About Weybourne Home Farm Holiday Cottages
Weybourne Home Farm is everything you could want for a fabulous family holiday. A fantastic location in which to explore both the beautiful North Norfolk coast and the countryside.
Weybourne Home Farm Holiday Cottages is a complex of 17 pretty flint self catering cottages with plenty of on-site facilities to keep children of all ages occupied. Located in Weybourne, a popular unspoilt village on the beautiful North Norfolk Coast, the cottages are ideally places being just a 10 minute walk away from the sea, whilst the family friendly pub and local shop are a mere 5 minute toddle. The fabulous indoor swimming pool is ever popular with families and the separate games room and spacious outdoor play area with a gorgeous play house, gives alternatives for kids to let off steam. Across the fields you can hear the occasional toot toot from the nearby Poppyline vintage steam trains, a day out for the children to look forward to. The friendly and approachable owners Sally and Paul live on-site with their family and so are on-hand to help and give advice on the best beaches and places to go in Norfolk with kids in tow. Not only are the children catered for there is an on site Beauty Room for some holiday pampering for parents too.
Weybourne Home Farm is also a working farm growing sugar beet and malting barley nestling between the heath and coast on the edge of Weybourne village, away from the coast road. Sally, your host, lives on site with her young family and she is extremely approachable and friendly. Obviously having brought up her family in the area she is the ideal person to advise families of the best beaches and days out in the surrounding area. Just 5 minutes walk away will bring you to the village where you will find a pub, a restaurant, two churches and a shop that all your basic food supplies.

Family Friendly Facilities
The luxury indoor heated swimming pool is a welcome addition to Home Farm as it provides endless entertainment all year round for families with kids. Plans are afoot to upgrade and improve the existing games room which already houses a pool table and table tennis. The children's outdoor play area is located behind the swimming pool and has spacious grounds with climbing frame, swings & picnic tables. There is also a very chic playhouse with a nearby play track for little ones to push prams or tractors around. Dads and Mums can read a paper or book sat at the picnic table whilst keeping an eye on little ones playing. You can also hear the toot of the nearby steam railway in the distance. There is also a laundry room and bike store.
Things to do and Places for Families to visit in Norfolk
Being a coastal village the sea is only a 10 minute walk away from the cottages. This is not a bathing beach due to the deep water, but there are plenty of pebbles to collect and it is a great spot to watch the local fishermen bring back their catch of the day. On the edge of Weybourne, just 10 minutes walk from Home Farm, is a collection of 16 working tanks and over 3000 other military exhibits - the Muckleburgh Military Museum. This is a good half a day out for all generations, with a lot of local history too.
The places to visit are endless for families young and old. The best days out are the free ones and just a few minutes in the car are the sandy beaches at Sheringham, West Runton and Cromer. Slightly further afield you can enjoy the wide expanse of beaches at Holkham and Wells. In the other direction enjoy the simple pleasures like crabbing on Blakeney quay or take a trip to see the seals at Blacken Point.
Or maybe take a train ride on the North Norfolk Railway or Bure Valley Railway. Hire a boat on the North Norfolk Broads, visit the Dinosaur Park or The Norfolk Shire Horse Centre with its riding school, or get lost in the Priory Maze and Gardens at Sheringham followed by tea in its tearooms.
