Herbert Woods Picnic Boats

Take a day and explore the Norfolk Broads at your leisure, aboard one of our picnic boats.

All of our picnic boats seat a maximum of 9 people and include a single gas hob only suitable for making teas and coffees for your day out. The single gas hob is not suitable for cooking on board. Also there is a small fridge, sink and toilet.

Unfortunately at this time and until further notice we cannot offer the following items onboard: mugs, glasses, plates, cutlery.

However, a kettle and cleaning materials are provided. Sorry for any inconvenience caused. 

Prior to departing, you will be provided with a tutorial and safety briefing by one of our staff, life jackets for all passengers, a full tank of fuel and a map of the Norfolk Broads.

Herbert Woods reserves the right to charge a £200 damage deposit in addition to the hire charge, this will be refunded on your return, provided that the boat is left in clean condition and without damage or loss of any equipment. 

Please Note.

There must be at least two adults on board the boat at all times. We do not provide pans or frying pans on any of our picnic boats. Whilst every effort is made, we cannot guarantee any of our Picnic boats will pass under Potter Heigham bridge at any time of the year due to tide and weather conditions. Under our discretion, on the day they may be passable.

Due to a number of contributory factors we are unable to currently offer Day/Picnic boats access through Potter Heigham Bridge, this is at the discretion of Herbert Woods management and is actively being reviewed on a regular basis.
