My Norfolk – Luke Scott

Luke grew up in North Norfolk, spent time in London and returned when he was ready to settle down 15 years ago. He and his wife, Saffron, are Paffron and Scott, dealers in antiques, textile art and other interesting stuff. They are part of the team that runs Bluejacket Workshop in Morston and Luke shares Richard Scott Antiques in Holt with his father.

Favourite shop

Fakenham Market on Thursdays: Bread Source, Christies cheese stall, Seeking’s Fruit and Veg, antiques and vintage stalls & the proper old country auction.

Favourite eatery

At home; you can buy such great ingredients locally it makes it easy to cook.

Favourite walk

Stiffkey or Morston marshes in the winter, desolate and beautiful.

Favourite beach

Swimming at Sheringham when the tide is out. Nearly always freezing but you soon get used to it

Favourite memory

Getting married at Oulton Chapel, with good food and beautiful singing.

Reason to visit

You have the wildness of the coast and such varied countryside with luxury and comfort when you want it.

Best of all

Being able to live here and earn a living.
