|Welcome to The White Horse Blakeney
Blakeney is a gem. Narrow streets of flint built fishermens' cottages wind their way to a small tidal harbour. The creeks and Glaven Valley estuary beyond are surrounded by vast marshes of sea lavender. Mud flats exposed at low tide are home to samphire and natural mussel beds. Skylarks, redshanks and oyster catchers fill the skies.
The horizon is dominated by the shingle ridge of Blakeney Point: a thousand acres of marram grass dunes and wide open spaces. There are Sandwich, Common and Arctic nesting terns and a thriving colony of common and grey seals. A trip to the point on one of the local ferries is a must.
Whether sailing, walking, bird watching, beach fishing, catching gilly crabs with hand lines or simply watching the fast moving tide as it sweeps into the harbour, it's the simple pleasures that make Blakeney so special.
A short, steep stroll from the quayside sits The Blakeney White Horse. Formerly a coaching inn it is today one of the regions foremost small hotels. Countless visitors and locals alike make their way to our door in search of warm hospitality, great food, wine and beer.
