The fishing port of Blakeney seems to have stepped straight out of a time warp. With its centuries old stone-built promenade and a mass of masts appearing from the harbour, the centre of town presents a magical sight. And with some of Norfolk's finest coastline stretching east and west, this delightful coastal destination is a great place to find self-catering accommodation. So launch a Norfolk adventure with Blakeney holiday cottages today.
Blakeney was once one of the busiest ports on the east coast of England, sending merchants to Russia in the 15th century. These days, other ports have stolen the town's trade, but a cluster of historical architecture reminds visitors of Blakeney's golden age. See the 500 year old Guildhall, where merchants gathered to plan their expeditions, and check out two-towered St Nicholas' Church. The seafront is full of character, with outstanding seafood eateries (and be sure to try some Blakeney crab - the town's famous speciality). Or venture a little further to stately Holkham Hall and the Victorian resort of Cromer. It's all easy with Blakeney holiday cottages.
Activities are also easy to plan from accommodation in Blakeney, and the sea takes centre stage. Join seal watching cruises in Blakeney Point Nature Reserve, hire kayaks for a closer look, or pack your binoculars for bird-watching. Head to swimmable beaches like Sheringham, play some golf nearby or at Royal Cromer, or lace up your boots and hit the coastal trail to savour the North Norfolk Area of of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Whether you want total relaxation of active breaks, Blakeney accommodation delivers.
When you stay in Blakeney, self-catering accommodation makes perfect sense. With Blakeney holiday cottages you can plan your walks on spacious tables, marking every footpath. Get friends or family together to talk about the day's adventures, clean off after days on the beach, and provide room for pets to relax after their own explorations. Space, comfort and convenience combine with holiday cottages in this exceptional destination.
