Stunning photographs of Norfolk coastline scenes feature in a new book, Hidey Holes, by Robin Whitcomb.

He wandered through Blakeney, Holkham, Wells and Cley to discover some of the county’s most hidden treasures.

“Norfolk was somewhere I thought I knew well,” Robin says, “but the coastline is teeming with the most stunning nooks and crannies.”

We are all so familiar with the picture-postcard, well-known beauty spots dotted around the coastline that we often ignore the most eye-catching hideaways.

Robin’s new guide to England and Wales’ hidden gems unearths more stunning locations, some of which he first glimpsed while putting together his last book, Home Sweet Home.

Travelling through Cornwall with his excitable chocolate Labrador Coco, Robin found himself in the diminutive Porthgwarra, a remote fishing cove used as one of the main locations in the TV series Poldark.

Hidey Holes takes in North Devon, Pembrokeshire, and the castles that line the rugged Northumbrian coastline, before Robin heads back to South Devon to visit Agatha Christie’s home at Greenway House.

Robin’s photography and light-hearted account of his journey, accompanied by landscapes by local painters, will delight readers who love local history, art and the British coast.

Hidey Holes, price £14.99, is published by Troubador Publishing Ltd on April 28; ISBN 9781785890642.
