Fabulous but relaxed hotel for romantic weekend break - Norfolk, Suffolk perhaps

Can be flexible on area, but would prefer not to be more than 2 hours (ish) drive from South Cambs. Money no object, within reason.

Somewhere with its own fabulous restuarant, or one within easy walking distance. Not stuffy and no dress codes (dh has to wear suits all week so won't at weekends and I don't have any smart clothes blush).

Dh had suggested the Crown at Southwold, but it is fully booked for the weekend we want.

The Victoria at Holkham


had a couple of nights here for our honeymoon

Looks really lovely, but sadly fully booked.

Hope your dh takes you another time.

Holkham one looks nice.

Broad House Hotel Wroxham - charming and very laid back!

I second the broad house hotel, or you could go to the white horse brancaster. I've stayed at the hoste arms, great food but our room was tiny and you could hear the noises from the bar...which i thought was a bit much with the prices they charge. You could also do self catering here, I can recommend the Melford - with its own hot tub...

No strong views on town v country. If secluded it has to have a good restaurant though - don't want to have to drive somewhere else in the evening.

Broad House, Hoste Arms both fully booked.

I'm wondering if it a tad optimistic to expect to find availability at anywhere good in Dec? Can't be flexible on dates though (unless we wait until Feb).

Victoria is fabulous. As well as the hotel, you can stay in the Arch at the entrance to the Holkham estate which is hugely romantic. Only about 15 mins from Burnham Market if you fancy some shopping and the beach at Holkham is absolutely gorgeous

Anyone been to or know anything of Milsoms Kesgrave Hall? Dh is keen, but I'm not sure. Reviews on Tripadvisor are very mixed.

tuddenham mill?

MrsJohnDeere Sun 25-Oct-09 13:25:38

Drawn a bit of a blank here. Everywhere is booked, apart from this hotel dh has suggested about which we know very little.

Considering The Bull at Bridport now...

also fully booked, but thank you for the suggestion smile

Buntytea Sun 25-Oct-09 15:53:44

I have it on good authority that the rooms here are quite something.

MrsJohnDeere Sun 25-Oct-09 20:54:24

also fully booked

I thought The Victoria at Holkham was terrible, really wouldn't recommend.

what about a hotel du vin? I liked the one at Henley

I think Tuddenham looks good but I haven't stayed there

runawayquickly Tue 27-Oct-09 22:49:41

MrsJohnDeere, have you found anywhere yet??

I love The Swan at Lavenham.
