Thanks to travel restrictions imposed following the COVID-19 pandemic, more people than ever are shunning foreign travel and planning a staycation in the UK this summer. According to recent research, a whopping 70% of Brits are planning a staycation for 2020. This could help to boost the British economy by around £27 billion.
With North Norfolk one of the country’s favourite holiday destinations, we thought now would be the perfect time to take a closer look at some of the county’s hidden hideaways.
North Norfolk attractions
Many of North Norfolk’s prettiest destinations can be found nestled in the Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Within the AONB you’ll find picturesque beaches like Holkham, Wells, Hunstanton and Brancaster. In fact, almost every stretch of sand along this coastline is well worth a visit.
As well as beaches, the AONB is also home to a number of pretty market towns and villages. Visitors to the area can indulge in Cromer’s vibrant food scene, take a ride on Sheringham’s heritage railway. They could also explore the harbour town of Wells-next-the-Sea. Holidaymakers will find an excellent choice of walking and cycling routes around these towns and villages. With the added bonus of enjoying a wealth of historic and cultural attractions.
Some of the county’s most popular visitor attractions include BeWILDerwood, a fantastic outdoor adventure park near Norwich, Holkham Hall, a stunning 18th century country house, and the expansive Blakeney National Nature Reserve where you can see seals sunbathing on the unspoilt beach. Almost all the towns and villages in North Norfolk have a selection of holiday accommodation on offer. Often found in character buildings and period properties, these unique retreats make the perfect destination for a holiday to remember.
