    The fabulous beach at Wells, park near to Pinewoods Holiday park.

    It can be a bit stodgy in the middle of the course so do be careful where you park up !

    You're not too far from Sandringham there and lovely beach walk at Old Hunstanton with dog friendly cafe and pub if you have one.

    You are also very near the Thursford collection but it may be shut during the winter. Take a trip up to Holt, a lovely little town.

    And at Holt you have the Poppyline railway to Sheringham.

    Holkham Hall not open till 20th March, N N Railway I think starts Feburary half term.
    As Larby says the walks at Wells are lovely. We also enjoy Hunstanton where they have car park with dedicated motorhome parking.

    The hall was very briefly a work house apparently ( according to our guide of the day :) )
