Near Swaffham?


Recommended Posts

Hi all

Can anyone help?
My elderly mother in law is currently staying in Swaffham, Norfolk. We are going to see her next week and her wish is to go to a 'Norfolk Broad'

I know Swaffham is a bit of a drive away from the broads but could someone help me by suggesting a Broad we can take her to, to just sit, watch and relax?  Somewhere with ice views, car park, tea shop etc.
She is not too good with walking.
Thank you very much

The Broads themselves are not that car friendly if you are not that good walking. Can only think of Malthouse, as Griff mentioned, or the Barton Boardwalk and then into Neatishead. Much more choice along the rivers. Coltishall, Stokesby and Reedham come immediately to mind.

Have you considered booking a trip on an excursion boat from Horning or Wroxham? You will always see a lot more being afloat than ashore.
