Roydon is a friendly, rural village close to the Sandringham Estate, just 10 minutes' drive from the medieval town of King's Lynn and 15 minutes from the north Norfolk coast (area of outstanding natural beauty) with fabulous, unspoilt beaches. Roydon Common is a national nature reserve and international site of special scientific interest - a haven for wildlife enthusiasts, walkers and birdwatchers, along with the reserves at Snettisham (with its famous flights of pink-footed geese) and Titchwell close by.
Whether you come for country walks, the stunning coastlne, Norfolk flint-built villages, excellent pubs, chic shops, historic buildings or to see the Royals at Sandringham in January, you won't be disappointed!
