This is Ringstead, a quaint place that is full of unexpected finds.
This is the place. That special somewhere for you to explore at a stroll. Somewhere off the beaten track; somewhere secret; somewhere that’s chock-full of character and history; somewhere that’s tucked out of sight, enveloped by patchwork fields as far as the eye can see and yet just a pebble’s throw from the glistening waters of Old Hunstanton.
Independent village stores, a 19th century coaching inn, quirky shops selling the finest fare and a hidden expanse of chalky grassland that was transformed by the villagers from a disused quarry into a woodland reserve that is utterly perfect for this, that and everything. Quintessential picnics, rambling walks and doorstep adventures amongst the towering beech trees and steep-sided valleys.
The History of Ringstead
Surrounded by lush coastal countryside, this medieval village hides centuries of history that remains on display to this very day.
A 13th century fairytale church, the remains of an 11th century round tower, a 17th century village pub and thirteen other listed buildings that are yours to gawp and gander at as you wander around the village in muddy wellies, gently working up an appetite before settling in for a long lunch at The Gin Trap, where they’ve been serving farmers, fisherman, traders and smugglers since 1668.
