Strattons is an independent boutique hotel secluded in the historic Market town of Swaffham, offering guests ‘luxury without sacrifice to the environment’.

Owners Vanessa and Les Scott met at Great Yarmouth Art College and began restoring old properties before purchasing Strattons in 1990. In two decades Strattons has developed from a run down, private, listed building into a quality award winning boutique hotel with a reputation for strong environmental ethics. It now boasts 14 sumptuous bedrooms and suites, a café deli and a 30 cover restaurant that continually wins awards for wine, food and its local sourcing ethos, serving organic and locally sourced produce in an innovative and exciting modern English style.

Art, design, luxury and comfort feature strongly throughout the hotel. Individual, sumptuous, eclectic, hip and funky bedrooms; cool contemporary style with originality.

Swaffham is situated in the Brecks, a unique and beautiful landscape stretching across Suffolk and Norfolk, ideal to enjoy healthy walking, jogging, cycling and horse riding on the ancient track ways and peaceful forest trails. The nationally recognised bird reserves within the tranquil and breathtaking North Norfolk coastline is only a short drive away, and Norwich a diverse and sophisticated city with Norman Castle, 12th century cathedral and fabulous shopping. Norwich grew out of various Saxon settlements along the river Wensum and in the Medieval period was second only to London, its wealth built on the wool and textile industries.

New to 2010 is ‘CoCoe’s’ café and deli, offering fresh, wholesome, nourishing and delicious food using local producers and suppliers. Open Tuesday to Saturday from 8am until 6.30pm, pop in for great coffee, fair trade teas, homemade cakes & cookies, light bites and tasty take out. The daily changing blackboard will feature dishes such as lamb & watercress bake, cashew nut and mixed root vegetable flan, with fig and ginger chutney, and rabbit terrine with a Norfolk ploughmans.Take home freshly baked bread, organic & bio-dynamic wines, scrummy cakes, soups, pates, salads, Norfolk cheeses and freshly prepared dishes from the menu.
