Homefield Guest House makes an ideal relaxing retreat or touring base for North Norfolk, Norwich and the Broads. The coast is perhaps the jewel in Norfolk's crown. There are expansive sandy beaches with award winning blue flag beaches at Cromer and Sheringham. At Holkham and Wells-next-The Sea, pine woods edge the sand dunes; historic harbour villages such as Blakeney, Morston and Brancaster Staithe - with houses of red brick and flint construction - are all waiting to be explored.
The Norfolk Wildlife Trust has reserves for resident and migratory birds at Cley, Hickling and Holme. The Broadland Conservation Centre is at Ranworth.
The seal population at Blakeney Point can be visited by boat from Morston and Blakeney.
We are within a short drive of the Sheringham and Royal Cromer Golf Courses, both set on the cliffs overlooking the sea.
The North Norfolk Steam Railway runs regular trips from the lovely coastal scenery through Weybourne to Holt. The railway was runner-up in the Best Visitor Attraction in the Tourism in Norfolk Awards 2005.
Just through Weybourne is The Muckleborough Collection which is the UK's largest Privately Owned Working Military Museum.
Sandringham House, the country retreat of the Royal Family, is about an hour's drive away and is well worth a visit. A tour of the house is particularly interesting and there is also a museum, visitor centre and acres of beautiful grounds to explore.
Much closer to home (just over mile) is the National Trust's Felbrigg Hall with its lovely house, orangery and lakeside walk. Other attractive National Trust walking can be found at Roman Camp (West Runton) and at Sheringham Park. Within a twenty minute drive is one of the Trust's flagship properties, Blickling Hall.
Horse riding is available from the Shire Horse Centre in our village of West Runton. If you don't ride the Centre is a facinating place to visit with its talks and demonstrations by these magnificent animals.
If you're looking for theatres, try the Pavilion Theatre at the end of Cromer's Victorian Pier, famous for its annual Summer Seaside Special Show, the Little Theatre at Sheringham, the Auden Theatre in Holt or the Theatre Royal in Norwich. If you can get a ticket the Chistmas Spectacular at Thursford is a must.
Norwich (35 minutes to the airport) boasts some of the finest medieval architecture in Britain, with its cathedral, Norman castle, city walls, half-timbered houses and intricate network of winding medieval streets. The impressive cathedral spire dominates a city with an abundance of things to do. Inside the castle is a fascinating museum; the stunning modern architecture of The Forum is home to the Origins attraction and the American Memorial library. The Castle Mall and Chapelfield shopping centres, together with the traditional shopping streets and the extensive street market, make Norwich one of the premier shopping centres in the UK. There is a useful Park and Ride for the City Centre at the airport.
A short drive from Homefield Guest House lies the edge of the Norfolk Broads, Britain's finest inland waterway. The extensive network of rivers and shallow lakes with small waterside villages can be visited by car but its best discovered by boat. Day boats can be hired from one of the many boatyards..
