Shopping in nearby Holt and Burnham Market offers everything from antiques, interiors and fashion from Vogue-listed Anna’s in Burnham Market. There is a wealth of pubs and restaurants for lunch and dinner so you don't have to worry about catering during your short break.

 Out of season the countryside and towns in North Norfolk are quieter, the beaches deserted, pubs and restaurants are not as booked and we tend to be less busy. You may well find that you have the pool and tennis courts to yourselves during out of season short breaks.

For a special occasion gourmet weekend why not book a good local restaurant. This may take some advance planning especially if you have the excellent Galton Blackiston’s Michelin starred Morston Hall in mind. There are also several good restaurants not too far from here: The Victoria at Holkham, The White Horse at Brancaster and the Hoste Arms at Burnham Market.

For gourmet cooks on a weekend self catering break, Norfolk has a wealth of good local produce from organically grown fruit and vegetables, locally grazed meats, locally caught fish and seafood, handmade Norfolk cheeses and handmade chocolates. Our cottage kitchens are very well equipped with both a Rayburn and gas cooker in two of our cottages. You can pre-order delicacies before you come or just enjoy seeking out the specialist shops when you arrive.
