The enchanting, picturesque Ormesby Broad, Norfolk plays host to one of the most idyllic and romantic venues you’ll find for a wedding ceremony, civil marriage ceremony or civil partnership. The Boathouse is a contemporary space, designed to nestle seamlessly into its natural surroundings which make for a beautifully scenic backdrop for photographs.
Choose to arrive in the Edwardian style launch 'Gentleman Jim', which makes for a truly unique entrance. The Boathouse can accommodate 120 guests for the ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening reception, in spacious, light and airy rooms which open out onto a beautifully decked terrace where guests can enjoy unspoilt views of The Broad. When the weather is kind, ceremonies can take place outside in the Wedding Arbour making most of this exceptional and evocative setting. The Boathouse offers a variety of different catering options and are happy to create a bespoke menu just for you based on your preferred dishes and favourite menu choices. Our chefs are passionate about food and we are proud to offer a wide choice of modern dishes created with flair and creativity. The Boathouse offers five bedrooms on the first floor and one bedroom on the second floor of the main building which are all individually decorated and styled as boutique boltholes. One room even stretches over two floors and has fabulous views of the water. All have contemporary bathrooms, comfy beds and those extra special touches to make your stay perfect. In the grounds are three fully equipped woodland lodges that are available to hire as well as a further lodge where couples holding their ceremonies at The Boathouse can enjoy their first night of wedded bliss among the beautiful surroundings.
We’re easy to find in the lovely village of Ormesby St. Michael located just off the A149 – Stalham to Great Yarmouth road – approximately 20 miles east of Norwich and 6 miles north of Great Yarmouth.
