Whatever the reason for your visit to North Norfolk, Hindolveston is ideally placed. The coast is just a few miles to the north, the Norfolk Broads a few miles east, the historic city of Norwich about 40 minutes away and the whole area is dotted with attractions and things to do.
Many guests come to stay with us because they are in the area for a specific event, such as the Thursford Christmas Spectacular, a music concert at historic Holkham Hall or Blickling Hall, maybe horse racing at nearby Fakenham racecourse?
Perhaps you are planning to visit the area for your favourite pursuit? Walking, cycling, bird watching - the North Norfolk coast is famous with Titchwell Marsh, Blakeney Point and Cley Marshes within a few miles, even closer to home, and at the right time of year, you can see soaring Honey Buzzards which regularly breed on the edge of the village.
Walking along the coast for a mile or two, or an “expedition”? Brancaster, Burnham Overy, the world famous beech at Holkham Hall, the endless shingle of Blakeney Spit (and the seals!!) or the cliff path from Weybourne through to Sheringham, West Runton and Cromer will all work up an appetite and thirst.
Maybe golf is your passion? There are many top class courses locally, where visitors are welcome. The cliff top courses at Sheringham and Cromer, links golf at Brancaster and woodland courses such as Wensum Valley and Weston Park.
One justly popular activity is best called “just pottering”. Just pottering through the lovely market towns such as Holt, Aylsham, Burnham Market, a little shopping, tea and cake, a good lunch or supper? Just pottering through the traditional sea side towns of Wells-next-the-Sea, Sheringham or Cromer. You can get to Sheringham from Holt on the North Norfolk Railway, a picturesque journey through an area of outstanding natural beauty by steam train, and eat amazing fish & chips over looking the sea from the promenade.
