Old Hunstanton has history dating back as far as AD 855 where it is reported St Edmund was shipwrecked on its shores. In later years it was primarily a fishing village with the Le Strange family ruling over it as Lords of the Manor for 800 years. In even more recent years, PG Wodehouse was a regular guest of the Le Strange family and, it is rumoured, some of his best known characters may be based on people he met during his Norfolk visits.
Today, Old Hunstanton is a peaceful coastal retreat boasting a championship golf club, wide sandy beaches, pubs/restaurants, village shop/Post Office/deli and the Le Strange Old Barn – a selection of craft workshops including woodturning, glass painting, antiques and a working pottery.
