About the location
Dereham 7 miles; Wymondham 7 miles; Norwich 14 miles.
The quiet rural mid Norfolk village of Thuxton is set between two market towns, Dereham and Wymondham, both offering good shopping facilities and traditional weekly markets. Thuxton village is fortunate to have its original pretty railway station, now a private residence, which is part of the Mid Norfolk Railway, an 11 mile restored train line from Dereham to Wymondham. Undergoing restoration is a further 6 miles of line to County School, home to a visitors centre and the well-known former Watts Navel School. A great day out can be enjoyed at nearby Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse, a fascinating journey through time and rural Norfolk life. Just outside the market town of Fakenham you can visit Pensthorpe, home of BBC Springwatch, or visit one of the coastal RSPB sites. Spend a day visiting the city of Norwich, or just relaxing on the Norfolk broads, and don't forget to visit Norfolk's beautiful and varied coastline. There is so much to do around this part of East Anglia.
