Orchard House dates back to the 1870s and nestles on the edge of the village of Martham, which is conveniently located midway between the Norfolk Broads and the North Sea. The village has two pubs and a selection of shops and it is thought to have the only thatched fish and chips shop in Norfolk. The holiday property is full of charm and character with many original features, wooden floors and original fireplaces, making it ideal holiday accommodation at any time of the year. Orchard House is situated 3 miles from the lovely East Norfolk Coast seaside resort of Winterton-on-Sea, with its roots in fishing. Wonderful beaches with extensive sand dunes can be found here at this small village which has a few shops and a village pub. The sand dunes are nature reserve classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and ideal for bird watching and walking. Just north of Winterton is a colony of grey seals that can be regularly seen basking on the beach or popping their heads up over the waves.
The traditional seaside resort of Great Yarmouth is 9 miles away with its pier entertainment and amusements and the Time and Tide Museum. The North Norfolk Coast is well worth exploring with its pretty coastal villages. For children, BeWILDerwood at Horning offers an outdoor tree house adventure park with zip wires, jungle bridges, marsh walks and boat trips which, when all combined, add up to a great day out. Alternatively, the fine city of Norwich, 15 miles, makes a good day out with cathedrals, museums, theatres and a vast array of cafés and shops. There is a wealth of National Trust properties to visit in the area which include Felbrigg Hall (one of the finest 17th-century country Jacobean houses in East Anglia) with its garden and parkland, Blickling Hall (a magnificent Jacobean house with woodlands and lakeside walks) and Sheringham Park (beautifully landscaped and renowned for its spectacular displays of azaleas and rhododendrons in late spring). There is also Horsey Windmill which is just 3 miles away. Walking and cycling can be enjoyed along the network of quiet lanes and the birdwatching is very rewarding. Shop and pub 1 mile.
