Mundesley is one of the larger villages in the area.   A quaint seaside resort, with a very relaxing, unassuming air.

Not too far from Cromer, it became popular in Victorian times when the town boasted its own railway station which is sadly no more. But it did leave the village with some wonderful Victorian architecture.  Look out for the Manor Hotel and plenty of lovely parks.   Open spaces such as The Lees which overlook the beach and are just the spot for a picnic.  Also, here you will find the Mundesley Museum, believed to be one of the smallest in Britain.

The Blue Flag beach is easily accessible and there are colourful beach huts to rent. Also, a great cafe, where fish and chips are surely a must.

The village has several cafes and pubs, with the Ship Inn offering good views out to sea from its great beer garden alongside local, seasonal food.

There are several independent shops including a butcher, deli, fishmonger plus that vital post office. 

Children enjoy the crazy golf, skate park, amusement arcades and ice cream parlours.  Many of the shops sell those beach essentials – buckets and spades, body boards and more. Various water sports are available in season, and the village’s golf club is very popular.

Just south of Mundesley is Happisburgh, well known for its red and white banded lighthouse which you can visit. In true Norfolk fashion, you actually pronounce it as Haze–bruh!

The village has a strong community spirit, a great school, a new village shop with lots of local produce and a pub, The Hill House. Offering very good real ale choices thanks to its own microbrewery.

The beach is stunning and is perfect for dog walkers who can stride out to Smallsticks cafe at Cart Gap to enjoy an all-day breakfast.

The beach continues to Sea Palling, another great family-friendly resort with a beautiful beach and safe swimming for children.  Additionally,  a wide range of water sports are on offer in the good weather.

There is a good selection of cafes and fish and chip shops, with Reefs Bar as the central point.  plus, amusement arcades and very good freshly made doughnuts.

There are also essentials like a village shop and post office. 

The Great Barn at next door Waxham is well worth a visit, especially if Dunes Cafe is open.
