- East Anglia..
Beautiful beaches on the north Norfolk coast with world famous areas for bird/wildlife. Along the main coast road you will find lots of interesting places to have a look around with many pubs serving great local food which are dog friendly. Norwich is well worth a day out, the Castle Museum often has art exhibitions and other things of interest and there is always the Broads nearby. As has already been said, it’s quite a large area, not a problem if you enjoy driving around. Tell us what you enjoy and I can be more specific.Posted 3 years ago
Based nr Thetford, but happy to travel about, beaches seems our most likely destination with they dawg.Posted 3 years ago
It’s a break to relax, so dog walking, eating out & though abandoning the creature to go see interesting stuff (we like castles?) is always an option (for a few hours)
There is Castle Rising near King’s Lynn and the town itself, has much historical interest with some beautiful Tudor and Georgan buildings and a museum about the history of the fishing industry and the port which I believe to be one the country’s most important at one time. It would be easy to spend a whole day there, about 45 minutes drive from Thetford.Posted 3 years ago
If you were taking the bike, I would have recommended a ride around Shouldham Warren and then food and drink at the King’s Arms. Great pub, community run serving superb locally sourced food, beers and cider. The Hare Arms also in the same area at Stow Bardolph has always had a good reputation. Both pubs would be on your way back from King’s Lynn towards Thetford. The wife has reminded me that Biltons on the A10 at Tottenhill, recently opened and has quickly built a good rep locally, not been so can’t give you a true review of the food. Another is The Berney Arms in Barton Bendish but I believe it has recently changed hands.Posted 3 years ago
Waitrose on SeaSouthwold is worth a look if you like pseudo hipster Islington version of a seaside town. It’s quite nice actually, and there is beer.
Actually, all the way round from Hunstanton to Orford, there are miles of fantastic beaches, most of them either dog friendly or with a doggy friendly bit off to the side. Great Yarmouth and Cromer can be fun in a Kiss me Quick hat way. The Broads are worth a boat trip. I think the highlight, if you have a day or two spare is the Mundesley Maritime Museum.Posted 3 years agoSandwichSubscriber
Warning, some of the North Norfolk eating establishments don’t try too hard. The place is usually at least 85% occupied in holiday time and as a result there can be a suggestion of entitlement from “mine host”.
If you’re in Orford then Pump Street bakery andPosted 3 years ago
gorge ontaste the Butter Pies with coffee. (Shut Tuesdays, boo, so I missed out today). They have an outpost at Snape Maltings around the corner (The Pantry). The Eccles cakes are rather good too with no air gap under the pastry.
