Cley-next-the-Sea is a pretty, unspoilt coastal village on the beautiful North Norfolk coast, an area of outstanding natural beauty. Once a significant port on the Glaven Estuary, the village is now a mecca for birdwatchers with the award winning Bird Reserve at Cley Marshes nearby. The village is exceptionally well served with two pubs, both serving food, a smokehouse, delicatessen, bookshop, gallery and café – all within walking distance.

The pretty Georgian market town of Holt, with its shops, restaurants and galleries is four miles away. The beautiful sandy beaches at Wells-next-the-Sea and Holkham are within easy reach. There is lots to see and do in the area – sailing at Morston, Blakeney and Wells, crabbing at Blakeney, seal trips from Morston to Blakeney Point, golf at Sheringham, eating out at good local restaurants including Michelin starred Morston Hall.

Simply had a wonderful Christmas in your lovely cottage. Great walks along the beach, with seals bobbing up. December 2017
