Tila
ūüßö‚Äć‚ôāÔłŹBuilt in 1850 as a fisherman‚Äôs dwelling, Grebe cottage in Cley-Next-the-Sea, has retained many of it‚Äôs original features whilst having had important modern updates installed like high speed fibre optic WiFi, a very good central heating system and double glazing throughout. The upstairs consists of a double room with king-sized bed and far reaching views over the reed beds of Cley and a large twin room with pretty views over a quaint part of the high street. All three beds are in a classic French oak design by ‚ÄėLoaf‚Äô with beautiful linen headboards and really comfy mattresses. The bathroom is also upstairs with a bath and shower and is freshly decorated with original photography by local artist Al Waters.ūüėć

ūüĆąDownstairs you will find a lovely, semi open-plan sitting room and kitchen as well as the pretty and light entrance hall. The kitchen, still supported with it‚Äôs original beams, has a fantastic Blomberg washer/dryer as well as a Nespresso machine, state of the art ‚Äė40 second‚Äô kettle and many other cool and colourful amenities!‚≠źÔłŹ

ūüć≠The sitting-room is filled with modern French and Scandinavian furniture and boasts a 40‚ÄĚ flat screen T.V with a full range of Sky channels including Sky Sports. We are also proud of our fibre optic, high-speed WiFi which not many people have in the area and which makes a big difference as mobile reception is pretty poor in North Norfolk!ūüĆĽ

ūüöėThe cottage benefits from its own, covered off street parking space which is gold-dust in Cley, especially in high season. The exterior of the cottage is painted in Farrow and Ball ‚Äėsetting plaster‚Äô which is similar to the classic Norfolk and Suffolk pink of 1850. ūüćÄ

ūüéąThe whole cottage is newly decorated and kitted out with a really effective heating system and great double glazing insulation. It really is warm and cosy all year round!ūüćŹ

ūü¶čThe cottage can also be booked in conjunction with our sister cottage listed as Heart of Cley which is the adjoining property. This would give you 4 bedrooms (sleeping 8) as well as 3 bathrooms, 2 kitchens and 2 off street parking spaces.ūüćď

Vieraan pääsy
Guests have sole access to the entire property and the allocated parking space during their stay.

Muuta huomioitavaa
There is no smoking permitted at the cottage. Pets are very welcome at Grebe and at our sister property next door, *Mallard Cottage*.

We ask that people with children ensure that all due care is taken. We have had a couple of incidents of colouring pens and pencils on the walls and wallpaper...

We ask that you leave the cottage as you found it, there is no need to strip beds and please don’t feel you need to fold used towels as it helps to know which towels have been used. Thank you!

Cley next the Sea, Englanti, Britannia

Cley-next-the-Sea is one of the prettiest villages on the North Norfolk coast. It is on the River Glaven 4 mi (6 km) north-west of Holt (3 miles) and east of Blakeney (2 miles). It lies within the Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the North Norfolk Heritage Coast between the villages of Wiveton and Salthouse.

A few suggestions of things to do in and around Cley...

The Wiveton Café is a must and is now open in winter as well having previously been solely open in spring and summer. It’s about a 15 minute walk or 3 minute drive from the cottage. Do check out their website.

Artemis Cafe in Cley is always a good place from which to start a walk. turn right and right out of the cottage, it's about a 20 second walk away. They serve delicious coffee, cake, sausage rolls and salmon bagels directly behind Mallard Cottage and the famous coastal walk along the wall starts from their garden.

The George in Cley does really good food, has really friendly staff and is about a two minute walk from the cottage.

Picnic Fayre in Cley, less than a minute's walk from Mallard, is a fantastic deli with masses of locally sourced treats and depending on the season they serve really good homemade ice cream from a little hatch in the wall.

Blakeney is about an 8 minute drive away or a beautiful hour and a bit long walk along the river wall. I never feel as if I've really had my 'Cley time' until I've done that walk. You don't need to go all the way if you're not big walkers but the look of the landscape and sky change almost hourly and and we never get bored of it.

