Norfolk’s Most Romantic Hotels, UK

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 7 of Norfolk’s most romantic hotels, you have a match made in heaven.

In order to refine their list of 7 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 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

Magazine Wood

  • Magazine Wood is an intimate B&B situated in a lovely secluded location with glorious views over the village of Sedgefield towards the Norfolk Coast and The Wash. There are just three suites each with their own entrance and the emphasis here is on privacy and relaxation.
  • 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 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.
