Our Short Breaks Reviews

5 star review from Alex that says "Just come back from a one night stay at the stable cottage. Very well  presented accommodation, Every thing you need for a short stay.  Very dog friendly so massive plus point.Lovely location near the  beach, plenty of places to walk near by. Well stocked shop down the  road. Definitely will stay again."

"Definitely will stay again!"

5 star booking.com review from Carolyn that says "Location was just perfect, 2 min walk to Heacham beach, which was amazing,  some times had the whole beach to ourselves (my dog and I) visited in early  March and weather was mild. No tourists around. My cosy well equiped  chalet was so comfortable and the bed and duvet were lush. Breakfast was  continental. The place was in a farm complex, with cottages, shepherd's  huts and these 4 studio chalets available to stay in. There are new showers,  toilets etc for the small campsite being formed. The couple that run the  complex are extremely friendly, helpful, and I really enjoyed my short  break stay and recommend this site,"

"Location was just perfect, 2 min walk to Heacham beach"

Recommended review from Kathy & Rob on tripadvisor that says "We really enjoyed our stay. The room was lovely and also cosy to relax in  when we needed to. Lovely separate room to have a continental breakfast  in and a time to sit and have a chat to other people staying there.  We had three dogs. They were very good and relaxed in the room. It was  taking a lovely Hotel room and putting it in the country side. Nigel  the owner was very friendly and helpful if we needed to know anything. Thanks for our lovely few days break."

History: The Norfolk Coast has been a popular vacation destination for centuries.

The North Norfolk Coast has been a popular vacation destination for centuries, with our location being a part of that history. But with so many great places to visit, choosing just one can be a challenge. We’ve put together our top five North Norfolk Coast tucked-away treasures that you don’t want to miss when planning your trip to this lovely part of the world.

The coastline, which stretches for over 100 miles, is home to quaint villages, picturesque beaches, and historic landmarks. Visitors can enjoy a variety of activities, including hiking, biking, fishing, and bird watching. The Norfolk Coast is also known for its delicious seafood restaurants like The White Horse located in Brancaster Staithe, and The Kings Head at Blakeney.

In 2019, the Norfolk Coast was voted one of the best places to live in the UK by The Sunday Times. The paper's annual Best Places to Live guide helps people identify the best locations to buy a home and enjoy life in Britain. It takes into account factors including quality of life, jobs, schools, community spirit, and local amenities. The Norfolk Coast was praised for its "unspoiled coastline", "quaint villages" and "truly idyllic setting".

Winterton is known for being the only sea resort on Norfolk that faces directly onto the North Sea and has its own beach. This county town has been a favourite holiday destination since Victorian times, and it offers ample opportunities for walking along picturesque sand dunes, exploring quaint shops and simply relaxing by the seaside with a good book or coffee and friends.

During the winter months, you may be able to catch sight of the grey and harbour seals that come to visit us here on the Norfolk Coast, they like to relax in the sand dunes, feeling safe they raise their young cubs here before heading off for the summer months, leave the sand dunes for us to explore. Be sure to keep a safe distance and keep your dogs in a lead when visiting the seals.

Like Winterton, Hunstanton has long served as a gathering place over the centuries nearly 700 years ago famous poet Geoffrey Chaucer made mention of Hunstanton in his epic poem “The Canterbury Tales”! Today visitors come for its endless beaches flanked by rock cliffs or for its rich history at such landmarks as Old Hunstanton Chapel and The Red Mount Chapel built in 1585 from flintstone unearthed during construction at nearby Holme-next-the-Sea.

Along the beach, in the summer you will find traditional confectionary traders, Ice Cream vans, Fish & Chips, and more. Children will be thrilled by Pony Rides along the sand and a trip out on The Wash Monster to see the seals out in the North Sea, along with a variety of other fun activities.

A mere 10 miles north of Cromer lies Sheringham, another lovely little town renowned for its fishing heritage, sandy beaches edged by the rocky coastline and quaint stone architecture like All Saints Church built in 1421 on Beeston Bump hilltop offering stunning views of both land and sea vistas below!

 Of all the seaside on Norfolk Coast, none quite compares to picturesque, unhurried Wells-next-the-Sea whose colourful beach houses line an expansive golden sands beach starting from the iconic striped red and white Holkham Hall inlets reaching as far as Stiffkey salt marshes. As an added bonus, take a leisurely boat ride through The Nature Reserve for a closer look at native seal colonies or join in on the mussel-picking tradition!

Finally, we come to one of Norfolk’s best-kept secrets: majestic Holkham Hall. Set upon 25,000 acres of pristine parkland and deer herds, this stunning Palladian mansion was built between 1734-1764 and is still home to the Earl of Leicester’s family today who welcome visitors from near and far year-round to share in its beauty whether it be exploring the house itself or enjoying outdoor activities like horse riding, cycling or simply taking a peaceful stroll around Holkham Estate’s lake villages dotted with thatched cottages!

Our Nature Saving Pledge

Clean Short Break Norfolk

Short Break 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 Short Break 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 Norfolk Coast 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!
