There is also a small verandah with...

Stayed here as part of a tour group. The individual units had everything we needed - except toiletries...apart from soap on the wall, there were none until our second last day when we randomly received shampoo and conditioner!

Good position to walk into town. Footpath all the way - just walk past the cows and their calves! Anywhere in Norfolk you need a hire-a-car. Did see mini-mokes which must be fairly new. However we travelled with 8 of us in a Tarargo and that was fine. The Govenors Lodge has a great restaurant - catering for breakfast. lunch...
