Achieve a state of calm with a peaceful boat trip through the last wilderness in southern Britain
An expedition on the fastest Norfolk “mussel flat” boat ever built by fishermen of yore does not, I have to admit, sound particularly restful. But a meditative journey is what’s promised, and the sight of Saffron’s clean wooden lines and simple interior is immediately soothing.
This boat was once propelled along the creeks by one fisherman and a single oar, laden with two tonnes of mussels when returning home. Now she’s been lovingly restored for our skipper, Zoe Dunford, to lug stressed-out tourists for a “wellness sail”.
