The Norfolk Countryside around Binham
Rose Cottage is an idea place from which to explore the local area, with the pretty villages and towns of the Glaven Valley, and the joys of the North Norfolk Coast, its beaches and wildlife, all within easy reach.
Choose between Sheringham Park, Holkham Hall, Felbrigg Hall, Cley-next-the-Sea, Salthouse, and seal trips to Blakeney Point.
It is a short drive from Rose Cottage to the fantastic Wells-next-the-Sea high street with its tea rooms, fish and chips, crabbing on the quay, and the stunning beach with colourful beach huts. The wonderful Georgian town of Holt is just a few miles away, as is Pensthorpe Bird Reserve, and Thursford Museum.
In the village of Binham itself, it is just a 200yard stroll from the cottage across the Green to our friendly Howells village shop with fresh bread, groceries, and daily papers. Howells stock a good range of local produce including locally produced cheese, honey and locally baked bread. Just a step further to the Chequers Pub with its good food and ale. Continue another 200 yards and you will find Binham Priory, described by English Heritage as “among the most complete and impressive monastic ruins in Norfolk”, where you can enjoy concerts and events like the much-loved annual Easter Egg Hunt in the Priory grounds.
It is an easy cycle ride from the cottage to the coast. Or drive the short distance to the coast, leave your car and use the wonderful Coasthopper bus (which runs every half hour in the summer season) to take you to your favourite place on the Norfolk Coast Walk. Some of our guests like to hire bikes at Holkham and cycle to Wells High Street and Wells Beach.
