Its central location allows you to enjoy and explore Norfolk’s amazing coastline and the famous Norfolk Broads National Park and the RSPB nature reserve at Strumpshaw Fen. The Fairhaven Gardens at South Walsham makes for a lovely day out. Why not jump on the Bure Valley railway to enjoy a steam train journey?
