Saxlingham Thorpe is a peaceful and picturesque village situated a short distance south of Norwich in the Tas Valley. Close by is the Tas valley vineyard at Forncett St Peter and the Smockmill Common Nature Reserve. Located within easy driving distance of The Broads, the coast of either Norfolk or Suffolk, as well as all of the attractions in Norwich itself, Saxlingham Thorpe offers an ideal base from which to explore an often overlooked, yet delightful area of East Anglia.
