November 2021 Newsletter 

Summer School Holidays 2022
The boating season is all but over, and the boatyards are now starting the long winter task of  repairing, refurbishing and preparing their cruisers for next year. Most boats will be out of the water at some stage to be worked on, which is why the season closes at the end of October (in most cases). But next season starts again towards the end of February, and in between, people will still be planning and booking their 2022 summer holidays. If you book it - you have something to look forward to! So the focus of this month's newsletter, is the 2022 Summer School Holidays. There's still a good choice of cruisers to choose from, but that will change come January, when the booking season gets underway. With that in mind, I've highlighted some deals you can get now, though these are but a small selection only. The blue button further down will take you to our holiday search page, to check the dates and durations that suit your circumstances.

Large Party Bookings

This is just a reminder that Richardsons boatyard in Stalham, has retired around 30 of it's large 10 to 12 berth cruisers for 2022. This means there are now very few boats capable of accommodating larger parties. If you have plans to host a group of 8 to 12 people on the Norfolk Broads next year, and you're still to book, now is time to start looking for a boat. Many groups will be disappointed they can't get afloat next year. Please don't let it be yours! You can check out what's still available using the blue button in the previous section.

Book With Confidence

Our booking agents, Hoseasons offer Full Refunds, Transfers or a Credit Note (your choice) if they or the accommodation provider cancel your booking, or if you cancel your booking because UK government public health measures mean that it is unlawful to travel to or make use of the accommodation you booked.

Norfolk Broads Towns and Villages - Stalham

Aerial view of Stalham

After travelling across Barton Broad on the River Ant, the river diverges. One route takes you to the villages of Wayford Bridge and Dilham whereas the other takes you to Stalham and Sutton. The villages are sign posted so you should have no trouble choosing the correct direction to travel. Stalham is a small town to be found at the furthest point of this branch of the river. It is also the home of the largest boatyard on the Norfolk Broads - Richardsons. Richardsons host around 300 of their own cruisers so unless it is a turnaround day, i.e. when holidaymakers leave or take over their boats, there are usually moorings available as many of their own craft will be out cruising. Moorings are also available at Stalham Staithe, adjacent to the Museum of the Broads. You will need to look at our map linked below to get an indication of where these are. Take the left hand channel rather than entering the boatyard to find them. They are more picturesque but are limited and popular. As such it is wise to consider the boatyard moorings as a plan "B". From either of the moorings you have a 10 minute walk to reach the Stalham main street.

Local Attractions: The Museum of the Broads is the stand out attraction here. Depicting life on and around the Broads as it used to be in times gone by, you are able to see how holidaymakers would have fared in Victorian times when the area was starting to open up to boating holidays. Living and working on the Broadland rivers is also displayed with many of the implements used. More information HERE

Eating and Drinking: Swan Inn - Restaurant and bar food. To be found on the main street. The Grebe - Bar food. On the main street. The Harnser - Bar food. Turn right at the main street towards Sutton. The Mermaids Slipper is a restaurant close to the staithe. Hunters Cafe and Restaurant is on the main street.

Other Services: Tesco Supermarket - five minutes walk from the moorings. Newsagents - use Tesco. In Stalham town centre you will find a butchers, fish and chips, Chinese and Indian Takeaways, a doctor's surgery and Boots the Chemist. There are now no banks in Stalham. However, Tesco's has a cash withdrawl machine on-site. Public toilets and waste disposal are available within the Richardson boatyard complex. TIP: If you can get in at the public staithe moorings, these are the nearest to Tesco and the high street.
