It will give you all the information you need and tells you about the Nar Valley Way, Peddars Way and the Norfolk Coast Path to name a few.

Birdwatching & Wildlife

​The Visit Norfolk website lists all the Norfolk Bird Reserves and tells you about each one and what you might see at certain times of the year.


​The Mid Norfolk Railway is East Anglia's longest heritage railway and runs between Dereham and Wymondham. There are three other light railways as well as the main line.  Again all information is available on the Visit Norfolk website.

​​​The Brecks

We are in the area known as The Brecks which boasts the best overall climate with low rainfall and hot summers! It has one of the most distinctive landscapes in the UK. See the Visit Norfolk website for more information on Thetford Forest and the history of the area.


There are so many churches in this area. Norwich boasts more medieval churches than anywhere in Europe. Our nearest Round tower church is at Lexham. See the website for more information on the two cathedrals in Norwich as well as the churches.


If you're feeling energetic you can try the Norfolk Coastal Cycleway or there is off-road cycling at Thetford Forest.  There are quiet byways to explore in West Norfolk. See the website for further  information.
