Local Area Information


Golebys Cottage is within easy reach of the best Norfolk has to offer. Hickling boasts the biggest of all Norfolk's Broads, a nature reserve and the superb Greyhound pub is just 2 minutes walk from the cottage. The pub is also dog friendly. Hickling Broad offers an excellent variety of activities, including sailing, canoeing, kayaking, river trips, fishing, or simply watching the world go by at The Pleasureboat pub, which is situated on the banks of the Broad. An abundance of bird and wildlife thrive in and around the neighbouring Hickling Nature reserve and you don't have to be an expert to appreciate the serenity of this calm environment.  


The village of Hickling also has a pretty church and there are many lovely walks and cycle routes leading from it. We supply many walking and cycling guides in the cottage for guests to use. The village also has an active community centre at Hickling Barn, with rural cinema screenings and special events throughout the year, which guests of Golebys Cottage are more than welcome to participate in.


One of the main benefits of staying at Golebys Cottage is it's location, as it is also less than 3 miles away from Norfolk's stunning golden beaches, that stretch for miles and miles and can be enjoyed all year round. Hickling is also 5 miles away from the famous wild seal colony at Horsey Beach, which is a wonderful sight. Historic Norwich, the seaside towns of Cromer and Great Yarmouth, plus the Norfolk Broads capital, Wroxham, are all within 35 minutes drive away. Norfolk's finest family day out, BeWILDerwood, with it's tree top adventures, is 15 minutes away by car. 


The small town of Stalham is 3 miles away, where the nearest supermarket can be found.
