It’s pretty traditional in style, with seventeen beautifully furnished rooms that hark back to the days of Agatha Christie (who was a regular guest here when it was a private house). There are also four rather more contemporary double rooms in Bay Tree House next door, added a couple of years ago and furnished to a very high standard. All the rooms – in both houses – have free wifi, IPod docking stations, flatscreen TVs and spacious bathrooms (a couple with freestanding baths).
The main house is full of Christie memorabilia, and there’s an easy-going, old-fashioned charm to the place that’s infectious. There’s a cosy bar and a lovely small garden out the back, plus a really excellent restaurant, whose chef has been here for two decades and who presents a high-quality menu that changes daily and is all based on locally-sourced produce – they're famous for their 'ten-mile dinner' (the furthest away chef likes to get his ingredients). They also serve lunch and afternoon tea.
Double rooms with breakfast £100–£175 a night, but there are also always lots of good 'Short Break' and 'Dinner, Bed & Breakfast' deals available.
Open all year.
Beechwood Hotel, Cromer Rd North Walsham NR28 0HD
The Beechwood is on the northwestern side of North Walsham's tiny centre. Approaching from the south on the main A149, make a right at the second set of traffic lights onto Cromer Road and the hotel is on the left. From North Walsham train station, walk down to the main A149, cross over into the town centre and follow King Arms St and then Market St to where it meets Cromer Road and turn left; the hotel is on the right – a 5–10-minute walk.
