Well, to be perfectly honest, we're not tour guides and we don't know the area that well. We bought the caravan on a whim, after visiting the Norfolk Broads and ending up at the coast. As we stood on the beach it started snowing and we thought how nice it would be to own one of the nearby caravans, just a few yards away from us. And that's how we ended up buying a caravan.

Despite visiting several times over the past couple of years, we are still amazed by how much this area has to offer, and how much more there is to discover. Whether you enjoy walking, sailing, canoeing, fishing (directly on the beach), cycling, wildlife, photography, painting, the thrills of a seaside town, or just watching the world go by, there is something to suit everyone. Below is a list of just some of the places of interest we've visited or hope to visit in the coming months. If you need more info just follow the links or Google it.
