Norfolk broads are great, wildlife including swans. Brilliant. Lots of walks there, but not so much for me as I've got knee probs.

We enjoy the Norfolk Broads so much we decided to have a week on a boat from Ferry Marina boat hire. We have hired boats from this company a few times but not this particular boat....Whisper Emblem. As always the Scenery on the Rivers is beautiful and it is worth going at different times of the year to see the seasonal changes. This time we did not cross over from Yarmouth as the tides were not convenient times. It is worth checking the tide tables and daylight hours if you plan to spend time crossing Brendon Water to visit places like Reedham and Saint Olaves. We were quite lucky with the weather only one day that rain made life difficult but plenty of places to spend a peaceful day moored up. Boats with inside steering are useful here because a little rain won’t stop you! We had no difficulty finding mooring each day. Some more popular mooring spots get filled quickly especially those with electric hook up and with nearby pubs. Ranworth Broad is one of these and we have found that an overnight stay on these free moorings, with electric hook up and the Maltsters pub close by, are full very early in the day. We aim to be there by 1:30pm!! There is an element of ‘fun’ watching other boats trying to get in when the spaces left are small. This time we spent one night moored on the Thurne Dyke. Not free and no electric but the short walk to the Lion and the lovely meal we had there makes it worth while. If on a hire boat it is possible to moor at Potter Heigham (Herbert Woods) or in Wroxham (at Faircraft Loynes) but changeover days are best avoided in these boat yards. The moorings at Stokesby are close to the Ferry Inn and if you go further The windmill and animals at Stracey is worth a visit. Both have overnight moorings (charged). These are the last moorings before Great Yarmouth Yacht Station and timing is important here as the bridge is low and tides are strong which makes mooring difficult at times. This boat needs electric hook up...it is a friendly eco boat. The Broads Authorities need to make more electric hook Ups available on their moorings if they want to move into ‘cleaner quieter’ boats. Potter Heigham is worth a visit, very pretty but again busy moorings. Sadly Covid seems to have affected evening availability of food but daytime is fine and the shop will provide everything you could need. The bridge here is tiny and most hire boats can’t get under it. Plenty of takeaway food available and a couple of eat in places were open lunchtime. Ackle Bridge also has moorings.. some free some charged. Local pub here as well. Overall the week was a lovely break and a chance of normality in these unusual times. Other boaters are friendly and it’s nice to chat to others about their experiences. If you are new to this kind of holiday you will find help and advice freely available from more experienced holidaymakers. Remember life is casual, shorts and tee shirts, trousers and trainers and of course jumpers and waterproofs are what you need...no good taking high heels or fancy dresses😂 Don’t forget your camera, binoculars and sketch pad.

I am not sure what I was expecting by visiting the Norfolk Broads for a boating holiday. We picked our boat up from Wroxham and having planned out trip it was changed due to the river being too high to get under bridges etc, understandable and we were prepared for that. We did hire the boat for 11 days which was too long for us. We did cut our visit short as the river 'driving' was very busy, not exactly sure what the rules of the river are apart from staying on the right. The Norfolk Broads in general are beautiful. Lots of little villages with thatched roofed houses and very friendly pubs. Lots of tributaries to explore, bird life to see and a haven for fishermen. We had a lovely time we just weren't expecting the amount of traffic on the river which spoilt it for us.

The Broads National Park is great for walks, picnics and boat trips! The scenery is stunning and I found it to be really peaceful. I'd definitely recommend visiting.

A week aboard Tower Bridge from Bridgecraft at Acle, it was fantastic. The friendliest boat company you could ever wish for. Very Covid safe, each boat has antiviral fogging before you get it so you know the boat is safe. Well equipped boats and a wide range of different boats to suit your needs. We love Tower because we like the roof down cruising. We saw 3 otters this year, which is great and a good sign that the population is doing well, although the number of cormorants is worrying and I think they need managing. Had some lovely meals at some great pubs, like the Lion at Thurn and the White Horse at Neatishead. These pubs had great track and trace and were doing table service only well before that became compulsory. The food was also stunning. The Norfolk Broads were busier this year, which I think is because people are not able to go abroad. That said we still had a lovely quiet relaxing time aboard a stunning boat. We will be back.
