Great naturist beach, if you're into that, but still a great wide stretch of beach for indy walks for miles and miles. Good pub/hotel, The Victoria, at the start of the beach.

We would like to stay overnight in a hotel and stable the horses, is there anywhere local?

Is there anywhere local to the beach where we can stable the horses overnight and have a sleep over in a hotel or B and B?

Holkham Beach

This beach is apparently a favourite of the Queen – ideal for a quick trip out when corgi duties call when she's staying at Sandringham. Protected from view, and unnecessary winds by a forest of pines, the dunes are shapely and the sand leading down to the calm water's edge flat, smooth and the colour of pancake batter. You have to pay to park but there are no facilities beyond the kiosk in the car park and you can walk for ages with only the company of the seals bobbing out to sea and some chatty birds greeting you with stories about their encounters with the Queen and corgis.
