Things to do in Norfolk

There are a wide variety of activities available on the West Norfolk coastline. Our self catering Norfolk chalets are located just a short distance away from the beach resort of Hunstanton. Golden sand beaches are a hallmark of the seaside resort town of Hunstanton, which is popular for its water sports, such as windsurfing and sailing.

Norfolk Coast Path

Along the shore of Norfolk's heritage coast and inside the boundaries of the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is where the Norfolk Coast Path can be found, stretching from Hunstanton in the west to Cromer in the east.

The North Norfolk Coastal Link will allow walkers to join up disconnected sections of the footpath to create one long continuous trail running over 95 miles (153 km) from Hunstanton in West Norfolk all the way round to Hopton-on-Sea in East Norfolk via Sheringham and Cromer.

Norfolk Coast Path

The seaside town of Hunstanton, "Sunny Hunny"

A number of stores and cafes can be found along the promenade in the seaside town of Hunstanton, making it an ideal destination to go for a vacation that is more typical of those spent at seaside resorts.

The town also provides a wide range of activities for children, such as a funfair, an arcade, and a number of play parks, all of which are located throughout the town. In addition, there are a number of golf clubs in the surrounding area, including the Hunstanton Golf Club and the Royal West Norfolk Golf Club, both of which include a selection of different courses for players to pick from.

In addition to being a popular beach vacation destination, Hunstanton is home to a number of interesting attractions, including the Hunstanton Lighthouse and the Sea Life Sanctuary.

Holme Bird Observatory

Hunstanton is a quaint village situated just south of Hunstanton. The Bird Observatory was founded on the banks of the award-winning Holme Dunes Nature Reserve back in 1931 and has established itself as an excellent place to study nature, especially birds, with its wide variety of habitats, which make it special for breeding and wintering birds, along with other wildlife such as dragonflies, damselflies, butterflies and wetland mammals, including water voles.

The Observatory offers walks and talks from autumn to late spring; guided tours during the summer months; opportunities for hiding; and a bird ringing scheme. The winter months offer stunning sunrises over the sand dunes to capture on camera when out with your binoculars or simply taking in some fresh air.

Holme Dunes Nature Reserve is managed by Norfolk Wildlife Trust, which is continuing to work hard to ensure its future is safeguarded for generations to come.

Holkham Hall

This spectacular house and the estate are a must-see. A short drive from Blakeney, you will find this beautiful stately home that has been the seat of the Earls of Leicester for hundreds of years. It was built in the 18th century by Thomas Coke. The magnificent brick facade overlooks a remarkable series of lakes, expanses of pasture and woods dotted with deer and red kites that swoop overhead.

The hall houses an outstanding collection of paintings by some massive names, including Van Dyck and Poussin, whilst inside there is more to explore, including a fascinating museum, gardens, woodlands, and an ice-cream parlour!

Holkham allows visitors to bring their own picnics, so take advantage while making full use of all its facilities.

There are cycles to hire to ride around the many cycle tracks. A small boating lake with boats for children and adults alike.  The children's park is great fun with soft sand for children to go wild, and the park now features a High Ropes course for little and big kids!

Wild Ken Hill

The Wild Ken Hill rewilding project is working to restore natural ecosystems on the site. The goal is to show how using land can combat climate change, enhance air and water quality, and provide habitat for important wildlife. In an effort to serve as a model for other initiatives across Europe, the Wild Ken Hill team is dedicated to using the site as a living laboratory.

Wildflower meadows, mixed woodlands, and ponds have been created on the 500-acre site. The restoration project has returned rare wildflowers to the area, like early purple orchids, and created a haven for a variety of wildlife, including red kites and goshawks.

During the winter, the Wild Ken Hill team hosts workshops on birdwatching, guided walks and talks on the property.

The project has been praised by a number of environmental organisations, including the Wildlife Trusts, RSPB, and Butterfly Conservation. In 2019, the project won a prestigious award from the European Union for its work in promoting rewilding.

Our Nature Saving Pledge

Self Catering Norfolk

Self Caterinf Norfolk is all about spending time with your loved ones and reconnecting with nature. And we want nothing more than to share this wonderful part of Norfolk with you and all that nature has to enjoy.

