About this location
The East Anglia region
Norfolk is a largely rural county, bordered by Suffolk to the south, Cambridgeshire to the south west and Lincolnshire to the north west. It has some outstanding areas of natural beauty, eg. the Broads and an extensive coastline stretching from the Fens in the west to Lowestoft in the east. It has many significant historical buildings, churches and museums dotted around the county. Indeed the Boleyn family made it's home here at Blickling Hall (now National Trust) for a number of years.
Norwich, the county town, is rich in history with it's Norman Castle and Cathedral. You will find many other historical buildings and cobbled streets as you walk around the pedestrian-friendly city. For your convenience there are also a wealth of interesting shops, restaurants and arts venues. It has the largest open-air market operating six days' a week in England. The city has the rivers Yare and Wensum running through it so there are many opportunities for walks and water-related pursuits.
There are many picturesque villages in Norfolk, many with ancient churches and chapels. Walkers can enjoy a number of well established routes such as Peddars Way and the Norfolk Coast Path while steam train enthusiasts can hop on the Poppy Line or Bure Valley Railway to experience the enchanting countryside. All contribute to it's popularity as a thriving tourist destination. The county also has one of the driest climates in the UK.
Wymondham lies approximately 10 miles south of Norwich. It is a thriving market town with a majestic twin towered Abbey built in 1107 by William d'Albini. It has a good range of shops and other facilities including places to eat and drink. Wattlefield is a ten minute drive away, near to the village of Spooner Row.
Set in peaceful surroundings, the cottage is a good base for accessing most of Norfolk as the A11 connects conveniently to the A47 (Norwich southern bypass) taking you west to places like Swaffham and King's Lynn or east, to the Broads and Great Yarmouth. It also connects to the Norwich Ring Road enabling you to head North to places like Aylsham, Holt and other coastal towns such as Sheringham and Cromer.
Why not bring your bicycle and explore the countryside from the doorstep? South Norfolk has ideal terrain with many comfortable cycle routes for all ages.
The cottage is also a good base for enjoying the many festivals that are on in the area. The Norfolk & Norwich Festival is on from May 9th in 2014 (www.nnfestival.org.uk) and even closer to the Cottage is the Wymondham Music Festival which is on in June this year (www.wymfestival.org.uk/).
The well-known music festival, Latitudes is on the weekend of 17-20th July 2014 (www.latitudefestival.com). This can be reached within a 50 minute drive from the Cottage.
In September (Tuesday 23rd), there is something called Moveable Feast (www.moveablefeastnorwich.org) for all the foodies!

"Lovely welcome, endearing place"
Tony and Adrienne were great hosts and made us very welcome, the cottage was perfect for our needs having my elderly father whose mobility is challenging. Being all on one level and quite open plan worked well for us.
It is a beautiful situation and we hope to go back sometime soon.
