A Mid Week Weekend to North Norfolk

Sunday, 14 September 2014

It might not be my birthday for another 10 days but Tom and I decided to celebrate our birthdays early ( his is the 19th ). As we are both super busy on our actual B days.
So we went to Byfords in Holt which is in North Norfolk so it wasn’t a huge drive. Byfords is a gorgeous bakery/cafe/posh B&B which serves the most amazing cakes among other delicious treats. You may have seen their ‘Sponge’ brand of cakes about as they are pretty popular now!
We booked into stay the night with dinner and breakfast included so we starved ourselves before hand so we could mega indulge.
You are greeted with complimentary afternoon tea where we both had scone with clotted cream before wondering around the town dipping in and out of the shops.
We then got washed and dressed and had an amazing dinner which was tapas type starters followed by homemade pizza. We were far to full for desert however before you go to bed they provided moon shaped shortbreads ( we may have managed to fit a couple of those in ).
The next morning we were greeted with freshly squeezed orange juice , pastries , more scones and an array of fruit and yoghurts as well as a lovely hot breakfast menu.
I went for the Eggs Benedict ( minus the sauce …not a fan) which was so lovely and Tom had the full English and pastries!!
We then took a short drive to the coast as it was such a beautiful morning and went for a walk around a little seaside town called Blakeney which was a gorgeous end to our mid week weekend break.

Excuse the photo quality I realised I had forgot my blogging camera when we arrived :(
