The Lord Nelson nestles in around a half acre of land in the lovely rural village of Bradenham overlooking amazing views of stunning Norfolk countryside.

Ideally located close to three popular market towns, Swaffham, Dereham, Watton and the village of Necton, the business is only around 19 miles from the City of Norwich.

The thriving village of Necton is situated at the heart of Norfolk, an impressive Norman church dominates the village and boasts a beautiful carved oak communion table dating back to 1086 and a wonderful Jacobean pulpit.

Visit Bradenham Hall, a fine Georgian house with over 27 acres of beautiful gardens and arboretum, reputed to have been visited by Lord Nelson, or enjoy the infamous Peddars Way and the Norfolk Coastal Path, offering 93 tranquil miles of picturesque Norfolk countryside close by, great for walking, cycling and horse riding.

The pretty market town of Dereham is just 6 miles away offering a variety of shops, pubs and restaurants and a local farmers' market every fortnight.

Swaffham is home to fine Georgian buildings, and the modern EcoTech Centre a bustling market town with Saturday Market and twice monthly Farmers Market.

Although Bradenham is rural, road access is good sitting just south of the A47.
