The Village of Blickling in Norfolk
A visitors guide to the village of
Blickling in Norfolk. Sheltering in the shadow of a Jacobean Hall is the
small village of Blickling, surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside
with thickly wooded valleys.
As you drive, cycle or walk you enter old hollow ways of green cool
tunnels burrowing between high banks of earth and leafy lanes.
Fields and hedges and shapely woods form a
gigantic counterpane around this area.
A walk in ancient woods in May brings you into clearings awash with
bluebells, which give off not only their own distinct perfume but also
envelop you in a powder blue wonderland, which is breathtakingly
The tiny village has a smattering of pretty
cottages. As well as a good watering hole where there is every incentive
to stop for a meal or just a glass of something. The Buckinghamshire Arms
is a seventeenth century coaching inn with menus that combine both
traditional and modern dishes with a strong emphasis on fresh local food.
We understand that the inn in question is supposed to be haunted but we
have yet to receive details or confirmation of this statement.
Fishermen come to display their patience on the banks of the large lake at
Blickling in the care of the National Trust.
The market town of Aylsham with all its
amenities, shops and weekly market is under 2 miles down the road.
Located just over nine miles from the coast with Cromer
on the North Norfolk Coast and Bacton
East Coast of Norfolk.
