Barnham Broom is part of the Holiday Property Bond portfolio offering exclusive access to over 1,400 properties to its 42,000 investors across more than 30 locations. You can find out more about Barnham Broom below, but first a brief explanation about the Holiday Property Bond.

A. How can I holiday better?

Invest from £5,000 in the Holiday Property Bond for exclusive access to a portfolio of over 1,400 top quality villas, cottages and apartments in over 30 locations across the UK and Europe. For each £1 invested you will receive one Holiday Point each year which you can use to book the properties. And when staying in them you do not pay a commercial rent, just a no-profit user charge covering actual running, maintenance and refurbishment costs. This charge is level throughout the year so there are no high season premiums. For a studio the charge averages about £315 a week, for a two bedroom property around £480 a week. Larger properties are also available. This no-profit user charge is only payable when you want to go on holiday. Your only ongoing commitment is a quarterly fee of just over £30 – that is around £130 a year.

B. Will there be more properties in the future?

As we attract more investors the more properties we will add to the portfolio – increasing your holiday choice still further.

C. How long can I holiday with HPB?

For life if you wish – the holiday benefits last as long as you hold the Bond. In due course you can pass it and the holiday benefits to your children and grandchildren, as many of our earlier investors have already done. If, however, at some point you and your family no longer wish to holiday with us you can surrender your Bond back to the company after two years or more (subject to deferral in exceptional circumstances). You will not get back the full amount you invested, although we would hope that you will have had some wonderful holidays. What you do get back will reflect initial charges (25%) taken before your money is invested in the HPB fund of holiday properties and securities. The fund itself also pays annual charges of around 2.5% and other overheads. The value of the fund’s properties and securities can also go up or down and so, like most investments, your capital is at risk.

Set in 250 acres of some of Norfolk's finest countryside, in the beautiful River Yare valley, Barnham Broom Golf and Country Club overlooks the fairways of two championship 18-hole golf courses. It offers self-contained lodge apartments and a wide range of leisure facilities, including tennis and squash courts, an indoor swimming pool, steam room, spa and restaurants.

Immortalised through the paintings of John Constable, neighbouring Suffolk has its own particular appeal. The wider East Anglia region boasts numerous fascinating historical sites, ranging from Colchester's Bronze Age hill forts and incredible Roman remains to the half-timbered Elizabethan villages, cathedral and castle in Norwich.

Norfolk has so much to offer couples and families. If the 100 miles of coastline doesn't tempt you, then maybe the nature reserves bursting with wildlife will. Of course, there's also the famous Broads, historic towns and villages, incredible stately homes and pretty windmills, too. It's a fantastic place to visit all year round.

Discover the varied coastline

Every beach and seaside resort in Norfolk is different from the last, so it's worth visiting as many as you can. Holkham is known as the best beach in the region, thanks to its four-miles of golden sand. The kids will love running around and creating sandcastles here.

Cromer, on the other hand, puts on some amazing seaside shows, which take place in a pavilion on the end of the stunning Victorian pier. Not much can beat the famous 'Golden Mile' in Great Yarmouth, though, which boasts a wide range of attractions, arcades and rides.

We also recommend visiting Hunstanton in the late afternoon. You'll want to see the beautiful striped cliffs in the daylight, and then stick around for the gorgeous sunsets in the evening.

Have fun outside with the family

Your little ones will never be bored in Norfolk, as there are so many outdoor attractions to keep them busy! BeWILDerwood is an award-winning adventure park where kids can take part in marsh walks and boat trips, explore treehouses and zoom down zip wires. Alternatively, High Lodge in Thetford Forest, is a wonderful place to go for a gentle stroll or cycle, as well as enjoy a barbeque or picnic.

If your little ones are fascinated by animals, Banham Zoo, which is set in 35 acres of landscaped gardens, has some 2,000 birds, reptiles, fish, bugs and mammals. There's also Pensthorpe Natural Park - 700 acres of conservation areas, where British wildlife is in abundance.

Explore stunning stately homes

History-buffs will be happy to know there are plenty of stately homes in Norfolk. Sandringham is one of the most beautiful – its gardens alone are worth the visit. It may be the Queen's private estate, but Sandringham feels somewhat informal and friendly. The museum houses a variety of interesting collections, from royal vehicles to old photographs.

Oxburgh Hall is another interesting home – this manor house has its own moat! If you have time, you should also visit Castle Acre, a complete Norman settlement, with a village, castle earthworks and Cluniac priory.

Boat down the Norfolk Broads

More than 200km of the Norfolk Broads (a succession of rivers and lakes) can be navigated by boat, so why not hire one? If you're interested in enjoying a day out on the Broads, head to Horning, Potter Heigham or Wroxham to get yourself a boat. Prefer to stay on dry land? Then we recommend walking or cycling one of the many routes that run alongside them.

See Norwich's medieval past

Norwich has more than 1,500 historic buildings, many of which are situated on the longest medieval street in Europe. You might not get a chance to see them all, but make sure you don't miss the Cathedral – it has the second-tallest spire in the country! The Norman-built Norwich Castle should be visited too, which is now an art gallery and museum.

The city has some fantastic modern buildings as well, with The Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts one of the most striking. All of the permanent collections are free to see.
