Local beaches and nature - salt water is the best remedy
Feel any stress melt away as you take in your beautiful surroundings.
Just a ten minute drive from Lark House brings you to some of Europe’s most prized beaches. With their acres of golden sand and sand dunes to explore, Brancaster, Holkham and Wells beaches are perfect for long walks, picnics and sand castles. For those brave enough, the waves will be tempting too!
The rare landscape of salt and fresh water marsh and mudflats offers the perfect home for diverse wildlife. Enjoy a ferry trip to the four-mile-long spit, Blakeney Point, and see the colony of common and grey seals that bask lazily on the water’s edge. Visit Titchwell Marsh or Pensthorpe waterfalls and spot some of the UK’s most treasured birdlife.
There’s something for everyone on the North Norfolk coast, whether it’s sailing at Brancaster, horse riding on Holkham beach or treading in the footsteps of the Romans along one of the many famous walks in the area, such as the Peddars Way and Norfolk Coast Path.
The area is also home to some of the country’s finest stately homes including Sandringham, the Norfolk retreat of Her Majesty The Queen, which is open to explore. Visit the deer park and palatial interiors of Holkham Hall, a vast stately home, built by the first Earl of Leicester in the 1750s. The walled gardens and contemporary sculpture park of Houghton Hall, built by Great Britain‘s first Prime Minister, Sir Robert Walpole are also a delight.
