Welcome to Blakeney Cottages

Vaughn and Cristina Balding have run their retreat at Broadview on the North Norfok coast for 20 years.

Vaughns’ is a local family, many generations being interned at the foot of Blakeney church a half a mile to the West. Cristina’s family come from Brieno, a village that looks out over lake Como in northern Italy, where her great-grandfather made the most wonderful time-machines – which brings us to Vaughn’s interest, space-time and the physics that describe it.

The cottages, Alice, March Hare and Hatter and the main house, Broadview, were built by Vaughn and Cristina. Every flint hand picked from the quarry, every tile and brick man-handled into place.

Why the Alice in Wonderland theme? …… Because life is a surreal adventure.
