North Norfolk
One of the most exceptional coastlines in England and is designated an ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’. This beautiful corner of the country is known for its open spaces, pine forests, acres of unspoilt countryside, wild salt marshes, mudflats and last but not least  its white, sandy beaches.   All these beaches have at some time been the setting for many films, countless photoshoots and innumerable happy family days out.  

Anchor Barn is a wonderfully spacious barn conversion situated in the centre of the quiet coastal village of Morston in North Norfolk. It is just a few minutes walk from the quay and offers exceptional family holiday accommodation comfortably sleeping up to ten people (+a baby).

With large and airy rooms, and huge sliding doors opening out onto a lovely courtyard garden it is an ideal place to relax all year round.

Morston is a small friendly village made up of a few quiet lanes, a cluster of flint cottages and a 12th century church. Sitting on the edge of the marshes, the quay is a hive of activity at high tide with sailing, motor and fishing boats streaming in and out, and a regular flow of ferries taking people out to see the seals. At low tide, you can often be completely alone on the quay, enjoying the extraordinary peace of the marshes, and watching the birds and wildlife. The village pub, The Anchor Inn, serves fine ales and good food; Morston Hall is a renowned country house hotel and Michelin starred restaurant. Nearby Blakeney (1 mile) has a mini supermarket, a fish shop, a great delicatessen, good pubs and restaurants and a couple of hotels.

The idyllic North Norfolk coastline is amongst the most protected in the country. It is an unrivalled area for walking, cycling, boating, bird watching ,playing on beaches, or fishing for crabs! Morston is an ideal base from which to explore this area.
