Norfolk is the largest county in the region of East Anglia, and is well known for its flat landscape.  It is the most significant of the English counties that the students in Never Let Me Go are taught about, in terms of both its role in the narrative and its thematic relevance.  As Miss Emily says, it is a peaceful, slightly disconnected area, having neither motorways nor high speed railways.
