Been coming to broads on and off for about 20 years since I was a child on hire boats, ranging from a hunters yacht to bigger cruisers. Looking to go again in June with family. Taking my son for the second time hoping that he falls in the love with the place as my husband did when he came the first time with me. Yet to pick our boat for this year yet but we may go for 10 nights instead of our usual 7 making the most of our last year of cheaper holidays as my son starts school on September. Could be interesting with 4 generations and a crazy dog but looking forward to it. Love reading about other people's experiences in the build up to a holiday.

Welcome along ... when my children were small we could take them out of school for up to two weeks each year if you got written permission, which was not a problem. The current rules must be making it hard for parents to afford holidays now.

Took our children on a hire boat when they were about 8 or 9. I think they enjoyed it but they don't show any signs of wanting to join us again now that we have rediscovered the Broads over the last few years. Maybe one day ...!
