Thursday - North Norfolk Coast

 Spectacular autumn morning at the beach house - cold and bright. We took a trip up the north coast, visiting Cley by the Sea, Salthouse, Blakeney Quay, Burnham Market and Holkham Hall.

The most amazing deli/shop I have ever visited in Cley - called Pinic Fayre. Incredible home-made bread, cakes, local beer, a lovely variety of cheeses, coated nuts in all different spice rubs (I got cashews in dhukka) and the nicest garlic pickle I have ever tasted. Incredible. I wish it was in my village.

Salthouse shingle bank, a place full of people filming things...what things?

Blakeney...loved this place, quiet and pretty, lovely craft shops and a beautiful quayside. I could live here.

Found this place on the road - grove farms  - you could fill a box with apples for a tenner, or a bag for a quid. They had so many varieties of apple, many I hadn't heard of at all, imagine having this on your doorstep? - I'd make so much PIE!

On to Burnham Market, the sweetest and most well kept village i've ever seen. Great deli called Humble Pie and a place called Norfolk Life where we bought a craft heart full of the most heavenly scented norfolk lavender and a silver snowflake christmas decoration. 

On the way home now, and sadly out of time to have a proper look round, we called into Holkham Hall, who had dressed their trees with ghosts for halloween - really spooky during the day, terrifying at night I imagine. The Hall has a deer park in it's grounds and we were lucky enough to see some munching away at the grass.
