Artemis café (parking can be found around the village), West Cottage, New Road, Cley, NR25 7RA ROUTE
Walk from the café towards Cley Windmill, follow the track to the left to the windmill, and continue on as it becomes the Norfolk Coast Path. This will take you out of the village and towards the sea. The path links with a three-mile circular walk around the Norfolk Wildlife Trust’s Cley Marshes reserve. The marshes are beautiful whatever the time of year and are rich in birdlife – in the summer look out for avocets, spoonbills, numerous waders, bitterns, marsh harriers, bearded tits and teals. The walk takes you along the shingly beach before returning back through the marsh and up to the reserve’s visitor centre. Take time here to stop and take in the spectacular views before returning to the village.

Before your walk, enjoy a delicious fruit or cheese scone, freshly baked every morning, and a locally roasted coffee at Artemis Coffee Shop and Home Antiques. Choose from a seat in the sheltered garden or perch on the terrace with stunning views right across the marshes and sea in the distance. If you feel in need of refreshment during your walk, a stop at the café at the NWT’s eco-friendly visitor centre is a must. Sit on the large outside decking and soak up the unrivalled views, or if the weather is less than clement, perch at the counter inside by one of the enormous windows.
