Tatt Valley (near Fakenham) is a haven of rural tranquillity, but there is also plenty of interest for the visitor within a few miles. Holkham, Wells and Brancaster boast magnificent sandy beaches and there are important bird reserves at Sculthorpe, Titchwell, Cley and Snettisham. Walking and sailing are a delight along this unique coastline and the quiet lanes inland are perfect for cycling and walking. Boat trips to see the seals off Blakeney Point regularly depart from Blakeney Quay and Morston.
