Stanhoe ♦ Norfolk
Stanhoe is a picturesque small village near Burnham Market and only 6 miles from the sea at Brancaster. The cottage is in a quiet lane just a few yards from a large duck pond – where the ducks love to be fed – and there is a pub serving local ale and lunchtime/evening meals close by.
Just 15 minutes away, there are miles of sandy, unspoilt beaches, uncrowded even at the height of the season. Sailing, golf, bicycle hire and riding are all available locally and the area is renowned for bird-watching at many reserves along the coast. Theatre, cinema, and concerts in nearby towns and many historic buildings, including Sandringham and Blickling, are all easily accessible, There is a weekly market in Fakenham and other local markets, antique fairs and events. The many family attractions include the beach and rides at Hunstanton, farm parks and nature trails and even a dinosaur park!
GrapeVine Cottages are the ideal place to relax and a most comfortable base from which to explore this delightful region.
