Court House Cottages

Things to do and see in Norfolk

Our cottage is in a lovely position set in quiet countryside, and a short drive from many attractions and places to visit. Listed below are just a few we would recommend while staying with us.

Seal colony at Horsey & Winterton

Seals can be seen all year round at Horsey and Winterton which is about a 15-20 minute drive from Rollesby. Pups are born Dec/Jan and can be viewed from platforms overlooking the beach with Wildlife Guides providing useful information. Seal Wardens are also present during the birthing season. Dogs are allowed but must be kept on a lead. During the rest of the year you may see them swimming off the coast or on land – it is a must!

Walking and birdwatching

Ordnance Survey map OL40 covers the Broads and local coastal area. Walks from along the beach inland or along the river provide interesting walks and opportunities to bird watch. Most beaches allow dogs throughout the year with restrictions at Great Yarmouth and Gorleston. Hickling has a nature reserve, as does Ranworth with board walks etc. closest to home is a small boardwalk and bird hide at Filby. How Hill Nature Reserve provides an opportunity to walk in the grounds or take a boat trip on the electric eel boat. Toad Hole Cottage is a replica of a marshman’s house with lots of interesting exhibits.

Boat trips on the Broads

Boats are available to hire from Potter Heigham or Martham (4 miles) or Wroxham (10 miles) and there are details in the cottages.
