Families at Wood Farm
Norfolk makes the perfect family break. Whether it’s beach huts at Wells, crabbing on the quay at Blakeney or buckets & spades on Cromer beach, we have it all. Miles of empty sands, family friendly cafés and picnic spots galore. At Wells you can hire a bike and cycle into beautiful Holkham Park, along peaceful estate paths and back through the pines fringing Holkham beach.
Learn to surf or paddle board at Cromer with the Glide Surf School or learn to sail with Norfolk etc in Morston. If you prefer others to take the helm, consider the famous boat trips out to Blakeney Point to visit the thriving seal colony.
Closer to home are two lovely houses, Wolterton Hall and Mannington Hall, both owned by the Walpole family, both with lovely walks. The Greedy Goose tearoom at Mannington offers light lunches and teas, or try the nearby Walpole Arms at Itteringham.
Steam railway (and Thomas the Tank Engine) enthusiasts will enjoy the Poppy Line from Holt to Sheringham or the smaller Bure Valley Railway at nearby Aylsham, along with the Wells to Walsingham Narrow Gauge. There’s even a tiny train running from Wells town down to the beach. Have look at Weybourne station webcam for sightings of the Poppy Line trains!
Norfolk is lovely riding country and we are lucky to have local stables for those keen to spend some time on horseback. Squirrelwood Equestrian at Weybourne will take you out through woods and rolling countryside or give lessons in their arena.
