We are situated in Ridlington, North Norfolk in a quiet rural location, but it is an easy walk to the safe sandy beach of Keswick and Walcott, and a short drive to the surrounding beaches of Bacton, Happisburgh, Cromer and Sea Palling. There are miles of safe sandy beaches stretching from Kings Lynn all the way down the coast to Great Yarmouth, which is famous for it’s Golden Mile, Racecourse, Stadium and a multitude of seaside attractions and entertainments. There are local golf courses at Mundesley and Cromer, 5 and 9 miles away, Sheringham, Sprowston and Norwich.
The County City of Norwich is one of England’s finest Cities. It is in the top 10 shopping destinations in the country. Don’t miss a visit to the magnificent Cathedral, towering above the surrounding medieval Streets. Norwich Castle Museum is definitely worth a day out and we recommend booking the Dungeon and battlement tour.
The Norfolk Broads National Park is a short drive, with its vast expanse of Interconnected lakes and waterways, which have become a firm favourite with sailors, fishermen and wildlife enthusiasts. You can hire a boat for the day and take a picnic to see the broads at their best.
