We occupied 2 rooms in January in order to see the geese and waders at Snettisham for a birthday treat. Maria was very welcoming with cream cakes (and birthday balloon!) on arrival, and gave us a packed breakfast to take with us on our birding day as we were collected by our guide at 6.50! Our traditional breakfast on the... More

We stayed for two nights in January in the balcony room. A really nice room with great views across the garden to the marshes.

Excellent breakfast watching the birds from the conservatory. In the early evening we watched the Owls going out to hunt and returning to feed the young... More

I've just enjoyed a 4 night stay at this very comfortable bed and breakfast. The location is excellent with several RSPB reserves close by and various historic houses within easy reach by car. The bedroom had everything you could want and items/facilities that rarely are offered at other B&Bs such as a night light, a ceiling fan and hand cream.... More
