The Village of Ludham in Norfolk

Ludham Norfolk Holidays

A visitors guide to the pretty Broadland village of  Ludham located right in the middle of the Norfolk Broads National Park.  Ludham is surrounded by fields and marshes and there are plenty of opportunities for walking, boating and bird watching and exploring the Norfolk Broads National Park. Womack Water - Ludhams own small broad and staithe has moorings for boats and is a pleasant place to sit, only a short walk from the main village. Just outside the village is Ludham Bridge where boats can be hired.

Hunters Yard situated off Womack Water provides a unique opportunity to sail on beautifully traditional mahogany cabin yachts. 

A walk out to the remains of St. Benets Abbey which was founded in the 9th century follow the signs for Horning, then the signs for St. Benet's Abbey off Hall Common Road.

There are two village pubs, small but good range of shops for all your basic provisions. 

The coast is six miles away and the larger Broadland towns of Wroxham and Hoveton seven miles. Norwich and Great Yarmouth are both about half and hours drive away.

At How Hill there are stretches of sedge and reed, marsh meadows, dykes, a woodland and open water. Here there is a small information centre and museum detailing life as a marshman in the early 20th century. The sedges and reeds of the Broads are still used for traditional thatching. An Edwardian style electric boat runs trips through the dykes and marshes at certain times of the year.
