With stunning views across the Waveney Valley, Staithe Farmhouse is a spacious, detached property situated at the southern end of the Broads National Park. It makes an ideal venue for larger family gatherings and celebrations, and guests have access to the superb facilities at Waveney River Centre including the indoor heated swimming pool (free), shop and The Waveney Inn, a family friendly destination pub, which serves a delicious menu of locally sourced, home cooked food and local ales. There is also a secret garden where children (and big kids!) can hide, explore the willow huts, climb the 'oak-osaur' and be close to a host of wildlife that makes its home there. You can fish at Waveney River Centre (closed season 15th Mar-15th Jun, NRA licence required).
A recommended way to explore the Broads is by hiring a day cruiser or canoe from Waveney River Centre to navigate the local waterways, which offer a magical experience for all ages. Carlton Marshes Nature Reserve is accessible via Waveney River Centre's ferry (free), and is a haven for wildlife with its grazing marsh, fen meadow and peat pool. An education centre will tell you all you need to know about this unique landscape but there are also excellent walking routes that can take you into Lowestoft and Oulton Broad, where you will find shops, bars, restaurants and a bustling area.
