Shrublands is ideally
located for access to all the coastal bird reserves of which Cley and Titchwell
(RSPB) are probably the better known. However, within just a few miles the
coastal marsh areas including: Weybourne. Salthouse, Blakeney, Morston,
Burnham Overy, Burnham Deepdale, Brancaster, Holme-Next-The-Sea, Stiffkey,
Thornham, Snettisham and Hunstanton also offer superb bird watching opportunities
all year. Pensthorpe bird sanctuary and the Sculthorpe Moor Hawk &
Owl Trust (Both featured on Spring and Autumn Watch) are also only 7 miles
With its meandering tracks, quiet roads and designated cycle routes (some
pass directly by), Shrublands is an excellent starting point for walkers
and cyclists alike. There is also an hourly scheduled bus service 'from
the door' to Wells, Fakenham and further afield.
For those visiting the shrines at Little Walsingham, Shrublands is only
one and a half miles away so is ideally positioned to provide a short break
with easy access to the Walsingham events. Likewise, Shrublands is particularly
well placed to visit the Thursford Steam Museum, only 4 miles away.
Carpenter's Arms, 5 minutes walk from Shrublands, re-opened in 2017 after
a full refurbishment.
