How to Enjoy North Norfolk in 2017
Are you considering taking a short break in North Norfolk during 2017? If so, I offer you, completely FREE, your own North Norfolk information service. Visit the About page to learn about me and why I claim to be an authority on this part of “Nelson’s County”.
We all like to peruse the glossy travel brochures but they don’t tell you about the very best Norfolk beaches, off-the-beaten-track picnic spots and other gems the tourists seldom find.
I won’t waste time on negative reviews. I will direct you to what is best, different and unusual in this unique part of Norfolk – what I think you will enjoy when taking a Norfolk holiday.
Burnham Overy Staithe to Sheringham, Cromer and North Norfolk’s Far East
A short distance on the road north from my birthplace of Holt brings you to what I believe is one of the finest coastlines in all of England.
Stretching from Burnham Overy Staithe in the west, to my personal ‘turn the car around’ point of Horsey in the east, lies a diverse landscape of salt marshes butted up against shingled shorelines; reclaimed marsh that in the summer months is grazed by cattle and sheep; wide expanses of sandy beach, cliffs dotted pink with clumps of thrift and sand dunes spiked with marram grass.
There are several nature reserves, harbour villages with pretty cottages constructed of red brick and the local flint, stately homes, extensive woodlands and bustling market towns.
Distinguished Norfolk council tax payers
Norfolk has strong bonds with royalty. Her Majesty the Queen’s extensive Sandringham Estate, with its excellent visitor centre, is located near King’s Lynn.
Celebrities from the world of entertainment also seem to like us; several have houses in the Burnham Market area.
What Norfolk does not have
- We decided many years ago not to join the nation’s motorway network. The main entry route to Norfolk is the A11 that leads to the city of Norwich.
- Heavy industry.
- Urban sprawl.
- Crime – not completely lacking but according to Home Office statistics, Norfolk now has the lowest rate in England.
The way to discover what North Norfolk has to offer is to come here and explore. I would be very surprised if you do not return again and again. Cornwall: where’s that?

BIRDscapes Gallery Exhibition
The BIRDscapes Gallery at Glandford near Holt has an exhibition running called Wetland Wildlife. It closes on the 29th October. I have been, and I recommend you go and view these outstanding works. While you are there you could pop into the Art Cafe next door for coffee and some of their excellent cake.
New trail open at Blickling Park
This new multi-use trail has an all-weather surface so it can be used throughout the year by cyclists and walkers. Wheelchairs and buggies will run smoothly on the trail.

Taswood LakesRichard and Sue Ellis have developed Taswood Lakes over the years to become a premier Norfolk facility for carp fishermen. The Lakes are about five miles south of Norwich in the pretty Tas Valley at Flordon. Comfortable fishing lodges are available. Very good access for anglers with limited mobility.
Join in the fun on a National Trust adventure this autumn in Norfolk. Check out the NT website for full details.
Get the walking boots out and enjoy some of North Norfolk's footpaths. The Coastal Path is great at any time of year; with the birds for company, the sea breeze in your face and the anticipation of a great pub for lunch. Stride out and forget any worries. ENJOY!
