  • "The idea of a houseboat is good but on moving in we found the doors would not shut properly a window would not lock."

    and a bust pipe in the early hours of Wednesday morning was not fixed by the Friday we moved out. the whole house boat including all utilities inside and out side need a good update, because for the money it cost me i am very very disappointed and for the money i paid would never recommend this holiday accommodation to my worst enemy, and some sort of compensation would not go a miss i .could say more but feel i am wasting my time. Some one has to visit this site.

There is a small market which comes to the town on Tuesdays and a farmers’ market on every other Saturday, as well as regular sales in the town hall. Stalham is one of the major starting points of Norfolk Broads boating holidays and a museum to give you an insight in to the Broadland environment is a must. Just a few miles inland from fantastic beaches, this is a perfect base for exploring the Norfolk Broads and coastline.
