The East Anglia region
North Norfolk is known for its big blue sky, large expanses of salt and fresh water marshes, great local produce including Cromer crabs, Thornham oysters, Brancaster mussels and Sheringham lobsters and samphire.
From Hunstanton to the west to Cromer to the east, the North Norfolk coast and hinterland is a fabulous place to visit whether your interests are sailing, fishing, bird-watching, visiting famous properties run by English Heritage or The National Trust such as Blickling Hall or other more independent estates such as Sandringham or Holkham Hall.
Whatever you enjoy you are likely to be able to indulge it in North Norfolk even if it's just sitting and watching the world go by.
You may enjoy visiting the various Burnhams, such as Burnham Thorpe, the birthplace of Nelson, the dinghy sailing mecca of Burnham Overy Staithe or the shopping in Burnham Market - known by locals as Chelsea-By-Sea or similar. In fact a good game for young and old is trying to list all the Burnhams!
From cafes, fish & chip shops and small eating places along the coast to plusher Michelin restaurants eating-out is a pleasure especially as so many places offer good locally sourced food such as Cromer crabs and samphire in the summer, Brancaster mussels in the winter and other delights such as organically grown produce or organically-raised livestock.
Life is run at a slower pace in North Norfolk possibly helped by a lack of motorways. Driving on the Coast road requires a little bit more patience than normal - so just remember - you're on holiday!
Blakeney is an old traditional fishing village with a picturesque quay known by children (and adults) as being a great place to go crabbing. An area of outstanding natural beauty consisting of fresh and salt-water marshes, long expanses of beach it is a favoured location for many holidaymakers.
Blakeney is full of old flint-faced cottages based around a narrow winding High Street. The roads around the quay are off the coast road so the only traffic is that coming into the village.
Tickets for seal trips are sold in Blakeney although most trips go from Morston although there are a few that depart from Blakeney quay but this is dependent on the tides. When tides are high it is quite spectacular as the sea will overlap the quay and cover the road. You may be lucky to experience a really high tide and see a boat sailing along the road!
Along the coastal road from Blakeney are a number of other old coastal villages such as Cley-next-the-Sea, Morston, Stiffkey and Salthouse. Larger, more traditional seaside towns are about twenty minutes away by car or bus at Wells-next-the-Sea to the west and Sheringham to the east.
Inland there are a number of beautiful villages close by that are worth exploring including, Langham, Binham and Saxlingham,
The nearby town of Holt is a Georgian gem full of great shops - mostly independents - in fact apart from Boots and Fat Face there aren't, to our knowledge, any other chains present.
Blakeney is one of the Glaven ports that, in the past, comprised the 8th largest port in England - they even sent a boat to fight the Spanish armada! Those glory days are now in the past leaving Blakeney to be a beautiful place to take a truly relaxing holiday.

Our party consisted of three couples - one in 90s, one in 80s and one in 50s/60s. The cottage proved to be a good size - the main living room is very spacious, something that is not necessarily apprec… More
Thanks for your kind review of both Stable Cottage and also aspects of North Norfolk. One doesn't work without the other. We're pleased we were able to deal with the minor hiccup so quickly and appreciated you letting us know immediately.
We're pleased to read your comment about the spaciousness of the living room which is something we know but is hard to convey.
Thanks again for your kind comments and hope to see you in the future.

"Lovely cottage in great location"
We are a family of four (two adults, a four year old and a one year old) and stayed in the cottage with my Dad, who slept upstairs (the upstairs bedroom is perfect for grandparents/extended family). T… More
Thanks for a great review. We are really pleased you enjoyed your stay and, even in April, the weather was good enough to enjoy sitting outside in the loke. We tend to forget that there are gates which create a safe environment for young children to play safely so thanks for pointing that out. Thanks again and we look forward to you staying again in the future.

"A delightful week in a very comfortable cottage"
The four of us - my husband & I, plus my parents - had a very enjoyable stay here. The cottage is very well equipped and decorated, in a quiet location a couple of minutes walk from the sea, two exce… More
Thank you for your great review. It's nice to hear that you enjoyed the places we recommended for evening meals (The Moorings and The White Horse) both just a few steps from the cottage. We think the welcome pack from the Blakeney Deli is a good way to welcome guests to the cottage and it is nice to know it is appreciated. Thanks again and we hope to see you again at the cottage. Best wishes, Hilary & Richard, Stable Cottage Blakeney.

"Charming cottage ideally located in the heart of Blakeney"
We stayed here with our 3 daughters (12, 8 and 6). The cottage was ideal, well equipped and comfortable with plenty of space. Being so central in Blakeney was fabulous and with the cottage being set b… More
We're really pleased you enjoyed your stay at Stable Cottage and thank you for a great review. We think the cottage is ideally located being just off the High Street and close to the quay and we're glad you agree. We have found it very difficult to get a good set of pictures together so we weren't surprised that you commented that the pictures don't do the cottage justice.
Thanks again and we look forward to you staying again in the future, Hilary & Richard

"Gorgeous cottage in an excellent location"
My husband, twin girls and I stayed at the cottage with my parents for a weekend get together. We had a wonderful time my children didn't want to leave. The cottage has a very homely feel and i… More
We're really pleased that you enjoyed your stay at the cottage and that your twins liked it so much they didn't want to leave. We hope they got to do a little crabbing down on the quay as it just takes a couple of minutes to walk there even with young children. We have always thought the Deli is a great asset being so close to the cottage and are pleased you liked it.
Thanks for a great review and look forward to you staying again.

Hi Kate & Wes,
Thank you for your really nice comments in our visitors' book and in this review. We are really pleased you liked the cottage as we have put quite a bit of effort into it so it is nice to hear it is appreciated. We like to help local businesses so it was nice to hear that the Blakeney Deli welcome pack went down well.
Thanks again & hope to see you in the future,

Hi Emma, thanks for your kind review. We were pleased that you had such a good time and found that Stable Cottage was right for you and your family. We enjoyed Grace's review in our Visitor's book especially that there were too many ducks to count. From the sound of it your hubbie had a great birthday and we look forward to you all staying in the future.
Thanks again, Hilary & Richard

"Lovely cottage, well located in a charming town"
We had a very enjoyable stay - the cottage is well presented with good facilities, including good broadband and telephone. The deli is just a few doors away and has lots to offer, the seal trips from … More
Thank you for a lovely review and pointing out the good broadband service we have (for a small coastal village). Things are even better if you have Vodafone 3G as the White Horse next door and other buildings in Blakeney have mobile signal boosters.
As you note, it is great we are so close to the Deli as it means croisants and coffee are just a few steps away.
We are pleased you enjoyed our cottage and look forward to welcoming you again in the near future.

It's great to hear that you all enjoyed your stay at Stable Cottage Blakeney and that everything was to your liking. It really is great having the Deli just 50m away.
