April 2021 Newsletter

With the odd exception, there are now no family sized boats available for the summer school holidays. So now seems the right time to relaunch our Cancellations page. Currently, we're receiving one or two cancellations per day, though this will increase as we get closer to the holidays. If you want to keep an eye on what comes back on sale, click the link button below, then bookmark the page


Late August Availability

There's still good availability for the week commencing 27th/28th August for 3, 4 and 7 nights. Some local authorities don't invite their pupils back to school until Monday 6th September. Being as it's such a struggle to book a summer holiday on the Broads, perhaps it's worth checking with your children's school to see when they are due back? Below are some suggested breaks available for that week at the time of writing. Click the boat images for more information

Norfolk Broads Towns and Villages - Wayford Bridge

The River Ant is crossed by a road bridge here. Moorings are available just before the bridge, on your right as you approach from the Barton Broad side. On the far side of the bridge, on the left hand bank are more moorings but an overnight charge is made. The bridge is peculiar in that it sits at a slight angle with the far side actually being higher above water than the Barton Broad side. So as to avoid boats misjudging this and getting stuck under the bridge, a board has been added at the far side to equalise the headroom. So if you can get through from the Barton Broad side, you will be able to return.

Things to do: Banks Boats on the opposite bank offer canoe hire which makes the North Walsham and Dilham Canal accessible to you. This canal forks off to the right once you pass under Wayford Bridge. Powered craft are unable to cruise the canal so you are paddling down an unspoilt, quiet waterway with the opportunity to perhaps see Kingfishers and all manner of waterfowl as well as native insects such as dragonflies and butterflies.

Eating and Drinking: The Wayford Bridge Inn is a large establishment to be found on the banks of the river beyond the bridge. It recently changed hands and is now getting good reviews for its food. It offers a good choice of main meals, daily specials and lite bites. Vera's Coffee Shop is a concession within Wayford Nurseries. Hot and cold food is on offer together with tea, coffee, cakes and scones.

Other Services: Wayford Nurseries and Farm shop is a 5 to 10 minute walk up the road from the Wayford Bridge Hotel. The farm shop sells all manner of provisions.

TIP: If you are visiting the Wayford Bridge Hotel, you can use the pathway under bridge to avoid having to cross the busy road.
