Cottages in Cley

This once busy port on the North Norfolk Coast is a haven for birds, flora and fauna with the shingle beach being popular for sea fishing.

The village is dominated by the restored windmill which presides over the marshes and village with a magnificent medieval church on the village green. Bird watchers flock to the area as Cley Marshes is the oldest wildlife reserve in Norfolk and home to many migrating birds as well as waders, Bitterns, Marsh Harriers and Bearded Tits. The quiet village boasts a smoke house, tea rooms, delicatessen and a traditional pub, perfect after a busy day twitching.

Catch a boat from nearby Morston to Blakeney Point to watch the seals and explore the National Nature Reserve. Hire a canoe at Blakeney and paddle up a creek or try crabbing from the quay. Nearby Cromer is a Victorian seaside town ideal for a day at the beach, chips for supper and the end of pier summer show. For shopping try the Georgian town of Holt for an eclectic selection of shops and tearooms. For more choice there is the historic City of Norwich with its castle, cathedral and bustling shopping centre only a 30-minute drive away.
