Felbrigg Hall, North Norfolk

See & Do

  • Felbrigg lake is only a 15 minute walk along the Weaver’s Way. A further 15 minutes on brings you to Felbrigg Hall, a National Trust owned Stuart house with an orangery, walled garden, walks and magnificent woods. You can enjoy lunch or tea in the old stables, a tour inside the hall, listen to open air opera or attend one of the many events regularly held there.
  • Sustead Church and Weavers Way, NorfolkThe Weaver’s Way. This long distance path from Cromer to Yarmouth passes through Common Farm and runs alongside the meadow.
  • For bird watchers the salt marshes between Salthouse - 25 minutes by car - and Stiffkey are very rewarding. There are several bird hides along the coast and a boat trip to Blakeney Point to see the birds, seals and wonderful scenery is recommended.

  • 10 minutes by car gets you to the nearest sandy beach at West Runton from where you can walk to Cromer - 25 minutes - and reward yourself with a cup of tea at the end of the pier. On the way back you will be following in the footsteps of the 4 metre high mammoth which was dug up in 1995 after it died here 600,000 years ago. In August the Red Arrows perform over the pier, and there is a fantastic firework display on New Year’s day.
  • The North Norfolk Steam Railway is 10 minutes away by car and makes its picture postcard way from Sheringham to Holt.
