Tumbling Bay is a small mooring site on the upper section of the River Lee Navigation in Hertfordshire. Within a short walk is the lovely town of Ware, which offers a good selection of pubs, restaurants and shops and within an hour's cruise is the historic market town of Hertford which has a number of leisure and cultural attractions.

The off-site mooring site is approximately 270m long and provides space for up to six vessels, four of which have residential planning consent and are located in a secure part of the site.

Additional Information

The four residential moorings each have an electricity supply which is provided through Smart Meters where payment is made via an on-line portal. Boats can also access water on site, as well as refuse and Elsan disposal which is for the sole use of the permanent mooring customers only.

There are a further two leisure berths on the offside beyond Ware Bridge 64. These berths do not have service bollards.

There is no car parking provided. Customers should make their own arrangements.

Access to the site is from Star Street (B1004). Access is via a small industrial estate called Dockyard which is approximately 420m on the right hand side if travelling from Ware High Street. Alternatively, pedestrian access is to head south along the towpath from the High Street bridge then cross the River Lee Navigation at the next bridge (Bridge 64) until you reach the moorings on the off-side.

The access gate requires a bespoke key, available to mooring customers only. Keys can be purchased from the Moorings Manager for a refundable deposit of £50 each. Refunds will be given on return of the key with a valid receipt.
