Our Norfolk places to stay include the The Hoste at Burnham Market, a landmark inn with a buzzing atmosphere created by Anthony Whittom, its late owner, for years one of the big characters in East Anglia's hospitality scene. Cley Mill at Cley-next-the-Sea is a perennial favourite – a charming and original bed-and-breakfast in a comfortably but unpretentiously converted windmill.
It takes a while to get used to Norfolk's flatness, but give it a chance and you'll find it gets under your skin. The horizons here are distant, and the skies big, terrific on clear, starry nights. The coast, with its mixture of marshes and immense sandy beaches backed by dunes, is very special.
