A Great British Staycation

Benbow Cottage, Blakeney, Norfolk

The lowdown North Norfolk has a stunning coastline with almost deserted, sandy beaches that go on for miles and miles, lots of fun activities and a huge choice of places to eat. One of our favourite places is Blakeney, a quaint coastal village with magnificent views across the estuary and salt marshes. Stay in Grade II-listed Benbow Cottage, which has recently been renovated into a stylish, modern, luxury home, while retaining a very cosy feel. It is situated in the High Street, a mere stone’s throw from the quay, local shops, restaurants and pubs, so everything is conveniently on your doorstep. Don’t miss a boat trip from the harbour to see the seal colony at Blakeney Point – a real hit with the kids. And there are tons of other activities available close by to suit all ages – watersports, crabbing, cycling, sailing, tennis. The perfect getaway.

The details Sleeps eight. Two nights from £475, or £395 for reduced occupancy. To book, email [email protected] or visit www.blakeneyboutiquecottages.com
