Thanks for the speedy reply. As I would have the day boat for the week I was just wondering how far I could get if I wanted (just using potter heigham as an example).will definitely head up to cottishall one day as we couldn't get under wroxham bridge in our hire boat last year.

I agree with comments above - don't try to go too far; take it slowly and enjoy more fully what you can reach easily!

Salhouse is close, but worth delaying over; plenty to enjoy between there and Horning - including Black Horse Broad; then pull into Horning for a nice stroll... Coltishall definitely worth visiting, nice pubs or visit 'A Piece of Cake' in the River Rooms for lunch - quality!

Push on to St Benets Abbey and South Walsham if you really want to go a bit further afield but, really, don't try to go as far as you can...!

We did Horning to the top of Barton Broad in a dayboat, have to admit wish we had stuck closer to Horning. Main issue was how noisy the engine was, and in a small dayboat your sitting within a few feet of it. I found the canoe to be much more enjoyable.
