Norfolk Broads and Coastal Seals Grade: Leisurely
A relaxing, “get away from it all”, break on the edge of the beautiful Norfolk Broads National Park and right in the heart of the Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Beauty. We will be taking leisurely strolls and enjoying the surrounding coast and countryside without the need to rush. This is a wonderful area with far reaching views both across the Broads and the sea. The footpaths follow the many waterways and explore quaint villages.
From our lovely base in Winterton-on-Sea, we will head north along the coast where we hope to see the grey and harbour seal colony towards Horsey. Late November should provide us with sightings of seal pups on the beach. This is amongst the most accessible sites in the world to see seals -a real highlight.
We will visit Hickling Broad, the largest broad in the National Park and enjoy typical “broadland” scenery – expanses of water, fringed with reeds. On one day we may visit How Hill with its Secret Garden packed with colour and wonder. We can also take in the Broads from here with a fine example of a skeleton windpump.
We will be based at the very welcoming Mill Farm Eco Barn, luxury self catering accommodaiton in a secluded location. The spacious and modern open plan living area contains a lounge with a wood burning stove, providing a warm glow to our winter evenings. There’s also a separate games barn should we feel energetic of an evening. It’s the perfect place to unwind after a day out in the fresh air.
