Join us for some Unique Stays UK. What makes the UK unique? Red Buses, Cups of Tea, The Royal Family, or the Great British Countryside? The answer is all the above plus much more. Those of you seeking the beautiful British countryside with a bit of royalty thrown in should head to Norfolk. Just 8 miles from Kings Lynn is Sandringham House, unquestionably the much-loved country retreat of Her Majesty the Queen. The house has been the private home of fur generations of British Monarchs since 1862. Sandringham Royal Parkland spreads over 243 hectares and is particularly dog friendly with trails marked for cycling or exploring by foot.
Undoubtedly little ones will enjoy a visit to the adventure playground with its high-level walkways and 26ft Water Tower and slide based on the Appleton Water Tower in Norfolk. A visit to Sandringham in September gives you a chance to apple pick in Her Majesties own orchards. Alternatively visit in December for a magical walk through the woods as Luminate takes over. In addition to this visit over Christmas and head to St Mary Magdalene Church for a chance to glimpse members of the Royal Family on their way to Christmas Service.
About 30mins from Sandringham is Pentney Lakes, here we have two unique properties for you. Alpine lodge is as it sounds a Timber built lodge in an Alpine style, with a stunning cathedral style vaulted ceiling. There are 4 double bedrooms which are all en-suite. The unique thing about this property is the living area is upstairs just as you would find in the Alps. With a manmade beach in the back garden and access to the fishing lakes this makes Alpine Lodge undoubtedly an ideal break for the whole family.
