A country estate and public attraction on the Norfolk coast has won two awards for its "outstanding" work environment. 

Holkham Hall, an 18th-century estate that includes a deer park and nature reserve, has been named as one of the region's top employers. 

Holkham took home Best Large Employer and a Platinum Accreditation at the Best Employers Awards Conference held in Newmarket last week.

The estate was recognised for its "commitment to creating a diverse, inclusive, sustainable workforce and culture" for its 250 employees.

"The judges called Holkham 'an innovative and people-centric organisation'.

Last year, Holkham Hall earned a visitor attraction gold award from Visit England, ranked on its welcome, best-told story and quality food.
