About the Owner

We bought a holiday home in Cley when our children were small as it is an idyllic, relatively quiet part of the country. We rented this out part-time as well as used it a lot ourselves for 13 years. There are marvellous beaches, lots of sailing (and sailing courses), horse-riding and things to interest children.

We sold that house, but missed Cley so much that in 2014 we bought a sunny, smaller house with stunning views. We are very pleased to be back.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We thought the house was probably the best we have stayed in on a number of visits to Norfolk and the location superb. We walked every day except the very wet Monday. Sunday lunch at the Dun Cow - fantastic. Wiveton Bell - very good. Wiveton Farm cafe - very good. Deli - excellent local stuff. I am missing my pints of Wherry.

Excellent place to stay, quiet and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This is a very well presented property, clean and tidy with nice quality furniture and appliances. The rooms were larger then we were expecting and were light with lovely views.

Having a parking space opposite is definite bonus. It is very quiet and in easy walking distance of the village centre and marshes. Cley is a gorgeous village and we would not hesitate in booking the cottage again.

From the Owner

Cley is a really pretty coastal town in north Norfolk. It has a much photographed windmill, world renowned bird watching and a huge beach. It is also a relaxing and beautiful place to live and stay. From the front door there are excellent walks in all directions, good pubs and a short drive away, one of the best beaches in the country. Perfect for children and adults. If this is your first visit - you will return.

Activity and Interests


Cley beach is huge and runs into Blakeney Point. It is all an AONB (area of outstanding natural beauty). Our house is 15 mins walk onto the marshes and about 25 mins walk to the beach. (A 5 minute drive). Holkham beach is world class and is a 25 minute drive.


A car is not strictly necessary but very useful. There is a coastal hopper bus that goes from Sheringham station along the coast through Cley.


We are in the village. Cley has 2 pubs, an excellent deli which can provide all your eating/drinking needs, a famous smokery (fish) and a bookshop, pottery and art gallery.

Holt is 3 miles away and is one of the best country towns in Norfolk for independent shops. A delight for browsing.

From the Owner

Our house has truly beautiful views over the medieval Cley church and countryside beyond - yet is only a 15 minute walk ( 5 min cycle) to the marshes and beach beyond. It is warm, sunny and spacious for a 2 bedroom house and will make a perfect base. It also has a large private parking area - rare for Cley!

  • Notes on accommodation: This is a super sunny, light house with amazing views. All rooms are a good size and there is no cramped-cottagey feel. We just bought it summer 2014 so most furnishings are new. We use it a lot ourselves, but for now are really happy to rent it to those who are looking for something really comfortable in an idyllic, peaceful location. Cley has the contrast of the wild marshes and beach beyond and the peaceful beauty of the church and village green - both within a 15 minute walk of each other. There are 2 pubs (one a 5 min walk away), and you'll lose your heart to the deli. Also a fish smokery plus bookshop and art gallery. Outside: outside is a pretty, sheltered south east facing patio which is sunny for most of the day and has views over the church yard/church. It is surrounded by flint walls and flower/shrub borders. We have a wooden table and chairs for 6 people - perfect for eating out or reading. Utility Room: No utility room. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Linen and bath/hand towels are included in the price. (Beach towels are not)House is cleaned between each rental.
