About the neighbourhood
The Mousetrap sits opposite St Nicholas church at the bottom of the 'old' High Street. Walking to the quayside (less than 10 minutes) through the narrow alleys, flanked by colourful seaside cottages is an experience in itself. The quayside is a hive of activity - fishing boats bringing home their catch co-exist with kids crabbing and people eating fish and chips on the harbour wall. Quayside cafes and shops create a pleasant hum of activity whilst the Albatross, a quaint Dutch Schooner offers pancakes and drinks...there's no where else like it!
Getting around
The Coasthopper bus service operated by Stagecoach, runs between Kings Lynn and Cromer, with key station stops at Heacham, Hunstanton, Holkham, WELLS, Blakeney and Sheringham. You can buy a ticket for a single fare between 2 points, or you can buy 1, 3 or 7 day hop on-hop off tickets. With a frequent timetable, it's a perfect way to cost effectively explore the North Norfolk coast, especially if you don't have a car.
