The North Norfolk Coast

0  comments

Now renamed the Royal Norfolk coast due to the new home of Prince William and Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, at Anmer near Sandringham, the Queen’s Christmas residence, North Norfolk has always been a bit of a secret holiday destination.

Huge open beaches with awarded winning salt marshes in the hinterland give way to genuine and unspoilt villages, with their warm, red pantile roofs and flint exteriors, characterised by the Dutch bell gables, a reminder of the influence from across the North Sea.  There is a little bit of the land that time forgot in Norfolk, with a timeless rural charm and a county that still makes its living from agriculture – foodies will not be disappointed as local produce abounds and the county is rightly very proud of its culinary excellence which can be sampled in a host of pubs and restaurants dotted along the coastline. Atmospheric, free of crowds and with a genuinely slower pace of life, choose a farmhouse bed and breakfast or a luxury barn conversion down on the farm for some real relaxation.
