We booked two nights at Wicken View on a whim as we needed a break from the city and we were very impressed!
The photos do not do this house justice. The accommodation is furnished beautifully, and the rooms contain little extras which make your trip more enjoyable, such as, tea, coffee, short bread biscuits, magazines & thick fluffy towels. The breakfast cooked up by John and served by Ann was delicious and kept us full until early dinner.
The hosts Ann and John are your dream b&b owners, friendly and helpful without being in your face and allow you your own space. They went above and beyond for us, allowed you large dog to stay without a fuss, they recommended great places to visit and even lent my partner an asthma puffer as he forgot it!
I would highly recommend Wicken view as a peaceful, extremely comfortable and great value for money accommodation to anyone needing a break for the city, or a rural base to explore the Norfolk area.
P.s it is worth the stay purely for the large roll top victoria bath with a view!
