Millview Meadow is located in a peaceful village surrounded by countryside. There is a footpath that runs along the edge of the meadow that takes you up to the River Bure. From here, it is possible to walk along the river wall either towards the mouth of the river at Great Yarmouth, or upwards of the river towards villages such as Acle and Thurne. There are lots of pubs along the way (see Food & Drink) and the footpath will also take you to a local fishing lake, available for private hire. It’s an ideal place for fishing, picnics, wildlife watching or just a peaceful day out. As well as walking, the best way to get under the skin of the area is by boat. There's boat hire in the neighbouring villages of Potter Heigham and Martham, with options from canoes to motorised boats with beds. The Broads is also home to a decent network of cycle routes, country lanes and woodland paths, suitable for cyclists of all abilities – you could even cycle out to the local beaches, including Winterton-on-sea and Waxham, both of which are popular in the summer months but are also a great place to spot the seals and their pups in the winter.

Fabulous two night break for the family
From Norwich, follow the A47 towards Acle. At the roundabout, take the second exit signposted 'Caister (A1064)'. Continue on this road for 1 mile. After passing the Acle Bridge Inn and going over the bridge, take the first right by the white railings, signposted 'Runham/Stokesby'. Continue on this road, through the first village of Stokesby, then Herringby and then you will enter Runham. At the red post box in the centre of the village, turn right onto School Road. Continue on this road and follow the corner around to the left. Millview Meadow will then be directly on your right.
The nearest location offering frequent public transport links is Acle (5 miles away). From here, you can take the train towards Norwich or Great Yarmouth. There are also multiple bus services from Acle, which serve the local villages and will take passengers to the larger towns.
