The village has a friendly local pub within a short walk of the cottage. Creake Abbey, renowned for its restaurant, farmers’ market and craft fairs, is under half a mile away. There is a huge network of excellent footpaths on the doorstep for dog-walkers. There are some great pubs and eateries nearby, including the Duck in Stanhoe and the Black Lion in Walsingham. The cottage has a pair of resident tawny owls and swifts nest in the roof in the summer months, which is increasingly rare around here. The cottage is 2 miles from Burnham Market and within 5 miles of Burnham Overy Staithe, Holkham, Wells and Brancaster beaches which, if you do not already know them, are well worth googling as they are amazing.
There is a bus that runs through the village, from Fakenham to Burnham Market and on to the coast, where you can connect with the Coast Hopper service. In all honesty, a car is absolutely essential for freedom to explore the coast properly.
