Reedham is a pretty village situated on the north bank of the River Yare, some 12 miles east of Norwich. 34 Flint Cottage is one of the oldest properties in the village and you will find it on the Riverside - you just can’t miss it!
Reedham still has a railway station with trains leaving for the Cathedral City of Norwich and beyond, also for Lowestoft and Acle. Recently a museum was opened at Reedham station, which was featured on ‘Look East’.
There is a small village shop; a very popular Brewery, called ‘Humpty Dumpty’, serving cracking Real Ales from the Heart of the Norfolk Broads. There is Pettitts animal Adventure Park. Reedham can boast 3 pubs, 2 of them serving meals in their Restaurant, and of course when on the Riverside you have a wonderful vista - all for free. Plenty of traffic on the river at the height of the season, the marshes beyond where with a pair of binoculars you may see birds of prey such as barn owls, marsh harriers, kestrels or a peregrine falcon.
Look out for the Chinese water deer, hares, rabbits and of course the cows often walking in a line on top of the dike. You can go for a walk alongside the river to Seven Mile House and come back by train or vice versa.
The Wherryman’s Way, very popular with walkers, runs right through the village and wonderful bike rides can be made. Take Reedham ferry – the last remaining chain ferry – into Suffolk and go to Loddon or the market town of Beccles using country lanes. It’s not far and very do-able. Strumpshaw Fen is another nice place to go if you like birdwatching.
