Fun flows through Norfolk

Nights wrapped up warm next to a crackling fire mingle with days wandering wide and empty beaches, while the North Sea roars, in Norfolk. Cut through by The Broads – wiggling waterways and lakes where creaking windmills meet rustic farms – and fringed with some of the UK's most celebrated sands, it's hardly a surprise that Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty are always just around the corner in these parts. Castles, cathedrals and heritage homes bolster the lot, making Norfolk holiday rentals a real treat for loads of types of travellers.

The wild side of Norfolk

Norfolk's a playground for wildlife. Strolling atop the salt-washed sandbanks of Blakeney Point, you'll spot basking seals and their young pups. Wading the Cley Marshes is a chance to see avocets and cranes and terns flitting above the reeds. Meanwhile, Norfolk holiday rentals in The Broads promise a bucolic base amid barn owls and rare dragonflies and more. Just be sure to pack the walking boots and wellies, because you'll need to hit the countryside for that lot.

Waves and wartime wonders in Norfolk

Norfolk certainly isn't short of museums. The creak of fishing skiffs returns to Great Yarmouth thanks to the evocative displays of the Time and Tide Museum. Go there to unravel tales of herring smoking and seafaring. Back in Norwich city, the Norwich Castle Museum has spine-tingling dungeon tours and displays of Norman swords from centuries gone by. There's also the RAF Air Defence Radar Museum, a whirling mass of WWII tech. Or, there are the regal rooms and gardens of Sandringham House – great for those sunny summer outings.

From sunny blooms to wintry beaches in Norfolk

Norfolk locals will wax lyrical about just how handsome their humble county looks when the spring and summer swing around. Blooming wildflowers line The Broads and the beaches of the heritage coast start to bustle with life. It's hardly a surprise that coincides with the most popular period for travellers. To join them, look to book your Norfolk holiday rentals between May and August. Visits in autumn and winter promise something altogether different – think wild cliff walks and cosy cottage stays, with crackling fires, between October and March.

Water abounds in Norfolk

It's often said that Norfolk is half in the sea and half out of it. It can certainly seem that way as you move between the beaches and the countryside – water is everywhere. Just take the beautiful Broads, a mass of lakes and ponds and wetlands running for miles before it meets the coast. It's a hotspot for birders and picnickers from spring to September. Back on the seashore and the acclaimed Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty spreads over more than 270 square miles, its hiking trails passing seal grazing grounds and long lengths of sandy beach.
