We attended a wedding nearby and this B and B was ideally situated to the venue. Beautiful from the outside and equally beautiful from the inside. The room was cosy and well equipped. Very friendly host and staff and an excellent breakfast was served each morning. I wouldn't mind staying there in winter to enjoy the lovely lounge. Personal drawback... More

I have stayed in this lovely B&B hotel three times now, and each time loved it. I originally chose The Old Thorn Barn because it is close to Mulbarton, where my niece and her family live. The room rate is unbelievably good for all the amenities provided. Each time I return, I am given my spacious room with its own... More

We stayed on a buissnes trip and where met with a friendly and welcoming greeting they have comfortable clean spacious rooms. Not to far from Norwich about 20 minutes drive. It's a pleasure to stay somewhere with a breakfast as good as this.

The room although I had booked a single was a twin so plenty of room and well equipped with television, wi-fi and beautifully furnished including venetian blinds as well as curtains, so a good nights sleep was assured.

Me & hubby had booked a tour around the Lotus factory and a tour of Classic Lotus. Then we checked out Tripadvisor for somewhere to stay and found this little beauty!
