Coldham Hall is situated on the Yare and offers moorings to the many holidaycraft which now frequent the Southern Broadland Rivers during the holiday season. CHSC members have always enjoyed a friendly relationship with the landlord. Indeed it was thanks to the landlord that the club began its activities in 1951.
