Being only a few minutes away is the magnificent golf links at Old Hunstanton. The area is listed as one of Outstanding Natural Beauty with its haven of wildlife, places of interest plus the start of the ancient Peddars Way footpath taking a straight course to Thetford which is still accessible, and well worth a visit for exploring the local countryside.
