The tranquil waterways, stunning landscapes, dazzling wildlife and rich history of the Norfolk Broads has long made them a favourite with visitors.
But the peaceful wetland has now been recognised as one of the leading destinations in the world, after being voted as one of the top family-friendly holiday hotspots in a nationwide poll.
The Broads have made it into a rollcall of the 50 best child-friendly destinations across the globe, coming in above Nice, St Tropez, Rome, Tuscany and New York.
It also pipped the Caribbean, Barcelona and Los Angeles to a higher position in the poll, commissioned by Holidaylettings.co.uk.
Chris Haycock, park manager at Clippesby Hall, hailed the Broads as family friendly and thought the fact it catered to all ages was among the qualities that made it so popular.
