Tucked away down a country lane in the heart of Broadland and enjoying glorious views across open fields a range of handsome barns has been tastefully converted to create the attractive cluster of cottages we offer here. Some nestle under their traditional Norfolk thatch all are very comfortably appointed and each enjoys its own individual patio.
From the cottages a gentle and tranquil rural landscape dotted with ancient churches wind pumps and nature reserves among a myriad other delights all under vast arching East Anglian skies offers a wealth of opportunity for enjoying walking cycling and bird watching. Nearby How Hill nature reserve with its marsh meadows dykes woodland and open water is well worth exploring and the wider surrounding area supports a host of attractions. Riverside pubs and cafés are plentiful and a number of Broadland centres offer bike hire or canoe hire (possibly the most delightful way to discover the lovely reed lined waterways and their abundant wildlife) and visitors can also hire boats at nearby Potter Heigham (4 miles) or take a pleasure cruise from bustling Wroxham - the capital of the Broads and home to the 'world's largest village store' as well as the train station for the Bure Valley narrow gauge steam railway.
