Hopkins Homes - Butterfield Meadow, PE31
<b> Butterfield Meadows </b>
The coastal town retains elements of the stately Victorian features, now mixed with modern amenities and attractions that include bars, restaurants, a 472 seat theatre, a striking lighthouse, a fairground and an aquarium to name but a few.
Hunstanton sits facing west over a wide stretch of shallow and sheltered water known as The Wash, which offers vast stretches of sandy beaches, rock pools to explore and incredible sunsets. Throughout the year, the large colonies of grey seals that have become a feature of this coast can be seen from guided boat tours as they bask amongst the sand banks.
Hunstanton is renowned for its red and white chalk striped cliffs. The cliffs form part of the Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and span between the town and Old Hunstanton. They offer home to a variety of birds and are renowned for the ancient fossils buried within its chalk.
The coast is also home to the wreck of Sheraton, a trawler famous in the area. It was launched in 1907 and was used for boom defence work and as a patrol vessel during Second World War. Boom defences were strung shore to shore and protected coastlines against enemy ships. Wrecked only 40 years after its launch, the remains span 50 feet along the foot of the cliffs.
For the avid walker, Holme Dunes is just minutes away. Offering walks in open wilderness of sand dunes, mud flats, salt marshes, water meadows, pine forests and tranquil beaches. The area is teeming with wildlife and is ideal for migrating birds; it is also dotted with various military remains from the Second World War.
In just over 30 minutes the historic seaport of King's Lynn can be reached, brimming with history and culture. With a rich maritime past and vibrant present, there is plenty to take in. Boasting live entertainment at the Corn Exchange and Arts Centre, the town also hosts events for all to enjoy throughout its parks, gardens and leisure facilities.
