Old Hunstanton Norfolk

Holidays in Old Hunstanton West Norfolk

For those looking for a quieter holiday location yet within easy access of a lively seaside resort then the village of Old Hunstanton on the West Coast of Norfolk is the place to go.

It has lovely wide golden sandy beaches with colourful beach huts peeping out from amongst the sand dunes. The village mostly consists of gingerbread houses built from the local stone and from the beach you can see the old lighthouse and the famous multi-coloured cliffs. 

There is an extensive championship golf course located just behind the wide sandy beaches. 

Originally a fishing village, Old Hunstanton can trace its history back to AD 855 when St. Edmund was shipwrecked here.

Like its Big Sister Hunstanton, Old Hunstanton on the West Coast actually faces east and therefore benefits from some spectacular sunsets over the sea.

The village of Old Hunstanton has two pubs as well as hotel restaurants and the Old Hunstanton Neptune Restaurant.  There is a Post Office and delicatessen, but for a greater range of shops head for Hunstanton, which is a mile and a half away.
