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.


Thank you for a fab few days in your beautiful cottage. We immediately felt at home and it was the perfect place to meet up with all the family. Great walks, glorious weather – the dog loved it too. Nov’ 2018

Many thanks for a lovely and comfortable stay. Our 3 year old really enjoyed playing with the toys and we made the bunk room a playroom – fantastic. Perfect place for the dog too. September 2018

We have had a wonderful time staying in your beautiful house. The kids especially loved having their own room to play in. Such a perfect location with beautiful places to visit. – Thank you; it’s the finishing touches which make it special. August 2018

Thank you for such a comfortable, well catered house. A real feel of staying in your home rather than a holiday let; foodies as we are, we enjoyed your kitchen. The children loved your comfy beds and playing in the garden after a long day on the beach. July 2018

Thank you J & T for such a happy weekend in Cley. Such a perfect spot, kindest wishes. May 2018
