Find Us

We are situated between Spixworth and Coltishall on the B1150 (North Walsham Road) 5 miles North of Norwich City centre.

If approaching from Norwich City Centre head north along the B1150. Straight over the large roundabout crossing the A1270. We are situated 1 mile down the road, on the left hand side. (once past the Spixworth junction you will see a bank of trees on your left then a low hedge with grass verge. Look for a slightly obscured entrance just past the Old Rectory white house.


Due to the usual Satnav inaccuracies if locating us using our postcode NR12 7BG please be aware this is simply where the postcode is centered. We are on the main North Walsham Road B1150 and not down Common Loke. If you find yourself in a layby leading to Common Loke please leave the layby heading north towards Coltishall. We are 200m down the road on the left hand side.

Please note since the new A1270 was opened there is now NO ACCESS TO NORTH WALSHAM ROAD (B1150) VIA RACKHEATH LANE. This does not appear to have been updated on Satnav user maps or Google. We are on the main B1150 which can be accessed from the A1270, Norwich City Centre, Outer Ring Road (A1042), or Coltishall if approaching from the North.
