Under your nose?

The last few months have seen a lot of us stay closer to home – and many of us have come to discover things that we’d never seen before, lurking just round the corner. It goes to show you don’t have to travel for thousands, hundreds, even tens of miles to experience something new. Based in North Norfolk, we’re blessed with wonderful countryside and outdoor ‘things to do’.
We uncovered a gem the other day and, though it’s less than 30 minutes away, no one I’ve spoken to knows about it or, if they do, they’ve never been. Hindringham Hall, between Holt and Fakenham, is a delightful place to visit – lovely walks, gardens, medieval fishponds, a moated house and a rather jolly tearoom. Not somewhere I’d have thought to visit before lockdown, more fool me. Despite it’s lack of fame it’s been shortlisted for the Historic Houses Garden of the Year Award – previous winners include Blenheim Palace, and it’s up against stiff competition. Small but perfectly formed, we wish it the best of luck.
