After about 400 yards turn right into a lane called Town Yard (and which is signed for the village hall and public car park). After 100 yards turn left at T junction into The Fairstead. The Lodge is about 100 yards along road on right. You will see the main entrance to Cley Hall and the gatepost entrance to The Lodge is just to the right.

About 200 yards after the bridge turn left (signed for Cley). After about 400 yards turn left at the T junction opposite The Swallows pub. Directions are then as above (when approaching from Holt and after passing The Swallows).
The picturesque village of Cley is on the north Norfolk coast, an area of outstanding natural beauty. The Lodge is ideal for a peaceful break from the hubub of life or can be used as a base to explore the area,
For those not wanting to venture far, the marshes, windmill, award winning deli, pottery studio 'Made in Cley', Cooke's of Cley (for cream teas), The Smokehouse, local pubs The George and The Three Swallows, and the mediaeval church are all within a few minutes walk.
Some options open to guests who wish to explore further afield are lovely walks, birdwatching, crabbing, seal spotting, cycling and visiting stately homes. There are often art and craft exhibitions on in the area. We particularly like the work of local artist John Hurst.
