The East Anglia region
Norfolk is a popular tourist destination and has many holiday attractions including some of the finest British beaches, such as those at Great Yarmouth, Waxham, Cromer and Holkham bay. Norfolk is probably best known for the Broads and other areas of outstanding natural beauty. Many areas of the coast are wild bird sanctuaries and reserves.
Throughout the year tourists and locals enjoy the wide variety of monuments and historical buildings in both Norfolk and the city of Norwich.
North Walsham is a busy, North Norfolk market town. Flemish weavers came and settled in North Walsham in the 13th and 14th centuries, helping it become the heart of the woolen and weaving industry. This brought prosperity to the town, leading to the construction of the fabulous church of St. Nicholas.
In the early 18th century, the church was given a soaring tower, its height only exceeded by Norwich cathedral. However, in 1724, the rather heavy set of bells were rung for a lengthy period and the following day two sides of the steeple collapsed.
The market cross sits in the centre of the market place and was built to collect the rent for the market stalls. Today, the town has a wide-range of shops, refreshments and places to stay. It also has a modern leisure centre (with swimming pool).
Its close proximity to both the Norfolk Coast and Norfolk Broads makes North Walsham a good base for a holiday. Nearby Bacton Woods was bought by the Forestry Commission in the 1950's and there has been a wood here since Saxon times, partly because the soil is poor quality and not suitable for farming. The woods are great for a woodland walk or for mountain biking.

"A quiet and comfortable retreat"
Lovely to arrive to a welcome pack including tea and coffee making stuff, milk in fridge. Janet and Roger made us really welcome and were very helpful throughout our stay. The annexe was warm and more spacious than it looked on the internet. We were very comfortable and cosy. North Walsham is a small market town with all facilities - Papworths butchers, Sainsbury, Waitrose, Lidl, banks within 5-10mins walk. Good local market on Thursday.Well located for varied days out, quiet sandy beaches at Happisburgh, cliff/beach walk from Overstrand (cafe)to Cromer (pier, prom, museum, cinema, Rocket House for lunch) and Wroxham and the Broads. Norwich, using Park and Ride or train, is full of museums and historic buildings to wander past. Sheringham Park and Felbrigg Hall (NT) have good walks.We had plenty of time to explore but not the best weather. There are lots of quiet roads/lanes for biking to Aylsham, Stalham etc in better weather. We were looking for a quiet retreat and that's what we got!
