Description

The Dollery is a 400-year-old, listed barn conversion that has been refurbished to a high standard and is set in a quiet location, where lovely walks and cycle rides in the country lanes are just on the doorstep, as is the pub/restaurant, which is just a short stroll away.  Elegantly furnished with cosy beds and super walk-in showers there is plenty of space to unwind and relax.  The owners are keen golfers and have a golf driving and chipping net for practice in the pretty, shared garden; a full set of clubs are available to rent if required. There is also a private patio that overlooks paddocks, which is the perfect spot for a quiet drink at the end of the day.  With its proximity to Norwich for great shopping, cultural delights and superb restaurants a holiday at The Dollery has the best of both worlds on offer.

Horsham St Faith is a thriving village on the outskirts of Norwich and there are plenty of activities to hand both locally and a little further afield.  The village has a swimming pool, tennis courts and the City of Norwich Aviation Museum is also based here.  Cycling and walking in and around the village will take you out to some pretty countryside and there are numerous golf courses and fishing lakes within a few miles.  Norwich City is easily accessible via a good Park & Ride service if you don't want to take the car and has a host of cultural delights, such as the Cathedral and Castle, as well as fabulous shops, café's, restaurants and cinema complexes.  The Broads are close by and make for lovely days out; explore the waterways either on your own or with the Canoe Man who will take you on a nature trail into some of the more secret locations found here.  Steam buffs will enjoy a ride on the Bure Valley narrow gauge railway, which takes you from Wroxham to the charming, Georgian market town of Aylsham and don't forget to get a blast of sea air on the wide sandy beach at Winterton-on-Sea or go seal-spotting a little further along the coast at Horsey.  There is so much to do in this part of Norfolk, one visit probably isn't going to be enough!

Lovely, relaxing place to stay, cool in the heat! A perfect base for cycling in the Broads area, trips to Norwich and to the beaches. Our favourite was Horsey and swimming with the seals. Thank you to our hosts with the lovely finishing touches, fresh flowers and welcome
