Hi all,
Thought the Thames forum seems a bit quiet these days so opted for the MB forum.
So now boatless we've booked a shared hire week (4 Adults) from Potter Heigham (H.Woods).
We have done the Southern Broads 4 years ago (own boat) so have some experience of the Southern area.
Just thought it worth a post for a bit of advance insider info for the Northern Broads area for recommeded overnights.
So seeking tips of stopovers / moorings & middle of no-where overnights.
Boat is new, pretty much self contained, will be well vitalled & stocked so quite happy on a bankside or on anchor in a mere etc for at least one or two nights.
On board end of June 2011.
Any tips / recommends very much appreciated.

Hickling Broad nice if you can get under Potter Heigham Bridge. The Ant and Barton Broad also very pleasant. South Walsham worth an overnighter and a local chinese restaurant do a pick up/drop off service. They have a converted pub - food was good last year. Horning and Wroxham pleasant but busy with limited moorings. If you can get under Wroxham bridge the river to Coltishall is nice and the Sun pub used to be okay (not been there for a long time). Heading south is Stokesby with nice pub and good food. Yarmouth is, well....., Yarmouth.

From memory, best fish and chips in the world at Potter bridge. I doubt you will get under the bridge, but if you do, the broads just up from Potter are wonderful.

Great stretch up river Ant, although can get busy. Great fun watching new hires battle with the sailing boats.

The beauty of the northern rivers is you can moor up anywhere safely, and hire boats do not need shorepower.

Have a great time
