Cley-next-the-Sea is a charming, small coastal village with an international reputation for its nearby bird reserve and the salt marshes that run along this stretch of the coast. The marshes and reserve have been in the care of the Norfolk Wildlife Trust since 1926, making it the oldest wildlife reserve in the UK.  The village has a good pub, a brilliant delicatessen, a smokehouse, art gallery, pottery, magnificent 14th Century church and an iconic windmill that is a landmark for this part of the coast and where you can dine in the evenings.  Other lovely villages to explore along the coast are Blakeney and Morston, where you can catch a trip to see the seals, Wells-next-the-Sea with its wide, sandy beaches, pine wood walks and small gauge steam railway and take a day to visit the historic seat of the Earls of Leicester at Holkham with its deer park, great house and superb beach.  The lovely Georgian town of Holt is nearby and another good day out with its eclectic mix of independent shops, art and antique galleries, bars and cafes.

Thank you for a lovely stay in a beautiful property in a beautiful location. The service as always second to none and the property was just as described. We will be back!Mr James Ellis - 9th November 2018
Lovely property, perfect for a restful family holiday in a lovely village. Mrs Faye Draper - 2nd January 2018
Norfolk has been my favourite area to visit from a child and I cannot see that changing in the future. There are lots of fantastic eating places, beaches are second to none although the tide must be watched. With many places to visit there needn't be a dull moment. The School House was very well equipped and as a group of gourmets who love cooking we found the facilities more than adequate for our gourmet nights in. If we had to find in any small way it would be that the sofa was so soft that we found it difficult getting out of it - or was that the wine!!!. Thank you and I am sure we will return.Mrs Jacqui MOLE - 23rd September 2017
This is a charming cottage, perfect for hanging out with family. Handy location for Cley shops and walks from the doorstep.Ms D Nieland - 10th April 2017
Cley is a great place to stay,with local transport every hour on the Coast hopper. It's near a very good deli and plenty of good food pubs only 5mins away by car. This was a large house, good for family get together. Amazing Norfolk skies, beaches and birds galore.mrs lynda hammond - 26th March 2017
