SIDESTRAND A small coastal village, Sidestrand is an area known locally as Poppyland, so-called for the waves of red flowers that fill the fields during the summer months
The clifftop landscape of fields and rolling countryside is near to Cromer.
With an elegant pier, Pavilion Theatre and grand Victorian villas, many with panoramic views over the pebble and sand beach, it's easy to see why Cromer has perennial appeal to staycationers and permanent residents alike. Banksy recently visited the town on a headline-making 'spraycation' which focused the media's attention on the east side of the Norfolk coast, and in recent years there has been a regular flow of relocaters from the capital and home counties looking for a life by the sea.
This, in turn, has triggered an 'on the up' momentum for the area and seen fabulous start-up businesses breathe new life into the streets surrounding the town centre. Spend a morning exploring the pretty boutiques and follow the lanes towards the seafront to pick up a Cromer crab - widely regarded as one of the best found in English waters, the eight-legged crustacean still provides a major source of income for the town's fishermen and simply served with bread makes an unbeatable lunch or supper!
Or push the boat out with fish and chips from No 1 Cromer, Galton Blackiston's award winning Cromer eatery perched on the clifftop. Treat yourself to a relaxing lunch at the Upstairs Restaurant where stunning sea views meet tasty seafood, or join the queue downstairs and enjoy your takeaway sitting on the wall as the seagulls soar above you for a fully immersive 'beside the seaside' experience. Follow the slope down from the clifftop to the beach and walk the shoreline or practise your hand at an afternoon skimming stones out to the horizon line.
It's easy to see the appeal of this once grand but now gorgeously gentrified town for young families as a place to put down roots. Come discover if it's the place for you too…
