Beyond the estate

Walk to the Duke’s Head, our village pub on the river Waveney, or access the Norfolk Broads with a day boat hired from St Olaves. From here you can drift down to Somerleyton moorings, passing by our historic windmill along the way.


Explore Somerleyton Hall and Gardens

Fritton Lake sits as part of the Somerleyton country estate. Somerleyton Hall and Gardens is just under four miles away and is open from Easter to September inclusive. One of the great Victorian country houses sits almost unreal in the Arcadian park surrounded by 12 acres of arboretum and formal gardens including Nesfield’s famous maze and finely restored parterre. Enjoy cream teas and charming guides.
