Meander between contrasting locations in North Norfolk, Yorkshire & Northumberland, complete with steam train journey and boat trip.

With three-night stays in each of our stylish, hand-picked places, this crafted itinerary combines superb excursions with plenty of time to explore at your own pace. We’ve spent days on end uncovering hidden corners along this vast stretch of England’s East, from Norfolk to Northumberland: knowledge we’re bursting to share. Seek out the now disused end-of-the-rail-line which once conveyed monarchy to Sandringham, shudder at the horrors of Bram Stoker’s Dracula amid the haunting ruins of Whitby and plot your way across the tide-dependent causeway to the Holy Isle. We’ll help you to make this a road-trip to remember.
