Cottages in a Quiet Village
This beautiful little village, also referred to as Lower Kelling or Low Kelling, is a peaceful and private holiday destination. We have some spectacular holiday cottages with multiple bedrooms on offer, which are ideal for larger families or group getaways with friends.
Shell Cottage is a beautifully decorated brick and flint building that sleeps six. Tern Place and Plover House sleep six and eight guests respectively in luxurious comfort – they even share a tennis court and heated indoor swimming pool. Dogs are welcome at all three of these properties for a small extra charge.
Things to do in Kelling
Kelling Heath is a great place to explore the local wildlife. There are several signposted walks through this pretty woodland area. Thanks to the huge expanses of open heathland on the coastal flats, combined with the lack of any major cities nearby Kelling Heath has gloriously clear night skies. It has become a hub for star gazers from all over the country and is now listed as a ‘Dark Sky Reserve’.
If you feel like dining out there are a number of terrific pubs and restaurants in Kelling and the surrounding area. The Pheasant Hotel and Restaurant in the village itself has recently been taken over, completely renovated and is getting some great acclaim for it food.
Kelling has a beautiful pebble beach that’s perfect for long walks. Whether you’re after a fun family activity, romantic stroll or just somewhere to take your pet pooch, you’ll love the endless views across the sea from these stony shores.
The walk to Kelling beach is also very scenic, taking you through beautiful countryside and protected marshes. This route is relatively unknown, making the beach a very secluded and even more special spot.
Discover the Local History
Norfolk has a rich history, with points of interests dotted throughout the county. Kelling and its surrounding areas have seen many fascinating discoveries dating back to Anglo-Saxon and Roman times.
Kelling is also closely linked to Norfolk’s modern military history. Several Norcon pillboxes used for the defence of the area during World War Two are visible on local beaches, and the Muckleburgh Military History Collection is well worth a visit.
