FERRY MARINA, HORNING
The moorings are situated in one of the most desirable marinas on the Norfolk Broads. The sheltered private mooring basin within the main marina provides a safe and secure location for your pride and joy.
The moorings have direct access to the River Bure and to the wider Norfolk Broads network.
For visitors renting our waterside properties there is now ample space to moor a day boat. Day boats are available from a number of boatyards in the village. We recommend:
Ferry Marina - One of the best hire fleets on the Broads, their fleet is always exceptionally turned out and they have a range of boats to suit most budgets and requirements.
All the day cruisers in their fleet have a galley, WC and cabin. Many of the boats have been built on-site by the craftsmen at their boatyard
Our moorings surround the house and have space for a small day boat exclusively for our guests using Waterside Lodge.
Our 3 moorings are both "side on" and have access to water and electricity
32.0ft x 12.5ft - (Currently Unavailable)
37.0ft x 13.0ft - (Currently Unavailable)

Fishing is permitted in season from these moorings and from the rear decking of the property for our guests.

Also located on Lower Street is JB Boats, a family owned boatyard who operate a fleet of well maintained and well equipped day boats.
The main Marina has a service station located on the main river which can provide diesel, pump out and Calor gas.
The beautiful village of Horning has numerous local facilities including 3 pubs, a post office, butcher, delicatessen, several restaurants and other local services.
Further afield and about 10 minutes drive by car is Wroxham where there is a well stocked supermarket, department store and chandlery.
The River Bure - Horning
Turning out of the marina, you have a choice of direction - go through the village of Horning by boat and you will see many traditional riverside properties with fantastic gardens. Beyond the village is Blackhorse Broad, a tranquil broad full of wildlife.
Go the other way and you have miles of open rivers and scenery to take in. Why not take a day boat down to Ranworth Broad and stop at the Malsters Inn for a bit of lunch or further down river explore St Benet's Abbey.
This Abbey was a medieval monastery of the Order of Saint Benedict, also known as St Benet's at Holme or Hulme. At the period of the Dissolution of the Monasteries the abbey's possessions were in effect seized by the crown and assigned to the diocese of Norwich. Though the monastery was supposed to continue as a community, within a few years at least the monks had dispersed. Today there remain only ruins.
LUDHAM QUAY, HORNING
Although not available as a permanent mooring, Ludham Quay has its own private mooring dock right outside the back door.
Surrounded by a private and sheltered patio, the dock is suitable for craft upto 8.5ft in beam and 23ft in length.
For visitors renting our larger waterside property there is ample space to moor a day boat or launch canoes / store fishing gear or even sailing dinghies or just enjoy the view.
Should you wish to bring your own boat, please contact us in advance and we can recommned launching sites, and give further details on licencing, tolls and other useful information.
