Aside from blowing raspberries all over our travel plans, the pandemic also put pins in The Harper's opening. Previously billed as one of the UK's hot hotel openings in 2020, it decided to hang back in order to open with a bang. Arriving in the pretty village of Langham - just a mile down the road from Norfolk's beauty-pageant queen Blakeney - its 32 bedrooms and spa (with all the trimmings: jacuzzi, sauna, light-filled indoor pool) have transformed the brick-and-flint barns that once housed a successful glass-blowing business. You'll find nods to its industrial past in the exposed brick, original oak-beams and blazing fire pits serving up places from their outdoor grill. We expect that the London escapees commonly found brooding on Norfolk's beaches will be first in line.
Opening early 2021
