This area of Broadland is quiet and unspoilt. Whether you arrive walking, by road or on water it is a great place to explore the lovely Norfolk Broads villages of Neatishead, Irstead and Barton Turf. Barton Turf and Irstead have their own Parish Council. Neatishead is the largest of the three villages and is home to The White Horse pub. Our shop, The White House Stores, was purchased by the community of all three villages and is now open again following extensive renovations.
All the villages have their own staithe, giving access to Barton Broad, and it is this waterside setting that gives these villages that something special. Between the villages of Neatishead and Irstead is Gays Staithe and the Barton Boardwalk, allowing foot access to view Barton Broad. There are many fine walks and bike rides along quiet country lanes and to Alderfen Broad nature reserve. This Broad cannot be accessed by boat and offers a beautiful, peaceful walk and the opportunity to overlook the water from a viewing platform.
Currently there is a National Boundary review taking place, in North Norfolk it is anticipated that this will affect Neatishead. The link for the consultation is here;
