Highly recommended

When I first booked our holiday with Herbers woods, I must admit that I was a little sceptical. The yard is quite large, has lots of boats, and always seems to be very busy. Fearing that this would lead to a lower level of service, I didn't quite know what to expect. Well, I must say that the entire experience was a delight. The boat was clearly not new, but it was clean, tidy and well presented. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, friendly and willing. We did have a breakdown during our holiday, but the way in which they handled the situation only reinforced the quality of service that they offered. Our experience with this yard was a surprise - and a pleasant one at that! Highly recommended!

Hired ' Flickering Light' Aug 06

Great staff, great boat. Very helpful and full of local knowledge. Very busy on handover days high season as they have 80+ boats turning around but this did not effect service. If you can phone boatyard a couple of days before arrival and let them know that you can be there early!! So happy with our holiday we are returning Aug this year and having the same boat!

Hire of 'Broadland Light' August 2006

I felt that the general condition of the boat, although adequate, should have been better considering the price charged. However, every member of staff that I had dealings with, were very helpful and friendly. eg. I had booked a dinghy along with the cruiser, but soon realised that, as I am a bit of a novice with boats, it probably wouldn't be a good idea to keep it for the duration of the holiday. Although I didn't expect it, the friendly young lady in the office reimbursed me for the full cost of the dinghy hire. The yard staff provided a pump out service for us on the Saturday (very busy turnaround day) just as they were finishing for the day. They did this with a smile and a joke even though it states in the skippers handbook that this service is not provided on turnaround days. I would hire from Herbert Woods in the future, but would be more selective in the choice of boat.

Mooring Description :
Moorings. Ideal for Potter Heigham. Plenty of moorings, but as other boatyards, pretty tight on turnaround days.

A good yard to stop in. Have not used their boats although my sister has. What I will say though is best pump out we ever had was from here.

Mooring Description :
Lots of moorings in boat yard during summer season but not much out of season as all their boats are in.
