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.
