As East of England escapes go, this pretty north Norfolk fishing town gets our gold medal! With wonderful wildlife, winding waymarked trails, serene salt marshes and a sweeping stretch of sandy beach, you'd be hard pressed to find somewhere more picturesque. Visit the Norfolk fishing town, a great location for activity breaks, walking holidays and relaxing weekends away. Holkham beach is a highlight. It’s four miles long and has been described as one of the most unspoiled, beautiful stretches of sand in the UK.

Explore the creeks and salt marshes teeming with bird life, walk along sandy beaches on a seaside break, or take a boat trip to see the seal colony. You could even go crabbing on the quayside before tucking into the local fish and chips! Castle, church and abbey ruins are just waiting to be discovered, along with art galleries, steam railways, a reconstructed Iron Age village and cycle ways galore.

There are 31 beds and a selection of private rooms and dorm beds available. The hostel has a lounge area with a TV and DVD player where guests can relax and unwind.

Hire the whole place

This hostel is occasionally made available for hire on an exclusive basis. This means that you can have the place to yourself and choose how many of your friends, family, club mates, etc., join you. We allocate availability for exclusive use in blocks, typically up to 90 days in the future. If you are looking for space to stay with us on a normal shared basis, and can’t see any availability three months or more into the future, then this hostel may be being held for Exclusive Hire. You can check availability for Exclusive Hire on our dedicated website, or use our live chat service for more information.

Self-Catering Facilities

The hostel is self-catering only, but within walking distance from a good selection of pubs and shops. Cook up some scrumptious sustenance in the self-catering kitchen or visit one of the town's fantastic venues! The kitchen has two ovens, three sets of hobs, two microwaves, two kettles, two fridges with a tiny freezer - plus enough pots, pans, cutlery and crockery to serve 30 hungry hostellers.
