    Rooms

    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 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 with the seasons, whether you’re sampling a local speciality at the bar, grazing al fresco in The Yard or settling down to a 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.

    Spa

    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.

    The festive season

    A sleepy village setting, the peal of bells from a parish church, the crackle of a blazing wood burner. So far, so quintessential country Christmas. But The Harper's playful bonhomie adds delicious idiosyncrasy to the proceedings, promising a festive season of jollity and originality in equal measure. And a generous measure at that.

    For Christmas and New Year breaks in North Norfolk, look no further.

    Slide “You can eat pretty much anywhere you like at The Harper, but my favourite spot is the Yard, a suntrap terrace festooned with strings of lights and filled with olive trees, fragrant lavender and burnt-orange parasols.” Slide “You might have a hard time deciding how to spend your down time—games in The Den, al fresco cocktails in The Yard, or treatments at the spa, with its own indoor pool, hot tub, and sauna.” Slide “We kicked off our staycation with a lunch of crab tacos - the local crab really is all it’s cracked up to be - and a crowd-pleasingly comforting lobster and samphire mac and cheese at Ivy’s, followed by an afternoon of games as the rain tapped down on the stained glass and fire roared on. Super cosy.” Slide “About a mile to the big skies and endless horizons of the North Norfolk coast, The Harper…. will have 32 airy bedrooms, done in a style that doffs its cap to the building’s industrial heritage.” Slide “Borrow a bike or follow one of the hotel's Harper Hikes to explore the peaceful surrounding countryside.” Slide “…you can order the same food from anywhere in the hotel at any time of day, be it Ivy’s, the Yard or Stanley’s, the more formal (but still jeans-friendly) restaurant. And the menu is a glorious surprise. A Cullen skink sourced from the nearby Cley smokehouse is divine…” Slide “Laidback luxury near the Norfolk coast doesn’t get much better – and when you’re done exploring, the spa awaits with pool, thermal cabins and blissful, reasonably priced massages.”
