Published: 14/01/2022The only thing blue in Norfolk is our wide open skies!
It may be Blue Monday - but when you have Norfolk as your playground there's plenty to help blow away the January cobwebs.
With its wide blue skies, far-reaching golden beaches, and beautiful countryside, Norfolk offers so many reasons to get outside and breath some fresh air.
Sowerbys shares some ideas of how to make the most of a winter’s day in our wonderful county.
Lots of lovely walks and footpaths
There are many idyllic walks to enjoy in Norfolk with its many footpaths, including the renowned Coastal Path.
Running 84 miles from Hunstanton to Hopton-on-Sea through delightful scenery and landscape, you can experience seaside towns and villages, tidal marshes, sandy beaches and pine woodlands along your way.
If you’re stuck for ideas, see our blog with nine different walks across Norfolk to give you some inspiration.
Head to the sea
We’re very lucky to have an incredible 90 miles of breath-taking coastline within easy reach and we should be taking advantage of this all year round.
Wrap up warm and make your way to the coast!
From the large sandy beaches to the tidal creeks, salt marshes and shingled shores, there’s such a variety for you to experience.
An abundance of wildlife
Another wonderful aspect of living in Norfolk is the fantastic array of wildlife right on our doorstep and there are many places you can visit to experience it.
From the seals at Blakeney Point to the deers at Snettisham Park, an abundance of migratory birds, several nature reserves, zoos, and the safari park at Watlington, we really are spoilt for choice.
An array of outside spaces and stunning architecture
There’s nothing our Norfolk Property Specialists love more than historic architecture and luckily the county has plenty to offer!
With its many beautiful, wide outside spaces across the county, such as the many National Trust sites and stunning estates, there’s no reason to stay indoors.
From the magnificent stately home Holkham Hall to the queen’s much loved country retreat Sandringham Estate, there’s plenty of exploring to do.
Independent retail therapy
If you want to escape the cold then perhaps a spot of retail therapy could be exactly what you need.
Norfolk is well known for being the home of independents, allowing you to shop small and local wherever you go.
From the Norwich Lanes and famous market in the heart of the city centre, to the eclectic range of independent shops in the Georgian market town of Holt and the boutique shops in Burnham Market, you’ll be spoilt for choice!
