Hempstead is a small, sleepy and pretty village just two miles from the picturesque Georgian market town of Holt which has a large selection of quality shops, galleries, restaurants and cafes. The ruins of Baconsthorpe Castle can be found in the adjoining village, you can also walk to Selbrigg Lake where the River Glaven rises.
Surrounded by the rolling countryside of the Holt ridge, it is an ideal place to explore and is great for cycling, walking and birdwatching. The coast is only five miles away and the choice is quite diverse from the sandy beaches & family friendly seaside towns of Cromer and Sheringham to the shingle of Salthouse and the marshes attracting birdwatchers at Blakeney and Cley.
Nearby attractions include Pensthorpe Wildlife Gardens, Amazona Zoo, The Muckleborough collection and Langham Glass ensuring there is something for all ages to enjoy.
Whilst staying in the area we would highly recommend taking one of the boat trips from nearby Morston or Blakeney to see the seals, on some of the tours they land the boat on the sandy stretch for you to get out a explore the area further and is a magical experience for all ages.
At nearby Thursford, although hugely famous for its spectacular Christmas show, the collection is actually open all year round and home to the world’s largest collection of steam engines and organs, along with a ride on carousel, play park, selection of shops and café/restaurant for you to enjoy.
