Self-catering holiday accommodation in Stiffkey
Stiffkey is a Norfolk village on the north coast of the county. Found at the edge of Stiffkey Marshes, the village is charming and is well-known for its old mill and the scandal of the Rector of Stiffkey, Harold Davidson, which was big news in the early 1930s. The salt marshes and the River Stiffkey form part of a nature reserve, Stiffkey Fen, which is home to lagoons and reed beds which provide good habitats for bird life.
Stiffkey is close to the striking Blakeney Nature Reserve and Blakeney Point, which is accessed with Cley-next-the-Sea overland, or by boat in the summer. Hundreds of seals haul-out to rest and give birth at Blakeney Point, so if you walk the 4-mile spit to the end you will see them and lovely birdlife including terns, and many lesser spotted migrating birds. Also, head along the coast to Cromer for good pubs, restaurants, and even a cinema. So quiet and remote is this stretch of the English coast you will really feel like you’ve reached the edge of the world. If you are looking for a secluded break in Norfolk, stay in a Stiffkey cottage. Take a look at our collection above for inspiration.
