Self-catering holiday accommodation in Fakenham
Pick out treasures and dig into meals crafted from fresh produce after a shop at the weekly market that has been an ongoing tradition in Fakenham since the 13th century. The village centre has a lovely atmosphere and if you need a break from exploring the boutiques settle down at a bar or pub or return for rest at your holiday cottage. It sits on the River Wensum whose crystal waters are purified by the chalk beds and provides a home to species like the otter, water vole, kingfisher, water shrew and brook lamprey. Wander the streets golf course, famous horse racetrack or ride down the local cycle trails.
Take the kids to build dens or wander the gardens of Pensthorpe Natural Park where there are regular activities, talks and tours put on for guests. There’s plenty to see and do in the area around this historical market town. While a trip during the festive period means you can ensure a magical holiday when you stop by the famous Christmas Spectacular that takes place in Thursford annually. It’s 10 miles across to either the magnificent Houghton Hall and Gardens, up to Holkham Hall or to the harbour town of Wells-next-the-Sea.
