Hunstanton is a popular coastal resort sixteen miles from King's Lynn and approx twelve miles from
Sandringham on the A149 in Norfolk, England.
Hunstanton was built as a Norfolk seaside resort and gained popularity as early as the 1860s. Today, Hunstanton retains its Victorian character and remains a popular holiday location for all ages but particularly families with a wide selection of bed and breakfast accommodation. This Norfolk town possibly takes its name from the River Hunn, though it is also said that the name Hunstanton originated from the word "Honeystone", the name of the local stone from years gone by. The River begins in the grounds of Old Hunstanton Park which also houses the grand Old Moated Hall, the Ancestral home of the Le Strange Family.
For many years Hunstanton's main beach has achieved Quality Coast Award status for its water quality and high safety standards. For a second successive year, Hunstanton beach has also been awarded the coveted international Blue Flag award. The Blue Flag Award is bestowed based on the water quality, provision of rescue equipment during the peak season, beach cleanliness including provision of litter bins, provision of disabled and pram access, well maintained toilets, clearly signed car parks, the enforcement and control of the beach dog ban and widely accessible information points.
