The Historic Appeal Of Fakenham

The largest town in North Norfolk, Fakenham is not far from the North Sea coast of England, and is surrounded by the exquisitely beautiful countryside of the valley of the River Wensum. The town can trace its history back to the Domesday Book, and is full of delightful flint and brick faced buildings, winding sidestreets and narrow alleyways, all possessed of a quaint old world charm. Fakenham has been a market town since 1250, and a market is still carried on each Thursday in the charming marketplace which can trace its medieval origins. A farmer's market also takes place here each month, where you can find superb natural produce. The proximity to the North Norfolk coast means you can be in that coastal region of lovely uncrowded beaches, salt marshes and pine forests within ten minutes.

Self Catering Holiday Lets In Fakenham

The rural character of Fakenham and its surrounding area means that you can find some high quality self catering cottages and converted barns in the area for your accommodation on your summer holidays. You could rent a converted barn on a family owned farm with a private, walled garden, wood burning fires and plenty of space. Or perhaps you might prefer a newly refurbished cottage which has maintained its traditional style, or a self catering converted barn with a garden and patio area, BBQ and garden furniture should you fancy a bit of alfresco dining on your family holiday. You might opt for a self catering cottage commanding views of an Anglo Saxon church and the River Wensum, which flows through an adjacent meadow. This ideal family holidays accommodation boasts a private indoor swimming pool, a small lake and river fishing facilities. There's also a couple of gardens providing plenty of space for the children to play in.

Attractions In Fakenham

Fakenham parish church dominates the town's skyline. This is mostly 14th century, but has sections dating back to the Saxons. The Museum of Gas and Local History is housed in the only town gasworks still extant in England and Wales. The buildings still retain the equipment which was used in manufacturing gas from coal, such as purifiers, condensers, retorts, meter and gasholders. This Scheduled Ancient Monument provides a vivid insight into Fakenham's heritage. Near to the town is the Pensthorpe Nature Reserve, where the B.B.C. TV series Springwatch has been filmed. This beautiful location in the lush Wensum Valley has nature trails and woodland walks and provides a great day out for all the family. Should you feel like a change of pace, why not enjoy a bet on the horses at the famous Fakenham Racecourse?
