The sandy beaches and stunning landscapes of Norfolk have the royal seal of approval. This is where the Queen chooses to spend her down time, and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have made their home in the Norfolk countryside. Rural cottages with private pools will bring a regal air to any Norfolk holiday, and you never know who you might spot at one of the many local beauty spots…
Cottages with pools in Norfolk offer access to all the stunning sights of this beautiful and historic part of England. Explore the dramatic coastline at Blakeney or Winterton-on-Sea, or head to Hunstanton to see the iconic stripy cliffs in person. Enjoy a classic trip to the seaside from a holiday cottage with a pool near Great Yarmouth, which is famous for its ‘Golden Mile’ filled with entertainment, amusements, and all the ice cream you can eat. Nearby, the beaches of Wells-next-to-the-Sea are adorned with rows of brightly coloured beach huts. However, if you just want to get away from it all, the smaller beaches at Cromer and Happisburgh are slightly off the beaten track and ideal for a little bit of alone time.
In the Norfolk countryside, cottages with swimming pools offer a unique view of these historic surroundings. Stay in a small village such as Brundall or Melton Constable to get a sense of the peace and tranquillity which has been attracting the royal family to the county for hundreds of years. Or make a beeline for King’s Lynn, frequently voted one of Britain’s most desirable places to live, and one of the best places for royal celebrity spotting!
From Wroxham, Horning, or Norwich, set off along the Norfolk Broads for a unique boating adventure. Or retreat to the forests of Thetford or Sheringham where you can get closer to nature without sacrificing any home comforts.
Away from the tourist attractions, you can seek out the ‘real’ Norfolk in traditional market towns such as North Walsham, Fakenham and Dereham, or find a quiet spot in the countryside where you can mull over your royal duties (or lack thereof) in peace.
