Waiting t’ Spring

North Norfolk Coast

Early February

The game season is over, however there is still plenty of availability, try Farm to Fork to Fish in Coltishall they were selling some fantastic game at the weekend.

I once read that the French can’t believe we don’t make more of the game on our doorstep, it would seem we are improving though; fabulous gastropubs along the Norfolk coast bear testament.

At the weekend we tried The Black Boys Inn at Aylsham a quaint Norfolk market town with a smattering of shops pubs, cafes and restaurants and, of course,  the narrow gauge railway that runs to Wroxham, 

The Black Boys is part of the group that operate Farm to Fork a very nice concept with some lovely inns around the county. Look them up when you visit Norfolk….

A mile to the west and you are at Blickling Hall which has fabulous grounds for a winter stroll but really needs a whole page to itself to describe its wonderful aspects.

Visit Norfolk, Aylsham, Coltishal and Blickling Hall visit Barn & Beach relaxing places to stay….
