The rural village of Ingworth lies within the conservation area belonging to the National Trust's Blickling Hall Estate. Blickling Hall itself offers a great day out with the breath-taking red brick mansion to explore, not forgetting the magnificent garden, peaceful lake and historic park to get lost in.
Maybe hire a bike or follow a map through the parks way-marked walks discovering lost buildings, stunning views and a wide variety of wildlife that calls the park its home. Within an eight mile radius you can visit the beautiful North Norfolk Coastal towns of Sheringham and Cromer, and the historic city of Norwich.
The famous Broads are also easily accessible by road making this an ideal location to be based in for exploring all of Norfolk. The larger market town of Aylsham is just two miles away and here you will find at every turn charming narrow streets and alleys to explore. There is a varied example of fine architecture dating back over many centuries – it has been noted the Aylsham has one of the largest concentrations of listed buildings in Norfolk.
Today you will find a twice weekly market, an award winning butcher, a great public house serving food and The Bure Valley Railway – taking you directly to the Capital of the Broads at Wroxham. The return journey covers 18 miles and well worth the ride giving you the chance to view some of the stunning Bure Valley Countryside.
