My husband and I stayed here recently for a couple of nights whilst visiting north Norfolk. The B&B was perfectly situated to be able to explore the area and know we had somewhere clean and comfortable to come back to at the end of the day. The room was lovely and the shower was a good size and worked perfectly... More

When we arrived, the owners were not there but the young man in charge of the café was very friendly, showed us our room and offered us a pot of tea on the house - a lovely start to our stay. We had room 2, which was certainly the smallest room we've ever stayed in and I did wonder how... More

Stayed here recently for a Friday and Saturday night. Wonderful choice for breakfast, very comfortable room and most of all, very pleasant and generous owners who went out of their way to make our stay a good one. Fantastic, thank you!

Thanks for your great review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. Have you considered going to the Thursford Christmas show. It's a great show throughout December. Have a look at their website. We've been a few times well worth a visit. More

We rented the cottage that is adjacent to the B&B at the same time a friend was at the B&B. He reckoned the B&B was very good whilst we were very pleased with the cottage. In fact we used it as a base to walk The Peddars Way and North Norfolk Coast Path. We had breakfast at the B&B twice... More

When we first saw our room we were a little disappointed that it appeared small and we could hear someone walking overhead but the bed was very comfy with beautiful sheets and the shower great. We had a good sleep. The breakfast was one of the best. Thoroughly recommend a stay but 'For Sale' at time of writing.

Thanks for your good review. Sorry about the walking overhead this only happens very occasionally when our daughter visits us and has to go in the loft room. The rooms are part of a cottage and having to add en-suite facilities adds to the problem. Many guests comment that they are perfect for a short break or overnight stay. We... More

Just returned from a short break in the Church Gate Bed & Breakfast and we couldn't have enjoyed it any more than we did; from the lovely buildings and village, to the excellent food, room and service. The B&B itself is exactly the place to relax and is in a perfect location to explore the region. Would recommend 100% and... More

We have just returned from an idyllic 2 night stay at Church Gate Bed & Breakfast. From the moment we arrived, we felt extremely welcome and were truly spoilt.

We stayed in "Church Cottage" for a few days, and we had a Wonderful Time. The cottage is cosy and well equipped, and a lovely Cream Tea upon arrival. The breakfasts are excellent, would recommend to anyone wanting to visit Norfolk.

Spotlessly clean, set in a little gem of a village with plenty to offer plus wonderful breakfasts! What more could you ask for?! Good work Frank & Sheila! Would definitely recommend Church Gate B & B to others!
