About the neighbourhood
Ludham is ideally placed as a Norfolk holiday destination. The village has pubs, a post office and shops and also has a historic church and popular tearoom at the centre. The Broads National Nature Reserve surrounds the village, which is also just a short drive from beautiful unspoilt beaches in one direction and Norwich city centre in another. Ludham Bridge, How Hill and St Benet's Abbey are all accessible on foot or by bike. Cycle and kayak hire are easily available locally, as are day boats and guided trips - all are ideal for exploring the Broads and discovering the myriad of native wildlife. A variety of historic places of interest and renowned gardens are also on offer nearby.
Getting around
Ludham is ideally placed for exploring the Broads, as the village is located right in the midst of the Broads National Park. It is perfectly possible to leave the car parked for the entirety of your holiday and get around by cycle, boat or on foot: in fact, you will experience many more of the delights of the Broads first-hand if you do so. There is also a regular, but limited local bus service, for guests who prefer to use public transport. However, most guests prefer to combine a few 'car-free' days with making short journeys to access the wonderful local beaches, or venturing further afield to explore the many and varied places of interest that the area offers. Limes Farm has a Type 2 EV chargepoint on site, for electric vehicles.
