Explore Norfolk

The Norfolk Broads

The Norfolk Broads National Park has a wonderful mixture of open water, woodland, fen and marsh.

Boats of every description can be hired less than five minutes from the hotel in Wroxham and used to explore the waterways and discover the varied birdlife and wildfowl.

There are over 300km of footpaths and bike-hire centers throughout the Norfolk Broads and a wide range of fishing for anglers of all levels.


Norfolk Beaches

Norfolk has 93 miles of coastline laden with unspoilt beaches that are clean, safe and family-friendly.

They are great to enjoy throughout the seasons; all are dog-friendly and on most days have stunning sunsets.

Brancaster is our all-around recommendation however Wells and Hunstanton are best for family days, Cromer is best for surfing and Holkham for walking the dog.


Stunning Golf Courses

Norfolk boasts some of the finest historic Links golf courses in the UK and all are within a short drive from The Norfolk Mead.

Royal West Norfolk, Hunstanton, Royal Norwich, Royal Cromer and Sheringham golf courses are all ranked amongst the best courses in the country and we can't recommend them highly enough to our golfing guests.

Get in touch if you would like us to arrange a tee-time at these or any of the courses in Norfolk.


Historic Norwich

Visiting Norwich provides one of the best medieval experences in Europe and the city is just five miles or twenty minutes drive from The Norfolk Mead.

From the fascinating Norman Castle standing proud over the City to the beautiful Pulls Ferry on the riverside, be sure to visit Cows Tower and Bishops Bridge, the oldest in Norwich.

Two Cathedrals, museums, galleries, Norwich Theatre Royal, the Norwich Playhouse and many more venues provide cultural alternatives to the fantastic shopping, quality restaurants and historic public houses.


Norfolk with Children

Norfolk is a real playground for children. It's packed with adventure to suit all ages and interests.

Find your inner Tarzan at Go Ape in Thetford Forest or try Bewilderwood, the curious treehouse adventure located in Hoveton.

Go crabbing at Sheringham or Cromer, horse-riding at the Mount Pleasant Equestrian Centre or take a journey on the Nursery steam train at Bressingham.

Get in touch for more information or if you want us to make a booking on your behalf.


Stately Homes and Gardens

Norfolk is an area replete with grand houses, stately homes, gardens, churches and fine historical architecture.

The Sandrinham Estate and its beautiful grounds remain one of Norfolk's enduring treasures and are a must for any historians staying at The Norfolk Mead.

Houghton Hall and Felbrigg Hall are both stunning country houses and East Ruston Old Vicarage has one of the most remarkable gardens in county and is a feast of floral design.