Cley beach is accessible by car (2 mins) or on foot (8-10 mins) if you turn left out of the cottage and through the village, past the windmill and you'll see signs for where to follow the path to Cley beach (also photographed with the images of the cottage).


The Blakeney Hotel is probably the most 'get dressed up' place locally, although I have to admit we've never been as we never bring anything approaching the right wardrobe with us... It does look lovely and it has a good reputation and apparently stunning views.

The White Horse also has a good reputation and is popular, with good food. I actually prefer the Anchor at Morston next to Blakeney. Blakeney is lovely and definitely worth a visit but it can be seriously packed with day-trippers in high season so at the risk of sounding like a snob, it's better to be a bit outside it and Cley is a much nicer place to stay...

Morston and Blakeney also offer Seal trips which are really fun to do depending on the season so it's worth looking on local websites. 'Beans' seal trips is one of the companies.

The Cley Smokehouse directly opposite the cottage serves amazing sea food. People travel from miles around to stock up on their crab and their fish soup so we are very lucky (it's pictured in the view from the twin room in the pics of the cottage).

There are galleries and a lovely pottery and book shop in Cley, plenty of shops and galleries in Blakeney and some of the best birdwatching in Britain at Cley Spy and in Salthouse which is the next village in the other direction from Wiveton and Blakeney (turn left for Salthouse, in the same direction as you walk for the beach). There's also a great pub in Salthouse called the Dunn Cow with fantastic views across the marshes from the large garden and good food.

For Bird Watchers the cutting-edge, sustainable visitor centre at Norfolk Wildlife Trust's Cley Marshes Nature Reserve is a must. It has it's own café and some of the best bird watching in the country.

The Coast hopper bus has bus stops in both directions from outside Picnic Fayre (about a one minute walk from the Cottage). It runs a good and regular service although personally I prefer to walk as much as possible and everything I have mentioned is walking distance, obviously depending on what you consider walking distance to be/if you have toddlers etc.

The marshes around Cley are internationally important for their populations of rare breeding and visiting birds. Cley Marshes bird reserve has been in the care of the Norfolk Wildlife Trust since 1926, making it the oldest county Wildlife Trust reserve in Britain. Among resident breeding birds are Avocet, Bearded Tit, Bittern, Marsh Harrier and Spoonbill. Winter visitors include Brent Geese, Wigeon, Pintail and many species of wading birds. Cley, like neighbouring Salthouse is ideally situated at the apex of the North Norfolk coast as a staging ground for passage migrants, vagrants and rareties of all kinds. An eco-friendly visitor centre opened in 2007 containing a café, shop, viewing areas (including viewing from a camera on the reserve), exhibition area, interpretation and toilets. The view from the visitor centre across the Marsh to the sea is breathtaking. Cley Marshes is the home of the Bird Information Service, publishers of Birding World. The shingle bank holds large numbers of Yellow Horned Poppy.


The Grade I listed medieval church of St Margaret's, Cley is the largest church in the Blakeney area dating from (phone number hidden)


Cley was once one of the busiest ports in England, where grain, malt, fish, spices, coal, cloth, barley and oats were exported or imported. The many Flemish gables in the town are a reminder of trade with the Low Countries. Some of the buildings that once lined the quay remain, notably the 18th-century Cley Windmill which was used as a backdrop of the 1949 film Conspirator with Elizabeth Taylor. Cley Mill has often been depicted by local artists and was the subject of a painting by the 20th century English landscape artist, Rowland Hilder.

In the late 19th century Cley became a holiday resort. The poet Rupert Brooke was staying in Cley when news came that Britain had entered what was to become the First World War. Brooke had dreamt about the war and woke to find it a reality. He did not speak to his hosts all day until his host said, "But Rupert, you won't have to fight?" to which Brooke replied, "We shall all have to fight".

We hope you will go ahead and book! I’m sure you’ll love Cley as we do!
