Search the best hotels in Norfolk
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. And this wonderfully moist landscape is dotted with ancient chutes, castle and charming seaside towns. Beautiful and peaceful, Norfolk is a proper all ages holiday destination. Our pick of the best places to stay in Norfolk is mainly concentrated around the beautiful north coast. But there are a couple of choices for those who might prefer the bright lights of Norwich, rather than the genteel market towns of Holt or Burnham Market.

What not to Miss
- There's all sorts of ways to entertain yourself and your family in Norfolk, from taking solitary walks along beautiful great swathes of sandy beach - empty if you pick the right time of year, to going crabbing off piers in charming coastal villages. To sailing, or cycling, or eating Cromer crabs in picturesque seaside surrounds.
- Inland, the rolling countryside is criss-crossed by footpaths and dotted with woods and unspoilt flint villages. There are walks everywhere, from gentle rambles to serious hikes. Even the serious hikes don’t involve too many hills in this flattest of counties. Popular walks include the Roman Peddars Way and the North Norfolk Coast Path.
- Bird watching is another big pull here with nature reserves galore to satisfy even the pickiest of twitchers, and the sailing and boating goes without saying, what with the beautiful coastline and the perfect peace of the Norfolk Broads.
- If you prefer to be town/city based, there's lots on offer in both Norwich and King's Lynn. Norwich has plenty of history (from its majestic cathedral to its Norman Castle) plus good access to the Norfolk broads; King's Lynn is a charming market town filled with merchants' houses and winding streets.
This county is an increasingly popular destination, so if you want to bag one of the best places to stay in Norfolk, you'll need to plan ahead. Or else avoid school holidays, when it's virtually impossible to find anything! Or else come off season when you can feel like you've almost got the place to yourself.
For a seaside jaunt
Here's a couple of ideas to start you off, but we've also got a complete list of the best hotels on the North Norfolk Coast.
- The White Horse at Branscombe occupies one of the best locations on the north Norfolk coastline. Directly overlooking the waterfront, it has panoramic views of tidal marshes and endless sandy beaches. The nautical themed bedrooms don’t let the side down either, and the food is great.
