How to find Morston Quay Norfolk
SatNav: Morston Quay, Quay Lane, Holt NR25 7BH
Morston Quay is between Wells-next-the-Sea and Blakney. It’s a great place to park up and explorer the North Norfolk Coast. From here you can take the coastal path and either walk to Wells, which is 6 miles or Blackney which is only one and a quarter miles.
I have walked from here to Blackney and while it’s very open and potentially windswept on a cold day, the walking itself is flat and easy for the most part. There are cafés and toilets at both ends and if you get your timing right it should be possible to get the bus back fro Blackney if you can’t face the walk back.
What other National Trust Sites are near by?
I haven’t seen this before at other National Trust sites but liked the board below which shows all the other National Trust sites which you could also visit if you are on Holiday in North Norfolk.
I am a regular visitor to Felbrigg Hall, and highly recommend the walled kitchen garden there, and Blickling Hall where I recommend the cycle hirer as a good thing to do with the family and a great way to explorer the estate. Horsey Windpump is also worth visiting with children as they get to climb up inside and see how a wind pump works.
My pictures below give you a flavour of this piece of the Norfolk coast.
What facilities are at Mortson Quay?
There is a little café which serves hot drinks and sandwiches. There is also a small used book store. You can also climb the stairs to the lookout deck and watch birds and enjoy the country side.
There is a separate toilet block, which when we visited seemed clean and well maintained.
There is also a Boat and trailer park, if you are bring you boat for the weekend.
