Travel Nav

A car can come in handy along the Norfolk coast – the A149 runs from King’s Lynn to Great Yarmouth via Cromer, connecting many of the seaside towns. Direct trains run from London via Cambridge to King’s Lynn (from £44) from where the Coasthopper bus service runs along the whole coast as far as Cromer (Kings Lynn–Holkham from £8; Cromer and Sheringham have local trains to Norwich (from £6.70), where you can connect to long-distance services to London and Manchester.

Where to stay
Burnham Market’s Railway House is a former station house (and annexe to The Hoste Arms) converted into a characterful seven-room hotel. The best ‘room’ is the Railway Carriage that sits on the railway tracks (from £60).

The 18th-century Cley Windmill has great views across the salt marshes to Blakeney Point. Bedrooms take up the windmill itself, plus the attached former stables and boathouse (Cley-next-the-Sea; from £129).

The Victoria at Holkham has 10 plush rooms decorated in mute tones, with exotic fabrics, eclectic bric-a-brac and a relaxed colonial feel. Some rooms have views over Holkham’s salt marshes (Park Road; from £140).
