From crazy golf to spa cabins, a pub and hotel in West Norfolk are making a splash after a huge refurbishment.

The Ffolkes in Hillington, near Sandringham, has just launched four new room types in time for the summer season.

For those looking for a luxury break, there are three new spa cabins, which have their own private hot tub and sauna.

Other new additions include four colorful courtyard rooms with outdoor soaking tubs and the two-story apartment The Mews.

Finally, there are two bunk bedrooms that can each sleep up to six people and feature scaffolding bunk beds and a private terrace.

Mollie Gallon, Marketing Manager, said: “The bunk rooms are ideal not only for families, but also for groups of friends.

“Guests love the new rooms and especially the outdoor tubs which they post on social media.”

Street Feast launched in December 2020 in response to the pandemic at on-site event and wedding venue The Stables with Norfolk food and drink vendors.

Now that The Stables is back in use, the Street Feast style has been incorporated into the pub with pops of color and playful artwork.

The Ffolkes offers all-you-can-eat breakfasts daily, a Pie Kitchen menu on Tuesdays and Thursdays and on Sundays, Pie Feast with all-you-can-eat roasts, mini pies and desserts.

Norwich vendor Oishii Street Kitchen is here Wednesday and Friday evenings and Saturday afternoons until late serving Asian-inspired street food.

Miss Gallon said: “We created Street Feast for outdoor dining during the pandemic and everyone loved it so we kept rolling with it.

“Everyone knows Norwich for street food, but we wanted to have something for the people of West Norfolk.”

The latest new addition is a crazy nine-hole golf course inside shipping containers, which is located next to the playground and features street art by local artists.

Miss Gallon added: “We now have lots of people spending the day here and we’ve become a fun destination pub.”

The Ffolkes is owned by Iain Wilson, who is also behind The Pigs at Edgefield and Byfords at Holt.
