A popular destination come holiday or home
It’s easy to see why Old Hunstanton is so popular with holidaymakers and full time residents alike. Home to some of the finest properties in the county, there’s a wonderful mix of charming cottages, converted barns, and cool, contemporary homes.
Stroll along the top of the famous striped cliffs to take in the lighthouse and the ruins of St Edmunds chapel, built in the 13th century in memory of St Edmund who landed here in 855 to be crowned King of East Anglia.
Perhaps set off for a walk along the coastal path, and at the end of the day save your tired legs by getting the regular Coasthopper bus home.
Golfers are spoilt for choice, with the fantastic links course at Hunstanton Golf Club in the village, and Royal West Norfolk Golf Club’s championship course just a few miles away at Brancaster.
After a busy day, relax at The Lodge or the Ancient Mariner, the two great pubs within the village, or treat yourself at Michelin starred The Neptune. For daily provisions there’s an excellent village store and there’s also a craft centre, wonderful for browsing.
Just the other side of the pine trees, dunes and beach huts you’ll find the beautiful beach where days are spent playing on the golden sands and evenings are lit by incredible sunsets over the sea.
