See & Do

East Ruston Gardens (6 miles away) are a great attraction for keen gardeners and can also offer very good tea and cake!

The Norfolk Broads are 30 minutes’ drive away – where one can hire a boat and explore the extensive waterways.

Cromer is 20 minutes drive away – the famous pier and the last end-of-pier show in Europe with summer and Christmas spectaculars. Also one can visit the Amazona Zoo.

Happisburgh Lighthouse

Sheringham is 30 minutes’ drive.  Take a ride on the Poppy Line Heritage Railway to Holt and in the summer visit Sheringham Little Theatre and enjoy a matinee or evening performance of classic plays and productions.

National Trust Sheringham Park, Blickling Estate and Felbrigg Hall, Gardens & Estate are all close by and offer a fascinating insight into history. All offer beautiful gardens to explore.

If wildlife appeals, a trip up the coast road to Blakeney would enable visitors to take a boat ride to see the seals at Blakeney Point.  On the way, enjoy delicious food and drinks at The Dun Cow, Salthouse (near Cley), overlooking the marshes.

Should you be in the mood for the buzz of city life, Norwich is only 30 minutes’ drive away and offers excellent shopping in a mix of modern and characterful streets and buildings, with cafes, pubs and restaurants aplenty.  Also, Norwich has its own castle, cathedral and museums, theatre and the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts.

Beautiful location and equipped with everything you could possibly need. Lots to do even though it is in the countryside and would definitely recommend the Cromer End of Pier Show. Loved our stay and will definitely return. Thank you.”
