North Norfolk
North Norfolk is an area of outstanding natural beauty. Huge rolling fields spread down to the heritage coast with its pine forest walks, coastal paths and miles of sandy beaches. The coast is rich in bird life throughout the year and there are RSPB and local wildlife trust nature reserves. Details of many walks can be found in the cottage.

Places to Visit
Unfortunately the train can no longer take the strain in this part of the world but the coastal bus service is excellent and visits most of the places listed below. Walking to the coast from the cottage is another option.

Holkham Hall and Estate - 3 miles - historic house, deer park, pottery, tea rooms, gift shop and the Victoria Hotel for meals. Lady Ann’s Drive, opposite the estate entrance, will provide parking and access to pine walks and wonderful beaches.
