Christmas Holidays in Norfolk

Christmas is, admittedly, a stressful time of year. Last-minute gift panic, hellish, overcrowded shopping centres, and the impending fear of cooking the much-anticipated Christmas dinner help dampen the Christmas cheer reflected so earnestly in festive films! This year, why not escape your Christmas angst and enjoy a relaxing rural getaway in Norfolk? Experience the vast, tranquil flatlands of this curious Eastern corner of England, discovering north Norfolk's peerless coastline, southern Norfolk's picturesque market towns, and the goregous city of Norwich. Whether you’re seeking authentic Christmas markets, crisp December morning strolls, or envisage yourself fireside in a bustling local pub, Norfolk's choice of idyllic destinations makes it an ideal December getaway. Rediscover Christmas in one of our Norfolk rentals, and enjoy a festive themed retreat in stunning East Anglia.

  1. Norwich

    Norwich, Norfolk county's capital, is full of quaint independent stores, boutiques, hearty pubs (one for every day of the year!) and vibrant nightlife. Wander beneath the rainbow-coloured roofs of Europe’s largest undercover market in search of one-of-a-kind Christmas gifts. Learn about the city’s past with a visit to the Cathedral or majestic Norman castle, and enjoy a Norfolk ale in the 13th century Adam and Eve public house. Cap off your day with a hike up Mousehold Heath for stunning views of the city under the low winter sun.

  2. Burnham Market and Brancaster

    Nestled away from the sandy shores of the glorious North Norfolk coastline is the idyllic Georgian village of Burnham Market, renowned for its scenic beauty and welcoming character. The area is much more than its reported fame for celebrity holiday residences: explore the family-owned businesses in the centre, stopping for scones and jam in the tea shops, scanning the fantastic book shops and purchasing organic produce at the local groceries before heading to Hunstanston or Brancaster beach.

  3. Holt

    Holt is a, perhaps the, charming market town. The town's character and colourful Georgian buildings reflects Holt's status as one of the most attractive destinations in the region. Once described as a 'mecca' for visitors looking for independent shops, Holt's unique galleries and antique shops, quaint tea rooms and cozy pubs make this a perfect destination for a relaxing getaway. The town's distinctive white fairy lights over Christmas evoke a magical atmosphere. And don't miss the old fashioned steam train to the nearby coastal town of Sheringham!

  4. Wymondham

    Wymondham, just a stone's throw from Norwich, is a quiet, rural place. Learn about this endearing area at the local heritage centre. After tea and scones in one of its quaint tearooms, stroll through Wymondham's weekly Friday Market or Saturday Farmer's Market and purchase local produce or Christmas gifts for family and friends. Wander the grounds of the stunning Wymondham Abbey and enjoy locally sourced food at one of the town's delightful restaurants, sampling Norfolk's ales, home-brewed ciders and hams.

  5. The Broads: Wroxham, Hoveton and Potter Heigham

    The majestic rivers and stunning lakes that form the Norfolk Broads have helped make its reputation as one of England's most alluring wetland regions. From the Broad's tranquil waters explore quaint waterside pubs, hearty fish and chip restaurants, and peaceful, quiet walking trails. Watch the mist rise from the water and feel inspired over the Christmas period, visiting craft stalls, workshops and galleries for perfect festive gifts and chats with friendly locals.
