Shaun and Kelly Wright, along with their young son Harry, are pleased to welcome guests to the Earsdon Annexe in the village of Worstead in North Norfolk. The Annexe sits in the family garden, overlooking a herd of Highland Cattle in the neighbouring field. Originally an outbuilding, the annexe has been converted to offer visitors the chance to stay in the gorgeous village of Worstead, famous for its weaving heritage.
The property is for exclusive use, which offers guests the chance to fully unwind and relax. Welcoming babies, it means that parents can spread out and make themselves at home and the location of the Earsdon Annexe provides a great bolthole within easy reach of several major UK cities – perfect for a weekend away or a mid-week break.
Worstead itself offers plenty to do, but there’s a special focus on the end of July when the two-day Worstead festival takes place. The festival is a fabulous way to join the community and enjoy a family day out, with live bands, craft stalls and cookery demonstrations. It’s well worth tying in your visit with the Worstead Festival!
For guests wanting to explore the region, driving is always a possibility, but the local train station means that guests can travel easily to the county city of Norwich as well as the world-famous Cromer on the coast.
If you want to stay close to home, the nearest town is North Walsham. An attractive market town, the centre piece of the town is the flint church that dates from 1858. With a newly repaired tower of St Nicholas parish church at the top of Market Place, you can navigate your way around town without losing sight of the centre. North Walsham is especially buzzing on a Thursday, when its weekly market takes place. In addition to the number of independently run local shops and cafés, the town is a most pleasant place to spend time.
The Norfolk Broads are famous the world over – and it’s really no surprise. The Broads are a superb combination of open water, woodland, fen and marsh that is particular to this region of the UK. As a National Park, the Broads are full of outdoor activities and things to do, whether you want to stick to the land or take to the water. For those of you who want to get nautical, boats of every description can be hired less than 5 minutes from the Hotel Wroxham. Boating offers a different perspective on the surrounding area and provides a lean, green way to explore the waterways and discover the varied birdlife and wildfowl.
With over 300km of footpaths and several bike-hire centres throughout the Broads, there’s no end to the different combinations of walking, cycling and running that you can enjoy in and around the Broads.
Keen anglers – or beginners – can put their hand to both salt and fresh water fishing and, if you prefer to be in the water rather than fishing or boating, Norfolk has 93 miles of coastline, full of clean, safe, family friendly beaches.
