Martham is a lovely rural village in the east of the Norfolk Broads.  It is approximately 18 miles from Norwich and 12 miles from Great Yarmouth. It has a spectacular village green and although once a farming community, boatyards now play a key part in its tourist trade.

The village has with several shops including two small supermarkets, a butcher, Chinese take away, florist, pet supplies, bicycle repairs, and hairdresser. There are two public houses and a comprehensive medical centre

The village has several Georgian houses, a large village green, covering three areas of greensward and two duck ponds. Near St Mary's church Church of England, Ferrygate Lane leads to Martham Ferry, where an unusual floating swing bridge crosses the River Thurne. The bridge leads to Heigham Holmes, an island nature reserve, which can only be accessed by the public on special occasions.[6] About 2 km (1.2 mi) to the north of the village is Martham Broad, a 140 acres (57 ha) nature reserve, which is not navigable by boat.
