    The Harper’s 32 bedrooms beckon for weekend breaks, midweek escapes or longer decamps from the daily grind (with or without the laptop). Whatever you want from your time away from home, feel entirely at home in a spacious haven of peace, privacy and calm - and wake to a generous breakfast on the house. Find the room that’s right for you, dip into some Norfolk nibbles, reach for a moreish, just-mixed cocktail, and relax.

    With a considered blend of simple, rural pleasures and state-of-the-art amenities, we hope to set a new standard for luxury hotels in Norfolk.

    Food and drink

    Where land meets sea and the seasons still hold sway, you can expect the freshest and finest. The Harper’s menus change by the day, whether you’re sampling a local speciality at the bar, grazing al fresco in the courtyard or settling down to a five-course feast in the dining room.

    We’ve assembled some of East Anglia’s brightest and best culinary talent in our kitchen and created beautiful spaces to enjoy their craft, with an extensive wine list and an inviting bar you’ll prop up with pleasure.

    In North Norfolk, where the elements shape the everyday, wellbeing tends to come naturally. Spend an hour or two wandering our big, boundless beaches and you can’t help but feel better.

    For those with more disciplined routines, you’ll find all bases covered. Run the mile or so to the sea, along the coast path and back (we’ll provide the route). Walk to your heart’s content. Enjoy an invigorating hot tub. Succumb to the allure of the pool, clad in the smoothest stone and bathed in natural light - perfect for a daily dip. And with a cosy spa too, offering pre-bookable treatments, this is a place that enhances your wellbeing inside as well as out.
