Castle Acre Village
Castle Acre is a special Conservation village sited on the long-distance Peddar's Way footpath, and is steeped in history.

Within a short walk of Tudor Lodgings there are the following:

Castle Acre Castle - The ruins of the 11th Century Norman castle built by William De Warrene. The medieval ditch-and-bank town defences extend beyond the castle around Tudor Lodgings. Fortunately it is free to all, and a very short walk away.

The Ostrich Inn Pub - Recent revamp. Good pub food, and a good few bitters. A short walk. Fine website.

Other useful things in the village:

St. James the Great - 12th century Church

Castle Acre Priory - run by English Heritage; entrance fee to the ruins themselves for non-members.
