The Harper is located in Langham, on the North Norfolk Coast, just a mile inland from Blakeney and its wonderful sandy beach. The hotel can be found in an amazing brick and flint barn that used to house a glass-blowing company.

The hotel also offers many different spaces for food and drink. Whether it’s a cocktail at the bar, a fine meal at Stanleys or a cake and tea in Ivy’s, there are many well-thought-out areas to experience.
The Yard in the summer is an amazing place to enjoy those longer and lighter evenings, and the Den offers a wonderful setting for a game of pool, a nightcap, or even beers watching a Six Nations rugby match. Honestly, this place has thought of it all!

The Victoria, Holkham
The Victoria sits between the Holkham National Nature Reserve, the golden sands of Holkham beach, considered one of the best in the UK, and the parkland surrounding Holkham Hall.
The Vic has 20 individually decorated rooms, across two historic buildings, with ten rooms in each. Dogs are welcome in the rooms in the main building.
The Victoria Inn has also come in second in Visit England’s eco-friendly guide. The hotel is heated using a biomass boiler fuelled exclusively by Holkham woodchip and they are also closing the loop on compostables – any compostable packaging, food and plant waste is recycled, where it ultimately forms a nutrient-rich compost suitable for agriculture, building developments and horticulture.
The Victoria’s menus showcase the very best locally sourced ingredients. Fish and shellfish from the North Norfolk coast, meat from one of the farm tenants and fruits and vegetables from Holkham Hall’s own walled garden, all make for a delicious meal.
Alongside the restaurant is an orangery, offering magnificent views of the nearby North Norfolk coast, and there’s a traditional ‘snug’ bar where you can get cosy by the fire in the cooler months.
