Get up early on Thursdays and head for Fakenham Market; local traders sell everything from bric-a-brac to arts and crafts, and it''s a great place to relax and enjoy a spot of holiday shopping. If your stay coincides with the Farmers'' Market, which takes place on the 4th Saturday of every month, it’s the ideal place to pick up your local Norfolk produce for that special meal back at your cottage; but don’t worry, you''ll find plenty of fresh local produce and organic treats in town if you miss it.

Enjoy a day at the races; you''re just a stone''s throw from Fakenham Racecourse and kids will love exploring the 500 acres of nature trails at Pensthorpe Waterfowl Park. Or you could sit back with a pint and some home-cooked pub grub at one of Fakenham''s eight pubs. If you''re looking for other dining options, there are plenty of family-friendly restaurants and cafes in the town, as well as the usual range of takeaways if you fancy cosying up back at your cottage for the evening.
