Blakeney with its harbour, marshes and stunning scenery is a hotspot for a great coastal holiday. From the doorstep of the cottage there are several places to eat; a local delicatessen, a general store and the North Norfolk Coastal path can be picked up from the quayside, which is great for birdwatching and walking. The two mile walk to Morston on the coastal path with lunch at The Anchor is a lovely way to spend the day as is a trip to see the local seal colony at Blakeney Point. The village also has some interesting art galleries, gift shops and The Blakeney Harbour Rooms has a growing reputation for showcasing some good tribute bands. This stunning diverse coast is recognised as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and if you want to leave the car behind it can be easily accessed on the local Coast Hopper bus service, which can take you east as far as Cromer and west to Hunstanton. There are fantastic sandy beaches at Wells-next-the-Sea and Holkham with beautiful Holkham Hall and deer park also in the village, both a short drive away. In the summer visit Wiveton Hall - now a well know landmark following the BBC's Normal for Norfolk programme. Stop in the cafe to admire the beautiful marsh views with a cup of tea and pick your own raspberries and strawberries from the fruit farm - it's all normal for Norfolk!
