“Excellent two night stay”
Reviewed November 10, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I have just returned from a two night stay (6-8th)Nov at the Green House B&B. We booked our stay having read previous reviews and were not disappointed. Alan and Liam are excellent hosts and we were made to feel very welcome from the minute we arrived. Nothing was to much trouble. They have made an excellent job of renovating the property to a very high standard and it is well worth it's five star rating. Our room (no 3) was spacious, comfortable and very clean.
The breakfasts were excellent with high quality produce used. We also had an evening meal on our second night which again was really excellent! We finished our meal in front of the open fire in the lounge with cheese and biscuits, coffee and chocolates.
All in all our stay was superb and excellent value for money. We would definitely recommend it to anyone and hope to return ourselves. Well done Alan and Liam for our lovely stay.

Stayed November 2013, traveled as a couple

The Green House B & B is a beautifully restored seventeenth century farm house. Almost derelict when its current owners, Alan and Liam, bought the property in 2011, the B & B opened in 2012. The building has been beautifully restored and rehabilitated, with sensitive refurbishments (new double glazed windows and central heating) and tasteful modern decor. It has been a labour of love for Alan and Liam, and it has been worth every penny and hour spent.

There are five rooms, all slightly different but each benefiting from comfortable beds and drench-style en-suite showers. Room 4 benefits from an additional bathroom over the original porch with double ended bath tub, and the largest suite has the most spacious of rooms at the back of the building.

The two lounges at the front and back of the building offer tranquil spaces to sit with a drink and the papers. The bar tariff is selective but comprehensive, and evening meals are available if booked in advance. Meals are exceptional value (three courses for £25), calling on local suppliers and seasonal Norfolk ingredients. Alan and Liam are happy to recommend local pubs and restaurants if you'd like to dine out.

No review of the Green House should fail to highlight Alan and Liam. Their attention to detail in the refurbishment of the property is matched in their attentiveness to guests. Nothing is too much trouble and they are proactive in spotting anything you might need.

The Green House is closer in standard to a boutique hotel, but it's owners have demonstrated great focus and commitment by limiting their offer to a B&B (i.e. without a public bar or restaurant).

Perhaps, in 60 Trip Advisor reviews, the best accommodation I've ever stayed in.

Room Tip: Room 4 has two bathrooms, one with a bath and one with a shower, and is slightly quieter than rooms...

Our hosts made our stay a Pleasure. Their recommendations of where to walk on the coastal path worked for us. Only Ten minutes’ drive away. Their suggestions of places to eat and take a drink if you wish a delight. We really did enjoy the area, close to Cromer, east coast, beaches and walks. The accommodation was very clean, comfortable and stylish. The breakfast room and house with its history was interesting the food and service excellent. Parking for approx. 5 cars directly in front of the house provides ease of access.

We loved the Green House. We were made to feel very welcome and were given some great recommendations for things to do in the area. The house is beautiful and our room was stunning. This place restored our faith in B&B's and we will definitely go back.

Whatever your expectations of a B&B leave them at the door! The house is gorgeous, the rooms are immaculate and tastefully furnished and the hosts are born to do this. Liam and Alan are welcoming, attentive and modest. We stayed for dinner in the lovely dining room with a roaring fire. Alan does not call himself a chef but the food equaled many of the expensive restaurants we have eaten at and he is definitely underselling himself. The cheese board by the fire in the lounge finished our evening beautifully, shoes off and curled up on the comfy chairs. There is nothing pretentious about The Green House. Another guest asked, after breakfast, what we would change, we replied not a thing.
Keep doing what you're doing guys, its perfect and we can't wait to come back.

Room Tip: All rooms are lovely. We had a full tour. The dog friendly room is just as clean and beautifully don...

We recently stayed at The Green House, looking for a weekend escape in the countryside to further celebrate 50th birthdays. Our overnight stay was booked via the internet, using other reviews to guide us. From the moment we arrived we knew that the choice was perfect.
Upon arrival we we greeted by our hosts, Alan and Liam. We can only agree with previous reviewers that they are both fantastic hosts and we felt as if we were in the company of friends. Nothing was ever too much trouble.
The property is beautifully presented, the attention to detail absolutely perfect. Our rooms were exquisitely furnished, as is the whole property. The refurbishment that Liam and Alan have undertaken of this property is stunning.
We dined at the B&B, and being the only diners that evening had the most perfect dining experience. The dining room is gorgeous, Liam's service and knowledge of cuisine were excellent and Alan's preparation and cooking, superb. All of the courses we had were delicious.
After an excellent nights sleep we ate breakfast in the breakfast room, which is separate to the dining room. Again the food was perfect, there was an excellent choice and it set us up for the day.
One other point to note, as a surprise I wanted to arrange champagne in our rooms for the birthday celebrations. My dealings with Liam prior to arrival were very straight forward, like everything else, nothing seemed too much trouble for him.
We would like to thank Alan and Liam for our stay, albeit short, and do hope to return.
