Sailing on the River Thurne Norfolk BroadsThe River Thurne – Norfolk Broads

Since the lockdown ended, North Norfolk has been very busy. It was great to see people enjoying our lovely beaches again.

Traffic has been heavier than I can ever remember but that situation has started to ease. The local businesses have benefitted from the increased footfall and the influx of visitors will have been a financial lifeline that will, hopefully, see them through to next season. Unfortunately, it now looks as though further problems are arising, so if you visit the area, please observe social distancing and wear a mask when appropriate. Thank you.  (September 24th 2020)

Enjoy North Norfolk 2020!

Will you be taking a short break or a longer holiday in North Norfolk in 2020? If so, my site is an authoritative North Norfolk information service that will help you plan your time in our beautiful county. Visit the About page to learn about me and why I claim to be an authority on this part of “Nelson’s County”.

Special places

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?
