Local area and attractions

Historic Houses

We are only six miles from the Royal estate of Sandringham which is open at various times of the year. There are several more large houses and estates close by including Houghton, Holkham, Oxburgh Hall, Blickling and Felbrigg.


The Thursford Collection of steam engines, Langham Glass and Norfolk Lavender can also be visited. The Sealife Centre at Hunstanton is home to hundreds of sea creatures and includes a walk-through tunnel beneath one of Europe's largest tanks. Norfolk also boasts several heritage and narrow gauge railways such as the North Norfolk Railway, Bure Valley Railway and Wells and Walsingham Railway.

Wildlife and birds

The North Norfolk coast is famous for bird watching, especially nearby RSPB Titchwell and just a short distance away Cley Marshes. Blakeney Point is host to one of the largest seal colonies in the UK and regular boat trips to see the seals can be taken from Morston.

Beaches and sea
The Norfolk coast nearby has miles of beaches with those at nearby Brancaster, Holkham and Wells being particularly well known. Boat trips are available in Wells harbour and sailing, kayaking and other watersports in Hunstanton, Brancaster and Blakeney.
Golf courses

There are golf courses nearby at Brancaster, Fakenham, Heacham and Hunstanton.

Kings Lynn

Nearby Kings Lynn is a historic port and market town and well worth a visit with surviving Tudor and Hanseatic buildings, the Customs House, St George's Guildhall (the largest remaining C15 medieval guildhall in England), the Red Mount Chapel and the excellent True's Yard Museum as well as a good range of shops, restaurants, theatre and a cinema.

Norfolk Broads

Norfolk's famous network inland rivers and shallow lakes ('broads'), now designated a National Park, are a little over an hour's drive away and make a good day out. You can book a boat trip or hire one of your own for a day (take a picnic!) or try any of numerous short or longer walks or visit historic sites such as Horsey windpump, Toad Hole Cottage or the Museum of the Broads.
