On this a part of the world the coast and countryside are really pretty, and there are some fantastic walks available. One in every of my favourites when on a weekend break Norfolk is the stroll alongside the mud flats between Blakeney and Cley.
You can begin off from both of those fairly villages, however I choose to start in Blakeney after which stroll again alongside the street from Cley. Park close to the quayside at Blakeney (the place the little catering vans are) and spend a while admiring the boats earlier than setting off in your stroll. The stroll is sort of uncovered, so it is best to take a water-proof with you in case you get caught out by dangerous climate, nevertheless it’s a comparatively straightforward ramble and so appropriate for these of all ages. As you head out in the direction of the ocean, the view again throughout the fields in the direction of Blakeney is completely lovely and, as any customer to North Norfolk lodges will know, the windmill at Cley is a well-known native landmark, showing in numerous pictures and footage.
The stroll is comparatively simple (simply comply with the well-trodden path) and you will see walkers of all talents however, as all the time, it is best to stay to the paths as this space is residence to an abundance of wildlife and is protected by the Blakeney Level Nationwide Nature Reserve. The space from Blakeney to Cley is simply a few miles, however when you time issues proper, you can also make a day of it, stopping in Cley to browse around the delicatessen, fairly pottery, recent fish store, gallery and pub earlier than ambling again to your automotive. Sadly the windmill is not open to the general public for viewing functions, because it’s run as a B&B today, however it makes an excellent photograph, with the reed marshes in entrance of it and the fantastic massive stretch of sky behind.
