The medieval city of Norwich with its Castle and Cathedral is 25 miles away with the Norfolk Broads, North Norfolk Coast, Gt Yarmouth, Lowestoft, Cambridge, King’s Lynn, Ipswich, Colchester, Sudbury, Lavenham & Constable Country all around an hour’s drive away.
There is a village shop in Bressingham and the market town of Diss, with its mix of small independent stores, restaurants, cafes and supermarkets is 10 minutes away by car. The Inter-City railway station offers travel from London in about 90 minutes.
In Diss you will also find The Mere – a six acre lake thought to have been formed in the Ice Age. A haven for wildlife, it is mentioned in the Domesday Book. The Saxon word for standing water is Disce, from which the town’s modern spelling is derived.
Other nearby attractions include Banham Zoo, Snetterton Circuit, Mid Norfolk Railway, St George’s Whisky Distillery, Diss Golf Club, Knettishall Heath Country Park, Redgrave & Lopham Fen, Stonham Barns & Owl Sanctuary, Henry Watson Pottery, Flixton Air Museum, Fersfield Airfield (from where Joseph Kennedy flew as part of the ill-fated Operation Aphrodite), Old Buckenham Airfield (another of the many nearby ex-USAAF airfields, from where James Stewart and Walter Matthau flew), Gressenhall Rural Life Museum, Thetford Priory, Dad’s Army Museum and Burrell Traction Engine Museum – to name but a few!
We are surrounded by an extensive network of local footpaths and we are also happy to meet walkers from Peddars Way & Boudicca Way long distance footpaths or the train at either Diss or Thetford stations. We offer brochures and personal knowledge of local tourist attractions and lovely pubs serving excellent food.
Inglewood House is set in half an acre of grounds and has views over unbroken countryside in all directions. You are welcome to sit or stroll in the garden and meet our chickens.
