Norfolk is a mainly flat, ‘big sky’ county. It offers a vibrant mix of sea and countryside holiday locations, with miles of serene, deserted beaches, dotted with quaint fishing villages and resorts, such as Hunstanton and Wells-next-the-Sea. Holkham and Wells beach are ones that regularly win ‘Best Beach’ awards, and yet, still remain rarely crowded, making them ideal get-away spots.

Spend the day on the water inland, exploring the Norfolk Broads, which are teeming with wildlife. Go exploring and chance on a farmer’s market, such as one in Kings Lynn, or visit nearby Houghton Hall – a magnificent country house that often has events going on. Also worth a visit the coastal town of Cromer, where Amazona Zoo can be found, making for an excellent family day out. Cromer is also where The Weaver’s Way begins, a footpath that twists and turns all the way to Great Yarmouth, over 50 miles away. While visiting Norfolk’s lovely villages and towns, it’s quite likely you’ll chance on a farmer’s market, where fresh local produce and drinks are available. These are perfect for topping up supplies for fine feasts of local food back at your holiday cottage.
