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.

Came to the cottage for my birthday. We normally stay at Wells but so glad we came here! Beautiful cottage and extremely clean and fantastic quality of items within. We will definitely revisit. The dog towel is a great idea especially at this time of year. Thank you for the wine and nibbles. That too was a lovely touch. The cottage is head and shoulders above others that are a similar size etc. Thank you for allowing us to stay and we hope to come back soon.Deborah, Neil & Ruby - 9th January 2017

Our first time away for Christmas! We've really enjoyed our stay at Middle Knoll- so comfortable, cosy - and clean. The festive touches were very much appreciated - thank you! Weather has been dry and bright, so spent much of our time walking and birdwatching - then enjoying a blazing log fire in the evening! Luxury. Better reluctantly go and finish packing. Maybe we'll be lucky enough to make a return visit in 2017.Zoe, Dave & Mango the lovebird - 28th December 2016
Thank you for a lovely stay. Your cottage is beautiful and everything is done to perfect taste. The beds are so comfortable and you have gone the extra mile with all the essentials and more. This was the relaxing walking holiday we so wanted and the perfect location on the Norfolk coast. We will definitely be back.Jamie, Wendy, Rosie & Bailee - 15th December 2016
We have had a relaxing, chilled out and calming 5 day break. The views and peacefulness is just perfect! Exactly why we needed. The cottage has been warm, cosy and welcoming. We have enjoyed our cosy nights by the fire with cheese, biscuits and wine. The walks are glorious! George the dog especially enjoyed all the freedom and wildlife! The coastal walks we will remember! Thank you for making our break just perfect!Marc, Tanya & George - 28th October 2016

An excellent week's holiday in this delightful cottage with light and airy bedroom and sunny garden. So much to do in the area and masses of birds to spot. Much looking forward to a return visit.Georgina & Richard - 30th September 2016
Have had a thoroughly enjoyable stay in Middle Knoll, one of the best equipped cottages we've ever stayed in - which is a lot! Perfect base for our favourite places (Wells, Sheringham and Holt). Absolutely love Norfolk as so dog friendly - our plan is to retire to the area - fingers crossed! We plan a return to this cottage - thank you!Sarah, Mark & Baldrick - 16th September 2016
Delightful cottage, very well equipped and tastefully furnished. Love the seagull cushions! Superb attention to detail to ensure guests stay is relaxing. Appreciated spare duvet cover and sheets on site as it was so warm didn't need the actual duvet! Dogs most appreciated beaches at Wells and Holkham. Holkham Field to Fork exhibition is actually rather good and dogs are allowed in too.Simon, Hilary, Jessie & Sam - 5th September 2016
Our second wonderful stay at Middle Knoll. We are still discovering beautiful places to walk, cycle and visit. We truly recommend the Artemis Cafe for breakfast (and cream teas actually!). Many thanks and I'm sure we will be back.Carol & Colin - 26th August 2016
Lovely cosy cottage with a fantastic enclosed garden, just right for a dog to snuffle around in and relax in the sun. Had breakfast outside 6 days out of 7! Dun Cow at Salthouse very good food and ales, gets very busy. Beach at Holkham very good. Good three mile walk to Blakeney then catch the coast hopper bus back. Holt good for independent shops. Holkham ground lovely to walk in and a very good cafe there too.Jaqui, John & Fizz - 29th July 2016
