September, 2023


One of the things we love about what we do is the range of different people that we meet. Some people who stay with us just want to get away from it all and relax in the peaceful surroundings, maybe taking a short stroll on the beach. For others, a holiday isn’t a holiday unless you’ve tried something different and experienced a little adventure.

For those thrill-seekers amongst you, the good news is that we have a few things within a short drive of our holiday cottages that we think you’re going to love!

Sea Kayaking on the North Norfolk Coast

If you’ve kayaked before, put your skills to the test with a paddle around the network of channels that surround the North Norfolk Coast. Departing from Brancaster Staithe this guided tour with the Canoe Man will expose you to some of the wonderful flora and fauna that can be hard to reach from land. If you’ve not kayaked before, book on to an introductory session first to brush up on the basics before you head out.

Karting in Cromer 

If speed is more your thing, a trip to Karttrak in Cromer could be a high point of your holiday. From practice sessions to exclusive hire  and organised races, there are various options to suit different group sizes. The 550m track offers a thrill for any drivers over 8 years old (and 134cm) – but pre-booking is a must.

Adventures in the Trees 

Extreeme Adventures is just 30 minutes from us here at Fring, and offers off-road quad trekking safaris through the forest. Follow your instructor round one of the woodland dirt tracks, with different levels of route available. For the more competitive amongst you, there is also an army-style assault course where you can race side-by-side through, over and under a series of challenges.

Your own Coastal Charter

Being close to the coast, there are plenty of sea-faring adventures to be had. Curlew Coastal Charters offer boat trips from Wells-next-the-Sea, but you can also charter their boats for a one-of-a-kind trip that includes a wonderful meal. And if you’re visiting us for a special occasion, private hire of their vessels – including the Ernest Tom Neathercoat lifeboat – can be arranged 

Become a crack shot

Slightly further afield, but well-worth the day trip, Holt Woodland Archery and Airgun Club offers a great value adrenalin rush. Training and hire of all the kit you’ll need is included, as you get to grips with a bow and arrow, or air gun. The targets are set up within their 11 acre woodland site making it a beautiful place to spend a few hours. Open on Wednesday, Friday and the weekend, visit their Facebook page for the latest updates.
