The Area

Ever since its heyday in Victorian times, North Norfolk has been one of the finest, most popular holiday destinations in the UK. The average sunshine and temperature records are amongst the best in the country making Norfolk a holiday destination for all seasons.

The famed Norfolk countryside is fresh and green in the spring, dotted with vibrant poppies in summer and vividly coloured with reds and browns in the autumn. It is ideal for cycling, walking, horse riding, bird watching or just relaxing. The country towns, with their attractive buildings, spectacular churches, specialist shops and weekly markets, all offer their own unique kind of holiday or short break all year round.

Add to this an extensive list of stately homes, ornamental gardens, nature reserves, museums and family attractions and it very quickly becomes clear that Norfolk has something for everyone.
