The Broads were originally thought to be an area of natural landscape. However, extensive research took place in the 1960’s which proved that the Norfolk Broads were actually created by man! As a result of flooding following early peat digging, over sixty Broads and six distinct rivers were created. What better way to explore these waterways than by boat.

There are a number of boat hire companies local to Millview Meadow. Take a 9 mile drive to Potter Heigham and visit Pheonix Fleet or Herbert Woods to hire a vessel of your choice.

Situated in one of the quietest stretches of the Norfolk Broads, Martham Ferry Boatyard offers day boats for hire, so you can explore the stunning rivers and lakes that are full of wildlife. The boatyard also offers the option to hire sailing boats, they provide a full demonstration before you take them out on the water – hire for a minimum of 2 hours.

Nestled in between Salhouse Broad and Ranworth Broad, hire a boat from Horning and choose to head upstream or downstream of the River Bure. Visit Norfolk Boat Hire to hire a day boat, alternatively, take out a fishing boat and see what you can catch!
