A seductive little café on the North Norfolk coast

A small but seductive café on a fruit and vegetable farm by the North Norfolk coast has been making a big impact this year. The Wiveton Farm Café has become a destination point for a wonderful breakfast, an excellent mocha and a bracing lunch, while savouring views across one of the most beautiful stretches of countryside in the county.

With interiors designed by rising star Annabel Grey and a menu by Alison Yetman, the café benefits from its local produce and its position alongside Wiveton Hall itself – one of the most beautifully crafted 17th-century homes in the region, where the gardens are open to the public. In the summer there are tapas evenings, while the autumn menu has items such as game and pigeon. Lunch for two costs around £40.

And if that’s all too much, then book into one of the calming meditation classes which have just started at the café.
