This year we took our Broads holidays in late June and early September, just wondering what time of the year you prefer ?

We like March  and XMAS but during the rest of the year we have short breaks,just before or after i must admit. just before or after school holidays is good , not that we do not like children but for some strange reason the price rockets because they are on holiday. i think it would be better to offer FAMILES a good price in school hols . strange lot us BRITS

We always go down at the beginning of June, well the weekend after the bank-holiday:
(1) there's a slight dip in prices
(2) the rivers are 'relatively' quiet, although that makes getting boat numbers for the database more difficult
(3) the Three Rivers Race is always starting on that Saturday, so we can sit in the New Inn (Horning) and enjoy the spectacle.

Until last year, when my wife managed to get early retirement from teaching, we always had to use school holidays, so we have habitually hired at Easter (whenever it occurred, late-March to mid-April), October half-term, and Christmas/New Year. Also a couple of times (starting 1995 when Pat wanted to "see what Hell was like"), we have tried August. Easter is easily the busiest these days - August is surprisingly quiet. October has been wet, shirt-sleeves weather, and everything between. Christmas is of course glorious - just be prepared for coolth. We have had reports of super times in February (on our agenda before long).

In short, ANY time is good!

As we often say, if you holiday in England any time of year, you get the weather you are given.

For a boating holiday, I would suggest June. Long days and less crowded once the whit holiday is over.
I live here all the time now so every day is a holiday, but before I did so, I used to come up and stay in a riverside bungalow as many weekends as I could. I would say that the winter is a great time to visit The Broads. You can't beat those crisp January frosts with clear blue skies.

On an impulse we have booked Royal Satin for Thursday 28th October to Thurs. 4th November. Heavy weather gear being set aside in anticipation. Anyone likely to be around to meet us somewhere?

I took Woodwose for a run down to South Walsham today. Lovely sunny weather if a bit on the cool side.
You can get nice weather any time on The Broads. The place changes with the seasons and every time to come here is a good time.
I think that is what this thread is saying.
