The canal

We are lucky enough to have a private canal running through our campsite. Therefore, feel free to bring your own rowing boats or canoes to launch not far away.

Canoe hire

Canoeing and paddle boarding are the perfect way to get close to the wildlife and environment of the canal and the broads, as you can explore parts of this superb waterland that other craft can’t get to quite as easily.

Norfolk is famous for its man-made Broads! A National Park with 125 miles of navigable waterways. In the 12th Century, the extraction of peat was a prosperous industry and provided fuel for both individual families and manors, with a greater proportion being sold. Digging took place throughout the east Norfolk settlements until the 14th century, when finally, nature overcame man’s force. The holes that had been created gradually began to fill with water as the sea levels rose. As flooding was taking place on a regular basis and peat extraction was simply no longer possible. As these man made holes began to fill, the Norfolk Broads came alive!

Check out our superb map of the Broads to help you to get your bearings of theΒ Broads and all they have to offer! Our unique Canal is steeped in magnificent history, have a read of the history behind the Dilham Watermill.
