Two afternoon tea spots in Norfolk have been named among the best in the nation.

The lifestyle site Muddy Stilettos has ranked its favourite afternoon tea places with Byfords in Holt and The Orangery Tea Room in Ketteringham making the list.

Byfords in Holt, which is also a B&B, serves afternoon tea daily, with the unlimited version available on the last Sunday of every month between 2pm and 4.30pm.

The café even has a dessert table where diners can fill up their plates with as many sweet treats as they want.

The café is nestled by the lake where it offers the classics or a savoury afternoon tea including a baked camembert and herby shortbread.
