Waxham

Visit Website  NR29 4EF

Dog friendliness:  9/10  Very good. Lots of empty beach and a good strip of dunes.

Restrictions:  The Horsey seal breeding colony sometimes spreads down to Waxham so there are occasional roped off areas in the winter.

Access:  Sandy slope to beach over dunes.

Facilities:  There isn’t a proper car park which means it doesn’t get too busy! The parking is on the track leading to the beach behind the large farmhouse next to Waxham Great Barn.  The Dunes Cafe that used to be at Winterton is now here in the Waxham Great Barn yard.  Dogs are allowed in the courtyard where there is plenty of seating. (If you are a repeat guest with us at ERC then we offer £10 vouchers to use at both this great cafe – they also have one on the riverside at Acle)

Nearest to: An easy walk from St Benets and Deepdale in Sea Palling and a short drive from the Hickling houses, Misty Meadow and Red Roofs

What the locals know:  Not a very well known beach and not a lot of parking so ideal if you want to keep away from other visitors. An easy walk from here to Sea Palling along the beach or the back of the dunes or even on the dunes, stop for an ice cream or cake and head back again!
