So to inspire and to add a little of the coastal spirit to your interior we thought we'd share with you a few of our most favourite coastal spots and a delicious recipe perfect for a Sunday, or any day really, feast!
Norfolk Coast -Holkham Beach
An enormous expanse of sand. Beautiful, perfect for escapists. White sand and huge skies.
The Roseland Peninsula
Small coves of unspoilt beauty, here is Portloe. For interiors inspiration I love the thick rope of the boats and the battered paint, a natural shabby chic effect!
An idyllic quiet spot, that creeps up on you; more sheltered than its neighbour Camber and worth it to see the Romney Marsh sheep grazing adjacent to the beach.
Wild, windy and a huge gorgeous beach. Lovely in the winter and ideal for kite surfing for the more adventurous!
Untouched and rugged these shores are sublime stretches of sandy beaches, perfect for some solitude and reflection.
Isle of Harris
You could mistake this Scottish coast for the Caribbean. Startlingly blue sea and incredible wildlife.
Here is the most delicious recipe we have found. Always one that we re create in Norfolk with fresh mussels, a yummy bottle from the local off license and a hefty crusty loaf!
Take care and don't eat any mussels that remain closed after cooking or open in the preparation stage and have a good read of Raymond's advice.
