A popular spot on the north Norfolk coast has been named in a list of the most beautiful seaside villages in the UK.

Blakeney has been included in the list, compiled by the Telegraph, of coastal destinations which are 'ideal for a summer getaway'.

The area is popular with locals and tourists alike and is often seen as one of the best places to spot wildlife in the county because of its unspoiled nature.

Chosen for its "back lanes which are speckled with small flint cottages" and its "narrow winding streets", the village is described as a haven for those who want to escape the busy cities.

The Telegraph also mentioned Blakeney Point as a "must" visit, to view the common and grey seals which make the area their home.

Another highlight of the quaint village is its quayside, a prime spot for crabbing.
