Norfolk has so much to offer and Happisburgh is well situated on the coastal area of North Norfolk giving easy access to the many attractions and places of interest that are on offer for all ages:
The museum of the Broads at Stalham Staithe is well worth a visit to educate and entertain. Discover the history of the Broads, its people, boats and wildlife. It is a family and dog friendly Norfolk attraction with trails and activities for all ages. Bring a picnic to enjoy by the river and make a day of it. Go to the website.www.museumofthebroads.co.uk
Nearby Potter Heigham gives you the opportunity to shop in a rural Norfolk broads way. Do not forget to feed the ducks and swans (corn seed is better than bread if possible). .
Hickling Broad is only 5 miles - perfect for boating, with rowing boats, small day boats for hire, sailing, wind surfing, fishing and bird watching
Walk from Stiffkey to the pub in Blackeney. Quiet, understated, gently-sloping beaches give way to crumbling cliffs, expansive estuaries, shingle-splits, and Britain's best mudflats
Explore the hundreds of miles of footpaths, bridleways and cycle trails, hugging the coastal marshes, or dive into water sports on the beaches of Great Yarmouth and Cromer.
An abundance of unspoilt beaches and sand dunes along this coastline is a great place to try flying kites or making sand castles.
You may see seals swimming close to the beaches and see them basking on the mud flats at Blakeney, during frequent seal trips approximately 40 miles away but well worth the trip. During the winter, you may see seal pups on the beaches at Winterton-on-sea, but please keep dogs on leads and children under control, the seals are not as cute as the look, as they can bite!
Norfolk's countryside is ideally placed for walking along the many footpaths and the popular Weavers Way. Relax, cycle and bird watching and throughout the year.
Blickling Estate is approximately a 30 minute drive. Nobody ever forget their first sight of Blicking. The breath-taking Jacobean mansion with magnificent gardens and historic park lands. www.nationaltrust.org.uk/blickling-estate
