Set within a stunning Grade II listed former granary barn, this very special home offers effortlessly stylish and refined living space that perfectly embraces its cherished coastal position.

There are two double bedrooms to the ground floor, one with a luxurious en-suite and the other with bi-fold doors giving access to the courtyard garden.
The entire first floor is dedicated to a sumptuous principal bedroom suite, which, thanks to its own balcony terrace, has commanding views of Blakeney Quay, the Pit and the saltmarshes beyond.
Located within a protected National Nature Reserve and a designated area of outstanding natural beauty, this very special place holds a long-standing local provenance and is home to a diverse marine wildlife thanks to its unique habitats. The quay connects miles of fascinating saltmarshes, mud banks and winding creeks to the pretty village of Blakeney to create a truly unique environment.

BLAKENEY It would be hard to find a spot which reflects the beauty of the Norfolk coast better than Blakeney. Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, its picture perfect location is made for Instagram-worthy shots of moored boats on mud flats, under big blue skies.
When the tide's touching the shoreline, untie your laces and dip your toes in, take the plunge or push off with a slow drift along coastal inlets on a paddleboard or boat to lose yourself in nature's finest backdrop. Forage some samphire for a taste of the coast, try your hand at catching a crab on the quay, or join the tourists and take a boat trip with Bean's to spot the seals bobbing along on the water.
Despite the relaxed scene, Blakeney was once a bustling medieval port and the village's Guildhall and Church of St Nicholas are evidence of its rich, trading past which continued until the mid-19th century. As ships grew in size and the harbour silted up, trade fell away and today only small boats can pass Blakeney Point and head out to sea. Today, the nature reserve surrounding Blakeney Point is owned by the National Trust and thousands of nesting and migratory birds provide a twitcher's paradise where the tweets are tech-free.
Peace and, if you seek it, solitude are easily found in Blakeney, but if you are looking for company there are plenty of places to meet and make friends. With Buoy Cafe, Blakeney Deli and the Two Magpies Bakery and Cafe on the quay a morning coffee and a croissant is hard to resist. The Moorings Bistro, The White Horse and, for a fancy supper, The Blakeney Hotel are iconic spots to eat. Wiveton Hall Fruit Farm Caf頭 famed by owner Desmond MacCarthy's Normal for Norfolk BBC series - is a great summer destination.
Teeming with character, there are plenty of pretty brick and flint fishermen's cottages in hollyhock-lined lanes, known locally as lokes, leading off the high street, along with incredible coastal family houses and stunning new developments. Blakeney truly is a place to discover your next Norfolk home.
