Local Amenities 

There are plenty of places to explore locally, whether you are looking to spend the day by the river, at the beach, the zoo or to enjoy a local walk with a pub lunch, at Three Rivers, on the River Waveney there is so much to explore and to keep you occupied. 

Situated along the Waveney River, our site is a great place to explore what the river, and Geldeston Village has to offer. We are very fortunate to have not one but two local pubs within walking distance to the campsite - one of these pubs can even be accessed by boat just along the river from the campsite. Down the road a local farm shop can also be found, providing fresh, local produce.

The Geldeston Locks is roughly two thirds of a mile walk from Three Rivers, surrounded by fields which hold farm animals. Alternatively, this pub can easily be reached by boat and there is plenty of space to moor up or take your boats into the beer garden with you. This pub has recently been through a big transition and after it went up for auction it was bought via shares with by local community who are passionate about ensuring this hidden gem continues trading.
