Overview

Titchwell Manor Hotel Titchwell, Norfolk, PE31 8BB

The personal touch

In a stunning location on Norfolk’s glorious north coast and personally run by the Snaith family for 30 years, this former Victorian farmhouse enjoys uninterrupted views across wild salt marsh to the sea. With the RSPB Titchwell Marsh nature reserve just along the road, vast sandy beaches and stunning coastal walks close by, it is a favoured base among discerning twitchers and visitors escaping to this idyllic and unspoilt stretch of coastline. Beautifully maintained and tastefully updated this relaxed and informal hotel and bar combines traditional values with a bright modern décor and boutique-style rooms. Expect to find a light and airy conservatory restaurant, a contemporary-styled lounge with a bright yellow leather Chesterfield sofa in the bay window, pink upholstered chairs fronting a blazing log fire and striking blue motif wallpaper, and an equally bold and stylish bar area with stripped wooden floor, open fire and sliding glass doors leading to a small decked terrace for summer alfresco eating and drinking. The ‘eating rooms’ make the most of the fabulous views across fields and open marshes to the North Sea.

Sticky fingers

Children are allowed throughout the hotel and small children have a good menu. There are three family rooms but extra beds can provided in these rooms (£35; over 12s £45) and in the larger double rooms for £25 per night. Cots are also available at £10 per night.

Muddy paws

You are welcome to bring your pooch into the bar area and they can stay overnight with you in seven of the rooms – £15 per dog per night with dog bed, towel, biscuits and a local walking map.

Alfresco

You’ll find a small, decked side terrace for summer sipping and peaceful lawns and gardens to the rear.

Sleep

Titchwell Manor Hotel Titchwell, Norfolk, PE31 8BB

Do not disturb

Uncluttered, warmly decorated rooms are split between the main building (three have wonderful sea views), a traditional cottage and converted barn, and a stylish, single-storey new-build set around a courtyard and herb garden. Named after herbs, the latter sport chunky wooden beds, painted wooden or smart tiled floors, plasma screens, fresh coffee and good teas, and swish tiled bathrooms with thick towels and White Company smellies – most have private patios. The very stylish signature hot tub rooms have French doors that open onto an enclosed private terrace with a wooden hot tub. These fully equipped bedrooms have light wooden flooring, a 6ft bed and are styled in earthy greens with soft greys and nautical warm blues as befits the seaside location. Book the Potting Shed, a stand-alone room on the edge of the garden for a luxury, romantic hideaway – deep tub in the bedroom, a remote-controlled log-effect burner, coffee machine, mini-fridge and a veranda overlooking the garden.

Pampering

Annette Robinson, Holistic Therapist, can offer a range of treatments in the comfort of your room, including Aromatherapy, full body massage, hot stone therapy and reflexology.

Mastering the menu

(Lunch menu: starters: £6-£8; Main Courses: £13-£15; Desserts £7-£9; Conversation Menu: 2-courses £36; 3 courses £44; full afternoon tea £15)

Local and seasonal ingredients are skilfully prepared to produce dishes with interesting combinations and clear flavours, and both chef-owner Eric Snaith and head chef Chris Mann are not afraid to push the boundaries to create some very adventurous modern European dishes, perhaps venison loin with preserved baminella pears, chestnut, cocoa and bread sauce. Naturally, local seafood is used extensively on both the lunch and dinners menus, with local Brancaster Staithe fishermen, Cyril Sutherland and Simon Letzer, delivering mussels, oysters and lobsters to the door, and lookout for fresh Cromer crab and venison from Holkham Hall along the coast.

For lunch the Classics Menu lists a choice of sandwiches, say, smoked salmon with tellicherry pepper and lemon confit, shepherd’s pie with lamb shoulder, classic deep-fried haddock with tartare and scraps, or fish pie with Emmental mash, leeks and dried tuna. Cooking moves up a gear at dinner on the Conversation Menu, a starter of red meat radish, braised pork cheek and pinenuts, followed by turbot with mussels, chervil root and oil, bone ream and finger lime, or wild sea bass with snails, artichokes, black garlic and salted gooseberries. To finish, try the chocolate marquise with crème fraiche ice cream and clementine. Enjoy sandwiches or all-day tapas dishes in the walled garden or on the terrace overlooking the marshes. Don’t miss Eric’s full afternoon tea menu.

Walking

Walking

www.walkinginnorfolk.co.uk
Designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the North Norfolk Coast has been described as a long way from anywhere and that is certainly the impression it gives – especially when you stroll its many miles of beaches. There are countless walks of varying distances here; for something with a real sense of adventure, try the Peddars Way and North Norfolk Coast Path, which in places runs alongside a vast landscape of salt marshes, creeks and mudflats.

 

Cycling

Cycling

One option is to cycle by the Bure Valley Railway, a 9-mile trail running from Aylsham to Wroxham (returning to the start by train), while for something really adventurous you could bike along the North Norfolk Coast between King’s Lynn and Cromer. At nearby Dalegate Market you can hire bikes, trailers and child seats.

Events
