Click open the latch gate and enter Gunton Park. The beautifully restored Gunton Arms overlooks one thousand acres of lush and historic parkland and the setting is stunning. Art dealer Ivor Braka has lavished money on the once faded hotel and the results are impressive… who would not love the chic hunting-lodge style? Warm red hues, wooden floors, a blazing log fire in the traditional bar (dogs welcome too), elegant lounges with pretty views of deer from every window. Quaff pints of Wherry alongside gamekeepers and gentry; tuck into rib of beef cooked over the fire in the vaulted dining room. Stuart (ex-Mark Hix) champions locally sourced ingredients, so enjoy mixed grill of estate fallow deer served with crab apple jelly; Brancaster mussels and chilli tossed in linguine; Cromer crab in summer. Irresistible bedrooms ooze country-house charm: antiques, gorgeous fabrics, Persian rugs, old prints and paintings and indulgent marble-tiled bathrooms, some with deep tubs and walk-in showers… wake to parkland views. An unusual, hospitable, richly atmospheric find.
