We booked through Bure Valley Railway which was excellent by the way! It's about a 10 minute walk from the station to the river. I think our skipper was called Ollie? He provided excellent commentary plus pointing out various animals along the way which my daughter loved ticking off her check sheet which the boat provided. There's a bar on... More

They provided buoyancy aids and gave us instruction on use of both the boat and the waterways. Despite a little rain and a cold day we had... More

Hired a boat on Tuesday 18th April, great day on the boat even though the weather wasn't too good. The staff are very friendly and even weren't bothered that we were a bit late back (through no fault of our own!) . Great fun , thanks guys look forward to another visit!

We decided to take a 1.5hr trip as an introduction to the broads and weren't disappointed. The boat was spotless and staff friendly. There was an onboard commentary about the broads and the local wildlife/ birds which was very informative. We took the dog with us and she seemed to enjoy it too. There was plenty of room onboard with... More

Rented a cordon rouge cottage which included half a day boat hire. Cottage was simple, well finished and presented. Warm, cosy and well equipped in a lovely setting. Staff could not be more helpful and friendly.

We hired a 8 seater day boat for 2 hours, kids loved it could have a go at driving in quieter areas, lots to see when go past and lots of wildlife! £36 for 2 hours makes a fairly reasonable day out. My horrors are 9 and 11 would definitely do again
