Sutton Staithe Boatyard is a friendly boatyard situated at the end of Sutton Broad in the heart of the Norfolk Broads. We are on the A149 between Stalham and Potter Heigham, next to The Sutton Staithe Hotel.

Sutton Broad is now owned by the RSPB and is a very important wetland habitat. It is 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 strikingly blue Kingfishers as they work the rivers, the 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 beautiful butterflies, the  Swallowtail is a splendid sight , plus stunning dragon and damselflies, including the Norfolk Hawker and the Azure Damselfly. And if you’re lucky, you might even spot an otter, which have made a comeback around Sutton and Barton Broad in recent years.

There is ample free parking alongside the boatyard.

We are proud to say that many of our customers come back to us time after time because they know we offer excellent honest service at reasonable prices.
