The White House – Burnham Market, Norfolk
In the heart of the North Norfolk countryside yet just a few miles from the sea, The White House is a secluded, serene retreat. The renovated Georgian house has 12 tranquil, individually designed bedrooms – many with freestanding baths and all with a Roberts radio, crisp white sheets and natural 100 Acres products. The reception rooms are decorated with rich colours, sumptuous velvet sofas and specially commissioned work by Norfolk artists. Light streams in through huge windows; there’s a fire for gathering round; an honesty bar for drinks; and French doors that fling open onto the terrace. In the mornings, made-to-order dishes such as pancakes and porridge will set you up for the day whether you fancy a trip to Burnham Market or staying put to relax in front of the wood burner in the walled garden. Guests can play tennis, croquet or hire bicycles to explore the coast. Gorgeous Brancaster beach is nearby too, where keen walkers can pick up the Norfolk Coast Path. When it’s not run as a luxe B&B, the place can be taken over for house parties.
