Considering the mileage we do in a week, with two weeks you have time to see pretty much most things. Just depends upon how much cruising you want to do each day. You should have a reasonable chance at most bridges as well with that style boat.

You want to stop the night in Yarmouth????

Each to their own, but not my favourite place particularly on a romantic cruise, handy for supermarkets I suppose.

Thanks HarryDaTiger - that's exactly the sort of info I need - places to avoid as well as "must sees".

Will probably need some shopping  whenwe get near Gt Yarmouth, so it sounds like try to hit there about midday after a night on Braydon Water? Do some shopping (proper food preferred rather than s/markets) then off up River Bure to find mooring for the night?

Might sound a bit obsessive planning so far ahead, but SWMBO always wants to know where, when, how, who etc. - she'll slow down once we get started Smile

Breydon is NOT a place to spend a night unless you have strayed out of the channel at high water and you are stuck!!!!

Breydon is more like an estuary rather than a Broad and moorings places close by are few and far between. Berney Arms is one and Burgh St. Peter another - both have a tidal rise and fall of 2' or more. Reedham is probably your next best bet and then St. Olaves.

If you really must go to Yarmouth stop at Acle, walk into the village and catch the bus - now every 15 mins. But give her a real treat and catch the bus the other way to Norwich. A really good centre and probably about 5000% better than Yarmouth - sorry people who like Yarmouth!!!!!

I hardly ever go to Yarmouth - except to get the car serviced, and I live here!!!!

Thanks Marshman - again, just the sort of real information I need. I was thinking of calling in at Norwich by car on the way to picking up the boat, to do some last minute food shopping anyway. I don't really like supermarkets, but understand that Norwich has a good outdoor market every weekday, so may shop there for fresh stuff.

Acle has a very good market on Thursday mornings.

A small but important tip ,
if you like a fried brekkie buy a cheap non stick fry pan and throw it away at the end of the trip.

also bring your own loo rolls.and matches.

My personal choice would be to stop at Berney Arms before crossing Breydon. I love the place as it is so bleak and beautiful. We will be there in July without fail and it is likely to be our honeymoon!!!
Only question is, will the pub still be open that late in September (you are expected to frequent the pub if you moor)??

Not sure about fresh food shops in Yarmouth. There is a huge Asda 5 mins walk away from the yacht station, Aldi even closer, so at least some fresh produce is available. However, I believe even a short stay at the GY yacht station will cost a few quid if still manned at that time.

Thanks for that, Roya - I'm making a note of all the tips tricks and recommendations. There won't be time to get to Acle on the first Thursday - we pick up the boat on Tuesday! But it should fit in for the way back.

Yes, I love a fried brekkie - and have experienced those cheap fully sticky dented aluminium frying pans usually provided! I'll be bringing along the sort of cooking gear I don't think will be provided - frying pan, wok, grill and griddle, and some decent "tools". I have a sort of "essentials" pack whenever I'm away - kitchen utensils and essential herbs/spices/sauces etc. Always pack a big pack of bog rolls, and have matches and lighters too. I'm a bit of a "belt and braces" man when it comes to cooking Smile

Thanks again

I was going to suggest something entirely different with a first night on a mud weight on Surlingham Broad or indeed moor at Bramerton Woods End and take an evening stroll round the nature reserve.  The Following morning carry on upstream to the new moorings at Whittlingham County Park a good café by all accounts and a waterbus stop into the heart of Norwich (City Boats).  In the afternoon make your way back to Loddon for shopping and a nice evening meal.  It’s very easy to go past everything but not really see anything.  Beccles for example is worth a half day with an onward passage to Geldeston.
