Blakeney is a picturesque village on the northern coast of Norfolk and offers a wonderful choice of places to eat and drink. The village is known for its 8th century windmill, a historic quay, a 13th century church and a variety of independent shops and art galleries. Blakeney National Nature Reserve features a variety of seabirds and wildlife, and you can take a boat trip from Blakeney Point out to see a colony of grey seals.

A very comfortable and ideally located Cottage.Stunning views of the harbour and out to sea, from the master bedroom window. Within 2 minutes of great places to eat, especially the Moorings. An excellent deli just up the road and a mini market and post office a few minutes away.

Superb location with great views. This is a lovely cottage which is looked after and maintained well.

Comfortable and very well located property for views of and access to the estuary and proximity to several reasonable eateries.

Reviewed by Peter 16th August 2019

A delightful, well-appointed and beautifully-positioned cottage, with views over the Blakeney harbour and salt marshes towards the North Sea. Not really suitable for persons with mobility difficulties on account of the steep and curving stairs, but in all other respects a perfect holiday cottage

Reviewed by Geraldine 26th July 2019

Beautiful period cottage, sympathetically decorated and furnished with super views over the river and coast. Central position in Blakeney close to excellent restaurants. Loved everything about it including the quirky almost spiral staircase.

Reviewed by Norman 15th June 2019

Beautiful cottage, superb location but unsuitable (because of stairs) for many disabled people. Prior notice would have been useful.

Reviewed by Amanda 7th June 2019

Lovely little comfortable cottage. Storage heaters, so plan to be warm. Staircase is very steep and some treads uneven. Sea views are wonderful.

Reviewed by Hilary 3rd June 2019

Location is lovely with stunning views. Downstairs really comfortable. The only downside is that the stairs are really steep.

Reviewed by Jenny 5th April 2019

we have stayed at Admirals in the past. The changes made ie the log fire are great. Downstairs is very comfortable to meet the rather high price there is some comfort lacking in the bed and bedding

Reviewed by Valerie 15th March 2019

Beautifully appointed flint cottage in a perfect location overlooking Blakeney Quay. Very comfortable with excellent facilities, including 2 bathrooms and a log burning stove.
