Nearby attractions

  • Wells-next-the-Sea (20 mins)
    Enjoy this wonderful seaside town.  French’s fish and chips on the front is delicious.  Follow signs for the beach, park in the pay and display car park and walk up the steps to the beach.  From here, if you are feeling energetic, walk along the beach to Holkham and enjoy lunch at the Victoria Pub.  The beach is great for children and you can swim in the channel although be aware of the tide as it can be very strong.  Walk back through the magical pinewoods to the car park.
  • Holkham (20 mins)
    This outstandingly beautiful beach seems to absorb people and never gets too crowded even at the height of the summer – keep walking to escape and make your own camp.
  • Holkham Hall
    Great to visit and a wonderful park to bike through (great for children as there is little traffic) also a good outdoor children’s play area.
  • Brancaster (30 mins)
    A lovely beach but plan carefully as the road to the car park can be flooded by the tide at high tide and at low tide it can be a long walk out to the sea for little legs. Great pubs – The White Horse. Further afield but worth the drive…
