A lovely market town in the very heart of the rural county of Norfolk, Dereham is large enough to have an excellent range of amenities but small enough to have a welcoming community feel. With lots of history and character, it’s also close to the big-city amenities of Norfolk - so with a new house here, you truly get the best of both worlds.

Living in Dereham

Stunning Norfolk 

A beautiful county that's still predominantly rural, Norfolk’s landscape includes the famous Norfolk Broads, which are between Norwich and the coast. The Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which spreads out to either side of Wells-next-the-Sea, also offers incredible views and open space to explore. For local culture, the surrounding historic villages are home to a thriving arts and crafts scene – so you are bound to return from a day trip with a new treasure.

Good connections

As well as the network of rural roads, the town is served by the A47. Which is the main route from Great Yarmouth to Peterborough via Norwich and Dereham. Bypassing the town to the south, it links with the A10 at King’s Lynn too. For public transport, regular bus routes are available into Norwich where you can access the train network across the UK. And for international travel, Norwich Airport is approximately 35 minutes away by car.

A good-life location

Brought to life by the popular weekly markets, this pretty town has a wide high street which is the perfect focal point where you can enjoy the cafés and local shops that line the street. 

A very convenient commuter base for Norwich, the town offers a direct route just 40 minutes away by car. There you have the historic cathedral quarter, a thriving university, fabulous shopping and lovely places to eat out. For education opportunities, the town has a good choice of primary and secondary schools with provision for all ages nursery. There’s also a fantastic library, entertainment venues and leisure facilities.
