Around Saracens Head


The Saracen’s Head is in the middle of nowhere (often referred to as lost in North Norfolk) whilst being the centre of everywhere! Ideally positioned for those that are looking for a base from where they can discover what this beautiful part of East Anglia has to offer.

Norfolks curving coastline means that from Wolterton you are only about 40 minutes drive from every type of beach you could wish for! Cliffs, Sand Dunes, Pebbles, Freshers or just miles of unspoilt sand. From Cromer, to Sea Palling, from Blakeney and Cley to Wells and Holkham.

Wolterton Hall is just one of our great halls in the area. Mannington the home of the Walpole family has the most lovely gardens and then there are the National Trust properties at Blickling and Felbrigg just up the road. A little further to the west are Holkham, Houghton and of course Sandringham.

The Norfolk Broads are fun to discover either by boat, from Wroxham you can hire a day boat and chug along the Bure and find the hidden away broads and their little villages, or by car, if you want a little more independence.

Norfolk with its miles of unspoilt countryside is of course a haven for wildlife be it on the farms, or deer running wild from the broads and throughout the county. For the birdwatchers then there are so many special places to visit and to see those illusive visitors! From Horsey to Salthouse and from The Broads to Blakeney Point you will be spoilt for choice. If you are new to Birdwatching why not start at Pensthorpe (the home of 'Springwatch' for the last two years) where you will be able to see so many different birds and animals.

Norwich is a fine city and boasts two Cathedrals and a castle. Like the rest of Norfolk it was famous for having so many churches, in fact at one stage there were 52, one for every Sunday. If churches are not your thing then the fact that it also had a pub for every day of the year may interest you a little more! Unfortunately neither of these facts is still true! The City is well worth a visit, whether it is to the Sainsbury Centre at the UEA or just to go shopping!
