Long a family favourite, this stately looking former manor house draws the summer crowds following a day at nearby Cromer or time spent on Holkham’s magnificent beach. In keeping with its grand appearance, expect a country-chic feel. Cosy, rambling bars and dining rooms welcome visitors, featuring blazing fires, rugs on wooden floors, old paintings and prints on warm Farrow & Ball painted walls, shelves groaning with books, unusual objet d’art and an eclectic mix of old dining tables. Hunker down on the leather sofa by the fire following a winter coast path ramble and peruse the papers with a drink in hand.
The King’s Head Letteringsett
Set back from the road in acres of grounds, The King’s Head is the perfect place to rest and refuel after a day on the beach or walking the coast path. With teak tables and chairs on the sun-trap front terrace and a secret side garden, there’s plenty of opportunities for alfresco drinking and dining in the summer months. During the summer holidays the outside bar and BBQ in ‘The Shack’ is in full swing from noon to 8pm.
