Thetford

Rich in heritage sites, parkland and fascinating local history, Thetford is a great holiday location with plenty of things to do. The ancient market town is a stone’s throw from the majestic Thetford Forest Park and is situated by the Little Ouse River. In recent times it was made famous as filming location for hit BBC series ‘Dad’s Army’.

Intriguingly there are a number of local, themed, walking trails available; such as ‘Heritage’ and ‘Haunted’, that helps you explore the area, from the Gallows Hill fortifications of 40AD, through its tales of the warrior queen Boudicca to the middle ages and the religious conflicts in the courts of King Henry VIII. See the exquisite Thetford Treasure discovered in 1979, believed to have been buried during Roman times.

If you’re in search of peace and relaxation, you won’t have to go far reach the serenity of Thetford Forest Park. Picnic in the largest lowland expanse of pine forest in Britain or choose one of the leisurely nature or wildflower trails. For the thrill seekers amongst you, the High Lodge activity centre offers mountain biking and high rope adventure courses through the tree tops. There is a sculpture trail for the kids with plenty of craft and wildlife workshops and a popular forest cafe when you need a refuel.

Thetford’s Forgotten Garden is an enchanting, walled paradise recently renovated to demonstrate the very best in organic, kitchen gardening, with flourishing local wildlife. Have an ice cream down by the river’s edge and follow Spring Walk to the old bath house, a relic from the town’s days as a 19th Century spa town. There are plenty of cosy pubs and independent restaurants using fresh local produce, with the Iceni Brewery at Mundford making a range of iconic dark stouts and lagers to sample.

Complete your stay and choose holiday cottages in Thetford to discover tranquil and traditional Norfolk.
