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.

    Convenient location

    Conveniently situated between the market towns of Bungay and Harleston, these attractive properties are set at the edge of the owner’s 6 acre farm, adjacent to the A143.

    Ref: CDDB


    Dating back to the 1600’s, The Innkeep was originally part of the village of Watlington’s coaching inn. There are no records to show what it was originally named but it became the Queen’s Head in tribute to Queen Anne in the early 1700s. The property remained a coaching inn until 1962, when it sadly became derelict. It was bought in 1967 by the family that still own it today and they have lovingly brought it up to date while maintaining many of its original features, including an original bread oven next to the fireplace which provides an attractive, decorative feature. Now a wing of the owners’ home, the property is beautifully decorated and furnished, and the love that the family has for the property can be clearly seen, as they have provided a wonderful holiday base from which discerning guests can explore all that the area has to offer. At just half an hour away from the stunning Norfolk Coast, there are beaches galore to be enjoyed and discovered. Snettisham, Heacham and Hunstanton beaches are all close by and offer glorious sandy vistas and traditional seaside attractions. The Sandringham Estate is close too, and is a must for culture vultures. Just 7 miles away lies the historic old town of King’s Lynn. The hanseatic town was one of England’s most important ports from as early as the 12th century and this maritime past is still very much in evidence today. Fine old merchants’ houses stretch down to the river between cobbled lanes and the elegant Custom House overlooks the harbour. Ely, with one of England’s most historic cathedrals, dating back to the 12th century, is a bustling market town and is well worth a visit. And a little further afield but still within easy reach, lies the magnificent university city of Cambridge, which is steeped in history and offers museums, guided walks, great shopping and punting on the River Cam. Bird watchers will be spoilt for choice, as will walkers and cyclists. Whatever you decide to do one thing is for sure, you will fall in love with The Innkeep just as its owners did when they first saw it, and just as they have done ever since. Shop, pub and restaurant ¼ mile.

    Beamed living room with dining area, TV and tiled floor. Kitchen. Bathroom with spa bath, separate shower cubicle and toilet. Narrow stairs to first floor: Two double bedrooms; each with sloping ceilings.
