Caught the bus from Great Yarmouth only to find the boat trips were not running. Still not a wasted trip as it is beautiful so sat and ate my lunch gazing out over the broads. You can do a little walking but not a lot.

I'm sorry I don't know about any disabled access. They are only a small company and when I visited there were 2-3 staff there. I'm sure they would find a way to get wheelchairs on to the boat.

I'm not sure on what the capacity is (and it doesn't state it on their website either). However, there were 5 of us and plenty of room for more. I would think a dozen adults would easily be ok. They use the boat for weddings... More
