“With a stunning location on the north Norfolk coast and at the heart of a thriving 25,000 acre estate, Holkham Hall is described as an exceptional place, rich in history, architecture and wildlife. The seat of the Earls of Leicester, this elegant 18th century mansion is still very much a lived-in family home which the family take pride in sharing with visitors. The hall is an elegant 18th century Palladian style house, based on designs by William Kent and built by Thomas Coke, 1st Earl of Leicester. The Marble Hall is a spectacular introduction to this imposing building, with its 50ft pressed plaster dome ceiling and walls of English alabaster, not marble as its name implies. Stairs lead to magnificent state rooms displaying superb collections of ancient statuary, original furniture, tapestries and paintings by Rubens, Van Dyck, Claude, Gaspar Poussin and Gainsborough.”
“Stunning National Trust property; gardens are dog friendly (next to Bedingfeld Arms) ”
“Head east along the coast from Heacham, and you'll find Brancaster. The beach is stunning with miles of golden sand and is great for dog walking. These miles of flat sands are also ideal for kite surfing (in designated areas). Nearby are the tidal salt marshes of Scolt Head. When the tide is out you can see an old shipwreck, the remains of SS Vina which was used by the RAF for target practice before the Normandy landing.”
“Norfolk's leading marine rescue centre, the seal hospital is busy all year round caring for sick and injured seal pups until, whenever possible, they are well enough to be returned to the wild.”
