This is the best kept secret on the Broads. Anne and the team were really welcoming and helpful, our boat, "Lutra", was outstandingly maintained and it was excellent value for money. All in all, the best Broads sailing experience you could have!

I think we've had six holidays with Eastwood Whelpton, and I can't recommend them highly enough. We've not used them yet with the new ownership, but we will be doing so. The boats are always beautifully cared for, and immaculately clean. We've sailed on Tempest,...More

Fantastic experience, couldn't meet a friendlier bunch. The instructor, Jimmy, was brilliant. A true passion for sailing on the broads and a font of knowledge about the waterways and local history. Brilliant with the kids too.
