It is both family and dog-friendly and there are lovely scenic walks along the promenade.

    Glandford is a pretty little hamlet sitting between the larger villages of Wiveton and Letheringsett.

There are many footpaths that will take you either towards the coast or inland towards the fabulous Georgian market town of Holt.

  • Kelling


    This beautiful little village, also referred to as Lower Kelling or Low Kelling, is a peaceful and private holiday destination. We have some spectacular holiday cottages with multiple bedrooms on offer, which are ideal for larger families or group getaways with friends.

  • Blakeney


    The lovely coastal village of Blakeney is one of the most enchanting on the north Norfolk coast. Blakeney started life as a busy medieval commercial port until the estuary began to silt up, preventing all but pleasure craft from gaining access. The silting has left a fascinating landscape of marshes, sand hills and mud banks, with many creeks and channels twisting and turning their way through the countryside. The village is set within a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and home to hundreds of breeds of migrating birds, as well as a large common and grey seal colony at Blakeney Point.

  • Cley


    Cley-next-the-Sea is a picturesque village on the North Norfolk coast, situated in the heart of the designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Cley (pronounced 'Cly') is just 1 mile east of Blakeney and 4 miles north of Holt on the coastal road between Wells and Sheringham. Well known for its windmill and magnificent church, Cley is also home to the Norfolk Wildlife Trust’s Cley Marshes nature reserve, which has achieved international repute as a premier birdwatching site. Along with its art and craft galleries, specialist food shops and welcoming hostelries and cafes it is no wonder Cley is popular with visitors all year round.
