Set in the heart of the Norfolk Broads, Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden is a secret hideaway just waiting to be discovered.  A unique garden rich in wildlife, the Garden is an eclectic mix of native and cultivated plantings criss-crossed with a network of dyke systems leading to a private broad.  Boat Trips run daily throughout the Summer season.  We are open every day of the year except Christmas Day, so there are plenty of opportunities to get away from it all and explore our wonderful woodland walks.


Free entry to Tearoom, Gift Shop and Plant Sales

Our Tearoom serves a great selection of light lunches, cakes and ice creams, many of which are locally or home made.  We cater for special diets including diabetics and coeliacs.

The Gift Shop stocks a wide range of cards and unusual gift ideas, many by local producers.

Be sure to visit the Plant Sales to find the perfect plant for a shady spot in your garden – woodland and bog plants a speciality.
