If you haven’t been to the Norfolk Coast you will be wondering why holiday makers love the area and return year after year. It is a perfect holiday destination with long sandy beaches, footpaths galore and lots of cafes and gastro pubs to choose from. Use our extensive feature list to find your perfect holiday cottage on the Norfolk Coast, perhaps a sea view, more rural but walking distance to a pub, part of our heritage collection or a private hot tub, the choice really is yours.
The whole area covers 450 square kilometres made up of coastal and agricultural land and was declared an AONB in 1949. There are also 2 Nature Reserves, Blakeney Point and Winterton Dunes plus two well known walks, Peddar’s Way and the North Coast Path. This is a great destination with a wonderful choice of cottage rentals on the Norfolk Coast and you will be able to set off in any direction for a day of fresh air, discovery and enjoyment.
The whole area is very family friendly and if you want to take your four legged friend many of the beaches welcome dogs all year round with restrictions only during the high season. With miles of sandy beaches it is easy to find your own quiet spot plus there are some lovely dog friendly cottages to choose from as well. There are also lots of properties with golf or fishing nearby so you don’t have to drive too much once you’ve settled into your holiday property; there really is something to please everyone.
When visiting the Norfolk Coast one of the highlights is the local food and drink with many of the towns and villages delighted to share their local fare and delicacies. Make sure you don’t miss out on the famous Cromer Crab best served as a crusty brown bread sandwich, perhaps eaten whilst strolling down the famous Victorian pier.
Visit the Farmer’s Market on the 2nd and 5th Saturday of each month at North Walsham famous for local meat and fresh fish, seasonal fruit and vegetables, artisan breads and pastries.
Inland from the coast there are pretty towns and villages to stroll around such as Burnham Market, Fakenham and Stalham with historic streets lined with independent shops, galleries and delis to tempt you. A visit to the Royal Sandringham Estate with miles of forest walks shouldn’t be missed either.
