Why stay here ...
Please Note: This CL will only be taking bookings for 2021 onwards.
Deodara is in the quaint Norfolk village of Burgh Castle just outside Great Yarmouth and a mere 25 minutes from the metropolis Norwich. Great Yarmouth seafront is just 4 miles away and a 15 minute walk will get you to a dog friendly pub beside The Norfolk Broads enroute along the Angles Way long-distance footpath.
There is pretty much one road that circles the village so were you to leave Deodara and turn either way then after about 3 miles you would (or should ) end up back at the site. On your way you would encounter the historical centrepiece of Burgh Castle namely The Roman Ruins. These are the ruins of a Roman fort built on a bank overlooking the river Waveney and Breydon Water part of the famous Norfolk Broads. Here you will be treated to glorious views as far as Acle, Reedham and Beccles, over the Halvergate Marshes Conservation Area. These places and more are linked by a riverside footpath taking you to Fritton or to Great Yarmouth.
Deodara is about 2 acres in size and lies adjacent to a beautiful 11 acre strip of fen, and is one of two CL's at Mill Farm. The other being Willoways. Entrances to each off Mill Road are 120 yards apart, Deodara being just south of Willoways with access controlled via a combination padlock the number to which you’ll be given. Children are not permitted at Deodara, but are welcome at Willoways. Both have electric hook-ups, all with 16 amps capacity, integral RCD safety cut-out and pre-pay card meters. You'll always find a couple o' quid on the electric meter so please make a note of how much there is, and that will be your starting point. £5 cards can be bought at the farmhouse. Whatever electric credit you've bought and haven't used will be refunded before you leave. Most people use less than £1 per day in the summer but expect to use a bit more at chillier times of the year especially if there’s 2 ft of snow!
Wildlife and nature enthusiasts will enjoy exploring the glorious wild life habitat of the Deodara lagoon, Willoways Water and surrounding fenland. Bird watching and photography are welcomed and any interesting photos would be gratefully received for inclusion in our website. In recent years CC visitors have reported many sightings of Kingfishers, Heron and Muntjac Deer along with an occasional Otter sighting! Fishing is welcomed at no charge.
Your canine family members are very welcome and are invited to explore the dog walk trail where they will find a wonderful assortment of scents from foxes, deer, bunnies and the like.
