Horsey Staithe,
NR29 4EF


Our trips are friendly and informal so you can relax and enjoy a trip into a landscape largely unchanged since medieval times. Lady Ann can carry up to 12 passengers, is stable, has an open-sided saloon and is perfect for viewing the unique wildlife in all weathers.

The wildlife at Horsey includes rare resident birds such as marsh harriers, cranes, reedlings and bitterns as well as more common residents like swans, ducks, geese and herons. On fine days in June the British swallowtail butterfly can be seen in one of its last remaining habitats. On cooler days the bird life is often more active. On warmer days the boat is frequently escorted by huge hawking dragonflies.

Access to Lady Ann from the car park is via 150 m of solid, well-maintained path. Entry to Lady Ann is possible for one wheelchair user with the assistance of the skipper to help negotiate a 13 cm upstand of wood and to use a ramp inside the boat. We advise anyone with restricted mobility to contact us first please to ensure we can accommodate you. If you have a mobility scooter there is room to park it where the boat departs from.

Horsey Windpump, an imposing, five-storey drainage windpump, is owned and operated by the National Trust, together with all the other facilities at the site apart from the boat trip.
