On the Map: Twelve of the Best Unusual Stays in Norfolk

8 March 2020

Boasting a little something for everyone, Norfolk is a treasure-trove of holiday delights.

Nestled on England’s mid-east coast, there are over 90 miles of unspoilt, windswept coastline to discover, not to mention the completely unique Broads National Park.  

The city of Norwich oozes culture and heritage, and there are plenty of traditional seaside resorts to down fish and chip suppers at. Oh, and nature lovers will enjoy rambling through the magical forests and heathland!

Naturally, if you’re visiting somewhere as unique as Norfolk, you’ll need a place to stay that’s just as charming and unusual. So why not browse our list of some of the very best?
