About The Hairy Pigs Rural Retreat

The Hairy Pigs' Rural Retreat is the perfect 'bolt-hole' for two whether you are looking for a weekend away or a longer holiday exploring the Norfolk Broads.

Nicely positioned in a peaceful spot away from any busy roads behind the owners' house, this welcoming holiday home has the Broads on the doorstep and the Norfolk Coast, City of Norwich and North Suffolk within easy driving distance.

Well presented throughout, accommodation is all on one level and ideal for those with an appreciation for cycling, bird watching, wildlife, canoeing/kayaking and walking with leafy lanes, riverside walks and magical waterways just waiting to be discovered.

Close to the River Yare which winds its way into Norwich, The Hairy Pigs' Rural Retreat nestles amidst the Yare Valley with the pretty Norfolk village of Loddon close by. Spend your days walking Wherryman's Way - a fantastic long distance path taking you through the country's biggest protected wetland area. Take in Hardley Flood, a haven for birdlife; Rockland St Mary (with a good pub for refreshments) and Surlingham Broads where you will find Wheatfen Nature Reserve.

For those who want to explore the wider area, Norwich's bustling city centre is under twenty minutes away by car; or head to the coast for the day for some traditional seaside fun at Great Yarmouth or seal spotting at Horsey. The Waveney Valley is also just fifteen minutes away by car with lovely market towns to visit such as Beccles and Bungay which both enjoy a riverside setting.

The area offers endless pleasure for outdoor enthusiasts and those looking to simply relax and unwind amongst the tranquility and beauty of the Norfolk Broads.
