  1. This looks like a uncrowdy place I’d want to see really soon! Getting to Norfolk isn’t that easy, it seems? Which airport is the nearest? Norwich seems to complicated, mostly with a stopover in Amsterdam – or is there a trick?

    Like

    • Dear Jackie,
      we are not so touristy here, except July & August you hardly see anybody on the beaches. That we are not that easy to reach helps to keep the crowds away – we fought for having no motorway in Norfolk, no industry, and no road made wider.
      You can fly to Norwich via Amsterdam or – what I usually do – fly to London-Stansted and take the airport bus (NationalExpress) to Norwich – that`s easy and much more reasonable. Most of my B&B guest from the US and the continent arriving via STN.
      All the best

  6. Your great photos bring back happy memories of several holidays in Norfolk. We were lucky enough to see 300 baby seals on the beach with their mothers on a bitterly cold November day last year. We couldn’t get close to them as they were protected by wardens but I, too, managed a few photos. I’ll post them on my blog.

  11. Wundervolle Fotos, dafür ein ❤liches DANKE an Dina.

    Was mich berührt ist die Weite und die damit verbundene gefühlte Stille, aber auch ganz viel natürliche Schönheit und auf mich wirkt der Ort wie einer, an dem man ganz zu sich kommen kann.

    Beim Ansehen dachte ich: Die einen gehen mitten in die Stadt, um dort zu leben – und finden wie im Auge des Sturms ganz zu sich. Die anderen gehen an Orte wie diesen, um ganz zu sich zu kommen.

    Sehr wohl kann ich verstehen, wie magisch anziehend diese Weite der Landschaft und des Meeres hier ist. Und deswegen wünsche ich euch beiden (Vieren ;)) noch viele schöne friedliche Stunden, Tage, Wochen, Monate, Jahre… (?) auf Rhu Sila und in der Gegend um Cley.

Wenn man bei mir am Strand nur eine halbe Stunde geht, sieht man fast keinen Menschen. Sheringham ist dagegen voll, da man bis dahin mit der Eisenbahn kommt, aber Cley, Salthouse, Blakeney sind noch nicht richtig touristisch, bes.nicht Cley. Ich vermiete ja auch bisweilen und alle Besucher empfinden es hier als leer.

    • Dear Francina,
      as Dina is on an island in Norway I answer her comments – well, some of them at least.
      Most of East Anglia is beautiful and North Norfolk has the advantage is not that easy to reach like other places. North Norfolk is a kind of dead end, you have to go there but you never pass through going North – South or East – West. In the literature it was called “The Edge”.
      It`s really great living here and I still enjoy it very much although it has changed in the last 30 years quite a bit. It became a posh area but in Cley no new houses were allowed to be build since about 1980 and the village is more less entirely like it was in the 19th c. but every building is nicely renovated. When I came here it was a derelict village.
      Groetjes and a hug

We walked out to the point from Cley and across the mudflaps at low tide. We even swam with the seals once (before the tourist boats went out there). We wandered along the sandy beaches at Wells and Holkham for hours, sometimes in the dunes, sometimes in the pine forests. We swam at Sheringham beach and had chips and sandwiches in the noisy seaside town. It’s the best place on earth! Thank you for these wonderful photos bringing back all those memories!😀😀😀

    • Hei Jude,
      thank you so much for visiting all your kind words!🙂 Whereabout in Norfolk do you stay? What a pity I’m not there right now… I was in Cley the whole of January and you can see lots of wintery photos and more from North Norfolk in my category (Kategorien) Norfolk, England. My friend Klausbernd Vollmar lives in Cley and I have lots of photos from the region on his blog as well; kbvollmarblog. Have a great time in beautiful Norf♥lk!
      Best regards

  37. Next time I am in visiting my friends in Yorkshire, I will have to seriously consider a trip to Norfolk and Norwich, if I can get myself out of the Pennines and Dales. Perfectly lovely!

    • This sounds most interesting, Robert. We’re actually off to the Lake District in a couple of weeks and we want to see the Yorkshire Dales going there. Do you have any favourite spots there?🙂

    • Dina, I asked my friend in Yorkshire to get together a list of 3-4 places we especially
      enjoyed, as some of it is a bit of a blur for me. I’ll reply again when I get that list. The one that sticks in my mind is Haworth, which is prime Bronte country. The sisters grew up in the parsonage there.

  38. Hi Dina ^_^ I must admit – Norfolk has never featured on our van bucket list…..but looking at your gorgeous pictures I think that needs to be rectified immediately! Note to self: border pups must get to see the Norfolk coast!

  39. Too often one looks for one photo to say it all. I love the way your arranged this pictorial essay about a place you love. It inspires me to try something similar. If I post something I want to include a link to this, in appreciation.

    • Wow, thank you so much for this praise, Marso! It’s highly appreciated. I love this landscape and try to picture it with a loving look behind the camera. ♥

    • That’s why I love my camera. Photos can communicate without words and transport the feeling of a landscape. I love being on North Norfolk. Thank you so much for your kind words, Cindi. Comments like this make blogging worthwhile! Greetings to you in Norway.

  41. Thank you for liking my blog. This page makes me feel slightly tearful. The photos are beautiful and remind me how much I miss Norfolk and the Norfolk skies that I grew so fond of. (I’ve been living in Birmingham for the past eight years.) Many of the places you mention bring back memories of working as an unpaid runner on ‘Norfolk’s Coastal Kitchen’ but then that was all a long time ago now. All the best. I’m going to be looking in for more photos to remind me again of that gorgeous countryside that I grew up with. Thank you.

  42. Hi Dina,
    Thanks for liking my post. I loved your photos of North Norfolk. I have been there many times but have never discovered The Lokes. You should come to North Kent and the Hoo Peninsula which has similar big skies and great birds.

    • I’d love to go there, I just looked it up. We went to Kent/Essex earlier this summer, but missed this part. England is great, I love travelling there and I’ll put Hoo on my list.
      Thank you so much for visiting, Carol. Have a lovely day.

    • *BIG HUG!* Thank you, thank you♥🙂
      So often someone has told me to inform The Eastern Daily press about this post, but I have no clue how to get through to them. This makes up for all the effort, so kind of you, Sara.
      Love

  44. Oh Dina, this is my favourite post you’ve ever done. I just loved it. I stopped and looked at many of the photos on their own. Of course you know that I was especially mesmerized by the beach photos — before I started reading your blog I had no idea there were beaches like that in Great Britain — but there were so many others that I enjoyed so much. The fields, the birds. I jsut love your work. YOu convey the feeing of a space and a day so well. Imagine having a birding book like the one you took a picture of too. Scrumptious. I just loved this.
