Our fourth visit and again we had a wonderful time. The accommodation for B&B within the main house is lovely, comfortable and spacious, and most importantly, within such a beautiful setting. We always enjoy breakfast in the lovely dining room with views of the gardens. Highly recommended and a wonderful location for the Broads, Norwich (20 mins), Beccles etc. On... More

We stayed at the Orchards Retreat this weekend as we were attending a wedding at Elm Barns nearby (which is a fabulous venue) and wow - we were treated like royalty! Buff Houseman is the owner and we received a fabulous welcome from her who showed us to The Cottage where we were staying. The room was very spacious with... More

We stayed here for our wedding night in September, and could not have been made more welcome. My family stayed in the annexe for two nights too, and Buff dealt with every one of my queries and confirmations and last minute anxieties patiently and swiftly. The house itself is beautiful and surprisingly cosy for a large house. The four poster... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in late August. Absolutely lovely place to stay, the owners Buff and Martin could not have been friendlier or more helpful, and the house and gardens are both fantastic with many quirky and fascinating features, and Buff's breakfasts have to be eaten to be believed with lots of home-made or local produce. I would recommend... More

We stayed at Orchards Retreat for one night whilst attending a wedding reception locally. We would have loved to stay longer and explore the area more. Buff was extremely helpful and accommodating. The room was large and full of character and the breakfasts were all one could ask for. Having stayed in many B&B's this was the first to have... More

We felt like we had gone to a friends house for the weekend, Buff and Martin were such fantastic hosts. Breakfast was superb and the room was huge and beautiful. We did some brilliant bike rides and walks from the house and even had Martin on hand to fix a puncture- what a star. I'd happily go back again and... More

The title says it all, resulting in our very short stay being a delight. Buff was a lovely host who has the ability to make her guests feel both very welcomed and very 'at home'. We loved the character of the house, the views of the lovely gardens and the huge bath as well as the fab English breakfast the... More

Orchards Retreat is a wonderful ‘arts and crafts’ era house, full of character and set in a beautiful garden. I'd previously stayed there on my own and recently returned for a weekend with my husband and our small dog. Martin and Buff were wonderfully welcoming and Buff really went the extra mile in providing a delicious breakfast suitable for my... More

As with other reviews, there's very little to 'moan' about here. If you're looking for a great short break venue, the owners have got it just right!. They're charming, friendly, professional and very attentive. Our family stayed in the 3 bedroom cottage, which was self-contained and ideal for what we wanted, allowing us to prepare our own meals as necessary... More
