In the area

Leafy Brundall is a pleasant Broadland village close to the River Yare and with its long history of boat building it is convenient for the fine cathedral city of Norwich, the Strumpshaw bird reserve, and the Broads generally. It has excellent road links being just off the Eastern end of the A47 Norwich by-pass with its park-and-ride facility for trips into Norwich.

There is also an excellent rail link – the Wherry Line – between Lowestoft, Yarmouth and Norwich, and from Norwich onwards to Cromer, Cambridge and London.

Brundall railway station is about 200 yards from “Breckland” and you will be about 100 yards from a good bus service to and from Norwich. The Norwich International airport is about 20 minutes drive away.

The village possesses an excellent restaurant and there are two public houses serving food within easy distance.
