Holkham, Norfolk

The beach at Holkham is one of the most unspoilt and beautiful stretches of sand in the country.

The actress Gwyneth Paltrow walked across Holkham sand at low tide during the closing scenes of the film ‘Shakespeare in Love’.

Behind the shoreline lies a semi-circular basin, which, at very high tides, rapidly fills to form a spectacular shallow lagoon. Holkham Beach is also part of one of the largest National Nature Reserves in the country. It is managed by Natural England in partnership with the Holkham Estate and is home to many rare species of flora and fauna.

Holkham beach was recently voted ‘Best Beach in the UK’ in a survey of travel writers.

Holkham beach is extremely Dog Friendly – dog owners are asked to keep dogs on leads until they get on the beach and to clear up any mess.

From Spring onwards you will find an Ice Cream van with local ice cream for after your walk.

    A dog that is obedient off the leash at residence continues to be more likely to turn into nervous when travelling.
