Sutton Staithe Boatyard is a small friendly boatyard situated at the end of Sutton Broad in the heart of the Norfolk Broads. We’re on the A149 between Stalham and Potter Heigham, within easy reach of Hickling, Catfield, Barton, Irstead, Ranworth, Ludham, and Horning.
Sutton Broad is now owned by the RSPB and is a very important wetland habitat. It’s a wonderfully quiet place from which to start your trip, or to stop and do a spot of birdwatching or fishing.
Combine great boating with stunning scenery and unforgettable sights and sounds such as the iridescent blue of kingfishers as they work the rivers, the still relatively rare marsh and hen harriers soaring across the wide East Anglian skies, booming bitterns, herons, (or ‘harnsers’ as they’re known locally) and even cranes.
The area also plays host to butterflies such as the beautiful Swallowtail, plus stunning dragonflies and damselflies, including the Norfolk Hawker and the Azure Damselfly. And if you’re lucky, you might even spot one or two of the otters which have made a comeback around Sutton and Barton Broads in recent years.
There is ample free parking alongside the boatyard, and we’re also just a few yards away from The Sutton Staithe hotel. We’re delighted to say that many of our clients are return visitors who come back to us time after time because they know we offer excellent service at reasonable prices
