Friendly People with a Passion for Norfolk
Life in the Slow Lane
Explore the Norfolk Broads and experience a real slow down in pace as you mosey-around at just a few miles per hour.
There's 125 miles of tranquillity waiting to be explored. Begin your exploration from Norwich where you will find a small but diverse fleet of holiday cruisers for all budgets. Bring your dogs along too on any boat for a small additional charge.
Travelling at little more than walking pace, your Freedom boating holiday will give you access to many areas that can only properly experienced by river. Calm waters give way to pretty riverside pubs and villages, giving you the opportunity to moor up and hop off for a wander, a pint or perhaps a spot of lunch.
Why not explore Norwich? It's just a 45 minute cruise right into the centre where this Fine City offers a diverse range of activities from the Norman Castle towering over the streets, to the Cathedral (with the second highest spire in England) to independent shops, the oldest street market in Western Europe and more.

" Personal, friendly service. Freedom to start & end on any day. Well looked after boats with everything you need on board. Definitely recommend Freedom to anybody. "
Richard Newbery - June 2018
" Took their day boat, Jester for a couple of hours to cruise into Norwich. A lovely trip and a great little boat. It even has a heater so autumn cruising can be just as comfortable. Far more relaxing and interesting stretch of water than you get when taking a day boat from the likes of Wroxham. "
Robin Shepherd - Sept 2019
" Been with Freedom for 8 days last May and this May, both times on Sweet Freedom. A great family run yard with a reasonably priced selection of boats with all the basics you need to enjoy a holiday on the broads, which you can hire for any duration and any start day. I will definitely be returning "
Dave Birch - May 2019
" We hired Absolute Freedom for 4 nights starting on 24 September. The boat was excellent and did exactly what it said on the tin! Do not expect to be rushed on arrival as the hand over is very intense - if you have not hired a boat before I would definitely use this yard. All in all we had a great time. Thanks guys. "
Alan Godfrey - September 2019
" Great friendly place and the boats are fantastic compared to what we have hired elsewhere. We booked a boat on the bank holiday and had a fantastic afternoon on the broads. Happy to recommend. "
Douglas Hall - September 2019
" Fantastic company. We hired the Spirit of Freedom from Friday to Monday. Great boat, everyone enjoyed themselves. The staff where fantastic and we where given a great orientation of the boat when we collected it. They even text us the night before we had to return to say dont rush back in the morning which was nice. Will definitely recommend and use again. "
Barry Major - September 2019
" We are just back from a wonderful week on Commanding Freedom. We had an amazing time the boat was beautiful and spacious. Nicky and mark have been brilliant since the day of booking. We can’t wait to come back and would recommend to all our friends and family. Thank you for making our holiday so fab. "
Kim Bowyer - August 2019
" Best boat hire experience we've ever had, having gone from the big companies in Wroxham, Potter Heigham and Stalham, Freedom Cruisers were exceptional. Friendly, welcoming but totally professional, we felt like valued customers right from the start. Can't recommend highly enough. "
Sue McEwan - June 2019
" With my experience of these guys I found them to be very honest, helpful, polite, friendly and had proven they are not all about money but more customer service. Down to earth people with high standards of workmanship, skills and customer satisfaction. "
