The East Anglia region

Norfolk is the most easterly County in the UK and the driest. Farming is a major industry, mainly arable. This leads to large open landscapes, lots of wildlife and quiet areas. Our coastline is world famous, with many pretty fishing villages. The tides go a long way out leaving miles of sand. North Norfolk is renowned for its bird life, with many lovely walks and RSPB sites of a very high standard.

The Norfolk Broads National Park covers 303 sq. Km. giving a completely different man made landscape, a great boating heritage and some thing for everyone. We have several golf courses, many within a few miles. Great Yarmonth and Fakenham racecourses are within an easy drive. Come and see what our great county of Norfolk has to offer. Rookery Barn holidays is a good base in which to explore Norfolk .
