THE THREE BROADSKETEERS

John, Lee and Ben are dedicated explorers of the Broads National Park located in Norfolk, England, and this is the story of our travels. We walk, bike and canoe our way around one of the most beautiful areas of Britain, a magical wetland with loads of hidden places waiting to be discovered. The Three Broadsketeers are based at Clippesby Hall in the Broads National Park offering camping and caravan pitches and high quality self-catering holiday cottages.

We are passionate about gaining public access to as much of the land and waterways as possible in the peaceful pursuit of our aim – to Discover the Broads. Join in with our adventures….

 

The Three Broadsketeers welcome any feedback and would love to hear all about your own GREAT DAYS OUT on the Norfolk Broads. We can’t guarantee to publish them all, but we’ll do our best to check out your suggested itinerary and… if it passes muster… we’ll add it to our Blog above for others to enjoy.

The idea behind Discover the Broads is great – to use practical, local knowledge of a destination to help visitors explore and appreciate the real essence of the place. See you out there!

JONATHAN KNIGHT, Author, COOL CAMPING

The lap lapping of the weedy Bure,/A whispering and watery Norfolk sound.

SIR JOHN BETJEMAN, Poet

The long-ships drove up the Bure, and the horned men were there to rape and to burn,
Seeding their names, Rollesby and Billockby, Fleggburgh, Clippesby and Thurne – Poems from Oby, 1979

GEORGE MACBETH, Poet

A grey church tower, a windmill, or the dark-brown sail of a wherry in the distance breaks the sense of utter loneliness, but the scene is wild enough to enchain the imagination of many (1884)

G. CHRISTOPHER DAVIES

You either get Norfolk, with its wild roughness and uncultivated oddities, or you don’t. It’s not all soft and lovely. It doesn’t ask to be loved.
