Dormy House Hotel
Thanks to a clifftop position, Dormy House near Cromer has pinch-me panoramic views over the north Norfolk coastline. Sit on the enclosed terrace – designed to keep sea winds at bay – preferably with a plateful from Dormy House’s daily carvery, nicknamed the “best roast on the coast”. Book into a room overlooking West Runton Beach, then head into town for a Cromer crab sandwich, or to Sheringham for cafes, pubs and antique shops. West Runton railway station is nearby, so leave the car at home and let the train take the strain.
