Press Release: February 05, 2010
If youre looking for a different type of holiday, a boating holiday courtesy of Richardsons Boating Holidays is perhaps your best bet. The company has more than 50 years of experience in offering self driven boat holidays up and down the Norfolk Broads. There are a number of different holiday packages available, including packages for adults only and for families. Richardsons offers a number of different pricing options, too, and many of these boating holidays are affordable for those on a budget.
Richardsons Boating Holidays has a large number of ships available. These cruisers can sleep anywhere from one couple to a dozen or more. Many offer luxuries such as televisions, refrigerators, microwaves, hot and cold running water, a fully equipped galley, luscious carpet in the cabins, DVD players, and more. Some even allow you to bring your pets along on your boating holiday.
Some people may be a bit nervous about a self driven boat holiday, but there is no experience needed. A Richardsons employee will walk all guests through everything needed to run the boat, including taking them on a trial run and docking procedure. All questions will be answered before the boat leaves the dock, and in case any new questions come up, a full users manual is onboard.
Once aboard, guests can fish, make stops at a number of docks to explore the shore, and in general take their time cruising up the Norfolk Broads. Boating holidays can be anywhere from three or four days to upwards of several weeks. There are five different rivers located throughout the area that guests can explore, including the Bure, Thurne, Ant, Waveney, and Yare. There are also a number of shallow lakes along the way that are great for fishing. All in all, there are almost 200 kilometres to explore. Richardsons has two different docks guests can depart from, one located to the north in Stalham and the other more centrally located in Acle.
Guests will need to bring a number of different things with them on their boating holiday. While a galley with cooking utensils and crockery is provided, they will need to provide all food and drink. Guests will need to provide towels as well, although bedding is provided. Cleaning materials and toilet rolls are also necessary.
Richardsons offers a number of great special offers throughout the year. This includes their spring and autumn supersaver months. During April, May, September, and October, with the exception of Bank Holidays, guests can take advantage of a ten percent discount on all boating holidays.
