Known as the ‘Gateway to the Norfolk Broads’ Horstead is a village with a variety of shops and amenities to the north of historic Norwich. Being close to the Broads and standing on the river Bure, Horstead is home to a plethora of wildlife which inhabit the many undisturbed areas, making it a popular destination for a spot of birdwatching and walking.  Norwich, with its stunning Cathedral, Norman Castle, Museums and shopping facilities, makes for a lovely day out. The stunning and diverse Norfolk coastline is within easy reach by car and offers sandy beaches, rugged clifftops and traditional seaside resorts.


An amazing very spacious property, very clean and fitted with everything you need for a relaxing holiday. Located in a lovely position, close to the Norfolk broads, suitable for large family or a group of friends. The pub opposite was an added bonus with such lovely food.
