Why not explore the Southern Broads by boat from one of the many boat yards or try your hand at fishing. Of course with quiet roads and beautiful scenery, Loddon is the perfect place to explore by bike or on foot.

Points of Interest

Rosy Lee’s Tearoom in the town centre is a brilliant place to catch up on all the local happenings. The quirky café sits proudly at the centre of the community, and was named 7th in the Times ’30 Best Places for Tea’, even ahead of Claridge’s of London which wrote that the café is “beloved by Norfolk Broads boatsmen who flock here for home-made food served on mismatched china by the cheery lady owner. Everything is home cooked and she’ll even do you a kipper and poached egg for tea if you feel like it.”
