Things To Do

 Mundesley is the perfect base for exploring Norfolk. There really is something for everyone.

The beach in Mundesley is the perfect starting point. It has been awarded/recommended by both MCS (Marine Conservation Society) and the Blue Flag scheme for 2014. The sandy beach is clean and during high season there is a lifeguard station.

Cycling &
Norfolk is ideal for both cycling and walking as the land is reasonably flat.
The pioneering Quiet Lanes network was first introduced in north norfolk. It has 36 miles of minor rural roads where walking and cycling are safer than your usual A or B road. The Quiet Lanes area covers Cromer, Bacton & North Walsham. Click here for the Quiet Lanes network.
Also worth a visit is the excellent Visit Norfolk website which really is must for exploring Norfolk. Click here to take you to their website.

Cromer is the nearest 'big' town which is worth a visit anyway however, Norwich is only 30 minutes drive away where you will find all the usual hight street stores.

Adventure Parks & Zoos
Bewilderwood is 17 miles south of Mundesley and is a great day out for the family. Blurb from their website: 'BeWILDerwood' by local children's author Tom Blofeld, is a wonderful, mystical land of brave, adventurous creatures who you may never see anywhere else in our world. Parents are encouraged to play alongside their children, which makes for a fabulous and brilliantly exciting day out for the whole family!' Click here for Bewilderwood website.

Further afield is Dinosaur Adventure which is in Lenwade, approximately 26 miles from the chalet. Worth the drive though. Their website is here.

Banham Zoo is approximately 1 hour and 20 minues from the chalet but is day out not to be missed. Click here for their website.

A little closer to home is Amazona Zoo which is only 8 miles from the chalet. Smaller than Banham but still worth a visit. Click here for Amazona Zoo.

Visit the seals on Horsey beach
If you want to see a herd of seals for free then take a walk along the beach at Horsey and you will see a sizeable herd both in and out of the water.
Drive to Sea Palling via Bacton, Walcott and Stalham. Continue through the village and drive past the Bridge House Holidays sign on your right, past Walnut Farm on your left, past Waxham Sands Holiday Park on your left, then just past The Old Chapel Guest House there is a sharp right BUT you will need to turn left here (if you come accross the windmill you have missed the turning so back track or grab an ice cream at the windmill Smilethen back track), up a single dirt track, where eventually you come to a car park (which is now a pay and display!). Walk up the sand dune and once you are on the beautiful sandy beach turn right and start walking. It is approxiamtely a 1 mile walk to the seals but keep watching the water as you usually see them bobbing up and down, almost as if they are keeping an eye on you.

The Broads
