The charming Victorian resort of Hunstanton lies on the Norfolk coast, 40 miles northwest of Norwich. Facing west across The Wash, it is one of the only places on the east coast where the sun can be seen setting over the sea. Beneath the town’s distinctive striped cliffs, an elegant seafront is a home to pitch and putt, crazy golf, bandstand concerts, funfairs and plenty more classic holiday attractions. One of many good reasons for staying in holiday cottages in Hunstanton is to explore the town’s renowned gardens, which are particularly spectacular in spring and summer. Starting at the tourist information centre, the horticultural trail includes the Esplanade Gardens and a number of lesser-known gardens around the town.
