Norfolk

Norfolk has all the ingredients that make it one of the most ideal self-catering break destinations in the UK. Situated in the east of England it has a long coastline of clean sandy beaches and lovely seaside resorts, a rural countryside of heathland, forests and nature reserves extending across a gentle landscape which is just perfect of walkers and cyclists.

Norfolk is probably most famous for its Broads; which covers some 125 miles of lock-free man-made waterways that meander through the most beautiful countryside. The Broads is in fact a National Park of rivers and lakes, quiet walking paths and cycle trails, so you don’t need a boat to enjoy this lovely part of the county. It’s also the site of internationally important wetlands, which provide a vital habitat to many creatures.

North Norfolk has a spectacular coastline with long stretches of pristine sandy beaches, coastal villages and an interior of rolling hills, wildlife and pretty towns and villages. Much of the coastal area is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The town of Cromer became a place where the Victorians and Edwardians came to holiday and the town’s architecture reflects this with grand pier.

The historical city of Norwich is well worth a place on your holiday agenda; this modern city has strong links to the past with a Norman Cathedral, city castle, clock tower and medieval cobbled streets. It’s easy to get around the city centre which has all the modern facilities you would expect including Europe’s largest undercover market. Here there are also museums and theatres, old pubs and delightful riverside walks.

To the west visitors will find the wetlands of The Fens and more lovely sandy beaches. Kings Lynn is the principal town here and has a rich maritime history as a trading port due to its position on The Great River Ouse which flows into The Wash Estuary. The town’s medieval heritage is portrayed by its cobbled streets and stunning buildings. Just along the coast is Hunstanton, a lovely seaside resort that’s perfect for family seaside holidays.

The vast forest of The Brecks lie in the south of the region includes Thetford Forest; 20,000 acres forest with cycling, walking and horse riding trials – just perfect for great days out! Moving slightly east the country becomes one of quiet country lanes and sleepy villages, ancient abbeys, cosy tea rooms and old inns.

    Tucked away down a country lane in the heart of Broadland, and enjoying glorious views across open fields, a range of handsome barns has been tastefully converted to create the attractive cluster of cottages we offer here. Some nestle under their traditional Norfolk thatch, all are very comfortably appointed and each enjoys its own individual patio. From the cottages, a gentle and tranquil rural landscape dotted with ancient churches, wind pumps and nature reserves, among a myriad other delights all under vast, arching East Anglian skies, offers a wealth of opportunity for enjoying walking, cycling and bird watching. Nearby How Hill nature reserve, with its marsh meadows, dykes, woodland and open water, is well worth exploring and the wider surrounding area supports a host of attractions. Riverside pubs and cafés are plentiful and a number of Broadland centres offer bike hire or canoe hire (possibly the most delightful way to discover the lovely reed lined waterways and their abundant wildlife) and visitors can also hire boats at nearby Potter Heigham (4 miles), or take a pleasure cruise from bustling Wroxham – the capital of the Broads and home to the ‘world’s largest village store’ as well as the train station for the Bure Valley narrow gauge steam railway. Close by, Bewilderwood, a magical tree top park, promises children a day to remember, and lovely dune backed sandy beaches are a short drive – Sea Palling lies just 6 miles away. For lively family fun, visitors need look no further than Great Yarmouth and its famous pleasure beach, or Pleasurewood Hills theme park, whilst Cromer also offers traditional seaside entertainments including a renowned end of pier show. Byegone museums, craft centres and Blickling Hall (N.T.) area all within an easy drive, as is the medieval city of Norwich with its magnificent cathedral, castle, galleries, museums, cinemas, theatres and excellent shopping. A little further afield on the north Norfolk coast, seal watching boat trips can be found at picturesque fishing villages, many of which also boast pubs and restaurants serving superb, locally caught seafood. Coarse fishing is available on local waters just 400 yards away, and the pretty village of Ludham (1 mile) boasts two pubs and a good range of shops.
