Morston is a small village made up of a number of quiet
lanes and a cluster of cottages built from local
cobbles. It is a popular place for boating
enthusiasts, who sail the local waters from the quay.
The puzzle of creeks and pools of salt marsh that make
up Morston Marsh, are under the care of the National
The beautiful coastline of North Norfolk invites such
pursuits as rambling, fishing, bird watching or just
relaxing. Morston Marsh attracts many wading and
over-wintering birds such as redshank, Brent geese,
shelduck, wigeon and teal.
In summer months these marshes are a
blaze of purple sea lavender. There are some delightful
walks out along the Long Distance Norfolk Coastal Path
along to Blakeney in one direction and Stiffkey in the
other. Or out along the creek that overlooks
Blakeney Point, though it is important to watch the
tide, and wellington boots are recommended! The seal
population at Blakeney Point can be visited by boat from
Morston or Blakeney and the boats leave daily at varying
times, according to the tides.
During the season you will find a small stand selling
light refreshments on the quay and in the village itself
a good local inn, The Anchor Inn. The highly
acclaimed Morston Hall Restaurant, has a set dinner
menu, which changes daily, to guarantee that all food is
prepared from the best and freshest ingredients, most of
it from local sources. Dinner is served at a single
sitting and advanced booking is essential.
Just round the coast is the village of Blakeney with its narrow
streets leading to a small harbour, here you will find a
variety of small shops (including a mini supermarket)
