Boasting picturesque scenery, a rich history and forever lasting coastlines, Norfolk really does have something for everyone to enjoy and many a memory to treasure. There are hundreds of exciting activities and things to do in Norfolk, and you wouldn’t have to worry have to worry about limiting yourself to staying in a hotel because we have the most perfect and homely holiday cottages in Norfolk.
As I mentioned, there are so many fun and exciting things to do in Norfolk, and we’ve put together a few places to visit as well as some local culinary delights for you to get your teeth stuck into – literally.
- Great Yarmouth’s Golden Mile. I doubt I need to tell you what the golden mile is being referred too, but it is literally filled with charming sandy beaches, attractions, arcades and rides. It’s the perfect holiday destination for families, and just a short distance from Norfolk. After a day at Great Yarmouth’s beach, coming back to one of our relaxing cottages in Norfolk is perfect.
- The Norfolk Broads. You can’t visit Norfolk and not experience the Norfolk Broads first hand. With over 125 miles of man-made Broads and stunning scenery, the Norfolk Broads are a must-see. Did you know that you the Norfolk Broads is the only National Park in the UK that has a city tucked up inside?
- Hunstanton Cliffs. Here you’ll find the stunning striped cliffs of Carr stone, and red and white chalk which sits nicely on top of the sea. Hunstanton is the ideal location for those who love water sport, as you can enjoy windsurfing, kite surfing, land boarding, water skiing and sailing. It’s still a must see for those looking to simply relax. Hunstanton is an old fishing village and its historical beach provides you with miles of open space to relax and absorb its natural surroundings.
- Norfolk Castles. Yes we did mean Norfolk castle. We don’t just have one historical and charming castle, we have several! A little greedy I know, but Norfolk is filled with hidden history and surprising new facts and stories. To see all seven open castles, you’ll definitely have to stay in one of our stunning cottages in Norfolk! I’m not sure if you can do it all in one day!
Now with all these exciting things to do and remember these are just a few things to do in Norfolk, you’re going to have to fuel yourself up. Here at Hall Farm Cottages in Norfolk, we’ve suggested local culinary dishes for you to sample during your stay here:
