Bradwell, near Gorleston,
Courses: Gorleston on Sea – Great Yarmouth & Caister – Bungay & Waveney Valley
For a true links experience, pack your clubs and head for Gorleston Golf Club, where you can enjoy a fine round of golf in the seaside town of Gorleston-on-Sea. There’s nothing quite like hitting a few golf balls with the fresh sea air blowing all around you, and if that sounds appealing to you, well, you know where to head. (englishgolfcourses.co.uk)
Great Yarmouth and Caister is a fine example of traditional links golf, laid out on predominantly sandy ground over 100 years ago, and famous for the quality and stability of the greens. While modern irrigation is now used to ensure that the course is in optimal condition all year round, this does not detract from the links feel.
Bungay & Waveney Valley sits in a horseshoe- shaped loop formed by the River Waveney, and is an inland heathland course, with plenty of gorse and a mixture of pine and birch trees. Set in only 84 acres of well-drained land, it is a very comfortable course to walk and rarely suffers from excessive water.

Built in the late 1700s, Hobland Barn had a number of uses, such as for cattle, grain and potato storage. It was renovated as a family home with light, space and the Norfolk countryside views at the heart of its design. Part of a cluster of similar conversions, Hobland Barn looks over sprawling fields, which can be viewed from the first floor balcony. Whilst it is the perfect rural location, the pretty seaside town of Gorleston-on-Sea is only 3 miles away, and if the traditional seaside experience is on your list of ‘to-dos’, Great Yarmouth is a little further, at 6 miles away, with attractions, rides and ice cream galore for all the family. Hobland Barn is ideally placed to explore the National Park further inland. You can take out a day boat, hire bikes or simply walk many miles along unspoilt water’s edge, taking in the nature, wildlife and simply just enjoying this unique landscape. History abounds in Norfolk and a trip to the fine city of Norwich must be on your list of things to see and do. With its castle at the heart, and an array of cobbled lanes to explore, it would take you all day and more to really experience all this city has to offer.
Inside Hobland Barn you can expect plenty of room for the 12 people it sleeps, with two separate living areas and a spacious kitchen with a gas cooker range, breakfast bar and large French doors that open out to the patio area, swimming pool and enclosed garden. With underfloor heating, luxury bathrooms and chandeliers, this really is a ‘wow’ location to spend your break away. There are four bedrooms on the ground floor making this property ideal for larger extended families and groups. Surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows in the living areas, even a day spent inside is an enjoyable way to pass the hours. On the first floor is a large family living room, large comfy sofas and French doors opening out to the balcony overlooking the garden and neighbouring fields. A further two bedrooms including the master en-suite, compliments this large family property perfectly. Beach 3 miles. Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant 3 miles.
