Norfolk is home to a number of historical landmarks and stunning scenery, but this one is way up there at the top; grey seals. Fortunately, these grey seals are as friendly as the local folk and the beaches that they habitat on are open to the public – to an extent. It’s another excuse to book one of Hall Farm Cottages in Norfolk!
According to marine experts, the grey seals have reached a record in birth numbers this winter and apparently, these adorable creatures are getting used to human interaction, which is a good thing. Our neighbourly seals can be found on Horsey beach, and this winter the delightful animals gave birth to record number of 1,084 baby seals, compared to 804 last winter.
The colonisation of the grey seals first began in Norfolk back in 2003 and they have since made it their home, which we’re not complaining about. Although the beaches are privately owned, public access is still available in some areas; this is for the safety of both the seals and the public. Horsey beach is closed and protected from any public access during breeding season which is between November and January.
We love the seals here at Hall Farm Cottages in Norfolk. They are simply irresistible and a must see if you’re lucky enough to get the chance to.
