Royal Connection The vast Sandringham Estate with its grand stately home, acres of woodlands, wetlands and bountiful fruit farms.

Why visit? Messing about on boats on The Broads will appeal to every child’s inner sailor, while the marshy Fenlands cry out for welly walks – the county’s notoriously flat terrain makes progress easy for even the littlest of legs. Picture-postcard fishing villages, like Wells-next-the-Sea, are prime spots for crabbing and general rock-pool pootling while the RSPB reserve at Titchwell Marsh is aflutter with hundreds of visiting and resident birds. For a wild boat ride, climb aboard the Wash Monster, an old rugged semi-amphibious vehicle from the Second World War, and set out in search of seals along the coastline.

Dine out at Brundall’s Lavender House, housed in a cosy 16th-century thatched building and serving delicious home-cooked country fare. 

Stay at Strattons, a gorgeous Queen Anne Palladian villa in Swaffham. From £150 per night.
