The Location

Mundseley is a pretty village situated on the coast of North Norfolk. It is a mixture of rich farming land and a popular seaside resort, popular with day trippers and as a destination for summer holidays. The beautiful sandy beach lined with colourful beach huts was voted the 2016 Best Blue Flag Beach in Britain by Holiday Lettings and the village reached the 2018 semi-finals of TV Channel 4's Village of the year is just a couple of minutes walk away.

Mundesley has its own inshore lifeboat, which is crewed and administered by local volunteers. There is also a Coastwatch station, manned all year round during daylight hours by local volunteers and, during the summer, there is a safe area of the beach continually watched over by the lifeguards from the RNLI.

The village itself is well served by local shops in and around its small High Street. A well-equipped medical centre, a library, a post-office, three pubs and various B&Bs make it an ideal place to live or to visit yet, somehow, it has not lost its old-world charm with thatched roofs, stone walls and many quaint and charming cottages.

Mundesley sits in a dip in the cliffs and from the clifftops there are spectacular views across the whole of the village and right across to Happisburgh lighthouse in the other direction. From the clifftop, you can walk across to Stow Mill passing the Mundesley Holiday Village. The village is a great starting point for country walks with plenty of footpaths, circular routes and walking trails including Paston Way and and the Norfolk Coast Path. Close by is Southrepps Common, an important area for wildlife with woodland and wild flowers.

Mundesley is also on the Deep History Coast Discovery Trail and has its own Discovery Point. A fine nine-hole golf course built in 1901, sits on the hillside of the River Mun valley and offers unrivalled views over the coast and countryside, which is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

For family fun, there is crazy golf, a skate park, play areas and a tennis court. In the Summer there is a surf school and there are geo-caches for treasure hunters. Throughout the year, visitors can enjoy exhibitions, fayres, festivals and concerts in the village halls and parks.
