If you are looking at hiring a day boat for a full day our day cruisers are the perfect choice, offering a toilet, cooker, fridge, heating and stereo. These craft are a great all weather boat with sliding canopies for the summer months and the cosy seating area in the cooler months.
Option 1 – South Walsham:
Cast off downstream, away from the bridge, and enjoy the views as you pass through Wroxham, Salhouse, Horning, Ranworth and along to South Walsham. South Walsham is a beautiful Broad with picturesque views seemingly a hundred miles from the rest of the world. Take a picnic and spend time enjoying the scenery, or take a 30 minute walk from the Fleet Dyke moorings to The Ship Inn in South Walsham village. It is well worth the walk. You can even take a stroll around St Benet’s Abbey before you head back to the boat yard.
Option 2 – How Hill & Lunch in Horning:
From the boat yard head downstream, away from the bridge, through Wroxham, Salhouse and into Horning for lunch. There are lots of pubs in Horning or you could pack a lunch and enjoy it on board at one of the many Horning moorings. After lunch, continue along the River Bure before travelling up the River Ant under Ludham Bridge to How Hill. Enjoy the beauty of How Hill, one of the most popular walking locations with our customers, there is also an abundance of Broads wildlife to spot at this peaceful location. Once you’ve taken everything in, you can enjoy the views of the Broads as you head back upstream to the boat yard.
Option 3 – How Hill & Walk:
Head downstream from the boat yard, away from the bridge, through Wroxham, Salhouse and Horning and then continue along the River Bure before travelling up the River Ant, under Ludham Bridge and on to How Hill. Take advantage of the best of the Broads with a walk around How Hill and be sure to take a look at Toad Hole Cottage, an eighteenth century marshman’s cottage that used to house a whole family – this will be more of a shock when you see it! You’ll need to have lunch on the way, or on the way back in order to have time for your walk so once you’ve stretched your legs, head back upstream to the boat yard.
Please ensure that you keep an eye on the time to ensure that you turn to make the return journey to Wroxham in plenty of time. One of the true pleasures of the Broads is that the journey is as much fun as the destination, so even if you’re heading somewhere to have a look and head straight back, it will be time very well spent.
However long you choose to spend on your day boat we are sure that you will have a truly fantastic day that will leave you wanting to do it all over again.
