The East Anglia region

Norfolk has rolling countryside and was wealthy in the Middle Ages. It lacked mineral wealth and was therefore by-passed by the industrial revolution, thus retaining much of it's rural charm, and great buildings from it's wealthy past. It

Location description from owner

The East Anglia region

Norfolk has rolling countryside and was wealthy in the Middle Ages. It lacked mineral wealth and was therefore by-passed by the industrial revolution, thus retaining much of it's rural charm, and great buildings from it's wealthy past. It has a slightly slower and less frenetic pace of life.

The Norfolk Broads is the largest wetland area in Britain and has the equivalent status to a national park. The Broads were formed from medieval peat diggings which subsequently flooded and are a haven for wildlife, including bitterns, marsh harriers, hobbies, otters, kingfishers and the rare swallowtail butterfly. There are 200km of waterways, with six rivers and dozens of Broads, all with their individual nature.

Martham is so close to the Broads that less than a 2 km walk will take you there. Boat trips are available from Potter Heigham, Horsey Mere and Ormesby. Day and weekly boat hire is available from many centres, including Martham staithe. The Norfolk Broads, at 300 square kilometers, are one of Britain's best known fishing areas, with fish species including roach, rudd, bream, tench, pike and perch.

The Broads reach the sea at Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft, two busy seaside towns with something for everyone. Great Yarmouth is nearer, and has developed as a brash seaside resort which expanded greatly in the 1960s, and boasts a pier, arcades, but also has traces of it's past as England's principal East coast fishing port with a restored Elizabethan town house and workmen's row cottages.

There is an extensive sandy beach at Winterton, with dunes and nature reserves, and a brilliant cafe. Further north up the coast there is a blue flag beach with offshore reefs at Sea Palling, a lighthouse at Happisburgh, and cliffs and a classic Victorian seaside town at Cromer.

The historic city of Norwich is the 'capital' of Norfolk, with its 900 year old Cathedral, Norman castle, museums, theatres, market place and very extensive and varied shopping centres.

Farm shops and farmers' markets are a feature of everyday life, with small scale farms preserving rare breed herds, native fruit varieties and micro breweries making local beers and ciders.

There are all sorts of things to see and do locally, including:

Horsey windpump, an historic drainage pump fully restored by National Trust. This is suitable for a shorter trip out, and is 3 miles from the cottage. We found it very interesting, and very well worth the time. There is also a small café next door, and the only thatched toilet block we know of.

The Broadlands Conservation centre at Ranworth is brilliant at depicting the different stages of wetland development.

The Old Vicarage garden and garden centre at Stalham, a 20 acre exotic garden

Waxham great barn at Sea Palling, the longest (thatched) barn in the UK

RNLI national Lifeboat museum at Cromer

North Norfolk Railway at Sheringham

Blickling Hall, an excellent local country house owned by the national trust

Sutton pottery, a small studio pottery

Muckleburgh collection near Sheringham - Britain’s largest private military museum with 150 vehicles

Bewilderwood - fifty acres of wild outdoor adventure, with treehouses, zip wires, jungle bridges, boat trips, marsh walks and a good cafe.

Wroxham Barns Craft Centre - Craft workshops, children's fun fair and farm

Horsey windpump, National trust owned, where the Broads come closest to the sea.

Stalham, with the Museum of the Broads.

Hoveton Hall Gardens - beautiful woodland and walled gardens, woodland and lakeside walks.

Fairhaven Water Gardens, South Walsham - visit in June to see the vast expanse of candelabra primulas.

Norwich Castle Museum and Art Gallery - a superb collection of paintings of the Norwich School, plus archeology, natural history and geology.

Potter Heigham

Martham is a large village in the county of Norfolk, England and lies within the Broads National Park. It is situated some 10 miles north-west of the town of Great Yarmouth and 16 miles north-east of the city of Norwich. Martham has become increasingly popular over the years due to its parish church, St Mary’s, which has been dubbed the 'Cathedral of the Fleggs'. It is the biggest and grandest church for miles around, and offers spectacular views from the tower. St Mary's most magnificent treasure is the collection of medieval glass in the east windows of the south and north aisles. These are visible from the principal bedroom window of the cottage, although you need to get closer to see the detail! They consist of a series of more than twenty panels of individual saints and scenes, and it would seem part of a much larger sequence originally. Much of it is good glass of the 15th century Norwich school.

Just over a mile to the north of Martham is Martham Broad, a 140 acre nature reserve that is managed by the Norfolk Naturalist Trust. The broad is very shallow and boats are limited to a narrow marked channel. The broad is less polluted than others and so is extremely rich in aquatic life. Birds of all types can be spotted and during the months of June and July the Swallowtail butterfly may be seen near its favourite food, Milk Parsley. Just a few miles away are the nature reserves of Hickling and Horsey where the Bittern, one of England's rarest and most secretive of birds can be seen.

Despite being a relatively large village by Norfolk standards, Martham still retains its traditional charm with its large village green surrounded by attractive Georgian houses, with many of Martham's cottages thatched with Norfolk reed from the nearby marshes. Located a short distance away are the popular Norfolk Broads offers boating, beautiful scenery and wildlife. The sea-side village of Winterton-on-Sea is less than three miles away.

Martham has a range of local shops including two Co-Ops, a baker's, a post office, a butcher's, a chinese takeaway and a thatched fish and chip shop.

House rules

The cottage has very steep stairs, and it is important to ensure that the upstairs bedroom doors are properly shut to ensure that small children cannot fall down the stairs.

Dogs are permitted as long as they remain downstairs. The rear garden is not currently secure, although we aim to make it so for the 2017 season, so please check first if that's important to you.

No smoking is allowed inside the cottage or in the garden. Please use the back lane. This is because it is a thatched property.
