Additional Location Information

Tucked away in lush Norfolk fen-lands Brovey Lair is one of Norfolk's best kept secrets. The surrounding Brecks countryside is delightful with High Lodge in Thetford forest a short drive away. There you can walk for miles or if you’re feeling really adventurous, take the high wire trip above the forest called Go Ape. Closer to home, look out for the wild muntjack deer that occasionally prance around on our hills within full view of your room.

The north Norfolk Heritage coast is under an hour’s drive and well worth the effort. Visit the little coastal village of Cley and walk for miles at the edge of the ocean. See them sailing at Blakeney and in summer take a boat out to the seal beds. From the ancient market town of Holt, known for its antique and food stores, drive 4 miles to Sheringham Woods, a National Trust park high above the sea. Noel Coward wrote in Private Lives “Very flat – Norfolk”. Not here it’s not! Then for nostalgia ride the Poppy Line steam train from the seaside resort of Sheringham to Holt and back.

The Norfolk broads are wonderful for a voyage of 3 to 4 hours on a crisp autumn or spring day. Rent a small boat at picturesque Wroxham; explore Norfolk’s romantic waterways mooring at one of the riverside pubs for a light lunch. But be warned. Make lunch really light as a four course feast of fish, exquisite seafood and delicious desserts awaits you at dinner time.

We have adequate off street parking well away from any main roads and are less than a mile from Watton - an ancient market town granted its charter by King John in mid 13th century. Nearby is Wayland Wood covered in spring by an ocean of bluebells and, legend has it, the original setting of the fairy story "Babes in the Wood".
