Located within its own landscaped garden at the edge of the village, this spacious detached house with fine countryside views, makes a comfortable holiday base for families. An indoor heated salt-water swimming pool with Roman steps leading into the water is available for sole use and an indoor games area offers table tennis and table football. Great Bircham itself has a village shop, post office, art/craft gallery, pub, playing field and a windmill (open April until end of September) with bakery and tearoom, and bicycles available for hire.
Lying just 8 miles away, the beautiful Norfolk coastline provides plenty of cycle routes and coastal walks, with superb bird watching to be experienced at the RSPB Titchwell Marsh. The lively seaside town of Hunstanton offers traditional attractions with long stretches of sandy beaches and rock pools, and this together with a Sea Life Centre, shops, inns, restaurants and excellent sports facilities – bowls, tennis, golf and water sports – makes it a popular venue with families. The neighbouring resort of Heacham, home to Norfolk Lavender, has uncrowded sandy beaches where a day by the sea can be spent with a picnic. For the more adventurous, sea fishing and boat trips can be arranged to Scolt Island nature reserve and to see the seal colonies. At Brancaster (8 miles), a large beach, excellent sailing and windsurfing is offered, together with world-class golf. The historical towns of Kings Lynn, Fakenham and Holt lie within easy reach and provide a selection of shops, theatres, inns and restaurants. Stately homes abound in the area, notably Sandringham Estate (grounds open all year round, house open to the public when the Royal Family is not in residence), Holkham and Houghton Halls and the historical ruins of Castle Acre and Priory.
