To me, East Anglia has always felt more remote than Lands End. And Sea Palling is as remote as it gets. A flat country won from the sea through constant struggle. This B&B is an ideal place to stay to visit this area. Despite the feeling of remoteness there is a lot to see and do in the area (and Norwich is only 30 minutes away).
The old Barn has been beautifully converted. You enter a large central living/dining area open to the roof. On either side at two levels are the bedrooms and the family's rooms. Our room upstairs was well designed and comfortable.
However, what stays in the memory about this B&B is the warm welcome from our hosts, John and Ines. They were attentive, eager to please and keen to help you with their knowledge of the local area. John cooked us a delicious dinner - thoroughly recommend this if you are staying (bring your own wine!).
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Willow Farm Barn is a beautiful, modern seaside bed and breakfast located in the Norfolk countryside. It has easy access to a blue flag sandy beach and the Norfolk Broads. The bed and breakfast provides the perfect base for a range of outdoor activities. Built in 1740 (there’s a stone in one of the walls which states this date), the barn was converted into a home in 2009. We have decorated the four rooms in a coastal style and offer a warm, friendly and relaxing stay in our home. Our hearty Norfolk breakfast will set you up for the day – whether you’re seal watching on the beach, cycling down the country lanes, boating on the Broads, watching the birds and wildlife, jet-skiing at Sea Palling, or indulging in a bit of retail therapy in Burnham or Norwich’s wonderful variety of shops. Those looking to relax indoors can do so in the stunning lounge, which is kitted out with a flat screen TV offering the full range of Freeview channels. We look forward to your stay.
