Melton Constable is a small Parish town, known for its nature reserves, unspoilt coastline and green countryside. Originally built as a railway town, Melton Constable is a perfectly preserved example of Victorian town planning and a typically pleasant and friendly town in North Norfolk close to the coast.
The centrepiece of the town is the famous Melton Constable Hall, a large house that is regarded as the finest specimen of the Christopher Wren style in England. Built in the latter half of the 1660s, the building is surrounded by impressive gardens and recreation areas.
The town is a great cottage holiday base for exploring both the untouched countryside and beautiful coast of Norfolk. A short walk into the fields in any direction will lead you right into the Great Outdoors and there are plenty of peaceful woodland areas to discover, lakes and streams to take in and wildlife to observe. The North Norfolk coast is just a short drive away if you fancy dipping your toes into the sea, walking the cliffs or visiting coastal nature reserves. The coastal town of Cromer is also within easy reach.
