We are leaving Stalham probably around 5pm on a Saturday in august. Its our first time boating on the Broads.
Where would be a good place to moor up on our first night? (We don’t want to stress ourselves out too much)!
Any advise welcome!
Thanks

Hi there ,
Welcome to the forum , personally if it is going to be that late in the day , I'd stay the  night in the hireboat yard and leave the yard the next morning, most of the moorings will be full as many would of moored up for the day,

steve and vicky
( apparently a moaner)

I agree with Steve most moorings will be taken, spend the night in the marina then have an early start, alternatively you could head for Paddy's Lane and if its full you could mudweight on Barton Broad there are worse places to wake up, depends if you have a four legged friend.. Smile

Regards

John.

Steve and John have got it spot on, if you want to move though head down the Ant you can check out Irstead (only a couple of moorings) How Hill (possibility) Ludham Bridge (possibility) or get to the end of the Ant and take a left to St Bennets you will most likely get a mooring there but no services.
Lots to do in Stalham and get an early start.

Have a great holiday.

Dave

if it is to be it is up to me.

Hi Do you want to go to pub or restaurant or take away? if so stay in yard and go local, if cooking on board just sail down to Barton broad and stop on the way if any moorings are free if none available just mud weight on Barton Broad thats done by dropping the lump of metal thats on the front of the boat into the water just make sure the end is tied to boat and leave plenty of slack in rope and dont go to near the bank or in the middle of road way and when dropping it swing it away from you as you let go other wise it will bite you as it hits the water if just dropped straight down,when retrieving it it may be difficult to pull up, if so pull rope as tight as possible nd tie of then drive boat forward slowly to break it free then retrieve it . enjoy John

Welcome to you,
Another thing you could do is wait for the yard to calm down and then go for a mooch around to Sutton or Wayford turn before the bridge.
Then go back to the yard and moor for the night, you will have the feel of the boat enjoy a river trip with out any pressure as you know there is a mooring waiting for you.
Enjoy your holiday.
Kindest Regards
Marge and Parge
