Sunday Strolls: Blakeney

The quaint village of Blakeney is alive with colour at the moment as the Hollyhocks line the winding paths, making it a perfect place to start out Sunday stroll.

Blakeney Quay

There is free parking by the village hall, sign posted and just off the coast road that is a great option to base yourself from.

First stop - COFFEE! The gorgeous new coffee shop in town, Folks, is here to help. Folks is located on Westgate St, a 3 minute walk from the car park. The guys at Folks believe coffee is best shared with friends, or friendly strangers and pride themselves on the warm and welcoming atmosphere they have created, giving you time to savour the joys of an excellent cup of coffee before heading towards the quay.

From the quay you can pick up the brilliant coast path in either direction and stroll to your heart's content, follow it far enough one way and you will reach Cley (50(ish) minute walk), far enough the other and you will reach Morston (35 minute walk). Both of which have excellent pubs - how convenient! The path is easy to follow as well as being nice and flat with beautiful views across the marshes, expect to see lots of wildlife and of course a couple of boats.

The George and the Dragon in Cley offers an outstanding Sunday roast and The Morston Anchor, owned by The Harper Hotel group offers delicious fish and chips. Both amazing options for your Sunday indulge - after all you will earn it!

Once you are full and in need of a leg stretch or a nap, you either amble on back along the coast path or catch the coast hopper back to the car, but before you get in the car I would recommend a sneaky trip to Two Magpies Bakery on the quay front, just for a little sweet treat - I challenge you to walk in there and not come out with at least twice as many items as you went in for.

This Sunday stroll has it all, great coffee, great views, great food.
