Cake at Whitlingham

Whitlingham barn

I know I’ve covered Whitlingham Broad before, so forgive me, but I do really like it there; it’s the perfect place for a short walk near Norwich. This time my angle is slightly different though, and I’m going to quickly blog about cafecafé – the tea shop/coffee room/tourism office at Whitlingham.

Set in a flint covered barn, cafecafé serves a range of teas, coffees, cakes and lunches at good prices. Mugs of (Tetley) tea are £1.30, which is very reasonable, while delicious fruity/seeded flapjacks make a delicious accompaniment (also £1.30). The jacket potatoes looked scrummy too – starting at £5.50 with a fresh salad on the side.

There’s a perfect patio outside if it’s a nice day too – great for soaking up the last of the summer’s rays.

With the combination of setting and price, it’s little wonder that it’s packed with people all the time. It’s very convenient!

In the barn there is an information desk with hundreds of tourism leaflets about other places to visit too, so if you’re struggling to find somewhere to go, they can normally give you a few suggestions.


Hi, I'm Lucy. I've lived in Norfolk since 2001 and in that time I've grown to love this fine county. From the city of Norwich, to the countryside villages and sweeping coastline, there's so much to explore and hope to share my experiences with you here.
