Norfolk Broads, The Waterside, Rollesby 

We woke up to yet another gloriously sunny day and after a fabulous breakfast of bacon, egg and beans cooked by our master chef, James.

We deliberated over whether to do a 30 minute boat trip or 2 hours on the Broads. We chose a quaint little boat called Gentlemam Jim at Rollesby Broad.

It would have been beautifully peaceful if we’d come without the girls. Our boat driver gave us some interesting history which the girls didn’t listen to and we spotted some interesting wildlife. 

We then finished with a bit of crazy golf (which Sophie hated) and a play in the playground.

Lunch was at the Acle Bridge Inn next to the river in Acle. It has a fun playground with an adjoining arcade full of the usual arcade games. Food was pretty standard pub fare which was a little disappointing given our proximity to the coast. We were looking forward to some seafood or a cosy country pub…

After lunch we drove to the Gunton Arms pub for a drink and to chase the deer (we should have had lunch here!!). Really annoyed we found such a nice pub on our last night, especially after visiting 2 quite mediocre ones. 

Lizzy’s favourite part of today was the boat ride and playing crazy golf. Sophie’s best part was “being silly” and James’ favourite was seeing some Pike waiting to attack smaller fish. 


One thought on “Norfolk Broads, The Waterside, Rollesby 

  1. Am familiar with Cromer from my youth! Yes-the sea is very cold even in summer. No Gulf Stream. Been researching gates and then started reading FArnham Herald only to learn that gate theft is prolific of late!! So will be choosing a cheap option.

    Beautiful day here. Much love to all, Mum/Omaxxxxx
