Out and About
Gorsey Meadow is ideally situated for both adults and children. Children can run around and exhaust themselves in the meadow, explore the woods & build dens (accompanied by an adult), enjoy the tree swings and play ball games. The award winning ROARR Dinosaur Park is just five minutes away and Pensthorpe Nature Reserve is fantastic for adults and children especially now that their indoor play area is open for rainier days. There is a Sky rope course, ten pin bowling, crazy golf, Gressinghall Museum, local playgrounds and much more all locally. Please ask for any advice on places to visit.
Adults may wish to try one of the local golf courses, fishing lakes next door, cycle routes, National Trust properties or hire the estate tennis court on the estate. Just 20 minutes away is the historic City of Norwich, which is great for shopping and culture with the Cathedral and the Lanes, two places not to be missed. There is also a large retail park 10 mins drive away from the meadow with Sainsburys, Boots, M&S food, Next, Pet Store, McDonalds and much more.
There are a number of good local pubs offering dishes prepared with local produce. Hockering village shop, post office and garage sell everything from fresh bread, papers & magazines, general groceries and of course fuel.
We are only short drive from the outstanding north Norfolk coast. From the sweeping sands of Holkham, shopping in Burnham Market and Holt, the harbours of Wells and Blakeney to seal boat trips at Morston, world-class birdwatching at Cley and the Victorian resort of Cromer, there really is something for everyone!
We are so lucky to have so many excellent local pubs and all are family friendly. The Fox in Lyng, The Lodge in North Tuddenham, The Buck in Honingham and The Brisley Bell in Brisley are just a few to try. Booking advisable if staying in Gorsey Meadow over a weekend.
