The riverside at Brundall consists of a number of chalets which are situated directly on the waters edge. The village itself is set back beyond Brundall railway station on a hill overlooking the river. The Yare Public House situated just a couple of minutes walk away and offering a sound, reasonably priced menu.
Brundall Rail Station is located directly behind the pub and a short walk up the hill into the village leads to a number of shops including a Convenience Store/Post Office, Fish and Chip Shop, Chinese Takeaway, Garage, Hairdressers and Beauticians. A personal highlight of the village has got to be the Lavender House Restuarant which aside from a fabulous menu also boasts a cookery school.
Whilst peace and relaxation is the name of the game on the riverside, the location also puts you in easy reach of all the established tourist attractions that Norfolk has to offer. The village has excellent road links but should you want to leave the car at 'home' the seaside towns of Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft are a direct train ride from Brundall Station, the same applying for Norwich Town centre which is situated just 6 miles away and offers great shopping, eateries and a thriving nightlife. The Visit Norwich internet site provides some fantastic ideas regarding 'Things to Do' in the Norwich area.
The Broads itself offers a huge bredth of activities to help you 'while away' the hours. The River Yare is a perfect base from which to enjoy activities such as bird watching, canoeing, sailing, cycling and fishing or simply sitting on the decking and watching the world (and passing boats) go by. Budding artists will have plenty of subjects to focus on whether it be flora or fauna. Excellent reference points regarding everything that the Broads have to offer include the Broads Authority website and the NorfolkBroads.com website.
