Each cottage benefits from a small end of garden mooring of about 19 feet in length. One of the best way to explore the Broads is by boat and the local area has many boatyards offering boat hire by the hour, day or a week or more. You can hire canoes, rowing dinghies, dinghies with outboard engines and larger motorised day boats, all within a short distance from your door.
If you wish to rent a motorised day boat for an extended period of a week or part week, we have negotiated special prices with Boulter Marine in Horning: http://www.boultermarine.co.uk/boat-hire/ (01692 630498), and whilst it does mean a very pleasant 1.25 hour cruise from Horning back to your cottage, the prices are the most competitive available locally and the size of these launches is perfect for mooring at the end of your cottage garden. Equipped with a back canopy which folds down completely to let you soak up the sun, or put up to provide shelter from rain. Please see the photos below for more details. To make a booking, please Contact Boulter Marine Services - Ferry View Estate, Horning tel 01692 630498 and mention Wroxham Cottages to receive a special 10% discounted hire rate.
Alternatively, you may prefer to rent a boat by the hour, half day or full day from any of the many boatyards within a short 5 minute walk of your cottage.
Hire a Dory or dinghy complete with an outboard motor, full tank of fuel and insurance - available from Fish the Broads on 01603 783777 within a short 5 minute walk of your cottage. Dinghies can be moored on the private moorings alongside your cottage for the duration of your stay.
