This is a local authority sail training establishment and the site consists of a number of small gently sloping fields enclosed by hedges.  There is a school room with a kitchen and shower/toilet block, several workshops and a large fleet of boats. It also includes 13 acres of wetland between the site and the edge of the broad which is a nature reserve with a wide variety of wildlife. There is a hard track (less than 100 yards) down one side of the site along the edge of the staithe to a good well maintained slip into the water. Beside the slip there is ample decking to moor a fleet of boats so you can sail without getting your feet wet. There is a possibility of boat hire and sail training-details on request.

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. At the mouth of the inlet is a small island, once out on the broad there is plenty if interesting boating in either direction.

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