Good old Norfolk has it all. No need to fear that Friday night drive to the Moors as it’ll be well worth it when you awake to the lashing sea outside of a Saturday morning.
The Victoria in Holkham is renowned for its envious location to its beach of the same name, offering its chic retreat to welcome you home once exhausted by your local adventures.
You can also take the dog for an active weekend returning from hearty walks along the coastline to a feast of a menu. Expect locally caught fish, local beef and game from the nearby Holkham Estate so the food is as fresh as you could find it anywhere else. Expect the classics with a posh twist; venison carpaccio with redcurrants, apple and watercress or chuck in 1/2 a lobster. There’s something for everyone.
