June 2014 Newsletter

The summer season is well and truly upon us with the added benefit of wall to wall sunshine and temperatures in the mid 20’s an added bonus.

We are working hard on our new boat for this year ‘Rhapsody‘ and it is
still on time to be finished for bookings in the school holiday.  Several
people have asked for photographs and as soon as we have some
available we will put them on our website and Facebook pages.  More
on this in the next newsletter.

Did you see in the Guardian newspaper recently, that the Broadland district in Norfolk was named as ‘Britains most beautiful place’?  Not surprised? No, nor were those of us who live here and I’m sure that those of you who choose to holiday on the Norfolk Broads are not surprised either!

Photographic Cruise

Do you wish you could take a better photograph and wonder how the
experts always seem to get the light and mood of a picture just right?

In early October we are are thinking of putting together a short break
boating holiday which would include daily tuition from local
photographer Paul Studd.  This will either be a three or four day mid
week break, not too structured but with pre arranged meeting points
to meet with Paul and your fellow boaters and learn how to take a better picture.

If this is something that might interest you and you would like to know
more about, please email Kerry who will send you more information.

Customer Loyalty Scheme

Don’t forget that if you have previously holidayed with us in the past 4
years, and who rebook with us direct, you will receive a delicious local
food Hamper supplied by Farm to Fork.  This will be delivered direct to
the boatyard prior to your arrival for the start of your holiday.


We have wifi


We have free wifi available in our riverside self catering Apartments & Lodges, and it’s available on the yard too if you are holidaying on a boat.
