Upper Sheringham, Norfolk

+ Add to favourites


This section of the page features an image gallery, so if you're using a screen reader you may wish to jump to the main content.

1 Cart Lodge is on the first floor of a converted barn complex that sits on the edge of Sheringham Park estate. The exposed beams give it lots of character and the relaxed, informal layout makes it popular with families. As you relax outside a highlight will be hearing the trains on the Poppy Line Steam Railway that runs along the cliff tops just across the fields or catching a glimpse of the resident barn owl.

It isn’t every day that you are given access, whatever the time of day, to 770 acres of woodland, gardens and coastline, you can already start planning those adventures, at Sheringham they actively encourage you to try your hand at den building! There are numerous marked walking trails which are superb for safe, off road cycling, wild flower meadows and even a bug hunting area. If you can drag yourself away the fabulous sandy beaches are just a 20 minute walk away or further down the coast at Blakeney Quay you can try crabbing or join a seal watching boat trip! Sheringham high street is a hive of sea front shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants and there are so many visitor attractions nearby you’ll be spoilt for choice.

The Splash leisure pool is less than a ten minute drive and if you are looking for more ways to entertain your family during your stay we also run events and activities at Sheringham Park and many of our Norfolk properties throughout the year. For some inspiration click on the ‘Nearby’ tab above.

East Anglia

The ancient kingdom of East Anglia has preserved much of its unspoilt character, rural landscape, architecture and traditions with attractions ranging from the University city of Cambridge and the Cathedral city of Ely, to glorious, often deserted, sandy beaches, lots of seaside fun, outdoor pursuits and the unspoilt waterways of The Broads. National Trust places in East Anglia are equally varied, ranging from the magnificent Blickling Hall in Norfolk, the impressive rotunda at Ickworth, near Bury St. Edmunds, the elegant Anglesey Abbey, to the dramatic coastline at Dunwich Heath, with its neighbouring RSPB sanctuary and the Anglo-Saxon royal burial site at Sutton Hoo.

    Good quality accommodation

    This was our first stay in a NT property and it was very pleasant. Good quality accommodation, in a good location with access to lots of places to visit. An excellent experience that means we will use NT accommodation again in the future.
