What is there to do with the kids on the North Norfolk Coast?
Cley beach - Walk down the Coastal Path, then along the network of marsh paths through the Cley bird reserve to the beach, spotting birds all the way and then swim off the beach, collect shells and pebbles or cast your fishing rod. If you turn left on the beach and walk for an hour or two you will reach the white sands of Blakeney Point where large colonies of seals frequent. Blakeney Point has an old life boat house, now a small museum telling you a bit about this National Trust area.
Marsh Walking - Walk along the Coastal Path and there are literally miles and miles of marsh paths beautifully maintained and snaking all over the stunning local marshes unique to this part of the coast and home to many interesting birds. Most of this marsh land is owned by the Norfolk Wildlife Trust. You can walk from village to village using these paths and some beaches, there are informative signs along the way and many great places to stop and enjoy a picnic or just take in the stunning views and huge Norfolk skys.
Feed the ducks - Wild ducks and swans at Glandford Ford or rare breeds Blakeney Duck Pond, both well worth a visit.
Mud Sliding - Low tide at Blakeney and Morston offers plenty of slippery mud banks perfect for mud sliding, though we strongly advise least favourite swim wear and wash as much off in the creak as you possibly can before you leave.
Crabbling - All you need is some string and bacon rind tied on to the end and dangle in the the muddy creaks to tempt out the crabs before letting the poor creatures go again.
Church visits - St Margaret’s Church in Cley and St Nicholas in Blakeney, both walking distance and quite magnificent, well worth a visit. St Nicholas' has an old light house at one end and St Margarets, more of a cathedral that humble village church tells the tale of medieval times when Cley Port played an important role in Englands economy. Huge ships would sail in, tie up to the church wall to unload precious trading cargo.
Owl trail in Holt - Owl plaques in the pavements of Holt guide you around 24 different points of interest. Stop at the new Council Offices in historic Nelson House on White Lyon Street near the Owl Tea room and Adnams, pick up a guide book which will assist you around this Historic Georgian town. The booklet is current and up to date and it is easy to spot the points of interest. The text is full of facts and stories. Finish your walking tour with a trip to the bookshop in Appleyard where you can pick up a copy of Escapades in Holt: A fine Georgian Town and you can continue the fun following Olly the owl as he poetically explains even more about the town and its history.
Visit Baconsthorpe Castle - The other side of Holt and free to visit, not well signed but hardly ever anyone there and very peaceful and unspoilt.
Visit Binham Priory - Interesting early medieval priory, escaped the dissolution with church still used by the village.
