Blakeney

Blakeney must be one of the most sought after coastal villages in North Norfolk famed for its flint-faced cottages, sailing, crabbing and boats trips to visit the seals at the world-famous Blakeney Point.  The whole coastal area, much of it owned by The National Trust, is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, attracting both sailing enthusiasts and ornithologists; Blakeney is within easy reach of nationally important bird reserves at Blakeney point, Salthouse and Titchwell.

 

There are many enjoyable local walks, along the coast to Morston or Cley or inland to Wiveton Downs. The village retains a unique atmosphere with many of the old mariners’ and merchants’ houses remaining in its narrow streets with others tucked away in flint walled characterful alleyways teeming with hollyhocks each summer.  The main High Street runs down to the Quay with its salt marsh and channels, with Blakeney Point beyond.  Beaches made famous by Gwyneth Paltrow in the film 'Shakespeare in Love' lie within 10 minutes’ drive and Michelin starred restaurants epitomise the delightful experiences that await discovery in this unspoilt and quite magical area.
