About the neighborhood
Rookery Barns are in a beautiful rural location, safe sandy beaches, footpaths, shops, pubs & restaurants are an easy walk. The local historic market town of North Walsham, The Norfolk Broads National Park, The seals on the beach at Horsey, The Historic Fine City of Norwich with its lovely Cathedral and Castle, as well as being one of the top 10 shopping destinations in England, The Queens House, and most of the top Tourist attractions are an easy drive. The pretty fishing villages of North Norfolk are all within easy reach with The Gem of the Norfolk Coast Cromer only 12 kilometres away. There are many local Real Ale festivals .There is a huge amount to do in our area, for a complete list of what to do in Norfolk for the whole family and all interests.
Getting around
The easiest way of getting around is a car, how ever several of our guests have arrived by taxi. Everything you would need is an easy walk. Most Supermarkets deliver, with several take-aways that also deliver. Unfortunately there is only 12 busses a day to North Walsham however the Coast Hopper bus stops at the seafront, during the summer season and goes up and down the Norfolk coast line several times a day meaning you can get of and on as you like. There is a train station at North Walsham, the train line goes up to Cromer and into Norwich, with connections country wide.
