“Perfect In Every Way”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

I've been on plenty of beaches in the UK and this one is by far the best I've been on outside of some of the beautiful beaches in Cornwall. Lovely flat sand perfect for my little girl who has mobility difficulties and lots of room for the usual beach fun. Will definitely go back to Holkham beach and Nature reserve. Oh, almost forgot, there's a boarded walkway providing disabled access and you can get a wheelchair well onto the beach due to a strip of firm flat sand doen the center. Lovely for a picnic.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

Whatever the time of year this place is beautiful. Not too crowded and and ideal place to blow away the cob webs and get rid of the winter blues...dog friendly too....wrap up warm and enjoy a brisk walk...resonable car parking prices..certainly cheaper than any gym membership!

“Wild and windswept”
Reviewed 21 December 2013

Exactly as you would expect North Norfolk to be in December!

The fields either side of the car park were filled with Pink Foot geese with a few gaggles of Brent mixed in.

The sight of the Pink Feet leaving as dusk approached was awesome!

“Nature at its best”
Reviewed 18 December 2013

A beautiful beach and woodland which is very well maintained. Lots of walks which would suit lots of people. Sand dunes are a 30 minute walk but well worth it. Area suitable for dogs too.

“Visited the Holkham Hall Christmas Displays”
Reviewed 9 December 2013

Can only say how marvellous this experience was, and our little Grandaughter and Grandson, loved it, you could see their excitement in their little faces when they came face to face with Father Christmas.
