to see and do
Blakeney is located on the North Norfolk Coast, just North of the
small, Georgian, market town of Holt with its wonderful selection
of art galleries, individual shops and restaurants.
This part of the coastline has been designated an Area of Outstanding
Natural Beauty and the marshes and wide open spaces around Blakeney
make it a haven for migratory birds and wildlife and, of course,
a fantastic place for walkers and bird-watchers alike.
“Foodies” will not be disappointed with the excellent
choice of restaurants in the area - most notably Morston Hall -
which has achieved a worthy Michelin star rating and is only a mile
away (book in advance!).

The village has a strong identity, and is a thriving and active
community with a small supermarket, fantastic delicatessen, fishmongers,
chandlers, a post office and a range of interesting and eclectic
shops. Mix this with great pubs and restaurants serving local beers
and seafood and you might never want to leave.
