Welcome to Barnes Brinkcraft

We are a family run business who have been offering Boating Holidays and Self Catering Holidays on the Norfolk Broads for more than 40 years.

Today we have a modern fleet of more than 80 Broads cruisers ranging from 2 berth right through to 12 berth, and 3 types of modern riverside self catering properties which will suit families and groups of all sizes.

Our knowledgeable booking team can help you choose and book your holiday to ensure that the needs and requirements of all of your party are catered for. If your holiday is for a special occassion, please let us know as we may be able to help with your celebrations.

If you are looking for a really special holiday experience, take a look at our 'Elite Fleet', cruisers which have 'mod cons' not normally associated with boating holidays.  Gorgeous complimentary toiletries, towels included, a welcome pack and a bottle of Fizz will start your holiday off in style.  All of the Elite Fleet have mobile wifi fitted onboard (fee payable).

Our riverside self catering properties on the Norfolk Broads have between 2 & 4 bedrooms and enjoy beautiful views over the River Bure or Daisy Broad and have either gardens or balconies to enjoy al fresco dining. However you choose to explore, our location right in the heart of Wroxham makes for a perfect base for your holiday in 'The Broads National Park'.
