Enjoy a great day out with friends and family

Whilst the county has so much natural beauty to marvel at, it also offers plenty of historical sights to enjoy from the region’s rich and deep history. From castle ruins, to famous cathedrals and royal estates, you won’t fall short of historical sites to discover as a couple or with friends and family… and we’re fortunate to be surrounded by them in our corner of Norfolk!

Great days out:
15 Miles
Castle Acre

Just 15 miles away is one of the largest and best-preserved monastic sites in the country; Castle Acre Priory.

23 Miles
Ely Cathedral

Just over half an hour away from us is Ely Cathedral, the second largest Catholic Cathedral in the UK and one of Cambridgeshire’s most iconic buildings that dominates the local skyline. Wonder around the magical cathedral yourself, or enjoy a guided tour to learn all about the building’s stunning architecture, rich history and panoramic view. Visitors can also enjoy the cathedral’s onsite restaurant, café and gift shop.

20 Miles
Sandringham Estate

Most Brits have heard of the famous Sandringham Estate; the much-loved country retreat of the British Royal Family, and now a stunning natural space of 600 acres to explore by foot or by bike with your friends, loved ones or furry friend! Explore the winding marked trails through woodland and parkland, or venture of the trail and discover unmarked paths and local wildlife. And after a charming countryside walk, head to the Sandringham Courtyard and shop to enjoy a range of local shops selling artisan Norfolk products and local produce.
