Sedgeford is a thriving, small village a short drive from the sea at Hunstanton and 5 minutes to the A149 which takes you to King's Lynn with its mainline station to London some 16 miles away. Situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), the village is surrounded by beautiful open countryside, recorded in the Domesday Book 1086 and still producing fascinating historical research through a long term and on-going project known as SHARP (Sedgeford Historical and Archaeological Research Project). For a village of this size, there is plenty going on and has the added benefit of a busy village hall, well respected pub and primary school.
Peddars Way, a long distance Roman road, runs through the top end of the village, across the old Sedgeford railway line and directly onto the Norfolk Coastal path which leads westwards through the lovely coastal villages of Holme, Thornham, Brancaster, the Burnhams and onwards to Cromer. East of Sedgeford is the village of Docking with plenty of amenities including shop, post office, surgery, takeaway whilst to the west at Heacham is the much visited attraction, Norfolk Lavender which also has a farm shop, garden centre, shop and café.
