Discover seal pups, a secluded holiday cottage and a heathland walk
Welcome to our November newsletter. This month you'll find out that it’s seal pup season at Horsey beach (which I love), where these wonderful creatures come to the Norfolk coast to give birth; it’s quite a spectacle. You can also discover a secluded getaway in the form of The Old Chapel holiday cottage which is a wonderful cosy retreat, and you can explore the Roydon Common circular walk taking you through some wonderful heathland and Norfolk’s beautiful countryside.

- The Old Chapel
- Roydon Common
The first seal pup has been spotted on Horsey beach, the beach has been cordoned off by Friends of Horsey seal wardens (who are brilliant and do a great job), and now is your chance to see this fantastic spectacle. But please, if you’ve got dogs, keep them under control, and don’t get close to any seals. If you disturb the mother, she won’t come back to her pup.
Check out the Seals at Horsey beach here.
This quiet and secluded holiday cottage sleeps 6 people. It’s a wonderfully peaceful retreat along a rural quiet lane in Pentney. A hot tub, infrared sauna and music room are available should you wish, and outdoor dining with your own pizza oven is a must do!

Roydon Common circular walk
If you choose to stay at The Old Chapel in Pentney, then this 5.5 mile circular walk around Roydon Common is the perfect choice for you, as it’s not far from the cottage. This is a very different walk to the usual coastal walk. It’s a lovely rural heathland and countryside walk in an area managed by the Norfolk Wildlife Trust. You may even see the wild ponies.
