The Village of Chedgrave lies in the Chet Valley in the south of Norfolk in the Broads National Park and provides a good base to visit the East Norfolk and Suffolk Heritage Coasts, Southern Broadland and the Waveney Valley with the market Towns of Bungay and Beccles. The fine Cathedral city of  Norwich is within easy reach just 10 miles away. The adjoining village of Loddon has a good selection of shops and Public Houses. Alternatively you may enjoy the pleasent River Chet Walk to Hardley Cross , which is part of the longer Wherrymans Way Norwich to Gt Yarmouth footpath or the National Cycle route 1 both of which run past the property. This area is excellent for wildlife with a number of RSPB and other nature reserves nearby well worth a visit. Fishing in season is available from the nearby river 100 yards away.
