If you don’t know this part of Norfolk you are in for a treat! The Broads National Park are practically on the doorstep and one of the largest of the Broads is Hickling Broad, a haven for wildlife and looked after by the Norfolk Wildlife Trust, who do tours in the summer months, it is easy to spend time away from the world along the marked trails and let the day drift away, don’t forget a picnic. The fabulous east coast beaches are also nearby and often underpopulated even in the summer months, family friendly with soft sands the beach at Sea Palling, just 5 miles away, has been given the prestigious Blue Flag safe beach award this year. Iconic coastal landmarks such as Horsey Windpump and Happisburgh Lighthouse with its candy red and white stripes should not be missed and the resident seal colony at Horsey Gap is about as close to nature as you can get; if you are here in the winter months the new pups can be seen too. A series of Quiet Lanes, that have been designated as rural roads for less traffic, abound in the area, which is great for walkers and cyclists alike and the cultural city of Norwich is worthy of a day’s outing to take in the culture, a bit of retail therapy and so much more.


A lovely clean, cosy and comfortable cottage in a great little village with an excellent garden and super garden furniture. A wood burner in the living room for those cold evenings is a great bonus too. There is a pub at the end of the road and the short walk to Hickling Broad is a bonus. We had a brilliant weather and a brilliant time. Thank you!
