Swashbuckling Blakeney

Blakeney might not be the bustling port it was in the Middle Ages, but that's probably good news for travellers looking for a taste of English heritage and seaside charm. Some say that the locals of this little Norfolk town dabbled in piracy in the 12th century, while today they're more concerned with knocking back real ale in the pubs and pointing out the most beautiful spots on the North Norfolk Coast Path. Blakeney holiday rentals certainly won't disappoint, either. They range from huge country lodges with 10-plus rooms to cosy seaside boltholes for a romantic stint by the sea.

Things to do

Norfolk heritage in Blakeney

You can go back in time in Blakeney. Navigate the steps to the shadowy vaults of the English Heritage-run Blakeney Guildhall. Down there, between the alcoves and arches, it's easy to imagine you're a 15th-century merchant or smuggler fresh from the high seas. More living history can be witnessed as you walk the quays of the silted harbourside, while a visit to the town of Weybourne will reveal the private Muckleburgh Military Collection, one of the UK's largest independently owned arrays of guns and other modern weaponry – you can even book to drive a tank…

Activities

A salty safari in Blakeney

Seek out the cosy little barn conversions and Blakeney holiday rentals along the Norfolk coast if you're eager for a slice of salt-washed safari in these parts. There's loads of spotting to be done. Just take Blakeney National Nature Reserve, where colonies of seals and their white-haired pups languish on the rocky shores. Then there's the greater Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, opening up wide vistas of wave-lashed bays and sands. Walkers can join the long Norfolk Coast Path to visit nearby towns like Wells-next-the-Sea and Burnham Overy Staithe – charming fishing villages with pubs and tearooms.

Weather

Ciders under the sun in Blakeney

Winters in Blakeney are only for the bravest of walkers. The North Sea is wild between November and March, the air is cold and the wind is strong, meaning you'll have to withstand the elements if you choose to visit then. Much better is a trip in the summer, between June and August. Granted, that's when most people are seeking out the coveted Blakeney holiday rentals by the sea. But it's also when you can enjoy the local pub gardens and cliff walks with the promise of sun and warm weather.

Natural features

The seals and seas of Blakeney

Blakeney is hidden in a wreath of protected reserves and parks. The Norfolk Coast AONB and the Norfolk Heritage Coast claim it as one of their own, which means long stretches of pristine English seashore – think wave-smashed cliffs and wide bays of beige-brown sand and dune. The namesake Blakeney National Nature Reserve is also just to the west. It's home to winding water channels of mud and silt, finally edging into the North Sea at Blakeney Point. That's the place to go to see seals and seal pups basking near the rollers.
