cottages are surrounded by fields and there are lots of footpaths for good
walks straight from the door. For toddlers there is a gentle circular walk up
the track and back through the village to the house - about a mile. In autumn
there are blackberries for feasting along the way and the bluebells in spring
are magical. Wellies can be left undercover outside the door.
East Beckham is located two miles inland from Sheringham and just six miles from the boutiques, bistros and delis of Holt.
