The wildlife spotting opportunities abound in and around Blakeney, which is set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Keep your eyes peeled for waders, barn owls, marsh harriers, bearded tits, hares and deer. The quay is a great place to learn to catch the local crabs and try your hand at ‘gillying’ and the place to launch sailing and pleasure craft.

With parking directly outside the cottage, make sure you leave the car behind for a day, pull on your walking boots, step outside and walk the coastal path.
