Eating out in north Norfolk

We have some amazing places to eat within a few miles of our cottages.

North Norfolk is famous for its Cromer crab and seafood – why not try these local delicacies in a variety of pubs and restaurants? Most try to source local produce when ever they can.
Here are a few suggestions to get you started:

  • The Saracens Head is a short walk (approx. 15 mins) from Swallow Cottages, Wickmere.
  • The White Horse is a short walk (approx. 5 mins) from our Overstrand cottages.
  • The Roman Camp is a short walk (approx. 15 mins) from Hollybrook Cottage.
