The dovecot and pond in the garden at Felbrigg

Felbrigg Hall 

The hall contains much of its original collection, and reflects the people who shaped it. Set in extensive parkland, with a working walled garden, orangery, lake and miles of estate walks just waiting to be explored.

View over the Norfolk Coast

Sheringham Park 

Wander through Sheringham Park and you'll soon realise why this place became the personal favourite of its designer, Humphry Repton. Climb a viewing tower for breathtaking views above the tree-tops and out to sea.

A dog walker on Incleborough Hill

West Runton 

This is the perfect place for a breezy walk up and down the hills of north Norfolk. Whatever the weather your walk will be rewarding.
