Buckets and spades at the ready! Mundesley is a wonderful seaside village with sandy beaches, shallow pools, and a parade of brightly-coloured beach huts along the seafront. It's the perfect family setting for sandcastles, beach sculptures, ice creams and a paddle in the sea! The nearby Ship Inn is home to Lil' Ship, a retired vessel where you can get tasty snacks to enjoy in the pub garden. Take a stroll through the picturesque streets of Mundesley, which are lined with pretty cottages. You can also feed the ducks on Mundesley millpond before heading off to beautiful Stow Mill, which lies just a mile or so south of the village.
Mundesley's popularity as a holiday destination dates back to the Victorian age, and its appeal endures precisely because it offers a more traditional holiday.
With a parade of brightly-painted beach huts along its front, Mundesley's wide stretches of sandy beach and shallow pools are an ideal playground for children, while sea fishing provides good sport whichever part of the year you choose to visit.
The village sits in the Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and is within easy distance of North Walsham, Stalham and the Norfolk Broads. If you enjoy country walks, Mundesley has plenty of footpaths and circular routes. Nearby Southrepps Common is an important area for wildlife. Covering some 12 hectares it is a mixture of woodland, reed grass and wild flowers. A fine nine-hole golf course offers unrivalled views over the coast.
