Try out the excellent local gastro-pub, just 100 yards away, where you'll receive a warm welcome from William and his team and the chance to sample some excellent beers, wines and local produce. Snetterton racing circuit is less than 5 miles away and we have plenty of parking for trailers etc.The attractive town of Attleborough is just 2 miles away with its quaint cafes, restaurants and bustling weekly market. You'll be spoilt for choice with the multitude of things to do in the area. From walking or cycling in nearby Brandon Country Park or Thetford Forest, to exploring the exciting and medieval town of Norwich with its shops, restaurants, Cathedral and Castle, you won't have a bored moment. For young children try The Dinosaur Park, Banham Zoo and Adventure playgrounds a short drive away. Older children might prefer Go Ape, a high-wire adventure, or Combat Paintball. For the gardening enthusiast visit Peter Beales Rose Garden, or for the fisherman, there is a well-stocked lake within 100 yards of The Bakehouse. The beautiful Norfolk coast-line is easily accessible or why not take a trip on the Norfolk Broads many water-ways. All in all, you'll have a warm welcome and a wonderful stay with us in peace and tranquility, waking every morning to the sound of birdsong with nothing more pressing to do than to work out where to go next for entertainment and adventure! As well as short breaks we are quite happy to receive enquiries for longer term stays. Please enquire for rates.More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Bakehouse. The extra little touch of leaving tea, coffee and milk on arrival was much appreciated. As we were visiting relatives in the area the cottage was perfect for our needs. Would highly recommend.
