Pulham Market is a quintessentially English, award winning conservation village in the heart of rural South Norfolk countryside.
The traditional Village Green is surrounded by pretty thatched cottages, General Store and Post Office, the church of St. Mary Magdalene with its lovely 17th century porch and two village pubs.
The Crown Inn (a 30 second stroll away) has recently been refurbished and is serving great food 7 days a week (this may change following lockdown so best to chect). You’re guaranteed a warm welcome from the new owners, Jon, Amy and their team. The pub is a beautiful heavily timbered and thatched building (probably the oldest in the village) and sits in front of the church, overlooking the village green, making it the perfect location for a meal and a drink once you’ve settled into your room – just let us know if you would like us to book you a table ahead of your arrival or during your stay.
Directly opposite the Crown Inn is the Falcon Pub managed by Jon and Tina where you will find a warm welcome in yet another 16th century pub.
You really are spoilt for choice when it comes to where to eat locally with an an excellent selection of pubs and restaurants nearby. We’re always happy to make recommendations, table reservations and book taxis if required.

The Pulhams (Pulham Market and Pulham St Mary) have a proud history and are particularly famous for their Royal Navy connections during the First World War. Under great secrecy in 1912 a large air station was constructed by the Admiralty for the operation of airships from the area. By the end of World War 1, more than 3000 Royal Navy personnel were based in the villages at one of the largest airship stations in the country. The Pulhams were home to a number of airships known as the ‘Pulham Pigs’ from 1912 to the early 1930’s and housed the famous R34 after it completed the first dual crossing of the Atlantic in 1919.
Pulham Market is conveniently located just off the A140, close to essential road, rail and air travel links whilst being tucked away in the beautiful unspoilt Norfolk countryside.
