Comfortable beds with TV, clean and luxurious bath/shower rooms, well-equipped kitchen. Pia and Ian were very welcoming and helpful. Both Norwich and the Broads were easy to get to from Rockland St Mary.

We were delighted with the lovely cottage. Beautifully laid out and with many thoughtful extras. Pia and Ian are excelent property owners. The position of the cottage is very good and although next to a road, it was still very quiet and peaceful. Some good walking in the area and a handy pub down the road.

Car: necessary


The coastal resorts of both Norfolk and Suffolk are easily accessible from Oxnead House. Within a one hour drive there are 5 blue flag beaches including Cromer and Southwold and 6 beaches of higher quality bathing that include the sandy beaches of Norfolk's east coast.


Although Rockland St Mary is serviced by a regular bus route, it is advisable that all guests should have a car. The nearest train station is in Norwich (7 1/2 miles). Norwich airport (12 1/2 miles) London Stanstead (89 miles) London Luton (106 miles). Harwich ferry terminal (76 miles) are the closest international gateways. Dover ferry terminal is a 3 hour drive away.


Oxnead House is situated at one end of the village, 200 yards from Rockland Staithe and the New Inn. The village shop and post office which supplies a good range of products is a 12 minute walk away. The next village that can be reached by foot along the Wherrymans way is Surlingham with two pubs and a shop. Loddon which is 12 minutes away by car has a range of pubs, restaurants and shops.

Further Details:

Here at Oxnead House we are privileged to be positioned close enough to the Suffolk border and with easy access to Norwich’s southern bypass that a surprisingly large number of the main tourist attractions of both counties are within an hour’s drive.

Stately homes and gardens, churches, abbeys and cathedrals, castles and forts. Blue flag beaches, amusement parks, adventure parks, zoos, steam railways, museums and galleries. Shopping and exploring in Norwich and the county towns. Cinemas and theatres, the fun of the fair, the end of the pier. Leisurely drives through the rolling countryside, cycle paths and nature rambles, fishing, boating, photography. Good food in the plentiful restaurants, drinks by the river… so much to see and do, you’ll never be bored.
