Good Hotel Guide Review
The north Norfolk countryside stretches away in all directions from Tim and Janie Elwes’s ‘enjoyable’ Georgian inn, which stands in ‘a beautifully rural setting’ not far from the coast. The ivy-covered 19th-century building was designed to mimic a Tuscan farmhouse; it has bright public spaces, cosy-making wood burners, books and maps to browse. Bedrooms on the upper floors are simply decorated, though no less cheery for it. Each is supplied with hot chocolate, teas, ground coffee and a cafetière, plus natural Norfolk toiletries. In the earthy-toned restaurant, local produce studs the blackboard menu – think Brancaster-smoked salmon, Cromer crab, East Anglian cheeses. Aylsham, a ‘delightful’ town, is nearby.
