The pleasant village of Snettisham offers something for everyone, whatever your age and whatever the weather! The beach here is enormous – wide & spacious, it lies almost two miles from the actual village and is a mixture of stone and sand, with a grassy area behind.
At the southern end of Snettisham beach is the well-known RSPB Nature Reserve, here you will find a number of hides you can use without having to be a member. From the hides you can enjoy one of the country’s greatest wildlife spectacles, especially when the rising high spring tides force thousands of birds to leave the mudflats where they are feeding and settle close to the hides.
Snettisham is a walkers haven, particularly for dog owners with the village having miles of public footpaths plus the ancient Peddars Way is found nearby.
A firm favourite for children is Snettisham Park Farm – a working farm that offers hands-on activities. Along with the traditional farm animals, deer and llamas can be found here, plus tractor and trailer rides making this a family fun day out.
Again aimed at children, the traditional seaside town of Hunstanton with its sandy beach, promenade, sea-life centre and fairground rides is just a mere five miles away.
For adults you will be spoilt for choice of where to visit first, with so many fantastic places to explore locally – such as the Royal Sandringham Estate, Holkham Hall, Norfolk Lavender and Houghton Hall to name just a few.
