Further along the coast is Brancaster for an uncrowded sandy beach and golf course. Brancaster Staithe provides a popular venue for sailing and boating enthusiasts.

The traditional seaside towns of Heacham and Hunstanton offer an array of activities for all ages. Many places of historical interest and stately homes are within the surrounding area. 20 minutes’ drive away is the historical town of Kings Lynn for shopping, market place, restaurants, inns and theatre, and also Norwich city for excellent shopping, castle museum, cathedral, theatre, market place, restaurants and inns.

    We had a lovely time at Kestrel Barn. I would not hesitate to go back. Wished we had stayed for longer. The cottage is very well equipped for a self catering stay.

    The Barn is well appointed, warm and comfortable. There are no walks (circular, preferably) nearby, so always had to take the car. Also, description said local pub was a short walk away, but in reality the walk was on a busy winding road, so not suitable or safe for walking.
