Places To Eat & Things to See And Do



Outside Norwich (which has many excellent restaurants and pubs), notable fine-dining choices include The Neptune in Old Hunstanton (michelin-starred – requires booking well in advance), Morston Hall (also michelin-starred).

For a more relaxed (but still great quality) dining experience, try The Gunton ArmsThe Anchor Inn at Morston, The Wiveton Bell or The White Horse at Brancaster Staithe.

Days Out

For days out, you have the North Norfolk Coast, with Wells-next-the-Sea, Burnham Market,  Holkham (where there is a huge sandy beach miles long with dunes), Brancaster, Cromer and  Burnham Thorpe (Lord Nelson’s birthplace).

There are also several wonderful halls and stately homes in the area, including the National Trust properties, Blickling Hall and Felbrigg Hall, and Holkham Hall, which also has walks, shops and regular events.

Blakeney is a very quaint old port which is now the leisure sailing centre of Norfolk, several good pubs and restaurants and Blakeney Point which is a natural sand spit, which is a nature reserve and has great walks, oh and the largest Seal Colony in England! 

Cley-next-the-Sea has a fresh water marsh with incredibly rare nesting Bitterns and a shingle beach great for fishing.

Wedding Cake Stand

Holt, Burnham Market and Norwich are excellent for shopping.

Families and children will love BeWILDerwood (“A curious treehouse adventure”), the Dinosaur Adventure Park and Pensthorpe Natural Park, with walks, wildlife and an amazing outdoor adventure playground (“Wild Rootz”) and indoor adventure play area (“Hootz House”).

Culture-vultures are spoilt for choice with excellent little galleries and art& craft shops dotted along the coast, as well as several theatres, cinemas and large museums and galleries such as the fantastic Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts and the Castle Museum and Art Gallery in Norwich.

With such a lot to do both inside and outside Bessingham Manor, you really will be spoilt for choice.

C Robinson, July 2015

"We are just home from the most glorious family weekend at your lovely residence. It could have been tailored to our needs, with everything just as we wanted it. The bedrooms were very good and suited everyone, from Grandpa aged 80 to Evelyn almost two. We were able to have our evening meal in the garden each night and the cooking facilities were excellent. Thank you for making our family reunion beyond all our dreams."

The Youngs, Easter 2015

"WOW!!!! What a stunning property Bessingham Manor is and far exceeded our expectations. Thank you both for making it so welcoming when we arrived. The goody basket, the shopping put away, the warm Aga etc., was much appreciated and we immediately felt at home. Everyone had a fantastic weekend. Also thank you for helping my eager nephew and girlfriend with suggestions for the day when they turned up 5 hours early! We left at 10am and hoping all was to your satisfaction with the house/bins etc. Much was consumed over the weekend. Thank you again and congratulations to you both for creating a beautiful home."
