I'm an author and needed somewhere tranquil to escape from the Christmas preparations to finish off a manuscript. I booked Home Farm House for three nights. It was perfect. Anne and John Smales made me feel very welcome; the breakfasts lasted me all day and there were no distractions. The countryside around the farm house is great for walks and I borrowed a dog which added to the moment.
Although new to B&B, the Smales have been entertaining at home for decades and it showed in the little things, like fresh flowers in the room.
Next time I visit I'll be taking my wife. There's lots to explore in this quiet corner of Norfolk now my book has been finished!
