We have just experienced one of the best holidays we have ever had. The staff at Herbert Woods are exceptional. We will definitely be returning next year. The boat was lovely and touring around the Broads was amazing.

“Norfolk, Northern broads”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

Liked: Peaceful time on the river watching the world go by. Time for fishing or just relaxing. Food at the bridge Inn, Acle.
Disliked: Speed merchants who used the boats for transport only, particularly returning to the Northern broads from Great Yarmouth.

Hi Jo,

Thank you so much for your kind review. It sounds like you had a great time, I think 100 fish must be some kind of record! We look forward to seeing you again next year and remember you will get a 5% loyalty discount.

I am going to go and show this to all the members of staff mentioned, it will make their day! :)
