St Benets offers access to the best of three worlds from one spot, the fantastic sandy east coast beaches, The Broads National Park and tranquil rural countryside all of which are within easy reach from this delightful thatched cottage on the outskirts of Ludham. With several boat hire companies on the "doorstep" there is an excellent opportunity to hire a day boat for exploring the Broads and rivers. Sea Palling beach has regularly been awarded the prestigious Blue Flag award and offers plenty of activities such as windsurfing, canoeing/kayaking and jet-ski-ing safe bays for swimming. Along the coast Horsey is well worth a visit and whilst there visit Horsey Beach to see the local seal colony. The house itself is a luxurious mix of old, beamed rooms and an inglenook fireplace and new, with a modern well equipped kitchen, bathrooms and bedrooms. Together with lovely gardens and delightful countryside views, St Benets is a great base for a memorable holiday. Shop/Pub: 1 mile

There are excellent walks from Ludham along both the rivers Ant and Thurne and at nearby Hunters Yard, boating enthusiasts can hire an authentic 1930's sailing yacht, whilst How Hill and the National Nature Reserve of Ludham & Potter Heigham Marshes all have lovely riverside walks.

The cottage was warm and comfortable. We stayed over the Christmas period and we had plenty of space for our family. Beautiful views and walks from the cottage and enjoyed the walk into the village. We would love to stay here again sometime maybe in the sMr David Morris - 30th December 2016
