North Norfolk featured in the Sunday Times Style Magazine

This weekend’s Sunday Times Style magazine featured North Norfolk as a possible mini-break venue. The front page header reads: “Cornwall! Norfolk! Whitley Bay?”

I turned the page and read: “North Norfolk increasingly plays host to an arty, intellectual crowd.” Very nice of them to say so!

The article continued to heap praise: “Champagne sands and some of the most beautiful gardens in England make the North Norfolk coast a desirable retreat”.

The gardens featured are those at Houghton Hall and the National Trust’s Blickling and Felbrigg Hall. Also recommended are accommodation at a new hotel in Langham called the Harper, Camp Elwood, a “retro-tinted campsite” at Holkham Hall, a holiday cottage at Wolterton Park and The Gunton Arms at Thorpe Market, a trendy gastropub with artworks by Tracey Emin and Lucien Freud on display.

It is nice to see such praise of North Norfolk in a quality newspaper, even if it is leaning towards being an advertising feature. Never mind, it is all helpful and will encourage tourism to our beautiful part of the country.
