Beauty and the Beach

The final day of our holiday in North Norfolk and we returned to Holkham, but this time we went for a walk along the beautiful beach there.  I was told by a lady I met at one of the Zumba classes I took locally, that the beach here was very beautiful, had been used as a location for various films and was definitely worth a visit. 

We parked up and walked onto the beach via a wooden walkway.  The tide here didn't seem quite so far out as it was nearer Hunstanton and the sand was a beautiful white colour around the sand dunes.  The backdrop to the sand dunes and beach was a beautiful pine forest.  It was certainly very idyllic and probably one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever been on in the UK thus far.  I'm so pleased that we made the effort to visit it.  Stupidly, I didn't take any photographs, but Google images has some wonderful pictures of this beach if anyone is interested.

Following a lovely walk on the beach, we retired to a pub called The Duck in Stanhope for lunch.  The food was fabulous.  It was our one big treat on our holiday and definitely worth it.  The afternoon was then spent tidying the beach hut and retrieving our belongings therefrom, before we leave tomorrow morning and head back to London.  

Later, we walked the dog once again on the beach below the cliffs at Hunstanton, searching for fossils with the wind blowing in our hair.  It was a lovely end to our holiday.  We've really enjoyed our stay here in North Norfolk and I know we'll be back.  It was especially dog friendly on the beaches and in many of the pubs and shops we visited, which is very important to us, our dog being a very special member of the family.  I would definitely recommend it to anyone as a great place to stay.
