Things To Do in North Walsham
The seaside town of Mundesley is just 4 miles from Swafield Barns. The sandy beach here is wide and great to walk along whatever the weather – it’s a dog-friendly part of the coast. A café offers a place to get refreshments, and there’s a great crazy golf course with pirates and dinosaurs hidden amongst the holes.
Cromer boasts a Victorian pier, chip shops and a pavilion theatre. A lighthouse, bucket and spade shops and an RNLI museum can also be found here – it’s a traditional seaside town that attracts thousands of visitors year after year. The streets are bustling with gift shops and tea rooms, and the sandy beach is popular with families and surfers.
The village of Blakeney has stone flint buildings, a guildhall, art shops and gift stores. A handful of pubs serve delicious food and there’s a choice of tea rooms and cafes.
The nature reserve at Blakeney is home to migratory birds and seals. Boat trips have been taking visitors to see the grey seals at Blakeney Point for more than 50 years – the colony that stay here is the largest England.
The knowledgeable tour guides provide information about the seals, birds and marine life on the trip and well-behaved dogs are welcome on board the boats too.
Felbrigg Hall and Gardens is on the outskirts of Cromer. This elegant country house has a grand Great Hall and Chinese bedrooms inside, and a beautiful landscaped park outside. Doggies are welcome to stroll in the park.
Bacton Woods is perfect for walking the dogs. There are pathways through the trees and a pond in a clearing. Take a picnic and make an afternoon of it.
North Norfolk is the perfect place to head if you want to get away from it all. The Cart Shed is on a livery yard where horses and ponies run in the fields.
From the balcony there are views over the surrounding countryside – it doesn’t get more peaceful than this. With the hot tub outside in the garden too, it’s tempting to stay put, but there is a lot to see nearby.
The coast is just minutes away offering empty beaches for walking with your dog. Or drive up to Cromer and spend the day at this traditional seaside town where you can stroll on the pier and tuck into fish and chips.
