13 THE GUNTON ARMS NORFOLK
WHY? This is arty weekend-break heaven. The art-dealer owner has filled the hotel, set in a deer park surrounding Gunton Hall, with works by the likes of Damien Hirst, Tracey Emin, Lucian Freud and Gilbert & George. Rooms have an antiquey, romantic vibe (free-standing tubs, no
TVs), the restaurant serves “hearty fare” and it’s just south of seaside resort Cromer, perfect for day trips.
