Blickling Hall, originally built in the 15th century, was once home to the Boleyn family. The Hall you see today was built in 1616 and designed by architect Robert Lyminge. There is plenty of history to delve into here, not only inside the hall but in its gardens and the wider estate. In the 20th Century, during World War Two RAF Officers were housed at Blickling – It is believed that some of the graffiti carvings in the beech trees by the lake date back to the 1940’s!

There is plenty to do on the 4,777 acre Estate and you could easily spend several days exploring. There are many way-marked tracks for walking and cycling along and you can fish on the lake.

BACTON WOOD – Wonderful woodland walks and cycle trails near Boundary Stables

Only six miles away from Boundary Stables lies Bacton Wood near the little village of Witton (Locally known as Witton Wood, it’s around 2.5 miles from Bacton itself.)

Bacton Wood is a hidden gem and one of my favourite woodlands in Norfolk. Forestry Commission owned, these 280 acres of woodland are well worth a visit!

Pockets of Ancient woodland and two 200-year-old sessile oaks still remain alongside stretches of pine, beech, birch, wellingtonia and many other species. The vast variety of habitats mean there’s a good chance of seeing plenty of wildlife. Roe, red and muntjac deer are a common sight here along with green and lesser-spotted woodpeckers, tree creepers, sparrow-hawks, blue and great tits to name a few, so bring along some binoculars. At dusk you are likely to see and hear tawny owls and also bats during spring and summer time.

There are several marked trails to follow, ranging from the 1.3 mile ‘Red Trail,’ the 2 mile ‘Blue Trail’ and the 2.5 mile ‘Yellow Trail.’ Or, if you’re feeling more adventurous, there are plenty of windy footpaths off the beaten track making it a great place to walk your dogs and explore. The woodland paths are un-surfaced dirt tracks and may be unsuitable for wheelchair users and pushchairs, especially in wet conditions.

Bacton Wood is also a popular with cyclists for leisurely bike rides on flatter wider tracks (the Red Trail,) or the varied terrain and elevations of smaller tracks are ideal for mountain bikes. During your stay, Boundary Stables have bikes and trailers available to hire – why not take one for a spin?

If it’s a lovely day for a picnic there are picnic-benches in the main car park north of the wood and several benches along the marked Red Trail.
