– Days Out – Places to Visit –
Article by David, owner of Wherry Cottage
A few slightly less strenuous places to go and things to do from your base at Peninsula. Some of these locations are within easy walking or cycling (or even boating) distance, whilst others will require a car journey.

Within a mile or two of Wroxham
Bewilderwood
A huge, award winning forest of family fun and outdoor adventure. Treehouses, zip wires, jungle bridges, Crocklebogs, Twiggles and Boggles, storytelling, boat trips, marsh walks and really yummy food!

Wroxham Barns
A ‘must visit’ for all the family – whatever your age. For stylish clothes, gifts for home and garden, Uncle Stuart’s Brewery, Bill LeGrice Roses & Plant Centre, Junior Farm, Children’s Funfair, 12 Craft Studios and award winning restaurant, it’s well worth a visit.

Hoveton Hall Gardens
The beautiful Hoveton Hall Estate covers 620 acres of parkland, gardens, woodland, arable and grazing land. This fine Regency Hall was built between 1809-1812 and has been owned by the Buxton family since 1946.

RAF Air Defence Radar Museum
The Museum traces the history and development of Air Defence Radar since its invention in 1935 right up to today’s defence of the UK and British Forces abroad

Museum of the Broads
Welcome to the only waterside museum of Broadland life in a tranquil and picturesque location at Stalham Staithe Discover the boats of the Broads and see how people’s working lives shaped the landscape. Family friendly with activities for children

Horning Village
Only a couple of miles from the cottages by road, or an hour by boat, Horning is the second main village on the river Bure. Good destination for a boat trip, stopping at one of the three riverside restaurants for lunch.

Slightly further afield
Potter Heigham village
Good place to stop on the way to Gt Yarmouth. Stop in the large car park and visit Lathams store and fishing tackle shop, have a picnic on the riverside by Potter Heigham bridge and stroll around the large boat sale marina.

The Norfolk Coast
Wroxham is the perfect hub for day visits to a wide band of the huge Norfolk coastline, visiting quiet sandy beaches and the seaside towns of Gt Yarmouth, Cromer and Sheringham, or the shingle and marsh of Blakeney and Cley-next-the sea, all ideal locations for a relaxing day out.

Gt Yarmouth
Gt Yarmouth is one of the UK’s top seaside towns and Norfolk’s premier beach resort. Width it’s Golden Mile of seafront with sandy beaches, pleasure beach, amusement arcades, pier and theatres it’s a must visit place for visitors from outside East Anglia. It’s also where the River Bure that flows past your cottage eventually meets the sea.

Cromer
Cromer is a more genteel seaside town, famous for it’s shellfish. It has sandy beaches, pier and theatre. It has cliff top walks with sea views, and a bustling town full of traditional independent shops.

Sheringham
Another seaside town, worth a visit, while visiting Cromer. For the steam train enthusiast Sheringham is the start of The North Norfolk Railway, which is a preserved steam railway, connecting the town of Sheringham to the picturesque Georgian town of Holt. Experience yesteryear with a day out travelling through some of Norfolk’s stunning coastal countryside. The railway operates both steam and diesel trains.
