We are picking up the Sapphire boat out of the Stalham boatyard on Sat 18th Aug, we was hoping to get to Ye Olde Saddelry for dinner that night and moore up.

We wanted to get to Salhouse Broad to moore up on the Tuesday so we can fit in a brewery tour (only Tues and Thur I believe)and dinner at the Fir and Feather.

Are these distances coverable in the time we have? what charges are we expected to pay to moore, where are the best places to do so??

Also any advice on things to do and places to eat on the river Ant for the Sunday and Monday?

Im liking the look of all the nature reserves along the river Bure towards Wroxham, the dog will have a ball im sure!

If you have a week there will be no problem visiting wherever you want (apart from water levels!).

For the first night, Gay's Staithe and Neatishead Statithe are both free moorings - but could well be busy with other craft from the same boatyard (and private and others) so you might be lucky to get in - the earlier the better. If you have a dinghy and the weather permits, anchoring is possible near Gay's Staithe, then row ashore. The walk into the village is about half a mile from Gay's Staithe, a quarter of a mile from Neatishead Staithe.

At Salhouse mooring is £3 for lunchtime, £6 overnight. The walk to the Fur & Feather is about a mile - ten to fifteen minutes depending on how thirsty I am. Alternatively, moor for free at Woodbastwick Staithe (opposite Horning Ferry): a two-mile walk (half an hour at my normal pace).

To help judging these and others I recommend a good map - I suggest the OS Outdoor Leisure #40 The Broads.

Have a good relaxing time and enjoy the brewery trip - I must organise myself on to one some time.
