Winter Holidays in the UK

With many holidays having been cancelled, you may be thinking that while you would love a holiday, the coming months are going to be too cold to enjoy a holiday. That’s where we come in. 

We have compiled a list of why winter holidays are in fact, some of the best and most memorable holidays. Whether you prefer staying in the warmth of a luxurious holiday lodge, fitted with a hot tub, or are a little more on the adventurous side and would love a week glamping in norfolk with a wood burner so you’re never too cold, a holiday here at Waveney River Centre could be ideal for you. All of these come with the added benefit of being situated on the Broads and Carlton Marshes so you can be sure to witness some beautiful scenery and exciting wildlife. 

Luxury Lodges 

We can’t think of anything better than being snuggled up with the family, drinking hot chocolate whilst staying in a luxurious lodge surrounded by picturesque scenery and wildlife. If this wasn’t enough to convince you, then just wait until you imagine yourself relaxing in your hot tub. Our lodges with hot tubs are hugely popular amongst our customers, all of whom love the relaxing, tranquil experience they have whilst looking out on to the marshes. Each lodge has a private area around it, ensuring that you maintain the maximum amount of privacy during your stay. The cold weather won’t mean a thing to you when you are soaking in the hot tub, and all of your worries will melt away. You deserve this holiday. 


If you’d prefer something a little more adventurous, but don’t want to fully commit to camping, especially with the colder months on the horizon, then glamping would be perfect for you. Our spacious yurts come with wood burners, keeping you warm on those chillier nights. These yurts have all of the benefits of camping, such as being surrounded by nature and allowing you to escape from the busy city life, without the drawbacks of uncomfortable beds, the hassle of setting up and taking down your tent, and most importantly without the freezing toes in the morning. If you love camping but your plans to go were ruined in recent months, then you don’t have to miss out. Take a look at our Yurts, and camp in style and in comfort. 

Waveney Inn

If you’re at all worried that the cold weather will mean you will be stuck on the Park with nowhere to go, do not fear. Waveney Inn is highly recommended within the local community and our customers. With fantastic food at great prices, come in and enjoy a nice meal with your family. With lots to choose from on the menu, you’re guaranteed to find something for everyone. Dogs are also welcome, so no need to leave your four-legged friends out in the cold. 


If you’re someone who enjoys frosty walks and holidays which are quieter and more tranquil, then Waveney River Centre is just what you need. During the winter months we are definitely less busy than during the summer season, but don’t let this deter you. To experience the Broads and Carlton marshes in the winter is a truly unique experience. With lots of wildlife scared away during the busier months, they begin to resurface when we get less busy. The winter months are the perfect time of year to truly experience all the Broads has to offer in terms of wildlife. Not to mention how beautiful the scenery is with a touch of frost in the morning, we cannot think of anything quite like it. With lots of trails to explore and even boats to hire, come explore the Broads at its most peaceful. In addition to this, the park’s facilities are perfect for use in winter months. Our indoor heated swimming pool will ensure that you can enjoy some fun in the pool without the dreaded cold jump in. With a play park and a secret garden to explore, your kids will never experience a dull moment. Our riverside location makes us the perfect place for a fishing trip, open all winter until March, you can enjoy a spot of fishing and are sure to find a catch in the quieter months. With so much to do, you’re guaranteed a fun filled stay.
