So Much to See and Do!
Norfolk has a wealth of visitor attractions, beauty spots & unspoilt beaches. So many of our visitors come back because there is just so much to do they can’t fit it all in one visit! We highly recommend the Visit Norfolk website which has the details of a wealth of visitor attractions but below we have singled out the details of a few of our favourites to help you plan your stay with us here at Brick Kiln Barns!
So Much To See And Do
Our gorgeous Beaches
. Norfolk has miles and miles of unspoilt beaches. Our favourites for walking the dogs are Happisburgh, Winterton and Gorleston. All have cafes so you can refresh yourself after a long walk along the Norfolk Coastal Path
Stop of for our famous crab in Cromer and take in the pier. Catch an old steam train in Sherringham, a quaint seaside town with a nice range of independant shops and cafes. Walk the long prom at Gorleston. If you’re prepared for a bit of a drive our absolute favourite – Wells Next The Sea – is about an hour away. With its bustling high street, seafront cafes and restaurants and the mini train along the harbour to the expansive sandy beach
We have a wealth of old country houses in Norfolk. Somerleyton in Lowestoft and Fellbrigg Hall near Sherringham are fine examples of old country houses with extensive gardens. Combine Holkham Hall with Wells and take the coast route back for a fantastic day out. They also host many outdoor concerts and events. Finally the Aylsham show is hosted every year at Blickling Hall. The show is one of the highlights of the local calendar and takes place over the August holiday weekend. Lots of great local produce, livestock, old vehicles and sideshows.
The Norfolk Broads.
There is so much to do on the broads – see our activity section for more details. But no visit to the area would be complete without a visit to the World Famous Lathams store in Potter Heigham. The Fairhaven water and woodland garden sits on on South Walsham Broad. Wander through the wetlands and gardens for an abundance of plants and wildlife. They have a wealth of events throughout the year – the halloween walk is not too scary for very little ones and fun for all the family.
. Every winter thousands of seals come to the beaches at Horsey and Winterton ready to give birth to their pups. It really is a spectacular sight any time of year but the months from Nov to Feb are particularly special. You really won’t see anything like this anywhere else be sure to include this when you plan your stay!
