My Norfolk – Heather Tidd

Born, raised and still living in Brancaster Staithe. Heather feels privileged to manage the Jolly Sailors in the village; her great grandparents all ran pubs, The Victory here in Staithe and The Lifeboat in Brancaster so we guess she’s following a family tradition.

Favourite shop

Urban Armour in Burnham Market. It’s like a box of chocolates, full of treats for a special occasion.

Favourite eatery

So lucky to have the White Horse in the village, top quality fresh food using great local produce plus that amazing view.

Favourite walk

Peddars Way. My husband and I walked its entire length with our very small tent! Beautiful weather, fantastic views and happy memories.

Favourite beach

We have enjoyed so many happy idyllic family days on Brancaster beach, swimming in the heat of the summer and long walks on a near empty beach in the Autumn. It’s a very special place.

Favourite season

Taking the children to Barrow Common after a heavy snowfall, every child from the village throwing themselves down the steep slopes on anything from bin bags, tea trays and sledges while trying to avoid the gorse bushes.

Reason to visit

Visit Norfolk and you’ll find some of the best beaches in the UK, stunning vistas, so many foodie delights and a warm welcome whatever you choose to do.

Best of all

Norfolk for me will always be home, family, friends and happy memories. I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.
