Wiveton Cafe

Wiveton Cafe

We really love the Wiveton Hall Cafe - the quirky style, delicious food and the view. Since it has been made famous by Desmond MacCarthy's BBC programme 'Normal for Norfolk' it is very busy, especially at weekends and peak season, but weekdays in May, June and September it is often possible to sit outside and bask in the sunshine whilst eating delicious and truly local food and gazing out over the marshes to the sea. Inside there are Art Exhibitions, scrumptious cakes and brightly painted furniture. Take home strawberries, raspberries and asparagus in season too. It is absolutely unique and full of personality; we love it. 

Here is what they have to say about it and seasonal opening hours and events...

Our Chefs are passionate about sourcing truly local ingredients, if they’re not from the farm then you can be sure they won’t have travelled far.

The Café is also a regular exhibiting space for artists, please see the art page for details.

20 North Street Bistro

20 North Street Bistro

Not sure why we adding this to our list, as we would like to be able to get a table there sometimes too and as it is such a complete gem of a restaurant, it is already a challenge to get booked in ourselves. But, as the secret is out, we are thrilled to have them just down the road in Burnham Market and have to share their info just in case there is anyone who hasn't heard the buzz. Holly and Dan, the Front of House and Chef owners of this perfect little bistro have really created something special.

National Trust - East of England

National Trust - East of England

The photo is of wonderful Blickling Hall, the childhood home of Anne Boleyn, but the National Trust has many places to explore and to run free in North Norfolk. Including the Brancaster Estate, Morston Harbour (and Seal Trips) Snettisham and Titchwell Nature Reserves. The houses to visit and explore are as special as you would expect, including the 16th Century moated Manor House Oxburgh Hall, which houses remarkable embroidery done by Mary Queen of Scots and extraordinary Felbrigg Hall with stained glass that dates back to the 15th Century.

Adnams Cellar and Kitchen Store, Holkham

Adnams Cellar and Kitchen Store, Holkham

Fabulous kitchen shop on the Holkham Estate as well as the more obvious craft beers and huge range of spirits and wines, including their terrific quality range of Adnams made beers and spirits. The barley and wheat for their beers and spirits are grown locally, on the Holkham estate and even closer to The White House on Sussex Farm. Everything is distilled in Southwold, so it is a genuine East Anglian enterprise. We are happy to serve these from our Honesty Bar at The White House.

Norfolk Coast Path

Norfolk Coast Path

The most beautiful coastal walk - between Hunstanton and Cley. Choose your section and just bask in the huge open skies and wonderfully unspoiled coastal views. The Brancaster Staithe section of the path is recommended in The Daily Telegraph's Walk of the Week. Of course, everyone has their favourite stretch. Mine are the bite size chunks between Brancaster and Brancaster Staithe and from Burnham Overy Staithe to Wells - which includes the spectacuar stretch of Holkham coastline and from Morston to Blakeney. So many great pubs along the way too, a few of the ones we like are: The Hero, Wiveton Café (seasonal, as seen on the BBC's "Normal for Norfolk"), The Anchor and, right on the path in Brancaster is The White Horse.

Brancaster Staithe Harbour

Brancaster Staithe Harbour

Ice cream van, Local seafood Shack, fishing, lobster and sailing boats, lovely little port and a good place for a wander. You can walk there on the Norfolk Coast Path from the bottom of London Street in Brancaster. Avoid visiting just before high tide in the summer season, as there is always a mad rush for everyone to get their boats out, especially when the sun is shining.

RSPB Titchwell Marsh

RSPB Titchwell Marsh

Marsh, Lagoons and sandy beach - RSPB Titchwell is well known for the high quality of the birds and the beauty of the landscape. Interesting also for the archeological insights in to the changing coast, all the way back to the Mesolithic Age and including the remains of two Covenanter tanks from WWII. Good facilities to accommodate everyone. About 5 miles from The White House.

Brancaster Beach

Brancaster Beach

Walk for miles on unspoiled, wide open beach, dunes and marsh. Breathe in the ozone rich fresh air and let your cares float away on the breeze - in the winter, it is a bracing one. While away magic summer days pottering about in the water, there is always plenty of room for everyone. Only about 4 miles from The White House and the absolute best spot to watch the sun go down, winter or summer.
