For a holiday by the seaside this summer, take a look at Norfolk; its vibrant coastal villages and soft, sandy beaches are helping this wonderful part of the country emerge as one of the UK’s most popular tourist destinations! Here at Sykes, we already know how special Norfolk is and that’s why we created our Visitor’s Guide to Norfolk last year, which was compiled from the responses of 1,000 of Norfolk’s residents and visitors, who were asked what they love most about the county. Their passion, pride and affection for Norfolk was evident and enough to anyone reading to pack their bags and head for East Anglia! If you’ve been likewise persuaded, then make sure you have a look at these coastal cottages perfect for your summer holiday in Norfolk.
