Owners of One of North Norfolk’s Best Cafés Retire

After discovering the joys of relaxing in their garden during the Covid-19 lockdown, Viv and Graham have decided to sell Deepdale Café and enjoy their retirement.They’ve run the busy café with Sophie for more than 6 years, in which time they’ve fed royalty, the famous, and those who love the North Norfolk Coast.

Deepdale Café is at the heart of Dalegate Market, the busy independent shopping centre in Burnham Deepdale.  With an all year round footfall, surrounded by lovely independent shops, with lots of indoor and outdoor seating, the café is a brilliant opportunity for new owners with energy and enthusiasm.

“I’ve loved welcoming visitors to eat and drink at Deepdale Café, over the last 6 years.  The enforced rest from the lockdown made me realise that it was time to wear my slippers more often, enjoy my garden, and pass on Deepdale Café to someone with more energy than we have.” Viv, owner and manager of Deepdale Café.  “Amazing to think we’ve served so many meals in the last 6 years.  Going to miss the buzz and seeing the customers, but time to move on and enjoy other things.”

With the busy campsite and hostels next door, the independent shops around the site, bus stops, the Norfolk Coast Path, St Mary’sChurch and the harbour of Brancaster Staithe all on the doorstep, the café is in a fabulous location on the A149 coast road.  Approximately half-way between Hunstanton and Wells-next-the-Sea.

The press & media report that staycations are set to boom post Covid-19, so the café is in the perfect place to enjoy Britain’s new found love of its own countryside and coastline.

“It’ll be sad not to have my regular chats with Viv, when wandering the site.  They’ve built up a good quality café, which our customers on the campsite love, particularly breakfast, setting you up for a day of walking or birdwatching in this beautiful part of the country.  We wish Viv and Graham a very happy retirement, Sophie the best of luck in her new venture, and look forward to working with the new owners.” Jason Borthwick, landlord of the café & Dalegate Market, and managing director of the next door Deepdale Backpackers & Camping.

Graham has hosted lunchtime live music at the café most months, their take-away fish & chips are simply delicious, seriously tasty selection of fresh cakes are always available, and there is an ever growing programme of events held in the village.  There is a great buzz to Burnham Deepdale, a very special corner of the North Norfolk Coast.

For anyone interested in buying this café business, they should see the full details of the sale on www.BusinessesForSale.com where they will find details of how to book a viewing appointment.

  • Rural Craft Workshops at Deepdale Farm

    Deepdale Farm has won many awards and accolades over the years for the diversification of the farm, and the team are delighted to add a new activity.  Richard Rood is now teaching green woodworking courses, a one-day introduction to green woodworking for beginners and a three-day stool making course, teaching students how to make beautiful things out of materials from the woodland on the farm.

    Richard has been a regular visitor to Burnham Deepdale over the years, demonstrating at events like the Deepdale Spring Market and selling his beautiful woodwork in the Pop Up Shops and at the Christmas Market.  While watching Richard work his pole lathe by the pop up shops, Estate Manager Nathan Nelson chatted with him about this traditional process of woodworking, and the idea of Richard running courses at Deepdale began to form.

  • Spring will be ‘Well & Truly Sprung’ in Burnham Deepdale

    What a difference a year makes, and 2017 is going to be a great year in Burnham Deepdale, with a new team running the hostels and campsite at Deepdale Farm, the return of Deepdale Conservation Weekends, the second Deepdale Spring Market, the inaugural Deepdale Hygge, and the first ever North Norfolk Coast Hygge Fair.  And that just tells you what’s happening up until the first weekend of Spring at the end of March.  Beyond that there is so much more planned, but we’ll come to that in due course.

    The new team at Deepdale Backpackers & Camping are really beginning to make good their plan to return the award winning facilities at Deepdale to their best.  The redecoration is almost complete, the new shower blocks are under construction, the electric hookup cables are in and the worst of the trench digging is done.  600m of hedges are due to be planted at the next Deepdale Conservation Weekend over the first weekend of February.

  • Times They Are A Changin’

    This week, the original creators of Deepdale Backpackers & Camping are back at the helm for the first time in seven years. Jason Borthwick and a whole new team, headed by Chris Haycock, are immensely excited about the future.

    As the old tenants leave for pastures new in Cumbria, there will be a regeneration at Deepdale. This Winter, visitors will see a whole series of improvements and additions.  Amongst those changes will be new shower and toilet facilities for the campsite, electric hook-ups on some pitches, a completely refitted visitor information centre, huge planting programme of trees and hedges, and new services such as bike hire.

  • Dalegate Market celebrates 10 years

    With so much going on in 2016 at Dalegate Market, we thought we would provide you with an update on some of our events to celebrate Dalegate Market 10th year.

    There are the regular events like OAP Wednesdays, Pasta Thursdays and Fishy Fridays at Deepdale Café throughout the year.  From May to September One Stop Nature Shop run Beginners Guided Wildlife Walks each Wednesday.

  • Dalegate Market finalist in "The Rural Oscars"

    Two Norfolk businesses are celebrating after being listed as finalists in the Countryside Alliance Awards, ‘The Rural Oscars’.  Friends Crawford White, of G. F. White Butchers in Aylsham, and Jason Borthwick, of Dalegate Market in Burnham Deepdale, have won awards in the past, but to be finalists in the hotly contested national awards is superb news.

    “We’ve won the regional butcher award in the past, but to be up for the national award is great.  Fingers crossed we’ll be celebrating with Jason and the Dalegate Market team in April, when we all attend the awards ceremony at Westminster.” Said Crawford.
