I have done my best to try and provide you with some local information that you should find useful during your stay on Rainbows End Park, Bacton, Norfolk. Much of the information has been linked to Google Maps - so try clicking the links (blue lettering) if you require directions.

SUPERMARKETS.

SAINSBURY’S - Sainsburys - Bacton Rd. North Walsham, NR28 9DS.

TESCO’S - Tescos - Old Market Rd. Stalham, NR12 9AE.

WAITROSE LTD.- Waitrose - Cromer Rd. North Walsham, NR28 0NB.

These are the three nearest, major supermarkets.

 

PUBLIC HOUSES.

The Poachers Pocket - Poachers Pocket - Walcott Rd. Walcott, NR12 0LS.

The Duke Pub - The Duke -  Coast Rd. NR12 0EU.

 

DINING OUT.

The Lighthouse - The Lighthouse Inn, Coast Rd. Walcott, NR12 0PE.

Sea Star Chinese - Sea Star Chinese, Coast Rd. Bacton, NR12 0EW.

Fish & Chips - The Bacton Fish Shop, Coast Rd. Bacton, NR12 0AA.

Fish & Chips - Kingfisher Fish Bar, Coast Rd. Walcott, NR12 0AP.

Labone - Labone, 13A Mundesley Rd. N.Walsham, NR28 0DA.

Al Haqqs Kitchen - al Haqqs, 4 Mundesley Rd. N.Walsham, NR28 0DA.

These are the most local eateries. They are not ‘personal recommendations’, although I can thoroughly recommend both Fish & Chip shops. Also, if you like a ‘Full English breakfast’ of a morning, then the Kingfisher Cafe, next to the Kingfisher Fish Bar, is worth a look.

 

SHOPS.

These are few and far between in Bacton! There is a small shop on Coast Rd. just past ‘Bacton Fish Shop’. You should be able to get a few essentials like bread and milk etc.. The Post Office/Spar in Walcott (just past the Kingfisher Fish Bar), also has a few of the necessities.

My advice, for what it’s worth - Bacton is a lovely, quiet village, situated right on the coast. It has some of the best sandy beaches you will find anywhere (in the UK at least), and a lot of the time you will have them to yourselves. For anything else, you really need a car to get around.

Norwich is appr. 20 miles away and has the best array of shops outside of London (so they say!).

Wroxham is around 10 miles away and is the ‘gateway’ for the Norfolk Broads. Here you can hire a boat, or just go out for a day trip on the beautiful broads that Norfolk is famous for.
