Good Hotel Guide Review
Close to ‘one of the most beautiful, isolated beaches’, this genteelly refurbished pub on the Earl of Leicester’s Holkham estate is ‘perfect for exploring the north Norfolk coast’. Enthusiastic staff welcome locals, tourists and their dogs to the open-plan bar, where hunting trophies and taxidermied wildfowl are displayed; in the dining rooms, local produce (beef from the estate; shellfish, fish and samphire from local waters) dictates the daily specials on the unfussy menu. Bedrooms and family-friendly suites in country-cottage hues have a few antiques and plenty of perks, including a mini-fridge with complimentary drinks. A plus, for Ancient House residents: a walled rose garden, for the sun and the scent.
