The Area

Binham is a very small, very pretty North Norfolk village not far from the coast. Antwis Cottage is a short stroll from Binham Priory with its impressive monastic ruins, a café and tea room, The Parlour, and a traditional pub The Chequers Inn, which serves delicious home cooked food and local beverages.

Further afield there's plenty to see and do, from beaches and boat trips to historical homes and wondrous wildlife. Combined with fantastic food and stunning scenery, a holiday in North Norfolk is an absolute must!

Wells is 5 miles away with its colourful beach huts, gorgeous sandy beach and pinewoods. Children love to catch crabs with a line off the quay wall, where you can also enjoy the town's famous fish & chips. Don't miss the traditional summer carnival.
Along the coast from Wells is Holkham, where the vast open beach is part of the Holkham National Nature Reserve. The spectacular Holkham Hall complete with deer park, lake and woodland, offers a host of family friendly attractions & events.
Food & Drink
There are wonderful restaurants, cafés and gastro-pubs in the area serving food locally reared and freshly caught. Fabulous fish & chips can be found all along the coast. The delis in Cley and Blakeney and the farm shop in Walsingham are perfect for picnickers.
Blakeney Point
Take a boat trip at beautiful Blakeney to view the seal colonies and migrating birds at Blakeney Point. If you like bird watching you'll love Cley Marshes Visitors Centre, the Norfolk Wildlife Trust's best known nature reserve at Cley next the Sea.
Stiffkey Saltmarshes
Stiffkey Saltmarshes, 3 miles away, is part of the Blakeney National Nature Reserve. This vast expanse of saltmarsh is a haven for wildlife where you can enjoy beautiful walks. Why not park your car at Stiffkey, take the Coasthopper bus and explore the coast.
Great shopping from independent and stylish shops can be found in Holt and Burnham Market. The Farmers' Markets in Fakenham and Creake Abbey sell fresh Norfolk produce and are well worth a visit. Fakenham also holds a regular Thursday market.
