The village of Catfield is an excellent base for exploring The Broads and the excellent beaches of the North and East coast. The sandy beach at Sea Palling is a mere four miles from the cottage with Cromer, Sheringham and Great Yarmouth are all within any easy drive away. The Broads offer many experiences whether exploring nature reserves, cycling the quiet lanes, taking a stroll, sailing, fishing or birdwatching. The nearby town of Stalham is just two miles, offering a supermarket and a range of small shops, and is home to the Museum of The Broads. Catfield has a village shop and a pub, as does neighbouring Ludham. Standing proud on the banks of the River Ant, How Hill is just a stones’ throw away. It is a lovely spot where you can explore the house, gardens, enjoy afternoon tea in the coffee shop, walk along the nature reserve and, during the summer months, board a traditional Wherry.


It was wonderful. Well presented, well stocked, good contact from the house keeper, useful information provided about the house and the local area. A lovely relaxing place to stay, with plenty of brilliant places to visit nearby. The children loved the swing in the garden. Thank you very much for our happy holiday. x

Mrs Emily H,

Lovely cottage, very comfortable and cosy. Beds are good and the kitchen is very well equipped.
