The property is situated an equal distance between the market towns of North Walsham and Stalham which both have a good range of essential amenities.

Fishing lakes at Dilham Fishery and The Old Stables Fishing Lake at North Walsham are two of many angling opportunities located nearby.
Weavers Way, a long distance footpath, runs from Cromer to Great Yarmouth and passes through the village of Honing.
The local area contains quiet lanes ideal for cycling and nearby are Bacton Woods with 3 marked trails ranging from 2 to 4 kilometres making an excellent place for all types of orienteering, walking, horse riding and cycling.
East Ruston Old vicarage gardens in the neighbouring village is a feast of formal design, and decorative exuberance.
The busy town of North Walsham and the pretty Broads town of Stalham are a 10 minute journey away, slightly further is Wroxham considered the capital of the Norfolk Broads.
Just outside Wroxham is Wroxham Barns a collection of beautifully restored eighteenth Century barns with displays of traditional and contemporary rural crafts, with workshops. Also with a Junior farm and fun fair for the kids
Norwich satisfies even the most sophisticated shopper so whatever your style, taste or pocket you will have great fun discovering the mix this exciting city has to offer..

This is not our first time to Norfolk but it's the best one. The cottage was superb wich caters well for disabled people. Central to all of Norfolk which gives you access to Norwich and Gt Yarmouth and for birdwatching the superb Tichwell site is not too far. There are numerous shopping sites within 15 minutes.
