Area Guide

Sheringham and it's surrounding area

‘Mare ditat pinusque decorat’, the towns motto, meaning, “the sea enriches and the pine adorns”…

… and they do; as you drive down the hill through Pretty Corner Woods the charming seaside town of Sheringham appears lying nestled in front of the expansive sea and between the stunning rolling cliffs on the North Norfolk coast. The town is still “enriched” by the sea today not from the daily catch but as it attracts so many visitors.

Sheringham is a popular destination for locals and visitors for shopping, enjoying the sandy beaches, cliff tops, promenade and all that this traditional seaside holiday destination has to offer - and it has plenty! Elegant Victorian and flint decorated buildings line the bustling high street which has a superb variety of independent shops, cafes and restaurants. Sheringham has all the usual amenities including a primary and high school, doctors, dentists, veterinary services and the great Little Theatre.

Sheringham is surrounded by natural beauty, idyllic countryside and sits on a stunning coast. There are great walks and bird watching locations, golf courses, opportunities for fishing and sailing and to get on your bicycles. The National Trust’s Sheringham Park and Felbrigg Hall are close by, and further down the coast is Blakeney Point. It really is a superb base if you love the outdoor lifestyle.
