Our Norfolk wedding venue is set on the enchanting Ormesby Broad, The Boathouse offers a magical experience in a tranquil and picturesque setting for your wedding celebration. Your guests can relax on the terrace enjoying the stunning views waiting for you to arrive at the beautiful wedding arbour (by boat if you wish). As you proceed to our beautiful breakfast and celebration rooms, you will be amazed at the mixture of contemporary and classic styles that blend so perfectly together. The Boathouse is a contemporary space, overlooking the water. It is decorated in cool, calming colours which reflect its natural surroundings. It has a touch of ‘New England’ feel about it and has been designed to fit in with the area around it. From the decked area, guests can enjoy unspoilt views of the Broad, admiring the wildlife, reed beds and more. Brides can choose to arrive in the Edwardian style launch ‘Gentleman Jim’ travelling from The Waterside, which makes for a glamorous arrival and a wonderful photo opportunity .When the weather is kind, your wedding ceremony can take place outside in the Wedding Arbour making the most of this truly unique and evocative setting.

A Must for any Wedding
I am a Entertainer and have performed in many venues. This I have to say, is the most gorgeous venue. A very tight run ship of friendly staff. They bend over backwards for you to experience a good time. I've not yet eaten in this venue but will be on the 1st of Feb 2020 when I perform at a wedding. So I will review again then. But as a is absolutely stunning. I will have photos to show too. UPDATE: Well. The wedding happened and the food was 'absolutely delicious'. Everybody loved what was on their plate from starter to dessert...beautiful. Hot plates too. Everything went to plan and the staff were fantastic! If you decide to have a wedding there.. rest assured you are making the right choice! Stunning views with the sun going down. Although my partner and I didn't stay, all the guest of the wedding party said the accomadation was lovely and couldn't of asked for more. It even has a descrete heated smoking hut outside! A must for any wedding!

The Most Magical Day
To all the lovely staff at the Boathouse and the Waterside, Thank you Belinda and everyone for all your hard work on our wedding day back in September. We really did have the most magical day and your venue is absolutely stunning- we couldn't have picked a more beautiful place to have our reception at! We also had a lot of compliments on how lovely the food was and how nice the rooms and lodges were also. Thank you so much again, with love, Danniella and Robert Spicer xxx

Thank you for a lovely day!
Just a little note to say thank you for a lovely day! I myself live locally and have been to The Boathouse for meals on several occasions. My cousin and I who attended Stuart and Emma's wedding would like to say how much we enjoyed the day and most of all the excellent food. Everybody on our table was in agreement that the food was absolutely delicious. Nothing could be faltered in any way. Compliments to the chef! Thank you, Linda Shiers.
