Find My Favourite Holiday Cottages on the North Norfolk Coast

The North Norfolk Coast stretches from The Wash in the west to the wild dunes of Winterton in the east, covering 450 square kilometres. The area is remarkably unspoiled, with a pristine stretch of coast backed by primarily agricultural land. Its communities include Mundesley, Cromer, Sheringham, Blakeney, Hunstanton and Wells-next-the-Sea. It is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with vast sand and shingle beaches, salt marshes, creeks, classic resorts and sleepy fishing villages to discover. North Norfolk Coast holiday homes lie near two National Nature Reserves: Blakeney Point, where a four-mile spit of shingle and dunes juts into the sea, and sprawling Winterton Dunes. Family days out on self-catering holidays in North Norfolk include a ride on the region’s steam railway, known as the ‘Poppy Line’, which passes through some of the county’s most idyllic countryside, and boat trips to see the country’s biggest seal colony at Blakeney Point.

Dotted with wooden groynes and rows of beach huts, many of North Norfolk’s beaches are massive stretches of sand and shingle, perfect for long days by the sea. Holkham and Wells-next-the-Sea are two of the best. A wander along Cromer Pier is highly recommended, with loads of nostalgic amusements and a historic theatre at the far end. Sheringham is undoubtedly one of the region’s prettiest towns and a must-see during your stay in a North Norfolk holiday cottage. Backed by a promenade and rows of beach huts, its beach is a glorious spot for sunbathing or a bracing dip in the sea.

The Norfolk Coast is a popular destination for walking holidays. The Coast Path runs from Hunstanton to Hopton-on-Sea, providing a spectacular way to discover the area. This renowned route links with another long-distance footpath, Peddars Way, which follows a Roman Road for 46 miles and is said to be haunted by a ghostly hound known as Black Shuck.
