If you’re interested in enjoying the great outdoors during an upcoming holiday, you might want to schedule and plan a trip to Norfolk. Take a relaxing short break in Norfolk to enjoy the stunning coastline. With plenty of opportunities for walking, you can enjoy the many walking trails that
crisscross the region. The county has a lot to offer anyone wanting to experience nature at its very best.
Where to Go
One of the main attractions of Norfolk is the scenic coastline that stretches across the entire county, and extends into nearby Suffolk. Holkham Beach on the North Norfolk coast is a prime example of what one can expect from the beaches in the area. Voted as the best beach in the UK, you will enjoy all it has to offer during the height of summer or on a cold winter’s day. With sandy beaches backed by a pinewood forest, it’s a great place for a seaside picnic or even a coastal horse ride. Similar beaches like Holme next the Sea and Brancaster dot the coastline and can provide you alternate venues for your beachside break.
Another attraction for nature lovers is the wide choice of walking paths in the area. A good example of this is the Norfolk Coastal Path. Starting in Hunstanton and stretching all the way to Cromer, the path is 42 miles long and takes you through several highlights of the coast. Along the coastal walk you will find Cley Marshes which happens to be a great place to go birdwatching, while the marshes near Blakeney Point give visitors a first-hand opportunity to view the grey and common seals that make their home there. Birdwatching tours are a regular activity in the area as well.
Don’t miss other scenic locations like the red and white striped cliffs of Hunstanton or the splendour of Holkham Hall as well as several coastal villages that dot the area like Cley next the Sea and Blakeney.
Places to Stay
With all of these attractions, perhaps we can tempt you to take a trip to the area. Thankfully, the region has many places for you to stay. An excellent example of such an accommodation is The George Hotel at Cley. Comfortable rooms and delicious meals, the hotel is a wonderful and convenient place for any visitor to stay while in the area.
