The Hill House Inn
Located six miles from the campsite, The Hill House Inn in Happisburgh is believed to date back to about 1550 and is recorded to have been a pub since 1610. The Hill House’s most memorable moment came in 1905 when Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote one of his Sherlock Holmes stories while taking a sabbatical here; the story involves a series of coded messages in the form of stick men and legend has it the idea arose from the son of the landlord and landlady who had created a code in which he communicated with his parents through stick men illustrations in the visitors’ book. The current owners Clive and Sue Stockton have been at the helm since 1992 and offer even the most weary traveller good food, good beer and a warm welcome.
