Latest reviews | Events in Fritton | 10 Places to Stay

The Norfolk village of Fritton was until 1972 the Suffolk village of Fritton, and it does still seem more of a Suffolk place, thanks perhaps to its association with the lovely Somerleyton estate over the border. This is the eastern edge of Broadland, and although not strictly a Broad, Fritton Lake is considered by many to be as beautiful a stretch of water as anything in East Anglia. The lake is part of a well established country park, with plenty of activities available including some good coarse fishing. The church in the village, St Edmunds, is chocolate box pretty, mainly Norman with a thatched roof and a distinctively squat round tower, and an interesting chancel whose rounded end echoes the tower nicely. Within the church there is a cultural treasure, the now rather faded but still evocative wall painting of the martyrdom of St Edmund. Access to Fritton is easy by car, the village being situated on the A143 between Bungay and Great Yarmouth. It is also only a mile or so from access to the Broads at St Olaves, and the Norwich to Lowestoft train line has a stop at Herringfleet which is about two miles distant. The Waveney Valley nearby is a particularly lovely part of East Anglia, and as well as the Broads the beaches and other amenities of Yarmouth and Lowestoft are close to hand, with the beautiful medieval city of Norwich within easy striking distance too.
