Hunter’s Yard

Horsefen Rd Ludham NR29 5DG

Hunter's Yard is famous on The Broads, and something of a talisman for the area, a long-running boatyard that now operates as a charity dedicated to preserving and celebrating their fleet of classic wooden Broads yachts and half-decker sailing boats.  Based a short walk from Womack Staithe on the edge of Ludham, it's a labour of love to be sure, and you can visit any time to wander around its wonderful boatshed-cum-workshop-cum-museum, which is full of bits of old boats, ancient tools and scraps of Broads history, and to look at the boats themselves, moored on their peaceful inlet off Womack Water. But it's a commercial concern too, and you can rent one of their boats by the day, week or more, or take a skippered sails to give you a taster. There's no better way to take to the water in The Broads.
