Sutton Staithe Map

Sutton Staithe lies at the end of a branch off from the River Ant. As you leave Barton Broad, heading away from Ludham Bridge, you will see sign-posts directing you to Stalham and Sutton. The Sutton turn branches off to the right. You will cruise over Sutton Broad before reaching the moorings at the staithe, located at the far end of the Broad. There is room for around 20 to 24 boats depending on their size. Most are situated in a narrow dyke which leads up to the Sutton Staithe Hotel green. The moorings on the green are preferred as they are more open and water hoses are to hand. However, Sutton staithe is very popular and you should make your arrival around mid morning or mid afternoon to have the best chance of getting moored, espcially on Friday afternoons when a great number of Richardsons craft will overnight ready to return their boats the next morning. (Richardsons at Stalham is only a 30 to 40 minutes cruise from here) There is ample room to turn your boat at the far end of the "green" moorings, just in front of Sutton Staithe boatyard.

Eating and Drinking: The Sutton Staithe Hotel is the only establishment within reasonable walking distance of the moorings

Local Attractions: This is a delightful location, either nestled under the trees in the narrow dyke or in the open space of the green moorings. You will see many boats come and go as the moorings are popular so just sit back and watch the world go by. Sutton Pottery and Mill is a 20 minute walk away. Here you can purchase local made pottery and view the workshops. Open Monday to Friday 9am to 6pm with an hour break for lunch. The small town of Stalham, with its Tesco supermarket, pubs, restaurants and many small shops, is a 20 to 30 minute walk away.

Other Services: The village centre with a post office and garden centre is around 20 minutes walk away.

TIP. The hotel is a popular stop off point for Norfolk Broads boat hirers wanting to eat in their restaurant. We recommend you book a table and to be at your moorings by early afternoon.
