A Lovely Day!

Apologies for not posting yesterday, I was celebrating our 3rd wedding anniversary with my husband on the Norfolk Coast, and what a spectacularly sunny day we had. We first went to a national trust place Oxburgh Hall, a beautiful moated Tudor manor house. It even had a secret priests hole that you could crawl into, not without difficulty I might add.

We then headed to Burnham Market and had a drink in the sun at the Hoste Arms, They do a great afternoon tea here and would fully recommend you stop here for some food.

There are also some great interiors shops here especially Norfolk Living a shop of many rooms selling everything from wooden trugs to Emma Bridgewater ceramics.

We then headed to Burnham Overy to get a view of the sea and take a walk amongst the boats, I love that sound that you get by the coast of the boat masts clanging together in the wind.

Out last stop was Holt, in particular Byfords for afternoon tea which included fantastic finger sandwiches, warm scones with jam and clotted cream, sticky ginger cake, Bakewell Tart and chocolate brownie. Even my husband was thoroughly stuffed. We then had a quick hunt around our favourite antiques shop Mews Antiques Emporium just off Holt high street, it has pretty much got everything you can think of from old pig troughs to vintage milk bottles, you really need a good hour to make sure you see everything but we only had a quick look. It literally just started to rain as we got in the car so we definitely got the best of the weather. Anyway if you're ever in Norfolk check out some of these places you won't be disappointed.
