It’s no secret that we have long enjoyed the reinvigorating feeling of being by the sea, taking in a lungful of sea air and feeling the sand between our toes. Recent census data has also revealed that people who live near the sea are much happier than those who stay inland. As it turns out, a stay by the seaside in a sublime hotel in Norfolk —can offer a much needed health boost, according to a study from the University of Exeter. Researchers say it’s pretty evident that city living can directly affect anyone’s mental and physical well-being and completely undermine it, more specifically due to the release of stress hormones and lack of exercise. In stark contrast, merely getting a whiff of the seaside completely counteracts these harms.

The Norfolk Coast on its own is one of the best holiday destinations in the UK. It holds a distinctive appeal for nature lovers, with its plethora of nature reserves all the way along it and bird species like marsh harrier, bittern, red shank, avocet and others. There’s also occasional appearances from muntjac and Chinese water deer. It’s no secret why a great Blakeney hotel such as The George Hotel at Cley has made its home there. It’s one of the more popular (and cared-for) destinations out there, evident by sound efforts from the government to protect the freshwater habitat from contamination by sea water. Such efforts are extremely vital since the impending damage would be disastrous for both wildlife and tourism.
