A night and day in Burnham Market, Norfolk

Somewhere to stay: Burnham Market, Norfolk - East Anglia hotel reviews - country & travel - allaboutyou.com


At the Railway House (www.thehoste.com), an old station on the outskirts of this beautiful Norfolk town. Converted into seven en-suite bedrooms, each one is elegantly decorated with crisp bed linens and luxurious toiletries. A central sitting room with inviting chairs provides a place to relax with fellow guests. Breakfast includes a choice of smoked kippers, free-range eggs, fruit salad and pastries, and is served at its sister property The Hoste Arms, a 17th-century coaching inn a ten-minute walk away. Double B&B from £100.


Dishes made with local produce at The Hoste Arms, such as fresh seafood – Brancaster mussels, Burnham Creek oysters and Cromer crab – and heartier fare, including pork belly and pigeon breast. Gurneys Fish Shop has an amazing array of local catches, while Tilly’s Cafe (01382 730300) serves tempting homemade cakes next door. Deli Humble Pie is packed with mouthwatering pies, British cheeses, homemade chutneys and delicious sweet treats.


The independent shops either side of The Green. Head to Norfolk Living for stylish pieces for your home and garden as well as bath products and fashion accessories. M&A Cringle, on the opposite side, sells ceramics, woodwork and toys handmade by local artists. Be sure to visit The Artmonger run by Laura Pocock, which stocks quality yet affordable artwork, and Andrew Ruffhead’s Fish-and-Ships art studio – his brightly coloured drawings, prints and hand-crafted wooden fish are bound to make you smile.

Further afield...

Follow the Peddars Way and Norfolk Coast Path (www.national trail.co.uk) from nearby Brancaster to Wells-next- the-Sea, then board the narrow-gauge steam train to Walsingham (www.wellswalsinghamrailway.co.uk), also called ‘England’s Nazareth’. There you can visit pilgrimage site The Shrine of Our Lady, as well as the remains of the medieval priory (www.walsinghamabbey.com).
