A venerable 250 year old Georgian Norfolk inn and B&B just yards from Blakeney Quay, enduringly popular with locals and visitors alike. We hope to be welcoming you, your family and friends alike . . . very soon.
A Georgian Inn that's been in the same family hands of Howard and Marjorie Davies and managed by their son Nic for the last 4 decades.
The Kings Arms was certainly re-roofed in the reign of George III, sometimes referred to the era of 'The Madness of King George' a problem little understood in 1788. Ten years after mental illness forced him to retire from public life, King George III, the British king who lost the American colonies, dies at the age of 82.
We'd described us as a 'classic pub' . . . in the sense we've kept it a bit like a time capsule . . . not painted in 'Farrow & Ball' paints throughout! . . . but to conserve and embrace the patina of time it's endured through the last few centuries or more, that is still as attractive for an Inn of such resplendence as ours. This is 'our local' which we'd love to share with you . . . with honest food, good wines, local beers and comfy beds if you so desire . . . we welcome you to our home and proud to be Norfolk & Good!
At The Kings Arms here in beautiful Blakeney you'll have a choice of four bedrooms and
three flats to choose from.
Our rooms are cosy and comfy
to suit couples and families alike.
We are also 'dog friendly' in bedrooms 1 and 2 only.

THINGS TO DO
Blakeney Point Coastal walk
Take a leisurely, but active stroll, along Blakeney Point’s 4 mile-long (6.4km) shingle spit to the sand dunes near the Lifeboat House, home to a variety of birds and looking out for both grey and common seals on the way.
Blakeney to Morston & Stiffkey Walk
Enjoy Norfolk’s vast open landscape and big skies on this lovely walk along the coast path beside pristine saltmarsh. Don't forget your binoculars, lots of wildlife-spotting opportunities across the marshes and scrub! Ideal for a family walk.
Cley next the Sea from Blakeney
Very photogenic, with half-sunken boats, and many sea birds.
At Blakeney itself, there are great, open, North Norfolk coastal views, and the path through the marshes to Cley. Typical of the north Norfolk coast, this is well worth a visit.
Fill your lungs with Norfolk sea air
Breathtaking beaches, Holkham bay was voted Britain’s best beach in the 2009 Coast Awards. And famously the stand-in for Gwyneth Paltrow’s desert island in the final shot of Shakespeare in Love.
At this time of year you can spot marsh harrier, bittern, red shank, avocet, breeder wading birds and the occasional muntjac and Chinese water deer – so do make sure you bring your binoculars.
Drier and sunnier than the West Country, North Norfolk is made for getting active in the great outdoors. The North Norfolk Riding Centre offers lessons with hacking in our glorious countryside .
"Great location near the Quay at Blakeney. Dog-friendly and a good selection of real
ales on-tap! Lovely, characterful inn.
Cosy rooms, absolutely fantastic showers.
Staff are very friendly and helpful.
Really good menu with ENORMOUS portions! Good selection of wines and the newly-discovered-for-us, 'Wherry' beer.
We can't wait to come back to stay again."
