Ladies and Gents,

Not been on broads for 3 years so after a bit of advice, on what is
or isn't open, any changes we will notice and generally any advice
you may have.

We are a dog family so will be bringing our 2 Newfoundlands with
us as weick up our boat from Horizon Craft at Acle.

Our plans are as follows: leave Acle Saturday for Stracey Arms for
break, before making way back to Ferry Inn at Stokesby

Sunday make our way to Lion at Thurne Dyke for lunch before
going to Womack Water and Ludhsm for evening

Monday early under Potter Heigham bridge and stop for break,
before relaxing run and stop offs if possible before making Pleasure
Boat Inn at Hickling for evening.

Tuesday through Potter Heigham again before making Ramworth
for late lunch. To Horning. Used to love New Inn, hope it still as
good! As we stay in Horning for night.

Wednesday to Wroxham at lunch before making Coltishall for
evening

Thursday to Salhouse Broad during day, before our second stop st
our favourite location, Horning ( probably back at New Inn for meal)

Friday, no idea for lunch but want to make Acle for evening for final
nights meal at Bridge

So any advice, tips, comments about our planned itinerary would be
greatly appreciated

Kind regards

Warren, Julie, Michael, Cally, shadow and Cooper!

P.s. Amazed I remembered my user name and password. LOL



Yours Newfoundly
Warren

Come on ladies and gents, we have been on broads many times
and absolutely love it.

Haven't been for a few years, noted a few places are now shut or
reopened so we are looking for advice.

Can't wIt for our holiday to rekindle our love for a wonderful area.

Please don't let me down, please give us some pearls of wisdom to
help us on our way and for stopping over.



Yours Newfoundly
Warren

I won't comment on your plan as I've never made a plan that works, always end up going where the boats pointing.
The only thing I will say is "mooring" in July will be busy, worth trying to get there mid-afternoon or be prepared to change your plans.

hope it all goes well.

how can such a sleepy paradise create such passion.

Hi Warren

Best advice i can give is don't make plans
they usually go out the window in the first few hours
Just go with the flow of the river

we usually wake each morning and decide where we will go depending on wake up time weather ect
bit of a daily mystery for all on board

"Hi" Tempest,
Not a lot has changed and both the Ferryboat inn and the Malsters at Ranworth are back open and in full swing, you may want to get to Womack early as this fills up very quickly and the same for the new inn you may want to give them a call and book a mooring, you will also find the Swan inn is very good.
Good luck with your holiday.

Kindest Regards Mike

Unles there has been a dramatic change, I think you'll fing the Stracey Armes a non-starter. It's been closed down for a few years now.

Hi Warren

Welcome back.  Smile

As already noted it will be busy in July so mooring in good time is essential.  For the New Inn Horning ring and book a mooring space, then it gives you a bit more time to do things during the day as you know you have your mooring spot.

By the way are you get 2 boats ?  You will need it with 2 Newfies !! My friend has one "Monty" and he's is huge!! Are you sleeping on the roof?

LOL

Is it Pimms O'Clock yet ?

Thanks Prideofpreston.

I dont know if you are into football, but if you are, you have a great manager and hope to see you back up the divisions soon. (From a Bolton Fan!)

What route you taking?
