Some of the earliest visitors to East Anglia, the Vikings, were so taken with the area that they called it ‘the Summer country’. However, these days those of us who are lucky enough to live here know that it’s a beautiful area whatever the season.
Great Ryburgh sits in the very heart of the award winning Wensum Valley, only a handful of miles inland from the beautiful north Norfolk coast.

Just across the road sits the Blue Boar Inn, itself dating back to the 17th century, where a good meal and a warm welcome are always assured. With a butcher, nursery, village shop and post office, Great Ryburgh continues to thrive…
Great Ryburgh is located only a few miles from the historic market town of Fakenham, whose weekly Thursday market is still a highlight for locals and tourists alike. A mile to the west of the village is Pensthorpe Nature Reserve, which was the home of BBC Springwatch for several years, and is an award winning tourist attraction in its own right.
For those with an passion for history the area boasts numerous sites of interest, including the superb remains of Binham Priory and the Iron Age hillfort at Warham.
