I don't know the estate but know where it is and would imagine it would be rather lovely grin

don't know the Kelling Estate specifically, but N Norfolk is a lovely part of the world. Holt a pretty town to potter round, Sheringham has a lovely beach, putting greens (more fun than you might imagine) a theatre with weekly rep in the summer and some good teashops. There is a steam train form Sheringham to Holt via Kelling, and a mainline train to Norwich, which has various museums - the castle museum is quite good. Cromer is a bit bigger and more touristy with a soft play oin case of bad weather. Ask if you need more info smile

I don't know the estate itself - but it is a nice area - Kelling Heath particularly.

Tutter, I've just booked a short hol at Kelling Heath. Not been before either but it sounds fab (and was one of the Grauniad's recommendations for kids).

Tutter Thu 27-Mar-08 13:09:36

ooh good stuff thanks

any other 'to do' recommendations for little children (a 3yo and a just-turned 1yo) would be very welcome

I wasn't accusing you of slumming it at Kelling Heath, Tutter grin. Honest (tugs forelock).

won't do the August Carnival dates then smile

Wroxham Barns is pretty good I believe, my godmother regularly takes her grandchildren there. wroxham barns

Splash swimming pool in S-ham has a beach style shallow end, really good for toddlers.

you can hit some fab weather in September, the beaches are really good - Sheringahm is golden sand below stones - you need to be aware of the tides as the sand is only exposed for part of the day. Is sand all day at Runton, but is dry sand so not so good for digging.

PandaG Thu 27-Mar-08 13:22:24

oh yes, walking in Sheringham Park is lovely

Tutter Thu 27-Mar-08 13:22:49

<quickly fashions a second badge for panda>

thank you smile

there is a small playpark right on the seafront in Sheringham, and a bigger one on the main Cromer road.

PandaG Thu 27-Mar-08 13:24:51

grin can you tell it is a part of gthe world I know well? We are off there tomorrow, my Ps live in N Norfolk

Fimbo Thu 27-Mar-08 13:28:09

Is Sheringham the one that has the model boat ponds? I get the seafront there mixed up with Cromer!

Accepts travel agent badge and -forgets- -to- tell Tutter about the time we got stuck behind the Salvation Army band in Sheringham

PandaG Thu 27-Mar-08 13:30:34

Sheringham does have a model boating lake, right near the start of a cliff walk along gthe golf links. Many a happy hour has been spent sailing boats on the lake

PandaG Thu 27-Mar-08 13:32:00

Cromer has trampolines and rowing boats/canoes near the sea front in gthe summer, not sure if they would be there in Sept. THere is a cinema in Cromer too, often has slightly older films iirc
