Oxnead House is ideally situated in the village of Rockland St Mary, in the heart of the Norfolk Broads and is home to four beautifully furnished holiday cottages that offer a high degree of comfort and style. Set within an acre of grounds, belonging to the owners traditional 19th Century farmhouse, the cottages are well placed for a relaxing holiday in a peaceful setting.
This is a perfect place for those who enjoy the countryside and the cottages are located just two hundred yards from the village pub and Rockland Staithe where leisure boats moor. They are also within an easy walk of Wheatfen Nature Reserve and the RSPB Reserve at Rockland Broad.
This is a superb holiday destination for walkers, cyclists, bird watchers and those who enjoy canoeing, fishing or who simply want to relax in this beautiful Broadland setting. Completely self-contained, the holiday cottages afford private gardens, making them ideally suited for couples, friends, families or large groups who want to celebrate a special occasion, if all cottages are booked together.
The area offers a multitude of places to visit and interesting attractions. Within a few miles you have the historic City of Norwich with its heritage buildings, Norman cathedral, excellent shopping and great selection of restaurants, cafes, bars and pubs. The Norfolk coastal resorts of Great Yarmouth and Cromer are within easy driving distance as is the sunrise coast of Lowestoft and Southwold and the Suffolk Heritage resorts. Why not enjoy a day exploring the area along the winding country lanes; visit the County towns of North Suffolk and South Norfolk; have a meal in one of the pretty village pubs or visit one of the stately homes and gardens within the area - whatever your age, you are sure to find something to please!
