Self-catering holiday rentals in Norfolk for your home stay
The county of Norfolk is one of England's great beauty secrets, as you'll find on your self-catering vacation lettings. It's tucked away in the east of England, and this means its beautiful countryside is largely untouched by large motorways. You will find, just a short drive from your holiday lettings in your short break in Norfolk, beautiful country lanes that are everybody's idea of what the countryside of England should look like. And what better day out during the summer holidays than a leisurely lunch at a typical pub, frequented by locals, and featuring the local ale. Just make sure you get someone else to do the driving on the way home to your holiday rentals. The north Norfolk coastline is particularly famous. The long beaches in the area around Holkham, for example, feature sand as far as you can see, completely unspoilt by any development and an easy and scenic drive from your holiday rentals on your short break in Norfolk. The small village of Wells-next-the-Sea for instance is an ancient fishing port, with fascinating walks along the sands. You will also find there fine dining in traditional public houses that use only the best of local produce worked into dishes produced by great chefs. Or perhaps just take a stroll through the village and buy some local fish or other produce to take back to your self-catering holiday lettings in Norfolk and enjoy the best this beautiful county has to offer. There is so much history to enjoy in this extraordinary place. The county town of Norwich was founded a thousand years ago. Its great cathedral was finished in 1145 and is famous throughout Britain. There is a museum in Norfolk castle which is the ideal family or group outing before returning to your holiday lettings. And of course Norwich has become well-known these days for its restaurants which offer the very finest in local cuisine, so you can enjoy a great meal here too. You might like to take a drive to the town of Great Yarmouth, which likes to boast that it is even older than Norwich. Take yourself there for the day and you will find its history around every corner. What could be better?
