We have some stunning holiday homes to buy in Norfolk, the perfect place for a break away from the hustle and bustle and Norfolk is home to some picturesque seaside villages to explore. Take a look at any of these wonderful gems along the coast and you will feel right at home on your holiday.

Blakeney – Known for the wildlife, this place is great for the family. You can go crabbing with the kids, and you can take a boat trip to Blakeney Point and see the seals bobbing about in the water. The centre of the town is also home to galleries and shops to browse and many cafés to stop and have a cup of tea at.

Heacham – At the western end of the Norfolk coast, this village is famous for the spectacular lavender farms. Heacham was also the home of John Rolfe who married Native American princess Pocahontas.

Wells-next-the-Sea – Nestled between Holkham and Blakeney is Wells-next-the-Sea. There is a pretty harbour filled with the fishing boats and visiting yachts and if you want an alternative to walking a narrow gauge railway runs from the town to the beach.

Cromer – A popular place for all holiday makers, Cromer has everything for a fun day out. The beach and pier are great for kids, and there are also water sports to try. In the town there are historical buildings and museums to see as well as many restaurants where you can treat yourself to some Cromer Crab.

Happisburgh – A historic village on the eastern point of Norfolk, Happisburgh is home to the only independently operated lighthouse in the UK, the light is also the oldest working one in the county. The old church at Happisburgh has 133 steps to climb but the view is worth it with the lighthouses, churches, water towers and distant Norwich cathedral spire.

Holkham – There are many reasons to visit Holkham. The beach is one, as the sandy stretch is a popular place for those in the know (the Queen took her own children here back in the day). There is also Holkham Hall where you can see the museum, art collection, and expansive grounds.
