CCTV is now on site, constantly recording. We have had 8 cameras installed around the Marina to make sure your craft is as safe as it could possibly be.
We have trot moorings with pontoon access for dinghies. Craft will float for approximately 3 hours on most tides, longer on higher tides. We now have river mooring sites available from £230 per annum, more coming soon!
Pontoon moorings also available on our tidal river and our Marine Lake for short term overnight use, we unfortunately do not have residential status.
All facilities available, toilets, showers, washrooms, fresh tea/coffee machine on site.
Craft are occasionally offered for sale.
Tidal access to the Bristol Channel by the River Axe and the Brean Down peninsula to  all local ports, Cardiff, Barry, Swansea, Porlock Weir, Watermouth and Ilfracombe.
Low tide walks start here to Weston beach, 5 minutes walk, or Brean Down with Fort, the local hill with historic Church or the Mendip Hills through the adjacent Nature Reserve.

*** ARRIVED JUNE 2021!! ***


We are extremely excited to let you all know that we have received delivery of a BRAND SPANKING NEW Roodberg 15 tonne hydraulic trailer hoist June 2021!
This has been a massive decision as we are sure you can appreciate, especially with being closed for 8 months due to the pandemic, but we feel that Uphill Wharf Marina and Boatyard needs to move forward and invest in the best and be able to accommodate larger craft than currently.
It is suitable for all types of hull, as we have also upgraded the bilge keel beam support to make sure these are accommodated safely and securely, upgraded the pad supports from 2 to 4, gone for the hydraulic extending draw bar arm, longer support arms to accommodate deeper draft and opted for extra width on the overall trailer frame to accommodate wider beamed boats and trailer lifting.
We have increased our boat movement hauling in and out on our slipway, and throughout the yard from 6 tonne capacity to 15 tonne, with a comfortable craft length of 13m; LOA above 13m can be accommodated subject to craft type, please contact us for more information.
We believe that both the Marina and Boatyard at Uphill Wharf is a special place to store your craft, and this along with the CCTV and electric gate installation was only the start of our huge investment in the Marina to make it what we believe it should be going forward.
