Hello Celia and Richard Wright here,

We are taking over stewarding Barton Turf this year. The site consists of a number of small gentle sloping fields and hedge, it is set next to a nature reserve. There is a hard track, less than 100 yards to the staithe , with a good, well maintained slip into the water. Beside the slip there is ample decking to moor a fleet of boats, so you can still sail without getting your feet wet! The staithe is served by a wide ( 30 to 40 ft ) inlet from the broad. Once on the broad, there is plenty of interesting boating in either direction. This is a local authority sail training establishment. There is a possibility of boat hire and sail training, this should be booked directly with Barton Turf Sailing Centre.
There are shower and toilet blocks (open 6.00pm till 9.00am), your own sanitation is needed at times. There is a washing up area with hot water. The site has no EHU , but freezer  blocks can be frozen on site .

Bookings are for a full week or fortnight, running from Saturday to Saturday only. Full payment by April 1st, payments are non-refundable , according to the terms & conditions of the site .

Barton Turf is an original cargo staithe served by a wide (30-40ft) inlet from the broad. The campsite is on one side of this inlet and a commercial boatyard on the other.

A Broads Licence is required. Which is available from the Information Office in Wroxham or online:
