It's difficult to slow down to the pace of the broads but stopping here will help. In addition to the Broad itself there's an excellent cafe, a walk to the church to climb the tower and a boardwalk through a nature reserve. Give it a...More

Eight of us sailed from Wroxham to Ranworth today. Beautiful scenery and lots of wildlife to see. Recommend you take your binoculars. Go and eat at the Maltsters the pub right on the river. Super food and great value for money.

A nice place a we liked the free moorings. Lots of places charge silly money which you’d baulk at if you were parking your car. Picturesque and worthy of a look. Looks like a nice coffee shop in the church which is only a short...More

It's a very pleasant, if a little short, walk through swampland to the Broad. There is boardwalk almost all of the way with the remaining route along a road from the car park. It's not at all challenging and excellent for small kids or those...More

A favourite place for some of our family, with the boardwalk to the Visitor Centre. The Centre itself is well worth a visit with viewing areas from the gallery, where one can look out across the water. A grey heron seemed oblivious to our presence,...More

It's worth doing the pleasant stroll to the nature centre along groundevel boardwalk set on 15 foot high foundations to prevent them from sinking into the bog. There's a shop and cafe on the water's edge and water and shore power for boaters.

No you can not hire boats at Ranworth. Nearest spot would be Oulton Broad or Acle bridge. Whispering Reed boats on Hickling Broad would be a good place to hire a sailing boat or Barton Turf Adventure Centre on Barton Broad.
