Local Information

The area of Wroxham is actually made up of two Broads villages - Wroxham and Hoveton, separated by the famous 17th Century low bridge spanning the River Bure. Wroxham is today often referred to as the 'Capital of the Norfolk Broads' and is an ideal location to stay with numerous waterside and local places to eat and drink within a short two minute walk of your cottage.

Wroxham was the home of the hire-boat industry back in the Victorian times and the town still retains much of the elegance and charm from this period as well as still being one of the main centres of boating on the Norfolk Broads. If you would like to enjoy Wroxham and the surrounding Broads by water it is easy to hire a boat by the hour, half day, day or longer - all located within two minutes walk from your cottage. A short boat trip will take you to Wroxham Broad where it is possible to watch beautiful traditional Norfolk yachts racing, many dating back to the mid 1900's.

In the town itself is located 'Roys of Wroxham', which claims to be the 'largest village store in the country'. Offering all of the shopping delights of a large department store combined with a supermarket, there is a good choice of local produce on sale, making a welcome change from the normal large chain stores.

Exploring a little further afield, the sandy Norfolk beaches are easily accessible within a 15 minute drive or you can enjoy the shopping delights and tourist attractions offered by Norfolk's historic city of Norwich.
