There are some places in Norfolk that seem to get all the attention - but could this be one of the most underrated spots in our county?

The quiet village of Brundall sits on the River Yare and is possibly one of the most underrated villages.

1. Access to the water

Sat on the River Yare, Brundall is one of the best places for those wanting to access the water.

Hire a boat from Buccaneer Boats Marina to get onto the water for the day or longer, or head to East Hills for a seafood platter overlooking the marina.

2. Location

Hop on the train at Brundall or Brundall Gardens station and within ten minutes you reach Norwich - making it the perfect place for commuters as it is just eight miles out of the city.

Sat just off the A47, you are able to travel around Norfolk quickly from this spot, and The Broads are right on your doorstep to visit.

3. Peaceful

With the hussle and bussle of our busy lives, more and more of us are wanting to live in a quiet and peaceful place where we can relax.

Brundall Countryside Park is a haven of wildlife, flowers and grasses, and is a beautiful spot for a mindful walk.

4. Acclaimed by estate agents

Jamie Minors of Minors & Brady thinks Brundall is criminally overlooked.

He said: "Brundall is also a hugely underrated village. With superb access roads and a direct train line, it offers a tranquil and leafy setting to raise your family or to enjoy retirement.

"With two local pubs and popular local schools, the village is perfectly located on the Norfolk Broads, giving surreal views over the River Yare, opening the door to a host of Norfolk wildlife."

5. On the doorstep of a nature reserve

Strumpshaw Fen sits right next to Brundall, taking just over half an hour to walk there.

The reserve has a range of habitats and wildlife, including bitterns, kingfishers and marsh harriers.

Enjoy a walk around the reedbeds, woodlands and orchid-rich meadows on your visit.
