Lo Norton Hall is the perfect choice for a relaxed stay in the East Anglian Countryside. Blo Norton is situated close to the picturesque Norfolk and Suffolk Borders making it ideal to explore all that both counties have to offer. Blo Norton lies on the River Little Ouse which separates Suffolk from Norfolk. The Hall reputedly provided the setting for Virginia Wolf’s short story The Journal of Miss Joan Martyn.

Many towns claim to be 'historic market towns', but there has been a market in the centre of Diss, on the Norfolk/Suffolk border for well over 500 years. The town, which lies in the beautiful Waveney Valley, was established around one of the deepest natural inland lakes in the country. The 6 acre Mere is 18 feet deep, but below this is another 51 feet of mud! The water level is maintained by a number of underground springs near to the northern edge.
Attractions in the area include the town's award winning museum located to the north of the Market Place, the wonderful Steam Museum and Gardens at Bressingham and the zoo at Banham.
