An Edwardian country house hotel in a quaint village near the Sandringham Estate, including breakfast and an a la carte dinner option

Offering modern comforts in a charming countryside setting, the family-run King’s Head Hotel is a boutique bolthole in the small town of Great Bircham. Close to the market town of King’s Lynn and the picturesque Norfolk coastline, this Grade II-listed Edwardian house makes for the perfect home away from home.

Find a hearty a la carte menu of burgers, mussels, seasonal Cromer crab and traditional Sunday roasts in the AA Rosette-awarded restaurant, while the bar's famous gin collection boasts 60 varieties. Perfectly located in the heart of Norfolk, you can easily make the short drive to the miles of sandy beaches, while day trips to the market towns of King’s Lynn and Burnham Market make an ideal setting for historical landmarks and afternoon tea.

Each of the hotel's 12 en-suite rooms are individually designed for a bespoke touch, with beautiful throw pillows, hand-picked artwork and patterned wallpaper being just a few of the delightful features you might find. Rooms are equipped with everything you need for a comfortable night’s stay, from plush pillows to a stack of fluffy towels.
