The North Norfolk Coast is a popular area for those looking for a typically english seaside holiday. This area of the British coastline is one of the most diverse in the country. The terrain ranges from the salt marshes of Morston and Stiffkey to the shingle shoreline of Salthouse and from the long white sandy beach at Holkham to the grassy dunes of Brancaster. It is hard to find a better place to spend a holiday in the UK.
It is best to stay in a Blakeney hotel or hotel in a nearby village for those hoping to make the most of this wonderful coastline. Blakeney village could almost be mistaken for a medieval film set with its chocolate-box flint cottages and stunning view of the sea over the marshes. Cley-Next-The-Sea is only a few minutes down the road and is an equally quaint story-book seaside village. It is also home to one of the best hotels in the area – The George Hotel at Cley.
Blakeney Point is a favourite bird sanctuary of ornithologists across Europe, with many species arriving to spend winter on UK shores. It is also home to families of grey and common seals which can be seen resting along the coast line. There are so many interesting places to visit around the area. The Norfolk Broads, Blickling Estate, Holkham Hall, Burnham Market, Norwich and King’s Lynn are just a few and are all close by.
The hotels in Blakeney and nearby are all extremely welcoming and comfortable. The George Hotel at Cley is one such hotel. All the staff are Norfolk born and bred and are full to the brim with knowledge about what to do and where to go. The food is made with fresh and locally sourced ingredients and a pint of beer there has been described as one of the best pints in the area. The bedrooms have all been recently refurbished, individually and sumptuously styled and equipped to a high standard. This hotel is a beautiful hotel with an historic bar and exceptional views over the salt mashes of Cley-Next-The-Sea. Well worth a visit.
