The Fishermans' Morris Minor

The Morris Minors at the Fishermans Return offer the perfect way to enjoy the slower pace of life in our beautiful county.

Take in the scenery, soak up the atmosphere and sample some of Norfolk’s fabulous beaches.

Drive up the coast from Winterton and in just 10 minutes the white sails of Horsey wind pump come into view. This National Trust attraction reopened in 2018 after extensive restoration.

The staithe at Horsey is also home to a café and wildlife boat trips. A short distance further on brings you to Horsey Gap where seals can be seen sunning themselves on the unspoilt beach.

North of Horsey is Waxham where there is yet another stunning beach and the 16th Century Waxham Great Barn, which is open during the summer.

Fifteen minutes up the coast is one of Norfolk’s most iconic landmarks – the lighthouse at Happisburgh.

This 85ft tall tower with its red and white bands is topped by the oldest working lighthouse in East Anglia and is the only independently-run lighthouse in the UK.

Pootle off north again and 30 minutes later you reach Cromer, home of the pier and other attractions including the Henry Blogg lifeboat museum.

And just a few miles further on you can step back in time by boarding a steam train belonging to the North Norfolk Railway at Sheringham.

Head inland from Winterton and you will find beautiful broads, pretty villages, open gardens and nature reserves like Fairhaven Water Garden and Strumpshaw Fen – many within about 30 minutes’ drive.

Thank you to Jan Hewitt, who allowed us to film on the dune system at Winterton beach car park.
