The broad is now owned by the RSPB and is a very important wetland habitat and is a wonderfully quiet and picturesque place from which to start your trip, or to stop and enjoy bird watching or fishing. The boatyard is only a 40 minute trip from the the open waters of Barton Broad, from here you can carry on down the River Ant passing How Hill nature reserve, with ample mooring it's a lovely place for a picnic.
Then on to Ludham Bridge and beyond to the River Bure where if your having a full day on board you could visit Horning with its lovely riverside properties and pubs, or visit South Walsham Broad or Ranworth Broad, the latter has a riverside pub and a church tower that, for those of you with a head for heights you can climb to the top of the tower.
If your plan is for a shorter trip then you can head up the River Ant to the quieter waters of Wayford and Dilham, passing the famous Hunset Mill, or call in at the Museum of the Broads at Stalham.
Canoes £30 for 3 hours
Kayaks also available £30.00 for 3 hrs or £45.00 for 6 hours
