Delightful natural woodland and water garden with a private Broad. 

The Sensory Garden is the first thing you’ll see as you walk into Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden. It has been designed with our visually and mobility impaired customers in mind.

In spring the garden 'springs' into life again. The primroses come into flower along the Broads Walk and the woodland paths. In May the glorious sight of bluebells will delight you, and our spectacular candelabra primulas, together with azaleas and rhododendrons.

There's lots of activity among the water birds and if you are lucky you may see a flash of vivid blue as the kingfisher dives for its prey.

In Summer there are flowers and shrubs including hydrangeas – in particular along our Hydrangea Walk – foxgloves and many other wild flowers. Several varieties of butterflies can be seen on our butterfly path.

Autumn brings its own special pleasure, the glow of the golds, reds and browns of the trees as they shed their leaves. The stark contrast of bare branches in Winter has a different kind of beauty, and withering birds come to shelter in the broads.

In December you can buy Christmas trees, wreaths and gifts and Father Christmas will visit before Christmas with gifts for children.

Fairhaven has three miles of peaceful walks. Boat trips are available on our Private Broad and South Walsham Broad from Easter to the end of October, including trips to St Benet's Abbey.

Our loyal band of customers already know how good the food and drink is at The Fur and Feather Inn - it's what keeps them coming back. Don't just take our word for it, we're featured in the Good Pub Guide, CAMRA's Good Beer Guide and nominated for local awards. Here's why...

It's a beautiful setting to eat or drink, a thatched pub, in one of Broadland's prettiest villages. The atmosphere is as traditional as the setting. Friendly staff behind the oak topped bar, the day's newspapers on top of it. A welcoming fire and no TV, juke box or pool table. Next door is Woodforde's brewery. We serve their award winning ales straight from the cask.

A great place to come for a drink but the Fur and Feather is probably defined by its food. Here traditional meets modern, whether you choose to eat in the restaurant, the bar or large garden. Our chefs have built up a countywide reputation. Steak-and-kidney pudding fans have been known to travel from as far as Fakenham and Lowestoft after hearing about ours!

It's traditional English fare all home-made, seasonal and local where possible. There's always more than 20 main courses to choose from and menus change regularly and our specials boards change daily. Where possible, we use local suppliers. Coxford's butchers at Aylsham make our half pound burgers especially for us. It's all complimented by an exceptional wine list.

If you want to create your own memory of your visit to Norfolk you can take part in one of Linda's painting workshops, offered all year round either at her studio, abroad or your own venue.

Having worked as a full time artist and tutor for over 15 years, Linda has studied Teaching Through Creative Practice & Process at the University of East Anglia.  Inspired by everything around her, she prefers the freedom of painting from life, en plein air, in the countryside of Norfolk, France and Morocco. As it evolves her work it is looser in style and brighter in colour  her philosophy is "Where ever you look there is something to paint".

Linda, writes for Leisure Painter Magazine, had work selected for exhibition at the Designer & Artists Copyright Society in London, has tutored for Artist & Illustrator Magazine, as well as her own workshops. Linda is an associate tutor at Flatford Mill and Epping Forest for the Field Studies Council and for Shades of France
