The Bell in at Salhouse The Bell Inn at Salhouse


Salhouse is a quiet little village, close to the B1140 Norwich Road. It sits around half a mile from Salhouse Broad, a stretch of water, very popular with day trippers and boaters. The journey into Norwich is just 6 miles away, so the big city lights are at hand if needed. The village has a population of 1,500 people.

Things to see and do:
Salhouse Broad is definitely worth a visit on a sunny day. A half mile walk through the woods takes you to the water's edge. It's very popular with the boating fraternity, and you can spend a pleasant hour or so here, just watching the comings and goings. Unusually, the Broad also has a small sandy beach, and is backed up by a rising green space for the kids to play on. The close by village of Woodbastwick houses the Woodfordes Brewery, which has a visitor's centre, a shop for souvenirs and a pub to sample the wares. Further afield, you are only a short (10 minutes) drive from Wroxham, the self-styled Capital of the Broads. Here you can hire a self-drive boat for a few hours, or hop on a guided tour launch. Wroxham has many shops and a department store for shopping "enthusiasts". The Bure Valley Narrow Gauge Railway starts it's journey to Aylsham from here. For more on Wroxham, see HERE. A further 10 minute drive from Wroxham is the picture-postcard pretty village of Horning, with it's thatched cottages and million pound waterside residences. Norwich city centre is on your doorstep, with it's cathedral, museums, castle, open air market and enough shops to take you a whole day.
