Corpusty is our November hidden gem.
The pretty village of Corpusty lies in the picturesque rolling Norfolk countryside, 13 miles from Cromer and 12 miles from Blakeney. Corpusty and its sister village Saxthorpe are connected by the River Bure and are set in the wonderful Bure Valley, with delightful country lanes for cycling and walking. Corpusty has a real community spirit and is a wonderful location for a relaxing, escape-from-it-all getaway to the Norfolk countryside.
Corpusty offers all the necessary creature comforts you will need for a well-deserved Norfolk break. The village is complete with a village shop with post office, a traditional public house serving real ales and good food and a wonderful village green with children’s play area. Whether you are travelling with family or enjoying a romantic retreat with a loved one, Corpusty is a wonderful destination.
However, if you wanted to travel a little further afield, there is an array of fantastic locations to explore close by. The elegant Georgian town of Holt is just seven miles away and offers a range of fantastic cafes, pubs, boutique shopping and art galleries (we have an office here, too!). The breath-taking Blickling Estate is only five miles away, an iconic Jacobean mansion surrounded by a magnificent garden. The vibrant city of Norwich is only 17 miles south-east of Corpusty, a city of culture with an unrivalled collection of heritage landmarks and an unmissable shopping and food and drink scene. Along the north Norfolk coast, you will discover idyllic coastal villages, salt marshes and nature reserves, where you can walk for miles. Corpusty is situated in a magnificent location to explore everything Norfolk has to offer.
