Open all year round
Holkham is home to a 25,000 acre estate on the north Norfolk coast, in which stands Holkham Hall, an 18th century Palladian house, home to the Earl of Leicester.
The unspoilt picturesque beach at Holkham, has expansive white sands backed by sand dunes and pine woods. The setting for many films and popular with walkers and bathers alike, it can feel almost empty even at the height of summer.
Behind the shoreline lies a basin, which, at high tides, fills to form a spectacular shallow lagoon. Holkham beach is also part of one of the largest National Nature Reserves in the country and is home to many rare species of flora and fauna.
