Latest reviews | Events in Horning | 10 Places to Stay

The village of Horning, stretching for a mile along the north bank of the Bure, is all about the water and its pursuits. The very name of the village means high ground between the rivers – the Ant is a mile or so to the east. Early June sees the annual Three Rivers Race, taking in the Thurne as well as the Bure and Ant. But that hectic event is somewhat out of character for what is a wonderfully quiet English waterside settlement, with its thatched cottages and flint walls. Just ten miles north east of Norwich, and easy to reach by car or by boat, Horning is one of the most popular venues in the Broads itinerary, and not only because of the big boatyard. There are three pleasant pubs by the water, the New Inn (naturally being the oldest) with its extensive garden, the Ferry (there is a little passenger ferry across the river), and the Swan. Even the village green is by the water, and there are some 20 public moorings here, but it is very busy and you are more likely to find a place on the opposite bank, where the Broads Authority provides many more spaces. The Authority has also rescued Cockshoot Broad, clearing the silt and detritus to leave a real gem of the network, with clear water and abundant wildlife – grebes, coots, herons, even the occasional bittern bombling. Anglers as well as boating types enjoy Horning, which is a good mark for Pike, Roach and Bream. For those wanting a bit of history the ruins of St Benet’s Abbey are still an imposing sight, and the 13th century St Benedict’s church just outside the village is worth a look – it even has its own moorings for visitors in Vicarage Dyke. And to see how the other half lives, have a glance at Bittern Island where there are some extremely smart properties.
