Town: Old Buckenham is reputed to have the largest village green in Britain. It has its own church, castle and a windmill, which is reputed to be the largest tower-windmill in the UK. This surprising village even boasts its own airfield and it is not uncommon to see vintage aircraft taking off or landing here. The only pub in the village dates back to the 17th Century and, while it serves good food, there are other places to eat in the nearby towns and villages, such as New Buckenham, Kenninghall and Banham. For other attractions, Banham has its own zoo and you can go to Snetterton to observe the high-octane thrills of its regular race-meetings. Old Buckenham is also perfectly situated to explore the famous Norfolk Broads and its canal system, whilst the beautiful Norfolk Coast is only a short drive away.

Owners lovely, but huge disapointment in respect of the swimming pool for two reasons:
1. It was immediately outside the owners kitchen which wasn't told to us , so a tad embarrasing to use.
2. When the pool was uncovered it filled with thousands of ants falling in from nests at the side of the pool and none of us fancied "swimming with ants" !!!
As we had two teenage girls with us and we booked the accommodation because it had a pool, we were very disappointed.
