Our Week on the North Norfolk Coast

Our Week on the North Norfolk Coast

A few weeks ago we ran away from January and spent some time on the North Norfolk coast. We stopped in a converted coastguard hut on the top of a cliff in Mundesley (thanks to a lucky prize draw win with Rose and Grey Interiors and HolidayCottages.co.uk) and had a whole week of sea views, lonesome beach adventures and approximately 11 billion portions of chip-shop chips. 

Some of our highlights:

And endless dunes and falling rocks on the beach in Old Hunstanton to round-up our week.

Even if you live by the sea we don't think it's possible to tire of hearing it lap and lick at the beach, much in the same way that we never bore of the vista that welcomes our turn around Surprise view or the way the hills seem to engulf us as we negotiate our Polo up Winnats Pass (we'll share those soon - it's a Peak District thing!) 

The best thing about nature is that it's never boring. It never stops moving/changing and it's always offering us something different and for that we are very thankful. Also, we will now always enter ourselves into prize draws.