Here at Self-Catering Norfolk, we are committed to respecting the countryside and keeping it clean. We operate under and encourage a leave-no-trace ethos to all our guests, which means that when visiting the countryside you leave no trace of your visit to our South Beaching camping site and leave it exactly in the state it was when you arrived. It's this way of thinking that we hope to imprint on all who pass through our corner of the world which will help to ensure the protection of our precious countryside and the wildlife that live here.

The Countryside Code

The Countryside Code is supported by Natural England.

Protect The Environment

  • Take your litter home – leave no trace of your visit
  • Do not light fires and only have BBQs where signs say you can
  • Always keep dogs under control and insight
  • Dog poo – bag it and bin it – any public waste bin will do
  • Care for nature – do not cause damage or disturbance
  • Enjoy The Outdoors
  • Check your route and local conditions
  • Plan your adventure – know what to expect and what you can do
  • Enjoy your visit, have fun, make a memory

Leave No Trace

  • Plan ahead and prepare
  • Be Considerate of others
  • Respect Farm animals and wildlife
  • Travel and camp on durable ground
  • Leave what you find
  • Dispose of waste properly
  • Minimise the effects of fire
The Seashore Code

Show Respect For Seashore Creatures

Seashore creatures are fascinating and have found special ways of living in their environment. They have to adapt to survive the rigours of wave-action, exposure and predation. Some have shells for protection, but many need to hide under rocks, seaweed or in the sand.

Exploring The Seashore Is Fun, But Please Remember:

  • Leave animals where you find them.
  • Take care when touching soft-bodied animals - they are very delicate.
  • Carefully lift and replace any rocks you may have moved - there are animals underneath which need them for shelter.
  • Leave attached seaweed in place - there is plenty lying loose on the strand line.
  • Do not trample through rock pools.

Take Photos, Not Living Animals

  • Shells come in all shapes, sizes and colours. Many still contain living animals, even if they do look 'dead'. If you want to collect shells, please make sure they are empty before taking them home.

If you want to buy a souvenir:

  • Buy a photograph, book or poster of colourful marine creatures rather than shells, coral, starfish and urchins or other 'marine curios'. Remember 'curios' would almost certainly have been alive, when collected. If we don't buy them, the shops won't sell them.

Avoid Disturbing Wildlife

You can see many animals at their best when they are behaving naturally. This is true for animals such as seals, otters and seabirds, as well as rock pool animals. To avoid disturbing wildlife:

  • It is best to watch from a distance, through binoculars if possible, especially if the animals are nesting, or pupping in the case of seals.
  • Keep your dog clear of birds and other animals.
  • Remember, it is now illegal to disturb or harass many species of birds and animals.

Take Your Rubbish Home With You

Beach rubbish is unsightly and can be dangerous to sea creatures. Much of the litter on our shores comes from tourists, shipping, fishing vessels and sewage outfalls. You can help to reduce this problem when visiting the coast:

  • Take your rubbish home - burying it is no solution.
  • Keep your dog from fouling the beach.
  • Report canisters or drums that may be washed up on the beach, but do not touch them.
  • Take part in BeachWatch - the annual beach clean and survey organised by the Marine Conservation Society, or Adopt-a-Beach - a regular survey of beach litter.
  • Bag It and Bin It, Please Don't Flush It - bag and bin all plastic bathroom waste such as cotton bud sticks.

Watch Where You Go

Beaches and sand dunes are prone to erosion and easily damaged by people and vehicles. To help protect the coast:

  • Keep to established paths and dune boardwalks.
  • Park in designated car parks and keep access to footpaths clear.
  • Do not use beaches or dunes for scrambling motorcycles or other 'off-road' vehicles.
  • If you dig holes in the beach, please fill them up again.
  • Leave pebbles and rocks on the beach rather than collect them for your garden.

Be Careful!

All cliffs are unstable and potentially dangerous, yet they are an impressive sight and from the cliff top it is possible to enjoy a panoramic view of the coastline. Cliffs also provide a very specialised habitat for the plants and animals that live on them.

Take Care Near Cliffs:

  • Remember that it is dangerous to climb up or go near the top or bottom of a cliff.
  • Please don't throw or push anything over the edge of cliffs. As well as being dangerous, it can increase the rate of cliff erosion and kill or disturb wildlife.
  • Play safe on the beach too: Check tide times to avoid being cut off. Keep away from soft sand and mud - it is easy to get stuck!
