Take a boat trip to Blakeney Point
Wide open spaces and uninterrupted views of the coastline make for an inspiring visit at any time of the year. Blakeney Point is a four-mile-long sand and shingle spit and home to colonies of nesting birds and seals. The surrounding landscape of saltmarsh, mudflats and fresh watermarsh shape the rest of the nature reserve. The best way to see the seals and other wildlife is to enjoy a ferry a trip, departing from Morston Quay, with some trips offering the chance to land on the Point and visit the Lifeboat House.
Go for a winter woodland walk at Sheringham Park
Spend a day exploring 1,000 acres of varying habitat including magnificent woods, parkland and cliff top. Wildlife includes three species of deer and a wide variety of birds. From the top of the Gazebo Tower experience breathtaking views of this beautiful landscape, the north Norfolk coast and occasionally a steam train passing through. Visit the Repton exhibition and discover how the natural scenery was expertly shaped 200-years-ago by the famous landscape designer.
Amble around the estate at Felbrigg
Take time out and find yourself in the middle of one of the most peaceful, homely landscapes in Norfolk at Felbrigg Estate. Boasting a church and fields grazed by cows, and with its rolling fields, a lake and woodland walks, the estate is a quiet and tranquil destination where you can truly get away from it all and the perfect place for a Sunday afternoon stroll, near Cromer.
Discover the hidden corners of Blickling’s estate
With more than 5,000 acres to explore, the landscape of narrow hedges and tree-lined lanes, woodlands and red brick buildings has changed little over the centuries. Keep your eyes open for lost buildings like the pyramidal mausoleum, stunning views, and the wildlife who call it home. If you want to really stretch your legs, link-up with the Weavers’ Way which runs across parts of the estate.
