If you are interested in nature then the Norfolk Wildlife Trust reserve at Hickling http://www.norfolkwildlifetrust.org.uk/hickling.aspx is only four miles away and both the NWT and RSPB have reserves easily reached by car or bicycle. A walk along the beach towards Waxham and Horsey may well be rewarded with sightings of seals.
The famous Waxham Barn which has been rebuilt following severe damage in the Great Storm of October 1987, originally built by the Wodehouse family in the late 16th. Century, it is one of the largest of it's kind in the country.
