West Somerton is a small Broadland village tucked into a quiet corner of east Norfolk, super for all bird-watching enthusiasts! It has been featured in the BBC Coast programme and quoted by Nicholas Crane "as my favourite place on the Norfolk Broads". Certainly West Somerton has one of the prettiest staithes. Families will enjoy days out at the many attractions in the area: try Bewilderwood, great adventure for the children, or a day cruising the Broads. The sandy beaches at Winterton and Horsey are only two miles away, with the bustling seaside resort of Great Yarmouth a little further.


Another very happy stay at Leath Barn Cottage - the cottage is well-equipped, clean and spacious; the owners are lovely and very responsive to any needs that arise; and the cottage is only a short drive away from some beautiful beaches and various attractions to keep the whole family engaged and having fun.

Mrs L,

Leath Barn Cottage is very well equipped and homely, sitting in a very rural area but close to a choice of local beaches. It has a very private, pretty garden, and is ideal for families with young children allowing them to play safely.

Mr B,

Really helpful owners who were warm and friendly offered great advice on places to visit. Lovely house, we really enjoyed our stay!

Mrs R,
