The dog walks around the cottage are wonderful and the beach is only 2 miles away at Sheringham.

On Saturday, either walk on the beach, relax around the cottage or do a little bit of shopping.

Sunday is the time to take advantage of the local pub (The Wheatsheaf). After a morning walk and collecting the paper from Bodham, settle down in front of SKY TV and RELAX. About 12.30pm walk down to the pub, across the fields, for Sunday Lunch and a bottle of something, wander back from the Pub for yet more RELAXATION in front of the TV (and open fire in the Winter).
The Thursford Christmas Spectacular, 12 miles from the cottage, is the biggest and most exciting Christmas show of all time in Britain. Experience the popular blend of Christmas entertainment, with dazzling dancers, beautiful costumes, Christmas songs, carols, including outstanding music and singing from our cast of over one hundred.
Teddy's Retreat is a great location for shopping(!) with Norwich just 25 minutes away and it goes without saying the Christmas shop in Holt (open all year) is a must. Norwich is perfect for some serious shopping!

BLAKENEY NATIONAL NATURE RESERVE
One of the largest expanses of undeveloped coastal habitats of its type in Europe, Blakeney National Nature Reserve extends to 1,097 hectares, almost all of which is within the ownership of the National Trust. It includes Blakeney Point, Blakeney Freshes, Morston and Stiffkey Marshes and supports a wide range of coastal plant communities with many nationally important species.
Blakeney Point itself is a 3 mile long sand and shingle spit, noted for its colonies of breeding terns and migrant birds passing through. Both common and grey seals can also be seen. An information centre at Morston Quay provides further details on the area.
Highlights: Twite, snow bunting and shore larks, tern colonies with little, common, sandwich and arctic terns, ringed plover, oystercatcher, shelduck, brent geese, common and grey seals.
SEALS at Blakeney
There are both common & grey seals at Blakeney, usually numbering around 500. Common seals drop their pups between June and August, and the greys give birth later in the year between November and January.
There are boat trips (Usually from April - October) to see the seals; the trips last for about 1 hour.
Location: Blakeney National Nature Reserve is situated mid-way between the towns of Wells-next-the-sea and Sheringham. Access to the site is by ferry from Morston and Blakeney (both on the A149), or by foot from Cley Beach 5.5 km away..
