Popular with families, dog walkers and kite-surfers throughout the year, Old Hunstanton is a very popular, peaceful and scenic coastal village ideal for families or friends alike. Ideally located to explore the wonders of the Norfolk coastline, you are just short walk from the popular Victorian seaside town of Hunstanton, famous for its own superb coastline and is great for a family day out with its own resident fun fair and sea life centre. Keen golfers will also love Old Hunstanton for its championship golf course and for nature lovers this is an ideal location with Pensthorpe and Titchwell nature reserves within easy reach along with Blakeney Point where you can take a boat trip out to see the resident seal colony. Old Hunstanton itself has a handy shop with a post office, a beach cafe, and three welcoming foody pubs, but for more culinary and shopping options head to the vibrant market towns of Holt, Fakenham and trendy Burnham Market which are all within easy reach.

The most northerly county in the East of England, Norfolk is a land of beautiful contrasts. From the swooning reed beds and endless maze of waterways in the Norfolk Broads; the unspoilt stretches of fens and shingle spits where bird and wildlife thrive; a famous royal palace and the historic cathedral city of Norwich, this enticing area of England is just waiting to be discovered. Visit Sandringham Palace and see where the Queen lives or find out where lavender grows; you could journey to one of the largest seal haul outs in Europe at Blakeney Point or have a traditional day at the seaside at Cromer and Great Yarmouth. The cathedral gilded city of Norwich is a wonderful place to lose yourself either walking the ramparts of Norwich Castle or the RAF Air Defence Radar Museum. The city has an exceptional array of shops, cafes and restaurants to enjoy. Well connected to the national rail and road network, Norfolk is easily accessible from London, the M25 and from major city terminals.

Norfolk is characterised by its horizons and big skies, straight highways and rural trappings. Also, when it comes to attractions, visitors to the county will be spoilt for choice. If you love animals and birds, head to RSPB Titchwell Marsh, or the Cley-Next-The-Sea. With such a long coastline Norfolk boasts some magnificent stretches of beach – favourites include Cromer, Old Hunstanton, Wells-Next-The Sea, the dunes of Winterton-on-Sea, and Brancaster (a favourite for dog owners).

There are so many places to visit and activities to get involved in on a Norfolk holiday. We have some lovely properties including country cottages, farm conversions, large family houses, apartments and surburban home from homes in our collection. Why not find your perfect holiday home today?
