Season: summer

Located between Happisburgh and Sea Palling, Cart Gap is a long, sandy beach, with groynes guiding you to the sea.  The narrow lane that leads here sets the scene, a rural escape and a place to recharge batteries.  This is a popular spot for walkers and their dogs, who are welcome all year round.  After a bracing walk, in either direction as far as you’d like, there’s a cafe set back on the same lane, where there’s welcome refreshment.  In short, this is an unspoilt natural environment that many people build into the rhythm of their day.

    It means a lot of things but a few things that really pop into my head are…. wild, nature, life, longevity, stress-free, clear, empty and simple.
