When you come to stay in Norfolk there is lots to do throughout the seasons. Winter is a brilliant time to enjoy the cold but also the warmth of a log fire and a well earned dip in the hot tub, please check out our properties at http://www.norfolkshiddengems.co.uk. Bring layers, walking boots and thermals and don’t miss the opportunity to enjoy Norfolk’s wildlife.
Even if you prefer the indoors during the winter season and won’t venture out unless completely necessary, it’s hard to resist a trip to Blakeney point to see the seals. This is North Norfolk but a reasonable drive from all our properties. It’s closest to Nan’s cottage, Swanton Cottage and Park Farm Barn. The seals had a busy year last year, record breaking even and have gained a lot of press. It’s currently pupping season, so lots to see from now till Easter, if you fancy an out of season break. You can grab a boat trip out amongst the national trust nature reserve, from Morston Quay, directly to the seals. Alternatively you can walk to the western point, although access is restricted at certain times of the year due to pupping and birds nesting. Check out the national trust for exact details to avoid disappointment.

Close by to Blakeney is the great beach, Wells-Next-The-Sea. This is a unique beach with its pine forest that edges the coast, I can’t get enough of breathing in that wonderful fresh pine smell. For the tree climbers amongst you, it’s a big adventure playground. With sand dunes to jump from, trees to climb, and the sea to paddle in. When the wind has taken every last breath of your energy you can settle down in the Beach cafe, next to the car park. I’d like to Thank some recent visitors for there Pine forest photo, taken after a 10k run around the area.
Along with all the coastline available, places of natural beauty like Holt country park and Sheringham country park are also lovely areas for walking, dogs and families, they also have wheelchair access routes.
The recently refurbished Sheringham Museum, The Mo is definitely worth a visit, whilst your visiting the sea front. It’s new watch tower provides fabulous views across the sea. It’s full of nostalgia and will keep kids entertained with word searches, museum trails and family events. Check the website for specific family events, http://www.sheringhammuseum.co.uk
