How Hill is a conservation area and a well known beauty spot. The Environmental Study Centre for the Broads is opposite. How Hill is famous for its wildlife, come here to glimpse an otter or see swallowtail butterflies in the late spring, or hear the sound of the booming bittern and there are many beautiful plants to enjoy, some rare ones. There are walks through the National Nature Reserve, two bird hides and a small marshman's museum to visit. There is also an electric launch running trips through the dykes to see the wildlife, it goes where the usual motor craft are forbidden. The Windmill offers a unique holiday home in the heart of this beautiful unspoilt area of The Broads. It is an ideal place for anyone interested in bird watching, fishing, painting, walking, boating, or just relaxing in picturesque surroundings.
How Hill is situated about one mile from the pretty village of Ludham, with very adequate local shops. A visit to Rodney in the butchers shop is a must for his famous home-made sausages and Throwers the shop is well known for its delicatessen counter and home cured ham. There is also a lovely tearoom opposite the Church offering light lunches and wonderful afternoon teas. Both Norwich and Gt Yarmouth are about thirteen miles away. Norwich is well worth a visit, being a very historic, medieval City. Norwich Castle and the Cathedral are a must to see but there are many other attractions including a lively arts and theatrical scene. The nearest beach is about eight miles by road; a bit further a field in North Norfolk are the wonderful beaches of Holkham, Brancaster and Cley. Just three miles away is “Bewilderwood” which all children seem to love.
