Gone Cockling description


With its first floor living room, balcony and comfortable furnishings, this spacious property is a delightful holiday retreat. It has its own large fenced garden, which leads directly onto the sea wall and a sandy beach. The balcony faces west and the sunset across the Wash can be watched. There is excellent bird-watching, cycling and seaside walks, and for golfing enthusiasts, there is a golf course to the rear of Gone Cockling itself. Bird-watchers can enjoy a variety of species to be found at Titchwell Marsh and other RSPB reserves around the coast, as well as those feeding on the sea shore, which can be admired from the balcony. The property is accessed via an unmade road (deterring through traffic).
A walk along the sea wall is Hunstanton, which provides all the usual attractions associated with a traditional Victorian seaside resort, including a small fun fair, indoor swimming-pool, and Sea Life Centre, sandy beaches (some of the cleanest in Norfolk) and rock pools. Close by is Caley Mill, home of Norfolk Lavender, covering some 100 acres transformed in summer to a haze of purple. Trips are possible to watch the harvesting of the flowers. There is a large gift shop featuring lavender items and a restaurant. Notable attractions abound in the area - the Queen’s country estate, Sandringham House and gardens (open when the Queen is not in residence) with the estate shop, restaurant and extensive walks; the Palladium mansions of Houghton Hall and Holkham Hall and fine Norman ruins at Castle Rising and Castle Acre. The historic town of King’s Lynn offers a wealth of ancient buildings to explore, including the splendid Custom House, the 14th-century Trinity Guildhall and the medieval warehouses along the quayside. Nearby Snettisham has a children’s animal farm with tractor rides to see the deer herd and an adventure playground. Bircham Windmill, an excellent example of a restored working windmill has a tea shop and small play area.
For a picturesque detour, Burnham Market boasts a collection of Georgian Houses clustered around a pretty green, and the birthplace of Horatio Nelson can be found at Burnham Thorpe. A small exhibition in All Saints Parish Church pays tribute to his life and a lectern made from the timbers of the Victory. Shops 1 mile.
