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.
