West Runton Holiday Cottages
The village of West Runton, situated on the northern coast of Norfolk, is most famous for its dinosaur-age discovery. The fossils of a steppe mammoth were discovered here by a schoolchild in 1990. The fossils date back to the Ice Age and are one of the oldest fossilised creatures ever found. Thanks to this find, West Runton beach is now a Site of Special Scientific Interest.
The nearby Cromer Museum has a display of the steppe mammoth fossils and the area attracts many archaeological enthusiasts. Holiday cottages in West Runton are very popular, especially with families that have dinosaur-mad children. West Runton has all the charm of village life as well as a fantastic beach for dog walking, wading through rock pools, and fossil hunting.
