Our Inspector's view
This delightful flint and brick 17th-century country house hotel enjoys a tranquil setting amid beautiful, well-tended gardens. The comfortable public rooms offer a choice of attractive lounges and a sunny conservatory, while the elegant dining room, with floor to ceiling windows, is the perfect setting to enjoy chef patron Galton Blackiston's outstanding cuisine. The spacious bedrooms are individually decorated and stylishly furnished with modern opulence; there are six garden suites in the hotel’s pavilion. Cookery courses and demonstrations take place throughout the year. Well- behaved children and well-behaved dogs are very welcome here.

About the area
The North Norfolk Coast is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and probably the finest of its kind in Europe. Here you’ll find a string of quaint villages and small towns – Holkham, Wells-next-the-Sea and Cley next the Sea are 21st-century favourites, while Sheringham and Cromer are classic examples of a good old-fashioned seaside resort where grand Victorian hotels look out to sea. Further round the coast you'll find Great Yarmouth, one of the most popular resorts in the UK and packed full of amusements, shops and seashore entertainment. And let's not forget Norwich, the region's only city.
Norfolk prides itself on its wealth of historic houses, the most famous being Sandringham, where Her Majesty the Queen and her family spend Christmas. Many of Norfolk’s towns have a particular charm and a strong sense of community. The quiet market towns of Fakenham and Swaffham are prime examples, as well as Thetford, with its popular museum focusing on the TV comedy series Dad’s Army which was filmed in the area.
