Holiday Cottages Norfolk
Stretching out comfortably on the eastern fringes of England lies the large rolling county of Norfolk. The beaches of this county really are second to none, when it comes to acres of sand, and sky! But inland Norfolk has much to offer the holiday maker too. From the dense forests of Thetford, to the boating pleasures of the Broads, and not forgetting the delights of medieval Norwich. So make sure you spend time deciding where your holiday cottages Norfolk should be – there is so much to do here.
Holiday cottages Norfolk are quite rightly famed for their unique flint and red brick construction. These are found across the county, and offer a charming base for your activities exploring Norfolk. There are many of these found in seaside villages on the Norfolk Coast, but if you really want to get away from it all, try a farmhouse in the gentle Norfolk hills.
The broad beaches of the North Norfolk coastline offer plenty of scope for outdoor activities, such as wind surfing, sand boarding or even just sun tanning! Having holiday cottages Norfolk, in one of the gorgeous seaside towns here, is a great way to make the most of these opportunities. Cromer is famed for its lovely Victorian architecture, spilling down its steep sea front, almost literally, into the sea. Then there is Hunstanton, with its fascinating red and white cliffs, or perhaps Wells where you can get the kids fishing for crabs at the quay.
Further south lies the popular holiday resort of Great Yarmouth: also great for those with kids, with its world class aquarium, and close by, the Pleasurewood Hills Theme Park. So having holiday cottages Norfolk in the villages near this part of the coast would work great for those with families.
Another option for holiday cottages Norfolk is to check out the endless forests of Thetford: here there are numerous holiday chalets in secluded glades. The flat terrain and lack of traffic make it a perfect place for cycling holidays, or maybe just tranquil walks in the pine scented woods.
Of course Norfolk is famous for its myriad of inland waters, in the area known as the Broads, and time spent here allow you to try boating yourself – gliding along the peaceful inlets, or sampling the ales and food of riverside pubs.
Although Norfolk is best known for its rural and coastal charms, it does also boast its own very special county town – Norwich. The main cathedral is just stunning, dominating the uncluttered medieval city. The town is easily reached from most of the county, so wherever you base your holiday cottages Norfolk, make sure Norwich is on the top of your list.
