Fakenham has been voted the 7th best place to live in Britain by Country Life magazine. The countryside and coast of North Norfolk are stunning and on your doorstep. It’s a well-located market town in Norfolk, 19 miles to Cromer or King’s Lynn, and just 25 miles to the county capital of Norwich, repeatedly voted one of the best cities to live and work in across the UK, with a mainline train service to London.
