Norfolk’s Most Romantic Hotels

NorfolkJohn Fielding via Flickr

Norfolk's horizon is almost magically flat and endless, as the land, laced with inland waterways, becomes the marshes and the dunes and then the sea. This wonderfully moist landscape is dotted with ancient chutes, castle and charming seaside towns. Beautiful, scenic and serene, Norfolk is an unfailingly romantic destination, and paired with Norfolk’s most romantic hotels, you have a match made in heaven.

The Gunton Arms

In order to refine their list of Norfolk’s most romantic hotels, our Gurus have had to dine on Cromer crab in picturesque seaside surrounds, they’ve had to test several hot tubs - one in a glorious garden, rate panoramic coastal views, try the best local produce and even stay overnight in a windmill. Sounds idyllic, doesn’t it. And apparently sleeping perfectly the whole time, lulled to sleep almost every night by the sound of water.

Norfolk’s Most Romantic Hotels

Norfolk’s Best Special Occasion Hotel

Cley Windmill

  • Cley Windmill, in pretty Cley-next-the-Sea, is a wonderful windmill B&B conversion with nine quaint rooms and panoramic views over the salt marshes. This is a birdwatchers idyll, but it’s also a great spot for saltwater fly fishing and for local market shopping. Memorable.

Norfolk’s Most Romantic Country House Hotels

Strattons Hotel

  • Strattons Hotel, in the charming market town of Swaffham, is an eclectic, family-run bolthole with just ten beautiful rooms and elegantly decorated suites. The famous restaurant has won awards for its homey, English cooking using fresh, local ingredients and they do s lovely afternoon tea. Apparently there’s also a great antiques market in Swaffham every Saturday.

Norfolk’s Most Romantic Escapes

Titchwell Manor

  • Overlooking the marshes and coastline of the North Norfolk Coast, Titchwell Manor is a boutique-style hotel with stunning views. It has 27 individually designed rooms with pleasing traditional touches, like flagstone floors and chintz wallpapers, plus a popular restaurant offering modern European cuisine in a beautiful conservatory.
  • The Gunton Arms is a lavish, freshly restored country inn on a beautiful estate. There are eight rooms, individually decorated and featuring modern art belonging to a famous collection, bags of character and an excellent, Mark His inspired restaurant.

The Most Romantic Hotels with Hot Tubs in Norfolk

The Hoste

  • The Hoste looks like a traditional coaching inn or pub with rooms, but inside it’s been totally modernised and, rather unexpectedly from the outside, it has a great wellness spa offering a wide range of treatments. There’s a six person hot tub outside in the beautiful private garden. You’re only two miles from the coast and a selection of lovely, sandy beaches.
  • The Blakeney Hotel is a traditional hotel overlooking the small harbour at Blakeney. The hotel has recently been refurbished, so now, as well as 60 country-style rooms with sash windows and exposed beams, there’s also a new leisure complex with a large indoor pool, steam rooms and a six person hot tub.

If you like the idea of these properties have a look at our Guru’s complete collection of hotels with hot tubs in Norfolk.

Norfolk’s Best Value Romantic Hotels

Narborough Hall

For under a hundred pounds per night you and your partner can stay in a dreamy Tudor hall set amidst gorgeous formal gardens. Narborough Hall has five romantic rooms, with large ornate beds, exposed wooden floors, depending soaking tubs and wood fires.
