A Brief Visit to North Norfolk

I had a wonderful time in North Norfolk on Saturday. The day started off a bit overcast but in the end we were blessed with perfect weather, lots of sunshine but not uncomfortably hot.

First stop – Burnham Market

We started the morning off, as we always do when visiting the area, with coffee at the Hoste in Burnham Market followed by a visit to the lovely independent shops in the village to stock up on picnic supplies.

Craynaise royale from Gurneys Fish shop is top of the list followed by pastries, pate and other delights from Humble Pie, a gorgeous deli. Since our last visit, Humble Pie has now moved to just above Gurneys Fish shop, resulting in a bijou little food emporium filled with delicious delights.

North Norfolk Railway

After loading up the car, we headed off to Sheringham for the Spring Steam Gala. I’ve been wanting to get my Harry Potter vibe on and take a ride on an old fashioned steam train for a few years now and the North Norfolk Railway did not disappoint.

Holkham Beach

We finished off the day with a few hours relaxing on beautiful Holkham Beach, reading and polishing off the last of the picnic. All in all, a wonderful day and the perfect antidote to a busy, tiring week baking in a hot kitchen.
