Discover the ‘Southern Broads’ with Waterways Holidays

Boating holidays specialist Waterways Holidays has added Burgh St Peter on the River Waveney to its start points for boating holidays on the Broads, just in time for Easter.

“The Broads are officially the Norfolk and Suffolk Broads, but people tend to focus on the better-known Norfolk rivers,” says managing director Nigel Richards.

“The River Waveney marks the border between the two counties and Burgh St Peter is a superb start point for exploring peaceful waterways, quaint villages and towns and it offers easy access to the beautiful city of Norwich.”

The boats available to hire from Burgh St Peter all feature warm-air heating and ergonomically-designed kitchen and shower/wc facilities. The motor cruisers range from smaller boats ideal for a couple, up to a six-berth 36-feet model.

This Easter, a three-night weekend starting 12 April on Waveney Pisces, a 30-feet cruiser with a double cabin and convertible saloon seating for up to two children, costs £629 in total, offering great value for a young family.

Easter weekend itself starts at £670 for three-nights hire of Waveney Pegasus from Good Friday 19 April. This compact cruiser comfortably sleeps two in a king-sized bed in the bow cabin.

For larger parties, a week’s hire of Waveney Andromeda, which sleeps up to six, is £1496 from 13 April.

In all cases, hire includes collision damage waiver, bed-linen, buoyancy aids, car parking at base, initial tuition and the first tank of fuel. Some boats are pet-friendly at an additional charge.

In a weekend, it’s easy to explore to the pretty Suffolk towns of Beccles and Bungay, cruise north to the medieval city of Norwich, visit beautiful Somerleyton Hall (open from 18 April), or head towards the coast for Oulton Broad, Carlton Marshes nature reserve and charming Lowestoft.  A full week’s hire also allows time to cruise to Breydon Water and beyond to the northern Broads.
