  Hi there, have just hired our first boat from Acle next Easter (2013) for 7 nights - can anyone suggest a route for the week - just 2 of us, we enjoy wildlife and pubs !

Thanks

  "- just 2 of us, we enjoy wildlife and pubs" you shouldn't be dissapointed then. If your boat will go under Petter Bridge I would head that way and explore the Upper Thurne then head up the Ant to Barton and above.Just go where the flow takes you.

  Pubs with wildlife, Broads Haven at Potter Heigham or the Long Bar at Great Yarmouth.

Jenny Morgan,
A vane, a boat, but not a
bird.

If ignorance is bliss, then
why aren't there more happy
people about?

  On the other hand head up the Yare, couple of excellent reserves up there at Surlingham and Strumpshore plus exceedingly nice pubs at Surligham and Reedham Ferries.

Google Norfolk Wildlife Trust.

  Hi Momick,
If you are early riser you could include a trip to The Southern Broads but you would need to go through Great Yarmouth and under 2 bridges with limited Clearance onto Breydon Water I have attached a snapshot of the tides/low water at Great Yarmouth Yacht Station for the Easter week showing the low water times which are early and late. Also heres a link to help on Crossing Breydon Water. http://www.mynorfolkbroadsboating.co.uk/crossing%20breydon%20water%20to%20yarmouth.html


Kind Regards

  Behave yourself JM! Evil Grin  The kind of wild life you
suggest in your first post is not likely to be the kind
of wildlife that Momick have in mind.
Welcome to the Forum!  Smile  The Pleasureboat at Hickling
is a great suggestion. The Maltsters at Ranworth is
very near to the wildlife centre, also to  the Wildlife
Trust Shop on the Staithe there.
A fun idea if you are not too early in the season, is
to book tickets for Fairhaven Water Gardens but ask for
a pick up from your boat by their launch. We do this
most years, mudweight on South Walsham Broad and go to
the gardens for a lovely walk and cream tea.

Once we were Rondonay, now we
are simply Brilliant!
