The private walled courtyard garden is rare in old Blakeney village, Gillie is a real gem with its very private ambiance and outdoor space. And with the stable doors opening onto the courtyard from the kitchen and lounge, in the Spring and Summer, there is a lovely outdoor, Mediterranean 'vibe'. There's an outdoor garden sofa, table with lounging chairs as well as a bistro table. For the walkers there is an exterior hosepipe.
Blakeney is an all year-round holiday destination, popular with walkers, bird watchers and sailors. Families with young children can enjoy a spot of crabbing from the quay, take a boat trip out to Blakeney Point to see the seals, and explore the coastal path, marshes and nature reserves close by. If you want to leave the car behind for the day, just take the Coasthopper bus which regularly passes through the village - it will take you to all the coastal villages from Hunstanton to Cromer.
Blakeney is famous for having everything in a timeless old fashioned way. Beautiful quay with walks across the marshes or just along the quay front. Wonderful restaurants, cafes and quaint shops.
