Local Information

Manorwood is located in Thorpe Market, less than fifteen minutes walk from Gunton Railway Station which connects to Sheringham, Cromer and the historic City of Norwich. The nearest towns are Cromer and North Walsham, each having its own charm and offering holiday makers a traditional English seaside welcome.

Easy access either by train or car can also be made along the coast to Sheringham, a pretty preserved flint cobbled seaside town, the coast road having many charming villages peppered along it. Visit the remarkable beaches at Holkham and Wells Next the Sea to name just two! The genteel Georgian town of Holt is a must for anyone wanting to immerse themselves in history and the grandeur of a bygone age.

Other unusual places of interest include the theatre at the end of the pier in Cromer and the RNLI Museum, the Muckleburgh Military Museum at Weybourne, Felbrigg Hall (NT) and the majestic Blickling Hall (NT), Priory Maze and Gardens at Beeston Regis, Great Walsingham (Catholic Shrine and Medieval Town) and Lord Nelsonís Birthplace at Burnham Thorpe on the North Norfolk Coast.

For those interested in exploring the North Norfolk coastline, a short journey would take you to the charming seaside towns of Overstrand, Mundesley and onwards to Sea Palling. Those interested in bird life and the distinct ecology of the Norfolk Countryside will not want to miss a trip to the Norfolk Broads, including Wroxham Broad, only 30 minutes away.

Other nature reserve delights include Hickling Broad and the magical Ranworth (with its fascinating historic church). The whole area boasts some of the most attractive open spaces, with Sheringham Park and coastal walks amongst some of the best in the country.

Whatever you want to do, you are sure to find it in Norfolk. The North Norfolk heritage coast harks back to an unhurried bygone age, well preserved and a complete contrast to busy city life. With wide open skies, fresh air and beautiful countryside we have it all.
