Norfolk Broads - to escape city life!
The Broads is a network of waterways through Norfolk and Suffolk counties formed through the flooding of peat workings. This national park consisting of man-made rivers and lakes has become a popular holiday spot for those seeking time away from city life.
While this area can be explored from the car, it’s best to get out and see it up close! With a vast array of wildlife, this sprawling park is known for its butterflies, deer, and otter but also for its plentiful birds. Twitchers may find barn owls, bitterns, kingfishers, red shanks, and lapwings. More than a quarter of Britain’s rarest animals call this area home.
The wildlife of the broads is set inside a picturesque landscape of some of the most striking colours of sunrises and sunsets in the country. Market towns and villages with iconic windmills overlook the horizon of this exceptional area creating perfect photographs. Don’t miss this must-see area on your static caravan holiday.

See Cambridge by punt, cycle, bus or foot!
The city of Cambridge is well renowned for its University, but its large botanical gardens, museums, fantastic restaurants and colourful markets aren’t to be missed. You may wish to see the city via several modes of transport that students and visitors have been using for decades.
The quintessential transport to see Cambridge is via a charming boat ride in a punt. This is a top attraction to these historic cities because visitors can relax and enjoy a few hours of guided tour. Whether you want to try your hand at rowing one yourself or you’d rather have someone else do the hard part, punting along the River Cam is an iconic way to see the King’s College Chapel or the Mathematical Bridge.
Walking tours are another way to see this city up close. Tours will most often include the surrounding areas of the University as well other local sites such as The Senate House, Trinity College, and the River Cam.
