Comments: Checking your website very sad to see your forum is now closed "due to abuse" - what on earth? This quiet, beautiful coastal village seems a million miles from the term "abuse".
We love to to explore the north Norfolk caostline and Cley is a favourite of ours, winding streets, quaint cottages and amazing little shops. A favourite of ours is the Picnic Fayre - everything you can imagine from a fantastic deli - just unexpected wonderful variety and flavours - a must for picnic shopping!
Yet to try The Windmill but look forward to that soon...
Cley is a hidden little gem which we hope no one ever finds so we can keep it to ourselves!!!!!
Admin reply: It was a constant battle of us versus spammers which meant that we had to pull it as it was taking up too much time to keep it clear. We're working on a new website though so it may come back

Comments: My maiden name was Brett and my father's family came from Cley. The Bretts lived at Quay Cottage. I visited with my Father and Mother (previously married to Albert Jeary from Cley) when I was a child and stayed at The George. I particularly remember my Great-Grandfather, Howard, who had a white beard. I went back with friends a few years ago and stayed at the Mill. I met a man at the Church who remembered my Grandfather, Billy Brett. Quay Cottage was being used for storage. I now live in Canada and would be thrilled to hear from anyone who knew and of the Bretts.

I've just upgraded the guestbook to the latest version which has much better anti-spam measures as we have been getting upwards of half a dozen spam attacks each day.
Please email us if you encounter any problems with the guestbook.
