SatNav and Online Maps: NR12 8PA / NR12 8PS

Beware Sat-Nav and Google Maps directions may take you to the WRONG side of the river - and a 20 minute detour to correct. Find us on the NORTH side of the river travelling through Hoveton or Ludham to NR12 8PA (and then on to NR12 8PS). There is NOT a road crossing from south to north side of the river in Horning.

Find us just before the marina area of Horning by following Lower Street (past the shops), for 1km before turning right into Ferry Road. We are 150m on the right hand side, before The Ferry Pub. Please ask us where to park.
