WALK 119: How Hill Nature Reserve 🌿

How Hill may ring a bell in some people’s minds, it’s a common Norfolk school trip location. With plenty to do and see, easily a day of discoveries at your fingertips.

How Hill was designed by Thomas Boardman in 1904, and is now run by the Broads Authority and The How Hill Trust - established in 1984.

The secret gardens and The house gardens are absolutely beautiful, they are the perfect place for a sit down, or a game of hide and seek. Toad Hall Cottage is open from April to October offering a small museum and ice creams.

We made our way to Ludham , along the broads, and stopped off for a takeaway tea and cake from The Wayfarers Cafe.

There is a public car park, toilets and it is a dog friendly location (on leads).

Very rarely do people feature in my landscape paintings of the Broads. In 1999 I painted this scene titled “Eric Edwards at How Hill”. Reed cutter and legendary marshman Eric Edwards was made an MBE in 2004 for services to the Broads. Eric cut reed and sedge at How Hill National Nature Reserve for 40 years. He was one of only two reed-cutters in the Broads to still use a scythe. He gave thousands of talks and demonstrations to schoolchildren at the How Hill Environmental Study Centre. Eric passed away on 24th May 2012 aged 71. If you’d like to find out more and listen to an interview with him, search YouTube using the words “Eric Edwards Broads”, and you will find photos and audio uploaded by Museum Broads How Hill Trust
Thank you to How Hill Trust for our educational visits where our young people learnt all about local nature, wildlife preservation and The Broads! It was fascinating to learn about the Yarmouth eco-system, and the adventure on the boat was thoroughly enjoyed! 🌳

How Hill House, situated in the heart of the Norfolk Broads, was built in 1904 by the architect Edward Thomas Boardman as his family's holiday home. The house became a study centre in 1967, but ever since 1984 it has been managed by an independent charitable trust which ensures that the property is cherished. The house is surrounded by delightful Edwardian gardens, but there is also a quite separa

First job of the day finished just in time for the day visit coach to arrive. The fallen tree was blocking its path.


If you're looking for something to do this weekend why not visit us at How Hill. Both the House and Secret Gardens are open as well at our Takeaway Service (with outside seating area) from 11am to 4pm. Below are a selection of the tasty treats made in house by our chef below, we also sell savouries, drinks and ice cream.


Photo by kind permission of Dave Burden, taken on the banks of the Ant on his annual visit to see us at How Hill. Always a favourite visitor to us but sadly we couldn't produce a Swallowtail sighting for him this year.


We have just added lots of Summer Fun Days for the children across the first two weeks of the summer holidays so if you are looking at something to do with the family check out our events and book soon as our children's events do tend to sell out quickly.


The only cool member of staff today is Ted. Everyone else is Hot Hot Hot


We hope you are all enjoying the warmth and sunshine and fingers crossed the weather stays nice for the weekend. Our Secret Gardens, car park and toilets will be open, as will our Take Away refreshments from 11am to 4pm. Why not come and have a coffee and a slice of delicious cake in our beautiful surroundings. Please note the House Gardens will be shut this weekend as we have a course in residence.


We are sorry we had to close our public toilets earlier in the week. Unfortunately visitors putting dog poo bags down the toilets broke our system. All repaired and re-opened now but please could we ask you to put the dog poo bags in the bins provided.


We were wondering if any of your lovely people happen to have some owl pellets we can come and collect. We like to dissect them with the children who visit us, but we are running low.


Our Secret Gardens and Take Away Refreshments are open this weekend so why not come and have a coffee in the sunshine and see if you can spot the elusive

It was looking a lot like Christmas at How Hill today when a group who should have had a Christmas meal in December accepted a new date after our building work caused delays.


It's official...The first Swallowtail Butterfly of the year was seen at How Hill today by Lizzy, who had opportunity to share this with a group of children staying with us.


We have found some keys on site this morning - if you lost some yesterday give us a call and we will reunite you with them. 01692 678555

Look who's jumped out of his skin today! Mr Grass Snake is 81cm or 32.5" long if you are old school. He's one of a family of four but they are all very shy. One human step and they rush into hiding.
