About the location


Swaffham 10.5 miles, Thetford 13 miles, Ely 26 miles, Bury St. Edmunds 25 miles

Surrounded by farmland and nestled in beautiful Norfolk countryside, lies the idyllic village of Northwold. The village lies close to the border of Norfolk and Suffolk, making it perfect for exploring and making the most of all that East Anglia has to offer. The church of St Andrew, dating back to the early 13th century, is in the village centre along with the pub, The Crown Inn. Northwold lies in an area of Norfolk known as the “Brecks”, which has a unique landscape of beautiful Scots Pine forest, heathlands, wetlands, chalk streams and pingo ponds. Explore nearby Thetford Forest, Grimes Graves (the only Neolithic flint mine open to visitors in Britain), or visit the National Trust’s Oxburgh Hall or Gooderstone Water Gardens (both 6 miles). Venture slightly further afield to the historic towns of Ely, Bury St Edmunds or King’s Lynn for stunning architecture and a superb variety of shops, bars and restaurants. Visitors can also make a day trip to the North Norfolk Coast which is just an hour away. Northwold is a great base for exploring Norfolk, all year round.
