Norfolk, United Kingdom

Homersfield is a conservation village and lies halfway between the historic market towns of Harleston and Bungay. There is a large pub in the village, the Black Swan (full menu, 4mins walk), and the Bell pub in neighbouring Wortwell (15mins walk). There is plant centre with cafe (7mins walk), which serves light brunches ie waffles - but not full English, but do include vegan and gluten free cakesWe can also boast about our village river bridge - the oldest concrete bridge in the country...
The delightful seaside town of Southwold, the historic cathedral city of Norwich and the sandy beaches of south Lowestoft are all around a 30-minute drive.
Canoe hire is available from Bungay (3 miles). Fishing, if you wish to go further afield than the garden, is available during the season in Weybread (5 miles). Day boats to explore the broads can be hired from just outside Beccles (12 miles).
There are some lovely market towns to explore - Harleston, Bungay, Beccles, Diss and Halesworth.
There are occasional buses, but a car is essential.

The 4-acre wood (2 minutes) is owned by the village and leads up to the 16c church (always open). The Angles Way runs through the village and there is a 2-mile circular walk across the marsh - passing both pubs.

I've lived in Homersfield for 42 years - man and boy obviously. Now retired from teaching (Maths and Business) and so paint a bit, write a bit and garden a lot. Amdram is still big but the juvenile leads are long gone and so odd parts for oldies with not many lines to remember. Lucy my wife is the one on the left.
