With beach and bird reserve just a 20 minute walk there is plenty to keep you occupied in this stunning location. The popular Wiveton Hall and farm shop is definitely ‘Normal for Norfolk’ and within easy reach of Cley, just a mile along the coast and well worth a visit.

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.
