“Good for a short break”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013

We stayed here for two nights at short notice. They didn't have an en suite room available but we had our own private bathroom just opposite our room which was fine. Unfortunately the shower seal was dodgy which resulted in a water leak due to the shower head pointing in the wrong direction. This slightly tainted the atmosphere on our last morning as I got the impression that we were considered to be at fault. Room was very comfortable and clean. There was a good choice for breakfast and we ate at the Three Swallows pub in the evenings which is a short walk inland from Cley. The B & B is perfectly situated for exploring the North Norfolk coast.

Stayed here for 2 nights but wished we had booked for longer. The room had everything you could want, the bed so comfortable in room 2. Spotlessly clean! The breakfast was really superb - what a choice! Owners friendly & helpful. Would recommend to anyone. Cley is a lovely unspoilt village - a beautiful place to spend a few days

Stayed here for 2 nights at the end of May and had a lovely time. The rooms have everything you need for a comfortable stay. We stayed in room 2 and this was absolutely fine. Tea and coffee provided along with biscuits. The breakfast was superb and a variety of choice. The owner Pete was very knowledgable and gave us lots of ideas on how to spend our day. We ate at the nearest pub, The George Hotel, on both nights and the food was excellent. I would recommend this B & B

Booked this as an overnight stop whilst walking the coastal path from Cromer to Wells. We were a party of four and both rooms were cosy and clean with excellent facilities. The owners were extremely friendly and the breakfast was perfect to set us up for the next days walking. Cley is a beautiful unspoiled village with 2 great pubs and we will definitely be returning in the future.

We stopped here during a walk along the coast path. We were lucky with the weather and sat out in their quaint garden for our lunch. Really recommend the crab sandwich and lemon drizzle cake! Give it a try if you're in the area, Cley is beautiful and lovely shops.

Friendly welcome and cosy room, which was spotless. Unfortunately the electric shower was terrible - impossible to get a constant temperature, so it ranged from very cold to scalding hot and every temperature in between. The breakfast was excellent and made up for the shower!

Room Tip: Ask for an en-suite room

After a very cold walk across the marshes, a large bowl of local Morston mussels, with hot bread and washed down with a glass of beer was perfect. The mussels were excellent- large and clearly very fresh, in a wonderful mariniere. This is a really nice traditional tea room - except that it has a wider range of food on offer than one might expect, and it is licensed. A terrific place.
