Nice and quiet, excellent fishing and wildlife. Facilities good staff11/11/2019

  • Liked: 

    Peaceful and just a few minutes walk to the shops bus stop and dog friendly pub. Showers and toilets clean and staff friendly and helpful. Lots of walks and wildlife, not much ambient light at night so good view of the stars (take a torch). Large fishing lake, well stocked with some large carp. Wi Fi good and free, TV reception excellent.

    Disliked: 

    All grass with a couple of hard standings, ground was soft mud everywhere and despite best efforts we got stuck but the staff were well prepared and we were towed out, but we know they cant control the weather, just wish firm road or gravel in place to get around.Working farm so no staff to meet us so we did not know where to get water to fill tanks, we tried to back up to a stand pipe and that's where we got stuck! Turns out there was a better tap that we could have used but no matter.

    The availability of fridges/freezers/microwaves is a great idea.
    Close enough to walk into Hingham where there is a good pub along with a quality butchers and a good bakery.

Local attractions

Once you’ve put down the fishing rod, head to Hingham with the camera to snap some shots of very fashionable houses: Hingham’s popularity with posh Georgians who came here in the 18th-century led to the town being labelled Little London. The eastern side of the market place is said to have the best collection of Georgian houses in Norfolk, perfect for pics and a possible rant about 21st-century property prices (buy a motorhome instead).

From Hingham, it’s about 17 miles east to Norwich, Norfolk’s capital town and filled with a capital amount of attractions such as England’s biggest six-day indoor market, the greatly-sized Gothic fountain at the Plantation Garden and the ‘Norwich 12’, 12 listed buildings in the city including stupendous Norwich Cathedral.

Keep driving your way east to reach the Norfolk Broads: their 125 miles of navigable waterways are where to go in Norfolk for all things boat, whether you want to try a guided river trip to wildlife spot, hire a boat to drift lazily down the water or take out a canoe for placid paddling. The Broads have several good angling lakes to pick from too, or try sea fishing off the beach from Sea Palling round to the coast at Great Yarmouth.

A 45-minute drive from Rectory Farm will bring you to the gorgeous beaches of the north Norfolk coast and the 45 miles of the North Norfolk Coastal Path, going from Hunstanton to Cromer via Wells and Blakeney in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Must see

  • Banham Zoo (9.5 miles)
  • Bressingham Steam and Gardens (14.0 miles)
  • Grimes Graves (14.1 miles)

National Trust

  • Oxburgh Hall (16.7 miles)
