Location

Oulton Broad, Suffolk, United Kingdom

With The Rookery featuring in the beginning of Dickens’ favourite book, Betsey is an ideal base for a regional tour of Dickensian History through Blundeston, Somerleyton, and Great Yarmouth. Step back into British history with a visit to the Somerleyton Estate just two minutes away; set in 5000 acres, Somerleyton Hall is widely acclaimed as one of the most beautiful stately homes in Britain and is open to the public every April to September.

There’s plenty of walks within easy reach, as well as a short one to the village pub. Nearby Lound Lakes is a nature reserve worth a visit to potentially kingfisher, osprey and bittern (when they’re visiting!). Woodland trails at Herringfleet, Corton or Fritton. Beaches at Gorleston, Corton, and Lowestoft are within 10 minutes, or wander from the property down to the Halvergate Marshes and through to Somerleyton and make a day of it, with or without your dog.

Not only is it charming, but Blundeston is a very central village for visiting the Norfolk and Suffolk Coasts and Oulton Broad, the most southern area of open water in the Broads system where there are a range of lovely restaurants and pubs. There is a warm and friendly village pub, The Plough, just 500m away, where you can taste good home cooked food and local ales. Neighbouring Lound and Somerleyton both have good gastro pubs.

Hopton nearby includes leisure resorts and amusement complexes, notably Potters Resort home of World Championship Bowls. Lowestoft, Gorleston and Great Yarmouth are a short drive, and offer everything from sedate museums to the exciting Pleasure Beach, Africa Alive and Pleasurewood Hills Theme Park. Add to that within in little over 30 minutes are Southwold and the Heritage Suffolk Coast or the fine city of Norwich and North Norfolk beyond.
