Boating Holidays in Acle
Lying in the heart of the Norfolk Broads, Acle is the ideal start point for a varied and interesting boating holiday. A market town since the 13th century and set on the Bure, perhaps the prettiest of Broadland's rivers, Acle is at the gateway to the marshscapes of Haddiscoe and Halvergate.
To the south, and granting access to the tranquil lower reaches of the River Waveney and the Berney Arms Windmill and pub, lies Breydon Water, haunt of waterfowl and seabirds, with the seaside resort of Great Yarmouth at its northern end.
Passing Surlingham Marsh Nature Reserve and some of Norfolk's finest riverside pubs, a cruise of about 8 hours brings you to the heart of Norwich city and a mooring right by the magnificent 900 year old cathedral.
To the north is Wroxham, capital of the Norfolk Broads and home to a station on the Bure Valley Steam Railway as well as numerous riverside inns and shops, including the 'world's largest village store'. And on the River Thurne, you'll find Potter Heigham whose picturesque, 13th century low bridge arch leads to the magical and tranquil paradise of Hickling Broad.
