A hotel to come back to time after time. Comfortable rooms that are well equipped with everything you could wish for. Even though there was ample hot drink essentials in the room, we were treated to coffee and tea plus cakes on our arrival. A welcome treat from Hannah the owner. You are made to feel very welcome at all...

This high quality B&B went far beyond expectations. Everything was superbly clean and breakfasts were perfect. Fresh fruit, cereals, toast, home-made jam and cooked breakfast. Hannah and her family were so friendly and happy to advise us on places to visit. We will certainly be back in the Spring/Summer.

On arrival we were made most welcome by Hannah the owner and shown to our large comfortable room - Norfolk Lavender. The offer of tea and cake in the lounge was a lovely gesture.

Stayed for 2 nights in the rambling rose double room. Clean and comfortable. Very welcoming with delicious cooked breakfast served in the beautiful barn. We have stayed several times before and have never been disappointed. The lady serving breakfast was very cheerful and friendly. Will definitely going back again. Thankyou for our lovely stay.

Stayed the one night. Very comfortable - would highly recommend. Attractively done up - though hope that they are working on the outside areas - but the room was comfortable. Loved the power shower. Welcome coffee and cake. Very good breakfast. Friendly service
