MUNDESLEY - The East Norfolk Coast holiday village of Mundesley grew rapidly when the Victorians brought visitors to the district by opening a railway in 1889. They came to Mundesley to sample the finest air in the country. The railway has long gone, but the fresh sea breezes off the North Sea remain as invigorating as ever. Mundesley today is a family holiday resort with a wonderful sandy beach, considered one of the best in Norfolk, with safe swimming for youngsters when the tide is out. The village contains a number of facilities including a small number of shops, eating places, pubs, tea rooms and possibly the smallest Maritime Museum in the country. Mundesley church sits perched overlooking the sea and the coast path is great for walks. Nearby Stow Mills is one of the best windmills in Norfolk and well worth a visit. The nearest general store is within quarter of a mile of the cottage and is opened until 10pm daily, if you want to walk further afield about a mile away there is a Tesco Express, there is also a petrol filling station and a mini bank here. the ship Inn which is about 200 yards from the property does excellent food but booking may be necessary as this is a very popular location, they also serve tea/ coffees during the day and have a play area out back for the children and again the stunning sea views.

HORSEY BEACH- approx 17 miles from Mundesley, there are a number of trips around Norfolk that can be taken to see the Grey Seal colonies, my favourite during the months of November and February has to be Horsey Beach, where a coloney of Grey Seals come on to the beach to breed. The Horsey Coloney is one of the few accessible mainland grey seal breeding sites in the UK. Making it one of the best sites in the world to see the seal pups. This attraction is totally free apart from parking charges and off course the obligatory cup of tea we all have to have on outings. Once parked there is about a 2km walk across level fields to reach the beach, well worth a visit.Get the full listing »
