Explore the region

Despite it's tranquil setting, The Grange is within easy reach of a wealth of local attractions for those who wish to go exploring.

The historic City of Norwich, with it's bustling shopping centre, is only 14 miles away and the small market town of Diss just 6 miles. For the nature lover, we are just 22 miles from Thetford Forest. Don't forget all the lovely villages on the Norfolk Broads and the coast.

You can find out more about the region, and what's on, at the Visit Norfolk web site

Please note: We don't think the "Google satellite" has flown over The Grange for some time, as the arial view does not show the extensive improvements we have made in the past few years. Please use the photos on this website as a true reflection.
