Lazy Otter Marina

Lazy Otter Marina is a 6-8 hour journey by river to St. Ives, home to some of the biggest markets in the country. During the 18th and 19th centuries, St. Ives was a hub of trade and navigation, but as the railway network expanded and roads improved, the use of the River Great Ouse declined.  It is now mostly used for leisure boats, recreation and the drainage of The Fens.

Lazy Otter Marina is approximately a 1.5 hour journey by river to Ely, the Cathedral City, and a 6 hour journey to Cambridge.

The location is ideal for those that want to cruise without the hardship of going through a lock, as it offers many miles of lock free boating.

There are exciting nature walks and angling clubs along the river banks, and the cities and towns of Cambridge, Ely, Newmarket and St. Ives are only a short distance away, offering many exciting opportunities including shopping, golfing, racing, boat trips and so much more.

Food is served all day at The Lazy Otter pub in this appealing riverside setting.  With an extensive menu of fine food, wine, and traditional beers, the pub boasts a generous restaurant, car park and garden with a gated childrens pirate ship play area.  There is plenty of outdoor seating on the grass or on the garden terrace overlooking the river.

Numerous golf clubs can be found nearby; Ely City Golf Club, Milton Park Golf Course, and Royal Worlington & Newmarket Golf Club to name a few.
