Tough question to answer maybe? 

Like asking how long is a piece of string, but it's one we sometimes ponder here in Fakenham, north Norfolk.

The truth of the matter is there's differing opinions on the best parts - but you must have an absolute favourite? 

Let's narrow it down into some categories to maybe make your decision more focused - let's say coastal, town or country but keep it within the bounds of north Norfolk - Norwich is undoubtedly a gem of a city but we'll ignore its virtues in this blog post.

Consider coastal towns first - Hunstanton, Wells next the Sea, Cromer and Sheringham.

The most expensive property is to be found in Wells - so does that mean it's the best town in north Norfolk? Or does Sheringham with Beeston Bump appeal to you more? Cromer is enjoying something of a renaissance and it's not to difficult to fathom why. That pier, its crabs and its antiquated winding streets and steep descents to its beach are incredibly attractive.

Hunstanton and Old Hunstanton, with easy access to King's Lynn and delightful beaches and typical seaside attractions are not without appeal.

What about the bejewelled market towns of Holt, the Burnhams and Fakenham? 

Or the smaller settlements of Blakeney, Brancaster and Cley?


We knew this was an ambitious blog when we started it.

There's little not to love about any part of north Norfolk. 


If we had to pick?

Just one place in north Norfolk?

Tough decision, but we could say one is a favourite of our Fakenham estate agency team.


Holkham beach.

The setting for scenes in Shakespeare in Love and a walk that beguiles and seduces on every repeat visit.

Walking from the car park through the grassy dunes, to the wide expanses of beach with obligatory paddling in the stream that is crystal clear and teeming with fish, Holkham beach is our favourite part of north Norfolk.

What's your personal favourite?
