Discover Norfolk - Our Local Area and Beyond

Set in a rural location down a country lane, just off of the A149, Bengate is a small rural hamlet within the parish of Worstead. Being here you have a sense of being away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, but you are within very easy reach of the North Norfolk coast, the Norfolk Broads and the city of Norwich, as well as all amenities in the local market towns of North Walsham, Aylsham, Wroxham and Stalham.

Just a short walk from the cottages is a path onto the Weaver's Way, a cycling and walking route which runs for 61 miles from Cromer to Great Yarmouth across farmland, coast and countryside, as well as Bacton Woods and the Marriot's Way cycle route being close by, so bring your walking boots, or cycle, or you can hire one from Broadland Cycle Hire. 

Locally, the village of Worstead is 1.5 miles, and Dilham 2.5 miles, both with their own public house, we would recommend The Cross Keys at Dilham. The market town of North Walsham is within 3 miles, with supermarkets of Waitrose, Lidl and Sainsbury’s, alongside many independent stores, public houses, a leisure centre with swimming pool, as well as other amenities such as banks, a library, petrol station and a main post office.

Each cottage has its own Guest Information Folder with housekeeping information, local information and at a glance details on attractions, along with tourist information leaflets and maps of the area.

We are always happy to help with advice on the area, so if you have any questions before, or after booking a stay with us, please don’t hesitate to ask!

Enjoyed a lovely couple of days. Sam and Matt made us very welcome and were most helpful. The area was perfect for pottering around on our bikes. (Little Bengate Barn)
