Just 5 miles to the north of Sedgeford Hall, Hunstanton has all the seaside attributes for a traditional seaside holiday. Along the coast there are many delightful fishing villages including nearby Brancaster Staithe and Wells-next-the-Sea and, further on, popular Sheringham and Cromer, renowned for their fresh crabs and shellfish. Houghton Hall, built in the 1720s, is one of England’s grandest surviving Palladian houses with an impressive model soldier collection. Sandringham House, bought by Queen Victoria for her son Edward, has become famous as the Christmas residence of the Royals. Visitors enjoy public access to the house, gardens, museum and park. For walkers, the 4-mile stroll to Great Bircham is rewarded by its striking windmill perched on top of a hill, and the Peddars Way and Icknield Way are also close by.
