Getting around
There is an excellent road into Norwich from Saxlingham through Stoke Holy Cross which takes about 20 minutes past the old Roman Village of Venta Icenorum at Caister. A local bus stop 5 minutes walk from the cottage is at the end of Saxlingham Green and this will take you into Norwich Bus Station in the heart of the city from where you can explore or take another bus or train further afield, eg. North Norfolk coast or into Suffolk. The Broads and coast, Lowestoft, Southwold, Yarmouth and Aldeburgh make an excellent day out.
