The Moorings Restaurant, Blakeney, North Norfolk

Pudding Cottage is ideally situated for the very best that North Norfolk has to offer. The picturesque coastal villages of Blakeney, Cley-next-the-sea, Morston and Wells-next-the-sea are not much more that 10 minutes from the cottage.

This beautiful corner of North Norfolk has something for everyone and here are just a few of our favorite places…


The North Norfolk coastline has some of the best beaches in Britain, during the summer months the beach at Wells-next-the-sea with its miles of white sand and pretty beach huts is the perfect place to take a bucket and spade and the whole family. Even on a busy summers day you can escape the crowds with a visit to Holkham Beach, miles of white sand fringed by pine woods and wide open skies, this beach is breathtaking even in deepest winter, a perfect place for a good long dog walk.

Bird Watching

The NNT Bird Reserve at Cley-next-the-sea is a ‘mecca’ for birders and twitchers alike, you could easily spend a whole week here - and people do! Well worth a visit even if birds are not your ‘thing’, the walk through the marshes with Cley windmill in the background and the sea crashing in is amazing.

Places to Visit

North Norfolk has more than its fair share of historical houses, estates and churches with Blickling Hall, Sandringham, Holkham Hall and Felbrigg all within very easy reach of Pudding Cottage and all open to the public. Less than an hour away is the Cathedral and castle in Norwich, take a walk or bus tour to enjoy this delightful City. The religious centre of Walsingham with its Shrines welcomes thousands of Pilgrims each year and is only 10 minutes from the cottage.

If shopping is for you don’t miss a visit to the pretty Georgian towns of Holt and Burnham Market, just over 10 minutes from the cottage you will find a great variety of individual boutiques, shops, galleries and gift shops.

Restaurants & Eating Out

“No visit to North Norfolk would be complete without a visit to The Moorings in Blakeney” not our words but we would have to agree. A visit to our wonderful restaurant offering local fish, meat and game with salads and vegetables from our own garden is a must. The food has been described as “unpretentious and outstanding with puddings to die for” we love what we do and we would love to share it with you - have a look at our restaurant website or you can find us in the very best guides. If you don’t want to eat with us every night or you are fed up with the BBQ then you will find plenty of good restaurants and pubs within easy reach of Pudding Cottage offering everything from fish and chips to Michelin starred food. Picnic Fayre in Cley is always worth a visit, this Deli is sure to provide a treat to take home, The Smokehouse in Cley will provide you with locally smoked fish and Cromer crabs.

Walking, Golf and Bikes

Pudding Cottage is surrounded by beautiful open countryside and farmland with lovely walks through ancient woodlands criss-crossing the village. Further afield the coastal path runs from Hunstanton to Cromer hugging the coast for much of the route. For the more energetic guests at Pudding Cottage we have safe bike storage and you will find miles of lanes and country roads to explore.

The seaside towns of Sheringham and Cromer both have golf courses and are available to visitors by arrangement.
