North Norfolk has everything a UK coastal staycation needs …. wild open beaches that go on for miles, cliff walks, RSPB protected saltmarshes, historic harbours and villages. Walk, cycle, paddle board, sail and swim under big blue skies and soak up the fresh salty air. Go seal watching, bird spotting, kite flying or just sit, share a picnic and enjoy the view. You’ll be spoilt for choice with so many sandy beaches at Brancaster & Cromer, rock pools at Runton, Saltmarshes at Blakeney or Cley and so much more. You’ll never struggle for space, even in the busy summer months!
Drive west along the coast road and you will pass through the villages of Holkham, Burnham Overy State, Burnham Deepdale and then you’ll arrive at Brancaster. It is an enchanting old village with a vast beach … perfect for kite-flying at low tide!
A historic old harbour town with classic seaside charm, stunning marsh views and of course a fabulous beach! Wells is only 4 miles from the cottage, so easy to get to! Buckets load of ice cream, fish n’ chips and crabbing off the harbour wall await you!
A 15 minute walk from the cottage takes you to the historic village of Little Walsingham. Visit the Priory, the Shrines, the historic streets filled with old houses, eateries, a farm shop and of course take a trip on the Wells and Walsingham Railway!
