Less than 5 miles away is the splendid sandy beach at Brancaster.  The beach is stunning with miles of golden sands s and is dog-friendly. When the tide is out, you can see the old shipwrecked remains of the SS Vina which was used by the RAF or target practice before  the Normandy landing

Holkham and Wells

Holkham beach’s vast sands are ideal for building sandcastles and family days out. Behind the shoreline lies a basin, which, at high tides, fills to form a spectacular shallow lagoon. Holkham Beach is also part of one of the largest National Nature Reserves in the country and is home to many rare species of flora and fauna. Just along from Holkham, you’ll find the award-winning dog-friendly Well-next-the-Sea. Walk through the sandy pinewoods from the car park with its excellent cafe to the beach and you’ll see the row of colourful beach huts. You can then walk to Holkham beach by the 2-mile trail through the pinewoods, and return along the beach. At low-tide, children will love splashing about in the Run (you can walk a mile or so out to its end (head back from the hooter signals the incoming tide!)


The traditional family friendly seaside resort of Hunstanton is just seven miles away, and is a popular family destination. It’s know for its beach, unique striped cliffs, Sealife Centre, lively promenade, funfair and amusement arcade
