We visited the Broadland Holiday Village in August for 7 days. It was just the three of us (our son being 20 months old) staying in a 1 bed bungalow with hot tub. We chose this because I remember Oulton Broad from years gone by and the price for an August holiday was little over £400 for the week including our exclusive use hot tub.
On arrival, the staff were very friendly and helpful and gave lots of opportunities to ask questions. Our bungalow was at the end of a terrace with a well equipped (compact but suitable) kitchen. The living room was quite large with two sofas, coffee table and 2 seater dining table. The hot tub was on decking immediately outside the patio door from the living room and enclosed with screening. The bedroom was compact but we got our travel cot in. My only grumble was the bed which was standard double and with a bar by the foot (being 6'5" is always a struggle) and so not the most comfortable.
The accommodation was very clean and tidy. The hot tub was warm and ready and best of all clean and was used well in the evening. The holiday village was compact with childrens play equipment dotted about but was very peaceful and well landscaped. Our son loved the swings. My wife used the pool and she said it was clean and never too busy. The club house was reasonable and good for a drink. The laundrette also came in handy.
In the locallity there is lots to do with Pets Corner a pleasant diversion for a couple of hours. The Nicholas Everett Park was lovely for a stroll in the evenings. Lowestoft beach and Great Yarmouth were surprisingly clean and made for great days out. Norwich is nearly an hour away and there was so much more we could have done.
We would love to go back maybe with extended family as this was such a lovely break with so much to do whatever the weather. It is also just over 2 hours from the M25 and a snip of the price of a Haven which we found pleasant but busy and noisy at night. By the way there is a railway station next to the site which is unobtrusive and useful for those without a car.
