Set in unspoilt and gently undulating countryside, dotted with farms and woodland, this part of south Norfolk has much to offer the visitor.  With walks from the Hall itself it is easy to escape everyday life for a while and immerse yourself in nature’s back yard and when you want to go further and explore, The Broads National Park and fantastic sandy east coast beaches are just a short drive away.  For a more novel route to The Broads, take the Reedham Chain Ferry across the River Yare ; explore the waterways on foot or take to a kayak or canoe, bird watch on the way and don’t forget the picnic!  This is great cycling country too, being such a flat landscape under Norfolk’s wide blue skies, there is a special calmness to this area that is unbeatable.  The beaches on the east coast are not to be missed, sandy and long, they are great family playgrounds that are often underpopulated, even in the summer.  For those who enjoy arts and culture with a bit of retail therapy thrown in, Norwich is a beautiful city to discover just 12 miles away and history buffs will enjoy a visit to Norwich Castle whilst here.  Being a foodie county with a growing reputation there are some great pubs, restaurants, cafés and farm shops to find and if you want to just stay put you can even have vintage tea delivered to your door! There is something for everyone here in this lesser-known part of the county and it’s just waiting to be discovered.
