The Victoria Inn in Holkham, Norfolk
Located between a vast expanse of sandy beach and a nature reserve and at the gateway to magnificent Holkham Hall, this 20-bedroom 19th-century inn is an ideal base for exploring the landscapes, history and coastal highlights of Norfolk. Owned by the Earl of Leicester, The Victoria Inn sources much of its produce from his Holkham Hall estate and the result is a superb menu that brings diners from far and wide. The hotel itself is pet friendly and offers a relaxed charm that carries through to the elegant, individually-designed ensuite rooms.
Rooms available from £185 per night

A friendly team of young, local staff provides efficient service with a laid-back vibe. Between 10pm and 7am, there are no on-site staff, as this is more a hostelry than a hotel. Guests can enjoy ample parking and a small play area for children.
