There’s a chance to have a look inside the historic How Hill House this month and get a taste of Italy.

The house, at Ludham near Hoveton, is hosting an Italian evening with a four-course set menu of treats for £22.50 per person.

The meal includes a welcome glass of Prosecco and raditional antipasta, meatballs and tiramisu.

The night on February 23 starts at 7pm and booking is essential on 01692 678555 or by email

The event is one of a host of planned dates for the house, which is based next to the Broad’s Authority-owned How Hill nature reserve.

These will include specialist weekend breaks for bird lovers, a weekend for wherry enthusiasts and a summer evening picnic concert with the Norwich Pops Orchestra in July.

The How Hill trust is more well known for its residential educational stays for schoolchildren but the charity is hoping to appeal to a new audience with its new events. It has also launched a tea rooms, which is open at weekends in the summer along with the How Hill Secret Garden.

Events manager Sharon Hardy said the aim was to give more people the chance inside the house and gardens and make more aware of the work of the Trust.

“The view from the house over How Hill is spectacular and it’s a great environment for a special celebration or a night out with a difference,” she said.
