Just a walk on the beach.
Only a 15min drive away is the only community of seals living in the Norfolk Broads! Whilst the area is predominantly an area of freshwater the Broads National Park extends to the coast at Horsey. This is an area of outstanding beauty, there are several walks encumbersing both inland and coast dune walking, with a huge varied wildlife population.
You can park in the National Trust car park turn at Horsey Corner off of the main coast road. It is good also to visit the restored Horsey Windpump 5 storeys high. You can also park at the Nelson Head pub with roaring fires in the winter and partake of refreshments.
Horsey is Satnav NR294AD
To see the seals – go out of the carpark to the right and take the path behind the dunes until you come to a set of wooden steps leading up over the dunes – go up these and you should see the seals on the beach. Alternatively go over the sand dunes at the carpark and walk along the beach until you come to the rock groins – it is a good walk. Please keep dogs on a lead near the seals and do not approach to close – remember they are wild animals. At certain times of the year they have pups – but they are easily disturbed at all times.
Keep an eye out for other wildlife, including many species of insects and birds from Swallows to Marsh Harriers.
