The natural environment for rest and relaxation
Wild-Camping, Canoe Trails and Team Development on Alderfen Marshes
Alderfen Marshes, MoCo’s base on the Norfolk Broads, provides the perfect backdrop to unwind, relax and recharge. Get back to nature with wild camping, throw yourself into group challenges in the Green Room and on the marshes, embark on a canoe trail on the Norfolk Broads and enjoy the abundant wildlife. MoCo creates opportunities for individuals, couples, groups or teams to get away from it all.
Alderfen Marshes is a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). Home to an abundance of wildlife including several rare species, the marshes are carefully managed as a wetland conservation area; visitors enjoy close encounters with the local wildlife including water deer, marsh harriers, butterflies, herons, dragon flies and more.
Canadian canoes, available on site to hire, offer the chance to see kingfishers, otters, water voles and shoals of fish enjoying these tidal inland waterways. Situated a short paddle from the River Yare and Surlingham Broad, a quiet backwater on the Norfolk Broads, Alderfen Marshes provides the perfect opportunity for individuals, groups and teams to really get away from it all.
The marshes also offer the natural environment for willow production, harvested as a sustainable, carbon-neutral source of firewood as well as for willow-weaving and creating living willow structures.
