubs, tea rooms shops for gifts and provisions, boat hire and even a fitness centre with indoor pool - all a short stroll from Grand Lodge.

Spend your days sitting on the decking by the water, or hire a boat from the village and explore the magical waterways under your own steam. You can fish from the large sunny decking at the front of the lodge, and stroll out for a leisurely lunch or supper in one of the riverside pubs.

For those who want to see Norfolk's many attractions, there are plenty of great day trips out to enjoy. Visit nearby Wroxham (referred to as the 'capital of the Broads' and a bustling village with Roy's, the largest village store in the world), or BeWILDerwood for a treetop adventure for the little ones which is sure to be a holiday highlight (just five minutes in the car from the houseboats). Wroxham Barns is also worth visiting for independent shopping, food and fun, or take a nostalgic ride on the Bure Valley Steam Railway which runs between Wroxham and the attractive market town of Aylsham.

Head to Norwich (just eight miles away) for some city life, or the Norfolk coast for some traditional seaside fun at Great Yarmouth with its glorious gardens, promenade and expansive sandy beach. Winterton-on-sea has a vast long sandy beach where you can stretch your legs and see the large seal colony, or visit one of the country houses and estates of Sandringham, Blickling and Felbrigg Hall.

Alternatively, stay locally and enjoy relaxing and having fun on the water, riverside walks, leisurely cycle rides and long lazy pub lunches.
