SITUATION

Horsey Gap – Seals!

Horsey Gap is arguably the best place to see the seals on the North-East Norfolk Coast. The seals typically have their pups in late October/early November and carry on until early February. There is a pay and display car park before you approach the sand dunes.

Horsey windpump & Estate.

Horsey windpump is a windpump or drainage mill in the care of The National Trust and is Grade II* listed. The windpump has recently been restored and new sails were erected in 2018.

The Buxton family continue to manage the Horsey estate, emphasising nature conservation. Because of this, the estate has become an internationally important wildlife site. On the estate there are waymarked circular walks, the main one being the path via Brograve Mill; the walk provides great views across Horsey Mere and access to the beach at Horsey Gap. There are many windmills in this particular area, including West Somerton Mill, Heigham Holmes Mill, Brograve Mill, and Lambrigg Mill. Horsey Windpump is open daily from March to October.

The Nelson Head Pub

The Nelson Head Pub is located just up from the barn on the other side of the road, offering a traditional country pub with open fire, beer garden and serving food. It has a 4.5 out of 5 rating on Google Reviews, and the bar is dog friendly.
