Hi everyone!

Tomorrow we will be on the Broads!  Can't wait.  Only thing is that our friends are travelling up from Cambridge to spend the weekend with us too.

We are collecting Tuppence from Stalham and hope to meet them somewhere??? by lunchtime.

They have a camper van and want to stay on it as Tracy gets sick on boats!  Also it's a space issue with 4 adults, 1 child and a dog!!!  

Is there anywhere they can park overnight Saturday and we can moor to spend the evening at a pub?  

Then we want to cruise about and go somewhere else on Sunday and moor & park again for Sunday night!

Hmmm....not sure about how to do this.

Can any of you help and offer a solution?  It's worth a pint if we see you in the pub surely?

Thanks Guys!!

How 'bout Thurne, isn't there a pub next to the mill? And there's South Walsham (if you fancy a walk to the pub), Womack Staithe for Ludham pubs!

That's me all dried out! The sun's out, and it's 4 days til hand in... must press on!

Sounds good, thanks but is is OK to park overnight?  I understand that lots of places don't allow Campers?  We've left 'Dolly' at Sutton before but want to show our friends somewhere different.

Do you reckon we'll have any problems mooring Tuppence in Ranworth?  I really like the place and it would be a good start to the weekend!

How long from Stalham in the boat do you estimate Roya?

Thanks again!

Christina

Local bylaws for the county of Norfolk prohibit ovenight parking or camping on any highway. Broads Authority normally prohibit overnight camping on Staithes in their local rules.

Car Parks, including Pub Car Parks have their own rules, normally a notice will be displayed about charges etc.

There used to be a camp site at Bush House Farm, on church road in Sutton which is only two or three minutes from the river, as far as I know it is still there but you would not be parked right alongside the boat.

Of course if no one finds you then noone will object but such remote places are not usually close to a pub.
Stalham Staithe and the lane that runs alongside it are normally very quiet but not close to a pub. Other wise Gayes Staithe (south west corner of Barton Broad) or Neatishead staithe (past Gayes Staithe along the dyke, at the end of navigation) - the last is a five minute walk to the pub. Both would require you to try and "hide" the camper though.

Hope this gives you some ideas.

Paul

Hi Tuppence

There is a campsite next door to the Dog Inn at Ludham Bridge on the Ant, which would be about 1 1/2hrs from Stalham. I think there is also one in Potter Heigham not far by road but a nice trip by boat. We have our boat moored at Ranworth and can't think of any Campsites near there but will have a look and report back shortly. However would the van be used to sleep in or do you need just to park it overnight?? because at Ranworth you could park and then sleep on the boat and not break the no overnight camping rules. Smile

Kind regards, John.

Thanks John!

I'm afraid my friend doesn't have sea legs or river legs so she wanted to sleep in the van.

I think I'll have to try and talk her into getting some sickness pills as this is all a bit difficult to organise!

Thinking Cap is still on!!! Confused Smile

I don't think the camp site at Ludham Bridge is open to casual visitors. You need to be a member I think.

There is a public camp site at Repps Staithe (Pug Street)on the Thurne. This might be a good place to moor.
