The small village of Holme-next-the-Sea sits on the beautiful North Norfolk Coast and is at the northern end of Peddars Way. There are two separate beaches, one directly at the end of the beach road and one further east which runs alongside the Holme Dunes Nature Reserve. The wide sandy beach is where “Seahenge” was discovered in 1998 - the 4000 year old 55 oak timber posts are now in a museum in Kings Lynn.
The Holme Dunes Nature Reserve provides a number of extremely pleasant walks through the varied habitats of the reserve including a Corsican Pine. Plus the well-known Titchewell RSPB Reserve is just 4 miles away – which has something for everyone. A walk from the visitor centre here, down to the sandy beach takes you past reedbeds and shallow lagoons, which are often full of birds and you, are able to enjoy the magnificent sights from benches or watch from spacious, wheelchair accessible hides.
The seaside town of Hunstanton, with its promenade, fairground rides, oasis swimming pool and Sealife centre makes it a popular location for families.
Burnham Market and Brancaster are all within a very short distance, plus the village is an ideal base for exploring the many variety of beaches found along this part of Norfolk’s coastline.
There are plenty of options to eat out in this area, actually in Holme-next-the-Sea you will find The White Horse, a real family & dog friendly pub with an excellent beer garden to enjoy summer evenings in.
