I always find that as soon as I return from one holiday, I start planning another. Next year, we’re going to Brittany for a couple of weeks in the summer, and are also hoping to get away in the UK for a week.
I’ve been talking to Norfolk-based Richardson’s Boating about their fab self-drive boating holidays on the Norfolk Broads – my sister in law did this last year with her sister and family and absolutely loved it. Richardson’s are a lovely bunch – a family-owned company, with over 50 years’ experience and over 300 Norfolk Broads cruisers in their fleet. This means that they can provide everything from a cheerful little two bedroom boat of a big huge boat for a larger family or group of friends.
One of things I love about this sort of holiday is its low impact on the environment. Richardson’s are big on conservation and have been developing a low-wash hull, which less impact on the riverbanks, thus helping to preserve the wildlife this area is famous for. They are also introducing new, more efficient solar panels on our new boats.
So if you’re planning on a UK break, check them out – you get to go at your own pace (and yes, I asked about those of us who are slightly ‘technically challenged’ – they give you a very full and thorough demo on how to drive the boat!).
So to find out everything you need to know, check out Richardson’s Boating Norfolk Broads cruiser hire. In the meantime, Richardson’s have given me a very tidy £100 John Lewis voucher to give away, just in time for Christmas shopping.
To enter just check out Richardson’s fleet (click link then scroll down) – I quite fancy the Ibiza – and let me know which one you’d choose!
Competition is open to anyone and everyone (vouchers can be used in store at John Lewis and Waitrose and online too). Winner will be chosen at random, no cash alternative. Competition closes at Midnight on Monday 19th November 2012. Just call me Mrs Christmas!
