Lazy Otter Meadows
Cambridge Road, Stretham, Ely, Cambridgeshire CB6 3LU
Occupying an idyllic position on the banks of the River Ouse, Lazy Otter Meadows is the perfect choice for those hoping to explore the region’s surrounding treasures, including the stunning Norfolk Coast, home to one of Britain’s officially designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
A time-honoured family favourite due to its long, clean sandy beaches, lively resorts such as Hunstanton, Cromer and Great Yarmouth, and a wide range of fun coastal activities, the Norfolk Coast has a huge amount going for it as a holiday destination. Don’t miss the famous (and undeniably cute) seals at Blakeney Point, or the beautiful Victorian pier that juts out to sea from Cromer. The Norfolk Coast is simply teeming with wildlife, from the diverse bird species that nest in lagoons, on windswept sand dunes and rocky cliffs, to deer, otters and hares. If you’re here to walk, you’re spoilt for choice with an abundance of trails suitable for everyone from families with young children to experienced hikers. Tranquillity, fresh air and incredible scenery – what more could you ask for? Out on the coast can be found some of England’s most beloved wilderness – one holiday here is never enough.
