“Lovely B & B for a family stay”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

We stayed at the Moorhen's cabin, the Coot Cabin, and had a really fantastic welcome from Neil and Josie. The Cabin is excellent for a family stay, giving us the flexibility of a self-catering holiday (the cabin has a fridge, microwave, toaster and kettle) with someone else to make the breakfast! The breakfast was extremely good quality - ingredients sourced from the local butcher with nice touches, such as home-made yoghurt. They went to great lengths to help find breakfast things for our daughter, who has a dairy allergy. The Moorhen is next to the staithe at Horning, so perfect for a sailing holiday. Neil and Josie went several extra miles to make our trip memorable and our stay comfortable. I thoroughly recommend the Moorhen.

We stayed 2 nights for a canoe trip. The welcome could not have been warmer and the rooms are lovely. There's no compromise on quality, the room was very comfy and the bathroom spacious with a great shower and bath. Breakfast was delicious and you can have any variation you ask for. Can't recommend this place enough.

We have often stayed ay this B & B. The Moorhen has new owners, Neil & Josie. A lovely couple who are providing a very welcoming service. The room was very comfortable. They are very friendly and could not do enough for us. The village is beautiful. Definitely will be returning. Best B & B we have ever stayed in.

Neil and Josie have just taken over the Moorhen and we coudn't have asked for two nicer hosts! Nothing was too much trouble, the room we stayed in was lovely with a great view over the broads. If we go back to Horning we will certainly stay there again. We wish them both every success in their new venture!!!

Room Tip: Barton and Malthouse rooms are right on the front overlooking the Broads

We had a fantastic nights stay here in the lovely little guest house out the back, very charming on th eoutside and modern in the inside, great place to stay for Bewilderwood, the local pubs are just right and there is a little chinese takeaway in the village that serves tasty food. The breakfast at The Moorhen is perfect and so are the hosts (try their homemade jams). highly recommended and we will use them again this year.

Excellent hosts, David & Christine are very easy to deal with and very accommodating. We've used this B&B twice now for lodging our engineers when working locally, and they all have given very good feedback. We will certainly be using them again.

Nice rooms, really good ensuite.
The Moorhen is right on the Broads, local parking free and reasonably available.
Helpful owners who waited in for us so we could change before going to our do.
Breakfast billed as 4*, and it was too!
