Or - From Stalham. From the A149 which bypasses Stalham take the road signposted to Bacton/Happisburgh (Stepping Stone Lane). Turn left onto the B1159 and take the first left again, just after SAM business premises. Stay on this small, tree lined road until you come out into open farmland. Turn left at the cross roads. (no through road). Holmes House is the third property along this lane.
