Hotels by the sea in Norfolk: from pubs with rooms to seaside family hotels Rugged and poetic, the Norfolk Coast is dominated by an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is part of the protected Norfolk landscape and covers 450 square kilometres of coastal and agricultural land. From The Wash in the west, through coastal marshes and cliffs to the sand dunes at Winterton, Norfolk's coastal landscape is a feast of walking, wildlife and beautiful beaches as well as activities and hospitality for everything from a solo escape to romantic breaks and family holidays by the sea. Hotels on the Norfolk coast range from luxury bed and breakfasts to restaurants with rooms and five star hotels. Many hotels are dog friendly, and all of them have something unique and characterful that defines their individuality and keeps people coming back. For example, The Blakeney Hotel at Holt is a favourite for outdoorsy family holidays, sitting in pride of place overlooking the salt marshes and the estuary. Alternatively, No. 33 Huntstanton is a romantic boutique B&B with plush soft furnishings and a refined sense of luxury. The Lifeboat Inn at Thornham is a 16th century inn that's been providing warm welcomes to travellers for more than 500 years, and the Rose and Crown at Snettisham is a welcoming pub with rooms that's a favourite amongst Good Hotel Guide travellers who enter through its rose rimmed doors to be greeted by log fires and hearty fare.
