Situated in the heart of the Norfolk Broads and within 30 minutes of the quiet north Norfolk coast, provides easy access to some of the great country houses of East Anglia, such as Sandringham, the Queen's private residence, Felbrigg Hall, Holkham Hall and Blickling.
The more energetic may wish to tackle the coastal walk, which follows the seashore or, in season, sail the local waters.
Coltishall is just 1 1/2 miles away in a busy riverside village. It is sometimes referred to as the "Gateway to the Broads" as it marks the start of the navigable portion of the River Bure. The staithe is someway out of the village itself and it captivates visitors with its picturesque setting, riverside pubs, a grassy field and is overlooked by fine properties. The thatched village church of St John is within walking distance of the staithe. The residential part of the village is nearly a mile further along the road, with plenty of old buildings housing shops and buisnesses. The Bure Valley Railway has a station in Coltishall, but this is a long walk from the staithe!
