Local attractions



North Norfolk


North Norfolk is renowned for its wonderful beaches (nearest about 15 minutes drive) and tranquil countryside, offering walking, cycling, birdwatching and other outdoor activities.  There are numerous places of historical interest from stately homes to village churches and many family attractions.  There is also theatre and cinema in the nearby towns and local concerts, markets and fetes.  A full range of brochures and maps is provided for guests' use.






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!
