Horsey Mere lies within the Broads National Park and is one of the Norfolk Broads on the east coast of Norfolk. Owned by the National Trust, it is a Site of Special Scientific Interest because of its international importance for its populations of over-wintering wildfowl, amongst other wildlife.
On its banks stands a wind pump, a restored and iconic, five-storey mill which is open to the public for a small charge and offers fantastic views across the Broads landscape and over the coast. The location is, therefore, much sought after by photographers. There are facilities for boating and organised trips to view wildlife. There is a circular walk around the broad, but it is not fully wheelchair-accessible. There is, however, a wheelchair-accessible nature garden, complete with raised ponds for pond dipping.
